Monroe High School
Class of 1966

Every year Dave Gow hosts a Holiday gathering at the Elmwood Inn. This year it is on Sat. December 14th at 3:00. No RSVP is needed, just stop by to chat with whoever shows up. As Dave points out, several class mates have passed away this year, so getting together and celebrating becomes more and more important. So, if you live in the area ... plan to stop in. And if you happen to be visiting ... please take the time to stop in and say, "Hi!" 

You may not know that Monroe has undergone major renovations - and I mean MAJOR!. School #15 was razed, and the main building was extended all the way to Averill Ave. The poster below shows the new facade that stands where School #15 used to stand. I believe that the expansion was mainly to expand the phys ed facilites (to make a full-size gym). And what used to be the paved area outside the lunch room is now an athletic field - no more home games in other school's stadiums.

This countdown calendar is just a reminder that, although we have had our 50th High School Reunion (who would have thought!), we are not done. It is time to start looking toward our next gathering - probably for our 55th reuion in 2021. We would like your help planning it - don't be shy! We also would like ideas and suggestions on what we should do.

It is also important that you keep in touch. Please visit this web site on a regular basis to make sure your contact info is up to date, and to share important milestones. Also - please let us know of any deceased classmates that you know of (how sad to ask that), and periodically check the "Missing Classmates" list to see if you can help track any of them down.

Stay tuned - the best is yet to come!

1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats.
2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the
second person.
4) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
5) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandma's lap.


1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge... mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.


1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're
down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking
chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers
to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.


1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.

Thanks!! For All Your Help!

The 50th reunion of the MHS Class of 1966 was an unqualified success! the Reunion Committee worked very hard to ensure that our 50th was a reunion to be remembered. During the planning the committee decided to try to keep the events as affordable as possible. The challenge was balancing affordability with value. To help accomplish those goals, we asked classmates to underwrite some of the expenses - and people were extremely generous. The Reunion Committe, on behalf of the entire class, would like to thank the following people for their generous financial support:

  • Friday night appetizers - (thank you Chris Thurber Knupp! and Connie Hawkes Stockanus)
    Open Bar - (Thank you Dave Lippa)

    DJ - (Thank you Dave Lippa - AGAIN)
    Cake - (Thank You Juanita Moniger Davis)
  • Sunday Picnic Lodge - (Thank you Ray Tierney, Jon and Carol Tomson)
  • Keepsake album -  (Thank you Rich Warshof)
