The Reunion Part II

New Trier High School (also known as New Trier Township High School or NTHS) is a public four-year high school with its major campus located in Winnetka, Illinois, U.S.A. and a second campus in Northfield, Illinois, with freshman classes and district administration. Founded in 1901, the school is well known for its large spending per student, academic excellence, and its athletic, drama, and music programs. New Trier's primary campus in Winnetka is used by sophomores, juniors, and seniors, while the freshmen attend classes at the Northfield campus. The school serves Chicago's North Shore suburbs of Wilmette, Glencoe, Winnetka, and Kenilworth, Northfield, and Glenview.[6]

The school is named after the city of Trier, Germany, and New Trier's logo depicts the Porta Nigra, symbol of that city. The Porta Nigra was built between 180-200 AD and is the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps. (pour MOI)

The Reunion was held at a local hotel as it was 5years ago. The chief difference was attendance-the 40th had over 300 attendees and this time ...54. The evening was lively and entertaining and allowed for more conversation instead of just schmoozing.

In addition to a DJ providing old standards from the 60's, our resident Broadway persona Sheila Rae provided a great song which she wrote about our class-very fun.

On Sunday morning a brunch was provided and allowed Sheila and Rick (my buddy) to share some "theater talk".

On Friday, Many folks gathered at Elder Lane beach (some great parties) to have a pre-party-picnic. I did not attend but heard that it was well attended. The view is north to Tower Road beach...aahhhh.

I had a good time and was glad that I had attended and reconnected.On Sunday morning I headed back to Wisconsin on Sunday morning to renew my scheduled "personal reunions".
