This is the most fantastic panoramic collection of Chicago views I have ever seen. Sent to us by Chuck Scharf. You can zoom around like you are in a helicopter. Please click on CHICAGO

This link to You Tube shows an 18 year old interviewing himself 38 years later. A very clever piece of work. I hope you enjoy it.

A fantastic site that tells the story of Niles township high school and Niles center from Sandi Schoene Metzinger. Click on: NTHS 
Since I started this website back in 2008 we have had over 300,000 visitors. As the years pass by the annual numbers shrink but still about 12,000/year. I hope you have enjoyed browsing through our site as much as I enjoy maintaining it. Keith

 I was saddened to hear about the passing of our classmate, Lou Hilfman. There is a wonderful obituary for Lou in the Tribune.

 Lou was a key contributor for our 50th reunion both on the committee and financially. He will be missed. 
Hi Keith,

I hope this finds you well and enjoying your summer.

The question has come up about email lists by Grammar Schools. Do you
have such a list? My class list has names and addresses but not emails.

Lincolnwood School District 74 is celebrating its 75th birthday of organizing
its own school district. Prior to 1943, all Lincolnwood kids either went to
East Prairie or Fairview Schools. (Who knew?) Several of us were talking 
because they are having a program, open to the community, on Friday evening, 
Aug. 31 from 5:00-7:00 at Lincoln Hall, featuring Merrick Garland (Former Supreme Court Nominee), who went to
Lincolnwood Schools from Kindergarten on. We thought that maybe we could do dinner afterwards, but no plans have been made. We first need help in getting the word out.

We hope you could either forward the email list or put something on the Nilehi 61
web-site.  

The main issue is that in order to attend the Lincoln Hall event, one must register
on line thru the District web-site. ...... SD74.org Registration begins Mon.
July 16, 2018 at 10:00AM.

This won't be a 75th birthday for all of us, but for those that do attend, it will
be a nice evening.

We appreciate your help,
Marilyn​

I wonder if this would work. We sell our house and stay with my classmates for the next 20 years or so. So far we stayed 1 night with Ron Hauser and 1 night with Pat Rice Foss. We have a few nights lined up with Bill Fisher in March. If there are around 900 living classmates, deduct about 6 couples who were both in my class, deduct everyone in the Chicago area ( who wants to stay here), deduct the mean and nasty ones who don't like anyone, deduct David Silverstein in Kenya (Dolores doesn't like coups), deduct the classmates who never did like me, deduct my old girlfriends (again Dolores) and finally deduct the 250 people we just can't find. That leaves maybe 3 to 6 people. Divided by 365 days we will have to stay with you at least 2 months and maybe 4 months a year. I hope the 3 to 6 of you know who you are and we do prefer tempurpedic mattresses. If you need references please contact Ron and Pat, ( well maybe not Ron I didn't mean to drink all your beer). I'll leave a list at the bottom of this entry. Please hurry we are booking up fast.
Since I wrote this blog nine years ago we have stayed with Denny Crosby, Bob and Barb Rhodes, Lloyd and Joan Kuehn, and Karen Vedder.
