HMHS Class of ’66 Left Coast Reunion

May 5/6, 2017

in beautiful Carmel, California 

(mailed to everyone July 10, 2016)




Following the great success of our 50th Reunion in April, more than a few folks have expressed interest in having a west coast gathering. A fair number of us live out here in the western states, and we’re thinking that our east coast counterparts would like a good excuse to visit California, especially charming Carmel which has so much to offer the visitor: scores of great restaurants, quaint shops, a beautiful white sand beach, world-class golf, extraordinary nearby parks and sights (Big Sur, Point Lobos, Pinnacles, 17-Mile Drive, Cannery Row), and all set on one of the world’s most famous sunset coastlines.


In order to make this happen we need your input/feedback. Please hit FORWARD and type my address in the SEND TO area ( Then type your responses right under these questions. Please include your name!


1. Are you interested in coming?


2. Do these dates (May 5-6, 2017) work for you?


3. We have 15 rooms reserved at Svendgaard’s Inn, right the heart of Carmel. The rooms run about $180. Is this affordable for you?


4. Monterey Regional Airport is just 5 miles from Carmel. American, Alaska, and United all fly here, so you can make connections from just about anywhere. You can also fly into San Jose (1 hr 20 min away) or San Francisco (2 hrs away). Does transportation present a problem?


5. Would you want to stay longer and make it a California vacation? May is about the best weather month here, and the falls in Yosemite are at their fullest.

50th Reunion Traveling Banner

Dear Friends,

Now that the 50th is behind us, I have our 3'x 8' Welcome Class of '66 Bulldawgs full color banner in my closet. Dina asks, what are you going to do with it now? Hmmm, I said in my articulate way. And then, inspiration:

In return for a donation of at least $19.66 (get it?) to one of our Class scholarship funds or to the Haddonfield Educational Trust in honor of our class, yours truly on behalf of the Committee will package said banner and send it to you. Details about the scholarship/Trust are on the website under the heading CLASS GIFT. Condition: you will take a picture of yourself (with your family, your cat, whomever), at some location that matters to you (your home, a mountain high, a river wide), with the banner displayed. You will then send the picture to this Class website for viewing by all. Then you make your donation, if you have not already, and return the banner in the tube I sent it in, or forward it to the next person on the list. 

FYI, Bill Kain has first dibs as he is taking it to the Jersey Shore for his family reunion in July. We think we can have some fun with this and are anxious to see the creative pictures that we can conjure. Those of you who could not be with us in April can strut your stuff. What say you and who wants to be part of the traveling banner show and raise some funds in honor of all of us? Thanks and be very well.

Bob Greenberg



To participate in the traveling banner event, hit CONTACT US on the left side of the Home Page and provide your name and mailing address. Each participant will receive the banner, take a picture with the banner, post the picture on the site, make a donation, and mail the banner to the next name on the list.

1. Bill Kain, 427 St. Johns, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034

2. Vicki Knowles 5422 Marina Club Drive, Wilmington, NC 28409

Joan Frantz Richards

I wish to thank the reunion organizers. They did a fabulous job. A special thanks to Josh for the heartfelt tribute to the classmates that we have lost. It was an honor to be asked to speak about Sally and Ginny. It also gave me an opportunity to say a few words about my Dad. Many attendees came up to me to say what a great influence my Dad had on their lives,even some of the girls said that he had taught them to drive. He was so special to me and it was gratifying to hear that he was special to others as well. I had a wonderful time, even though I had bought my dress before I got the memo that the appropriate attire was business casual. My husband said, "Wear it anyway" and so I did. Thank you again for an unforgettable weekend.

Larry Grabiak

Two words is not enough to express how wonderful this past reunion weekend was for us all. That said - THANK YOU - for the organizers and the participants of the reunion. It was great seeing classmates, friends, and while in the area - family. Thoroughly enjoyed by all. And a special Thanks to Josh for the memorable presentation of those gone from us all...

Barry and Anne Felten

Great Evening with HMHS Class of 1966!!

A message from Kathy Howell Starnes

Everyone, if you’re not sure about attending the reunion, please consider it again. 

When I think of myself in high school, I wonder why that shy, self-absorbed kid that I was in 1966 didn’t take the time to meet each of you. When I look at our yearbook now and realize how many of you I didn’t know, I’m embarrassed and know that in some cases I’m too late. 
As Bob says in his post, so many of his favorite and dynamic friends have passed on. But that still leaves over 180 dynamic, wonderful people still here who shared some memories. It’s a rite of passage to make it your 50th anything. Our 50th birthdays came and went at warp speed and for most of us this is our chance for the next big one. 
From the all the great posts I’ve read on the website, I see that the world opened up for us after high school. We were lucky kids and fortunate adults. 
So on behalf of that long ago 18 year old kid who never could have imagined such a life, I hope to share this 50th with you.

November Update

The numbers are up and we're sailing along! Welcome to the seven classmates who just joined the web site, most of whom are coming to the Reunion. We've got 45 classmates signed up for the Reunion and 62 total attendees (classmates and spouses), so the invitation list is looking good. Five months will fly by, especially with the holidays, so please get your checks in and make your reservations at the Doubletree now (details below under 50TH REUNION).  On the web site we have 108 classmates out of the 146 for whom we have emails, giving up a 73% participation rate... amazing! Since we don't have emails for about 40 more classmates, we will send out snail mail letters shortly with reunion details. Hopefully most of those addresses will still be valid and we will get more people on the site and in the door in April. Please help by looking over the "Missing" list and contact anyone you can. The pictures being posted are great as are the stories. It maybe getting cold outside, but there's wonderful warmth being generated from this site.


Memories of the 60's (contributed by Bob Greenberg)

So, last night I attended a Doctor/Lawyer reception here in Cherry Hill ( sounds like a blast, doesn’t it?). One of the attendees was a chiropractor who played football for HMHS in the 80’s, his son is a top player on this year’s team, which is headed for the playoffs, by the way. He was wide eyed when I told him that I had played baseball for the legendary Russ Spicer. As I regaled him with stories, I was struck by a familiar feeling, not nostalgia, but as best I can explain it, a profound sense that that Coach, that time, those teams and teammates (yes, even you, dear Knucklehead) taught me some very important life lessons that have done me very well, I think. Hey, I wonder if a kid like me could get away with being nicknamed “Chico” in our PC world today.

I suppose that for each and all of us, whatever your HMHS activity or interest back then, there was time to play it out and explore as only young teens can.

This morning, I turned on WXPN, U of Penn radio, and this week, they are playing songs from a recent online poll: what is the greatest year in music? This AM it was 1964. I am not an “Oldies” freak, but I have to tell you, after last night’s conversations, to hear some of the sound track of our lives was quite warm and fuzzy.

It might be the same old song, but it has a different meaning since we’ve been gone.

Come to the Reunion in April. Let’s dance. See you there.


I have read about our "sort of" classmates who did not finish at HMHS. Sorry folks but if you attended you ARE one of us! I will be glad to see you at our reunion!

A Note From Bob Greenberg

Dear Classmates,

If you are like me, this website and the many messages posted have me thinking a great deal about my four years at HMHS. If you are like me, you might look back and realize that high school was a tough time. 

A learned man once taught me that the unconscious is timeless. I have found this to be true, and I bet you have, too. Thinking about HMHS takes us back, sometimes to a place filled with laughs, Legion, football Saturdays, romances, and great friendships. And, of course, some of the memories are not so wonderful. But we did survive, bruised and battered sometimes, and a bit wiser for the experience. We helped each other survive. That's what we did as each other's friends. The very fortunate news is that we have been given this amazing gift of still being here. I am just now coming to grips with the fact that so many of my favorite and most dynamic Class of '66 personalities have not been given that gift.

But we are still here! It is our shared experience, warts and all, that I want to celebrate.  I am much more interested in how you and I got to this place and time almost 50 years later than in the high school trivia. I want to see you now. I want to hear about your lives, your work, your joys and passions, and yes, your heartaches. I want to shake your hand, give you a hug,  and marvel at whatever has brought us to this time in our lives.

Please come next April. Sign up now. Please share yourself as you are now, with me and everyone else. We shared something in our little school in our time that no one else did. Share yourself for a few hours with the rest of us.

I’ll be damn glad to see you.

Also, if anyone reading this wants to come but has hardship issues, please contact me privately; we will see what we can do to get you here, quietly and confidentially. I am guessing that we have classmates who will help, and they will never know who they are helping.

Yours, Bobby Greenberg
