75th BIRTHDAY PARTY UPDATE
May 31, 2022
Class Reunion PHS 1965
The Covid Virus sidetracked our 55th reunion celebration, twice.
Third times a charm, so we are planning a 75th Birthday Party!
The Birthday Party is a buffet luncheon at the
Pittsfield Country Club on South Street
September 17th, 12 Noon until 4:00 p.m.
Menu choice is chicken and fish, with soup, salad and assorted sides,
coffee, cookies and cash bar.
The “Meet and Greet” will be held September 16th, 6:00 p.m. at a new venue:
Tavern at the A, the former GEAA Clubhouse on Benedict Road.
We are hoping that the spirit of the previous gatherings at Bousquet will carry
over to this new venue and create more memories.
A cash bar and an assortment of appetizers will be available.
Our events in the past have always been memorable and well attended. We are
confident you will enjoy this opportunity to reconnect and reflect on our PHS years.
Continue to check this website or our
Facebook page, PITTSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL 1965, for updates and
information on lodging and covid protocols for this area.
Facebook has proved to be an essential tool for reconnecting classmates.
Dress is casual and Price per person is $50.00 for both events.
Deadline for replying is July 31, 2022

PERSPECTIVE ON A 55th
February 2, 2018
After a wonderful 50th reunion and a fun filled ‘65ers turning 70 party at Bousquet’s it’s time to start thinking about our 55th. But let me back up for a moment. Last July before the 70th party the reunion committee got together for our annual outing at Goose Pond hosted by Bill and Maryellen Puntin. The 70th party was less than two months away, so this was the final meeting to tie up any loose ends. As we circled around tables filing our plates with diet busting goodies the usual conversations took place mainly centered around family, health and regularity issues. Anyway, there was a general feeling among the group that we were a bit burned out with planning reunion events. Most of us have been involved in multiple reunions and two birthday parties. We all left Goose Pond experiencing a bit of a “reunion hangover”, although the wine may have contributed to that!
Forward two months to the 70th birthday party. It was a beautiful Fall day and Bousquet’s was filled with a group of classmates wearing all forms of purple & white happy to once again reunite with old friends and rehash those tales from our youth. For many it was their first time attending an event since graduation. The feedback I got from several people was that this was as much fun as any reunion. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
The party seemed to rejuvenate the committee. In December we had an impromptu meeting disguised as a Christmas party for the few of us who are less fortunate and could not spend the winter in Florida. After consuming copious amounts of food and wine we agreed that planning a 55th reunion would not be a bad thing. So, there you have it. Nothing firm yet, but the date looks like it will be June 20, 2020 which just happens to fall on the 55th anniversary of our graduation, just like our 50th. The full committee will meet in the Spring once the snow birds return to roost. Keep checking back for future updates.
If you have moved, changed your email address or know of anyone who has never attended and have an address, please let Jeanne know. The missing list isn’t that long but there are some classmates who have never responded and it concerns us that we may have a wrong address and the mailings were not returned to Jeanne.

The Golden Dome Reunion was a complete success! What a wonderful weekend. Aside from a few sprinkles Saturday evening the weather cooperated and everyone had a fantastic time. From a fun Third Thursday on North Street and a beautiful evening at Bousquet’s, a Saturday night where 340 classmates and guests filled the Itam lodge and 100 came for brunch at Zucchini’s on Sunday morning. I want to thank all my fellow committee members who have worked for almost 3 years in planning and executing what is in my opinion the best reunion ever. I also want to thank everyone who attended, many for the first time, and helped make this such a memorable weekend.
I will be posting photos from the entire weekend as I get them. On Saturday night we had 2 professional photographers taking candid shots and group photos by the elementary school we attended. I will have those by the end of the week, so keep checking the site.
