Class of ’68 50th Reunion: Plans Are Shaping Up!
 Have you marked the 50th Reunion events on your calendar?
Friday, Sept 28, 2018, 7:00 – 11:00 pm
Wiley’s Grill at Coyote Run Golf Course in Flossmoor
Saturday, Sept 29, 2018, 6:00 – 10:00 pm
Flossmoor Country Club
Here are just a few highlights of what the Planning Committee has in store for you.
Paying It Forward
We will provide a 50th Reunion gift to H-F from the Class of 1968. This might be a scholarship or a purchase to benefit today’s students.  Donna Talamonti-Nylander will be lead the effort.  When online registration opens up in a few months, look for a donation page on the website.  
H-F Tour
We are planning a tour of HF for the morning of Saturday, Sept 29.  See if you can find your old locker!  Chris Julius will be coordinating this chance to revisit the halls where you spent your glorious youth. 
Golf Outing
Our newest Committee member, John P. Hart, is organizing an afternoon on the links for you golfers (and your spouses).  We have secured a number of tee times at Coyote Run Golf Course (the old Cherry Hills) for Friday, Sept 28th.  The cost is modest at $25 to walk and $35 to ride, and we'll have a drink cart available.  If you are coming from a distance, you can use to have your clubs delivered to the course or to wherever you are staying.  Contact John at to sign up!
Memorabilia Display
Do you have any favorite pictures of events, old copies of the Star newspaper, an H-F jacket, a sports uniform, a political campaign button, or a movie poster from back in the day?  Please consider bringing these for display at our Flossmoor Country Club event, Saturday, Sept 29.  Email Bill Armstrong ( – put “HF Reunion” in your subject line) if you can add to our collection so he can track all loaned items. A photo of your item(s) would be helpful. We will set it all up just prior to the event start and return your items to you at the end of the evening. 
Digitized Memories
Robert Faerber will be collecting digitized photographs from the 1960s to display on our class website.  Watch for more details on how you can contribute your images.
Our Greatest Treasure
Our most valuable asset is your contact information.  If we stay in touch we will stay together.  For past reunions we had gathered email or street addresses for about 75% of the class.  This year, we called on the services of the H-F Alumni Office, and they supplied us with their own database of ’68 alumni.  Merging this information has really paid off.  We have a roster of 646 still living graduates or people who spent some of their high school years at H-F (sadly, 45 of our classmates are known to have passed).  Of that total, we now have email or street address (or both) information on a whopping 90% of our classmates!  Think we will have a big turnout for the 50th?  You better believe it!
Sincerely, your 50th Reunion Planning Committee,
Bob Presnak (Co-Chair), Don Rawitsch (Co-Chair), Bill Armstrong, Paul Connery,
Robert Faerber, Max Hannum, John P. Hart, Susan Bodnar Jaros, Chris Julius, Nancy McElroy,
Donna Talamonti Nylander, Phil Pagoria, Janet Reed, Sally Schneider
