Phil and Bob,
It was so much fun seeing you enjoy the events. Though the high falootin party was memorable and fun, I thought the intimacy at Bousqet’s gave us a chance to just talk and catch up.
Phil, my favorite thing at the birthday party was seeing you, Wayne and Richard make good on your football bets via Facebook, with some high falootin whiskey!!

My wife and I had such a wonderful and memorable time at the Friday night gathering at Bousquets and the reunion dinner Saturday night to reconnect with old and new friends.
Huge kudos to Jeanne and her great committee (Dennis, Maria, Bob, Wayne, Chris, etc.) for all their hard work!
The video at the dinner was very moving- thanks, Denny- and the reunion of classmates for our respective grammar schools was great fun. Thanks, Bob, for the mini golf lesson you gave my wife and I at the GEAA outing.
It was touching to see Tom O’Neil there; thanks Ed for bringing him.
My wife thought the reunion was one of her real highlights of our vacation back to the northeast. Great weather!
Thanks and God Bless the class of ’65!

Wow! What a wonderful weekend. Many thanks to the committee for making it so memorable. I was able to connect with many old friends that I had not seen in 50 years. Well worth the trip. A special thanks to Jeanne who has spent the last 50 years keeping track of all of us.

Hi PHS Class of 65,
The 50th reunion was an incredible event and now we are all settling in to the age of retirement for most . Our web site lost steam after the reunion and I think Facebook may be responsible to some extent. It is fun to keep connected with classmates and would like to see our web site used for more interactions.
There are still many who are not on Facebook and this site provides an alternative.
Please share your thoughts and comments.

Sometimes words cannot express how wonderful a night was–this is one of those times. Many memories from years ago with some close friends and re-connecting with those with whom we have shared so much. Very proud to have been a small part of a committee that did such a wonderful job.

The Reunion was wonderful – my husband said it was the best event he’s been to. Jeanne and the entire committee get huge thanks and kudos for all the work and effort you put in to make it nice for the rest of us. And the video Denny was exceptional – to think you were able to pull together all those old memories and make the music fit the scenes so well. Thank you thank you thank you all!

I want to thank Ed Klemanski for bringing Tom O’Neil to the reunion. I know it meant so much to him, but most of all connecting with you Ed. It touched my heart as it did many others. Plus it was great seeing you (Russel Crowe).

I went to Pittsfield schools (Plunkett, SJHS) until 9th grade when my family moved to Dalton and I graduated from WRHS. My main contact with my Pittsfield friends was at the Music School. It was even a “toll call” to Pittsfield at the time. I really appreciate being kept in the loop, thanks especially to the efforts of Maria Zuckerman and Jeanne Boino, and all the “hot spots” featured in this wonderful video brought back very dear memories to me, too. My three sons ended up being PHS graduates, so things do eventually come full circle. God bless the class of ’65!

Thank you seems so insignificant for all the hard work you (Jeanne) and the committee put into the event. And Dennis, your video was incredible … I am so lucky to have been part of the class of ’65. Good thing my mother couldn’t stand having me at home anymore as a child (no comment); otherwise, I would have been in the class of ’66! Susan

Thank you for a wonderful event. It was fun to visit PHS and to see the changes on North Street. A great evening of fellowship. Thanks to everyone who worked on this – it was a hit.

Wonderful wonderful reunion. The love in those rooms, at those events, wraps over me like a warm blanket. All our hard edges are softer (mostly). Thank you dear classmates for letting the love you are shine through your eyes.

I feel blessed to have been born at a time that I was able to become a member of this group, this tribe, class of ’65. Janis

Evening,
My name is Sarah Pavin and my father is Ronald Pavin and he was apart of the 1965 class. I just watched the video you posted and it brought a tear to my eye! My dad lost his battle to pancreatic cancer three years ago today and I know he would have loved to have been apart of the reunion. Thank you for sharing and giving me a glimpse into his life as a young man.

I’ll be at the Bosquet function Friday evening, but will miss the Satuday & Sunday functions, as I’ll be in RI for a wedding, returning Sunday too late to join in. Hope to see many of you Friday evening. (Retired 3 years ago & moved back to Lenox, so we’re anchored locally again & love it!)

Thanks to Jeanne Boino for finding my mom’s senior picture…she was actually a 1964 graduate, but went on to the nursing program in 1965, which I think is why she was listed in the newspaper that year. Thanks for sending me the yearbook picture, Jeanne!

I believe my mom, Audette Heno (Stokes), was a 1965 PHS graduate. She is listed in the Berkshire Eagle (June 21, 1965) as such. She died in 1985 at the age of 38, but I don’t see her on your “In Memoriam” list or the list of missing graduates. She was married to Rick Stokes, another 1965 graduate, for 13 years, and they had 2 children, Kimberly Ann Stokes (Egeland) and Richard Michael Stokes. She was survived by her 2 children, her parents Earl and Mary Heno, and her sister Amy Heno (Kari).

Less than one month away and the 50th Golden Dome reunion will begin. Everyone on the committee is working very hard to make this one the best yet and it is requiring creative minds to do so!

Keep in mind that this an all time record attending for this class, or any other class that we know of! We have an agenda of sorts for all events but there may be some spontaneous moments that we can take advantage of.
The elementary school pictures seemed like a simple task to handle as we were sitting around a table discussing it this past winter.. In reality, it is going to be like conducting an orchestra in the ballroom.
The list is now broken down by schools and gathering everyone will be quite an undertaking..There are 19 schools and Hibbard, Dawes and Pomeroy each have over 20.Still working on the logistics of doing this!! I will have the school list on me and if I see that we can get a school group together at Bousquets or the tour, please jump in and smile!
It is very important to check the web site often as the shuttle, designated parking lot and other parking areas will be finalized very soon.
And ladies, don’t forget to wear some fancy hats!!

This is my first visit to the message board and I am so excited to see that so many are planning on coming to the reunion. It’s just a little over a month away. We had two meeting this weekend to final up a lot of the festivities and hope that everyone that comes connects with old friends and new friends.

I just looked at all the classmates that have passed and it is so sad. RIP and you will all be remembered at the 50TH.

My wife and I are going to be playing in the golf outing on Sat., at noon. Hope a bunch of you will be joining us. Had a nice chat with Bob Dastoli the other day.
Having been in Phoenix for many years, we’re looking forward to some great weather for reunion weekend. I haven’t played the GEAA course since I was a kid.

Classmates: April 20-21

My 97-year-old aunt is recovering from pneumonia, but is not doing that well. She is in the North Adams Commons, 175 Franklin St, North Adams. I”m told she spends most of her time sleeping.

As a theater musician, my day off is Monday, and I’ll be going to North Adams this Monday/Tuesday (4/20-21) to spend time just being there. From DC to Albany and then by car rental to North Adams.

I’m looking forward to our class reunion, and if anyone wants to stop by at the Commons to say hi, that would be swell. My cell is 202-997-3093.

The video is just fabulous, Dennis — captured so much of what I remember as we traversed the halls of PHS. Thanks so much for this labor of love. And Jeanne, as always, your energy and vision have provided leadership for our class, and we are all grateful. Looking forward to reunion. Hard to believe it’s been 50 years since graduation!

Dennis, thanks so much for putting together an awesome website. Fabulous job. And thanks to our fearless leader Jeanne for her tireless work in keeping the class of ’65 united and informed of everything. And let’s not forget all the wonderful people on the reunion committee who help Jeanne with all of this.

I haven’t missed a reunion yet and look forward to our 50th. I remember when my mom went to her 50th and I thought she was SOOOO old at the time.

Hello to all of the class of 1965. I am right now in an assisted living residence in clearwater fl and have been so for three yearsr. I have had several misfortunes in my life as I am sure we all have had: I am widowed twice, first from Robert Perrault in 1996, secondly to Phil Brown in August of 2010. Tragedy struck earlier as my beloved first born child, Marilyn Jean Perrault was killed in an auto accident in June of 1989. I am and have been a survivior and through my brother’s efforts was able to go over the deceased list iin which several broke my heart. I am still in a good frame of mind and generally happy. Good luck to all classmates and God bless! Bev Sears

Ditto to what Shane wrote recently. It is indeed sad to hear of so many of our classmates’ passing. Thanks, Wayne, for keeping up w/ this list. I was shocked and saddened to see a number of my high school friends deceased.
My wife, most of our kids and grandkids live here in sunny Phoenix. My wife and I are enthusiastically looking forward to being at my 50th in June.
Thanks for the great gatherings, etc. you have planned.
Special thanks to Dennis and Jeanne!

Wonderful website. I plan to be there next year. Having left Pittsfield immediately after graduation, I have missed out on the local connections that I have heard so much about.
Thanks Dennis for this website.
Thanks Jeanne for being our Social Chairwoman for Life.
Y’all connect with me on Facebook if you have not already. I enjoy vicariously living within your lives via those FB photos and comments. FB= John Lovejoy .(Duh!) John

Being involved with PHS reunions for the past 50 years has been an interesting and fun project. I have to say that this time around has been the most rewarding.
In the past few weeks, I have heard from classmates who haven’t been back in 50 years and they are coming! I can’t tell you how excited I am for them to see what a unique and fun class we are and that it doesn’t matter if you don’t remember names or faces. We want to offer you a chance to see the familiar places, the new places and walk in your old footsteps. Most importantly, it will be a time to make some new friends that walked the same footsteps in our hometown and in our home under the Golden Dome!
This reunion in some respects, will be a homecoming! Can’t wait to say Welcome Home!

Kudos to Dennis for the web site as well as for the video and thanks to Jeanne for all her hard work. Lost my yearbook shortly after graduation and it was a treat to view the yearbook on the website but bittersweet in not remembering faces and names after so many years. Hope to finally attend my first reunion.

Looking forward to our reunion. Hoping to see some new faces (Lenny). I’m afraid by the next reunion we will have lost some friends. That makes this one the one to attend if at all possible. Contact a friend you haven’t seen in a while and invite them. Thanks for all the effort so far, Jeanne, Dennis and the others.

Dennis Morris! It was fun “chatting” the other night and it is one of the perks of doing this.

Chuck emailed me that if you’re still fishing, he’ll come to the reunion too!!

The missing list changes everyday but have found new addresses for most that were returned.

I’ll send the list to Dennis so he can get on the site.

See everyone in June for a memorable “Golden Dome” Week-end!

Dennis,
My first trip to the new web site and it’s perfect!
For anyone here for the first time, please watch the video that Dennis presented at the 45th Reunion. It is a sentimental walk down Memory Lane and shows our hometown the way it was in 65 .
Save the date cards were sent out a few days ago and if you didn’t get one, please let me know.
Stayed tuned for reunion upates!
