Welcome to the ETHS '58 Class Website
This is the newly designed and updated web site for the ETHS class of '58. There is still some construction in progress, but you can get a feel for what's there and what's to come. You can navigate this site in two ways, depending on whether you're viewing it on a mobile device or a PC/Laptop. Depending on the width of your window or physical screen, you'll either see, between the page title and the top of the picture of ETHS, a horizontal list of pages on the site,, a series of stacked horizontal short lines, or, a column of dots. Clicking on the lines or the dots will give you a choice of the same pages you'd see if they appeared as text. Select the page you want to see by clicking on its name.
ETHS Class of '58 60th Reunion
Fellow Classmates, Alums, Reunion Fans and Lloyd Michaels,
Earlier this year, we invited all of you to attend a planning meeting in Evanston, or to send us your ideas, for our 60th Reunion next year. On the 24th of May, eighteen of your Classmates met, as promised and discussed ideas for making “Big 60” truly a Reunion to Remember. A big thank you to all who attended! Here’s what we have planned so far.
Our next Reunion will be held in Evanston, Thursday-Sunday August 15-18, 2018. Mark your calendars now! AND be sure you note that it will be in August 2018. Should you arrive, ready to have fun, in August 2017 it will be just you and Sergeant Eichler.
Our HQ Hotel will be The Hyatt House in downtown Evanston. Discounted room rates will be forthcoming as we get closer to the Reunion date and know how many of you will be planning to stay there.
THURSDAY evening there will be a Welcome Reception at the Hyatt House.
FRIDAY evening we will NOT be at Hackneys. OK, simmer down, the Planning Meeting members all agreed that while Hackneys is a “tradition”, it’s getting a bit …well … hackneyed. We will go there again sometime in the future but we have a wonderful Tavern in Evanston for a great, casual Friday evening get together this time.
SATURDAY evening will be a dinner with good food at a reasonable price and, as always, CASUAL dress is the appropriate attire. As with all the evening events this time, the dinner will be in downtown Evanston within walking distance of the Hyatt. We are considering 2 different restaurants, but If you have a favorite dining spot to recommend, please let us know!
DAILY EVENTS under consideration:
- A Golf Tournament for Thursday and Friday
- Walk-About in the new and much higher Evanston
- Lunch and Bocce at Pinstripes
- An afternoon at the races
- A Picnic on the Lakefront where all are invited and welcome to bring your lunch and mates and nice relatives. Those bringing relatives who are not nice may join the New Trier picnic IN the Lake.
- On Sunday there will be a Farewell Breakfast to allow serious hugging and a wee discussion about “Next Time”
- What else can you think of that would be fun to do? PLEASE send us your input, ideas, reactions and wishes!
SO…Mark your calendars NOW and then stay tuned for all the details as plans for our 60th Reunion of the Class of 1958 are finalized. And don’t forget to check out our class web site: ETHS58.org. We’ll post updates as we go along and, NEW just this month, a blog for thoughts and comments and much more.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you and to celebrating with you at our 60th ETHS Class of 1958 Reunion next year!
