 I don't dare list all the names of the members on the reunion committee in the event that I forget one, but I just want to thank you all for  your hard work. The evening was perfect. The food was delicious, the music was great, the decorations were beautiful and the conversation was fun! Bob and I had the most wonderful time. It was fun to reconnect with high school friends and remember stress-free high school days. Thank you all very much. 

Warmly, Judy and Bob Carter

PS I will treasure my beautiful reunion mug for a long time!

It was so great to have the opportunity to reconnect with everyone at the reunion.  Kudos to the organizing committee and their hard work.

I would like to ante up my two cents worth too.
Thank you Lisa, Barb, Sandy, Donna and I know many others for putting on such a wonderful event. This was the most amazing display of turning something out of nothing since maybe the pilot of “Keeping up with the Kardashians”.
And what a fun time! 
It was great to catch up with everyone (including a couple of guys from the old ‘hood), and to join in with a bunch of fellow 55 year olds getting their freak on to a truly outstanding performance from the band (loved that Santana was in their repertoire!). I daresay there was more dancing going on last Saturday night than… well… in all of our High School Dances combined. Naturally, we all look just a tad older (note the use of the word "tad"). But everyone looked so good that I swear you’ve all got a portrait in the attic that’s aging in your stead.
For what it’s worth, I also thought it was a great touch to include the display of our classmates that have matriculated into the great hereafter into the ballroom. It made it seem as though they were sharing in our reverie too.
Sure the food and all was nice. But thanks especially for bringing everyone together, the laughs, glad handing, hugs and stories.
See you at the 42nd (What is that anyway… the Linoleum Anniversary?)!

I want to extend a big thank you to the team that organized the 50th, I had a wonderful time reconnecting after 50 years. A very special shout out to Barbara and Sandy who helped me overcome my reluctance to attend, they were very gracious. If I did not get to talk to you I apologize there were so many people and the night just flew by.... Warmest regards to everyone, John Igoe

Cl     The Class of '73 50th Reunion was a huge success! It was great to reconnect with friends and classmates, some of whom I go back to elementary school with! Even after all of these years, as soon as we started reminiscing about some of our High School antics, we picked up right where we left off! Also, the beautiful tribute remembering those who are no longer with us. A special thanks to my lifelong friend, Barbara Lombardo and the entire reunion committee, who all worked so hard to put this amazing event together. Wishing the Class of '73 continued happiness, success and good health in the years to come! All the best, Brian O'Hara

A big thank you to Barbara, Sandy and the rest of their crew for all of their efforts in putting on the 50th Reunion. It was a homerun. I had a blast catching up with classmates from Harris School & Pollard, teammates from CYO basketball and NHS baseball. I wish everyone continued good health & happiness as the years roll on and hope that the next Reunion will as successful as the 50th.

Greetings Fellow Classmates NHS73!

Thanks to all the hard-working organizers of our special 50th reunion event. It was a fabulously fun night.  Great to connect with friends and classmates from years past. It was wonderful to learn about the various twists and turns we took in life to bring us together once again after 50 years.  As the turnout was spectacular, many reconnections were missed. Next time?  Best wishes in life to all!  

I'd be delighted to help if there is a consensus for a 55th!
