THE MHS Class of 1962 WELCOMES you!
(If this is your first visit to this website, please click on "GETTING STARTED".)

 TT This website was created in March 2013 as a project initiated by the 50th Year Class Reunion committee.  Brad Suffes, a member of the class, designed the pages and maintained the site until his untimely death in December 2020.  We very much wish to keep the website a good place to share memories of Montclair High School and stay in contact with classmates. 

After creating your own profile, you will be able to view all classmate profiles along with other content on the site.  You'll have access to all the Member Function buttons on the left side navigation panel and you'll be able to upload current photos or photos from back in the ‘wonder years’ of 1959 – 1962. 

This site is designed to be a class reunion everyday.  Add it to your favorites and watch for changes and announcements.  Share your memories here and stay up to date with other members of the Class of 1962!

Please let us hear from you.  We will share updates, memories, witty remarks, well-earned wisdom, and observations of our current moment with the class. 

We have been around long enough to know that life is short and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who walk the way with us. So, let us hear from you

Hello, again.

If you’d like to join the reception and dinner to mark our 60th MHS Reunion this coming Thursday, May 19 at 5:30 at the DoubleTree Inn on Rte 46 in Fairfield, NJ, please communicate with Bill Adams before noon on Monday.  There is still time to register.

And Anthony Montesione had a great suggestion.  For those unable to attend the Reunion event in person and for those who will attend, we could each make a short congratulatory video on our phones, remembering our days in Montclair and what happened after that, maybe no longer than one minute.  You could send them to me and I could gather them on a YouTube channel or some other site, and send you a link.  That way we could all share in this remarkable event.  I participated in a similar exercise about one year ago and am sure I can figure out the details.  If all else fails, I have clever children and grandchildren that can help!

So, please, go to it. 

Look forward to seeing you in New Jersey or virtually.

Just one week until the main event of the 60th Reunion of our MHS Class of 1962.  The reception and dinner will take place at the DoubleTree Inn off of rte 46, beginning at 5:30 PM on Thursday, May 19, 2022.  If you live locally, we hope you will drop by.  Please let Bill Adams know if you will be attending. 

We realize that many may not be able to attend in person.  It is a complicated time, and we are all a lot older than we were.  We will remember and toast all of you who are not there.  You are an important member of the class.  If you would like to send a message to the class, please email me.  I will collect them and present them at the event and on the web-site. 

In addition, if you are in the vicinity on Wednesday, May 18, and would like to join a group of us for dinner in Montclair, please communicate with Kathy (Goehring) Havens or Bill Adams. 

Congratulations to you all on your 60 years of life after high school.

Vincent Tango, a fellow classmate, passed away recently.  A copy of his obituary has been posted on the "In Memory" page along with images of a couple of his paintings.  Classmates can also leave personal comments on the "In Memory" page.


The results are in from the previous poll:

Of our skinny-dippers out there, 21 were ladies and 27 were gentlemen.  Guys win!

There is a new poll availble for voting.

The Reunion Committee will meet during the month of May to interview the applicants for the Class of 1962 Scholarship.  Watch here for the names of the winners to be announced.
