Greetings my friend and welcome to our website! 

To Our 1966 NHS Classmates and Guests: 

Hey All, just wanted to let you know that at our last meeting we decided that we should keep our website for another 5 years.  We have the funds to take care of this and it was concluded that this would be the easiest way to keep in contact with as many classmates as possible.  Please continue to check the website on a regular basis to update your information as well as find out the latest class news.  If you haven't updated your profile in a while now would be a good time to do so and also if you know any classmates that have not completed a profile please urge them to do so.  We are having another get together (just for fun) on March 10th at 6 pm at Merle's Steakhouse in Alma.  Please mark your calendars and try to join us.  I will send you a reminder closer to the date.  Thanks for all your support and consideration.



Thank you for attending our reunion and renewing friendships and  sharing your memories with all of us.  We, as your reunion committee, hope you have all arrived back home safely and that all is well with you.  We all showed up, we laughed and hugged and sometimes shed  a few tears, remembering the good old days when we were young and carefree, "innocents" who were going to get out there and take on the world!  And we did!!  We have doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, bankers, business owners, coaches, artists, musicians, accountants, builders, mothers, fathers, grandparents, great-grandparents, classmates raising their grandchildren, executives, secretaries--you name it, we've done it, and done it pretty well! We all have handled whatever came our way the very best we could.  Although there may be some regrets, we are thankful to the good Lord for his guidance and blessings through it all.  We are thankful to be alive and still kicking!

Sometimes, it takes courage to assemble again with your "young friends" from your childhood, but it was well worth it!  Kudos to all the brave souls who came!  To get to see all of you again, to hear your stories, to know how you are, to hug you again, to look again at you, to see your shining eyes, and see you smile and laugh again, to bask in the warmth of each one of you--it was magical and wonderful. 

We love and appreciate all of you.  Thank you for all you did to come and share this wonderful time with us.  You are always in our prayers and thoughts.  It was truly our pleasure to work together to create what we hoped would be a lasting, happy memory that you so richly deserve.  Thank you so much for coming.

Y'all come see us--you hear!

Warmly and with love,
The 2016 NHS 1966 Reunion Committee

Our Reunion is upon us!

Important Change Notification regarding Saturday Morning 10/22/2016 Breakfast at UAFS Campus:
We’ve had to make a change of venue for the breakfast due to numbers!  So, we’ve moved to the Food Court in the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center.  I’ve attached a campus map you can email or print and hand out Friday night.  Your group should try to park in Lot D2, D3, or D1.  They will enter the west end of the building under the canopy and breakfast will be at the far end of the building.

Wow, can you believe this year marks “50” years since we walked the halls of NHS as students?  Who, back then, ever envisioned the reality of this day?  Well my friend that day has arrived seemingly out of nowhere.  It seems like the older and slower we become the faster time passes us by, and speaking of time, “IT IS TIME TO PARTY”.

The committee has been working the past several weeks putting together plans for our “FIFTY YEAR REUNION”.  The dates selected for this Grand Affair are October 21 & 22, 2016.  So mark your calendar and make plans to attend.

Cost for the two day gala is $66.00 per person or $120.00 per couple.  This cost covers your meals for both days.  We need your reservation by October 1, 2016.  This may be accomplished by sending a check or money order made out to: “NHS Class of 1966” and mailed to the following address:

                        NHS Class of 1966
                        PO Box 11073
                        Fort Smith, AR 72917

Please include the following information:
  1. Name of person/persons attending.  If your spouse is an alumni and the year.
  2.  Your choice of Prime Rib or Rosemary Chicken for the Saturday evening meal. 
At this time we have a couple of requests:
  1. Please click on the “Classmates” and enter your information; address, email, etc for future use /get togethers
  2. Help us get the word out about the reunion by sharing this information plus website with any classmates you have contact with.  There are several classmates we have little or no information for.  So “SPREAD THE WORD”
This event like so many other events in our life is a onetime opportunity. Please make every effort possible to be there.  We value the presence of each and every one of you.  Together we are the sum total of the class of 1966.  Together we made the class of 1966 what it was and still remains even today.  Each of you are very special, and we look forward to seeing you at the celebration.  If you have any questions feel free to call Marilyn Selby (479)651-4020; Gary & Judy Newton (479) 461-0417, Bob Crouch (479)790-5781.
