Our 50th Reunion is still planned for the dates below until further notice. 

All monies already paid will remain in the account until our reunion happens.

Thank you!!

 Our 50th Reunion.

 Dates for the reunion ARE June 5th & 6th, 2020.  A class email went out Oct.15th, 2019 and a second went out January 2nd, 2020 on how to book your room.  INFORMATION ON HOW TO BOOK YOUR ROOM AND PAY FOR THE REUNION IS NOW ON THE MENU TO THE LEFT OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT, after May 5th the rooms will be released back to the general public.  You will not get the discount by booking on the internet.  If you did not receive the reunion information that means we do not have your updated email.  Committee members are working on contacting those via Facebook who have not updated their profiles, we want to make sure everyone receives class information.  

Ticket information is now posted on the menu link to the left of this announcement. Please help make our reunion successful, it is a lot of work putting these reunions together, please try and attend.

Money  is needed to have a reunion. Please go to the donate button on the right side of this page to donate.  Or you can send me a paper check in the mail made out to me, My email address is on my profile page.  Email me for my mailing address.  I am currently getting quotes for pricing.  Everything has to be paid upfront.

We are planning to have the 50th at the Dolphin Beach Resort,  St Pete Beach, like at our 40th.

Thanks for your support.

  Please update your profile. Profiles must be updated every 6 months.  An automatic email is sent out by our website to remind you.  If you have not received that email it means we don't have your updated info or you have not visited the website in a while.  Our 50th reunion is just around the corner in June of 2020.  Please make sure we can contact you.
Because we are getting many request's from other graduating classes we are going to place their website address on here for your info.  we do not know if their websites are up on the web but you can check.

Website contact  information:
If you are a family member of a classmate or a friend of one of our classmates, we like hearing from you but we can not let you on the site.  Our site is secure and we protect the privacy of our classmates.  If you would like to contact a classmate or if you are a family member of a deceased classmate please contact me, NEHI committee chair Karen Gage Shaarda at  I will be happy to see what I can do for you.

To date, our paypal account which this site is linked to and where your donations go that are done via the website, is still good and when the time comes for the 50th reunion I can draw it out of paypal.  Paypal also collects fees automatically from each transaction which are deducted from the donation amount.  The only way there are no fees charged is if you send me a check made out to me and I use my personal checking account or credit card to pay for things for the website and reunion which I am currently doing. 

The 50th reunion is very near!.

 Reunions are popular at this hotel.  Please pencil in June 5th and 6th , 2020 for our reunion so you are sure to attend.  In order to get the room discount there must be at least 20 rooms reserved. 

Donations are also needed to keep the website running and to pay for supplies and deposits to hold dates with venues, caterers and DJ's for future events.

Venues large enought to hold 200 people or more cost money and they want their money up front.  Contracts have to be signed and deposits are non-refundable. To get a large enough venue you have to book at least a year in advance.  Even for our 60th B-Day Bash contracts had to be signed with the restaurant, they needed a head count in advance so they can make sure they have enought food and staff on hand to handle the event. Their max amount of people for the room we had was 100.  For smaller events like our 45th a place like Fergs and Quaker Steak & Lube are perfect for under 50 people in a reserved room.  But they need advance notice also with some sort of head count.  They will also do a group order if we want that that case we would have to charge in advance.  All monies for food orders in advance include food price, tip, sales tax and a service fee.

took place MARCH 13th - 14TH, 2015

Friday, March 13th - Quaker Steak   7 - 10

Our 60th Birthday Bash in 2012 was a rousing success!

 Pictures are posted under "Photo Albums"

We have removed off this site the video montages as the company serving them is going out of business. We have downloaded them to a CD and will give them out at the 45th and 50th reunion.

We are working hard for another great event!

Welcome to the Northeast High Class Of 1970 web site. Our 40 year reunion in July 2010 was a smashing success and we are excited about new events that will be planned leading up to our 45th reunion in March of 2015. Keep watching for news about upcoming events....and until we get together again keep in touch with classmates and friends using this site. 

Our 60th Birthday Bash on June 23rd, 2012 was great fun and so many classmates and spouses attended...we had a great time talking, eating and taking pictures...some continued the party at Hooters in Pass-A-Grill and others went to classmates homes to visit.  Take a look at the photos under "Photo Albums" Tropical Storm Debby never dampened our Viking Spirit!

We are looking forward to our 50th Reunion on June 5th & 6th, 2020!!!!

A huge thankyou to all the Reunion Committee Members who spent their time and effort in making the 40th Reunion the very best. I don't think it could have been improved upon, it was that good.



To the Class of NEHI 1970 Reunion Committee and All the Classmates:
    My brother Bill Criswell called and also  sent me many pictures of your reunion this past weekend.  Kudos to the committee for putting on a first class party!   He says it was  an unforgetable experience!  Looking at your faces bought many  flowing tears thinking about you 40 years ago--roaming the halls of NEHI with so many hopes and dreams!  None of us had any life experience--broken hearts maybe --but, not a clue of the paths our lives would lead us down or to!  Those of you who reconnected or made promises to email, call or get together with each other--make sure you hold to those promises!  Start praying without ceasing for those who are sick-- or faced with difficulties --make that person's day!
    Please think of us--  the NEHI Class of 1971--- as we start to prepare for our reunion next summer. I can only hope that my classmates will look beyond a few wrinkles, extra  pounds, and gray hairs to come together and celebrate!!!
