30th Reunion Survey!

We want to hear from you — take the 30th Reunion survey today!

Reunion 3.0 Is Go

Hello class of ’87!
As you may have heard, we are planning a 30th reunion party for the evening of Saturday June 3, 2017. This is the same day as the multi-class reunion at HCHS — https://www.hchsaa.org/reunion-landing — which takes place in the morning. We’re also planning a kid-friendly picnic for Sunday morning; more info on the picnic coming soon.
For details on the party, please see the Facebook group, check your email, or reach out to reunion@hchs87.org. Reservations & payment are due in May.

Reunion 3.0 is coming!

Save the date: June 3, 2017. More info TK!

Reunion Hangout!

If the Internet powers that be are smiling upon us, we’ll have live video chat from the reunion tonight! (If not, well, we won’t — but we will have a new Google+ page.)

To join the conversation, just visit our Google+ page around 7 pm ET tonight and look for the “Hangout” button. 

Take the Class of ’87 Survey!

Twenty-five years is a long time; even though many of us have been in touch more or less frequently since graduation (whether by traditional means or by Facebook), there’s a lot we don’t know about where we’ve been and what we’re up to now.

Please take a few minutes to fill out our alumni survey, with as much (or as little) detail as you like. Your contact information will be kept under wraps, and we’ll hold onto the full results until the reunion — unless there’s overwhelming demand to publish (securely and privately) sooner.

The survey link is here. Enjoy!

As requested by MAB, here are the non-routine questions (to allow further mulling time):

Your life since ’87, in as much detail as you choose

Where do you live now?

Married, life partnered, etc.?

Partner/Spouse’s name?

Kids, pets, ages

Profession, and some detail on what you do



Best memory of HCHS

Favorite HCHS teacher

Worst thing about HCHS

“Did you hear about…” another HCHS student? Dish!

What are you focused on right now?

What would you like to tell your classmates

Offers & requests for professional networking?

Reunion Dinner: June 2, 2012

From Reunion Committee Chair Gena Feist:

As you already know we have been planning a reunion party for the evening of Saturday June 2, 2012.

The party will be held at Crimson, a bar & restaurant at the corner of 21st & Broadway in Manhattan. The party will take place between 7pm and 10pm in a lovely private space fronting broadway with high ceilings, dance floor, copious seating, and bar.

We also have the private space (with cash bar) for an additional hour – 10pm until 11pm — after that we can stay but the public will also be allowed in.

Tickets are $65 per person and include open bar and a buffet dinner.

Because we have to pre-pay the restaurant with a guaranteed head count, the event is PRE-PURCHASE ONLY — THERE WILL BE NO TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR. We need to RECEIVE your checks by May 21, 2012.

Checks should be made out to the “HCHS Alumni Association” with “1987 Class Party” in the memo line.

Checks should be mailed to:

Gena Alexandra Feist, 350 w.24th st, Apt. 17H, NY NY
(please try to include the “Alexandra” as my dad lives across the street and it helps make sure nothing is mis-delivered). If you include your email address, we will confirm receipt and we will add you to an event mailing list. Please also let us know if you need kosher meal(s).

Finally, one last note, for anyone who would like to come to the event but for whom the $65 ticket price would be a problem: In addition to the generous alum donation that reduced the price for everyone by almost half, another alum has offered to cover the ticket price entirely for classmates that cannot otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to use one of these tickets, please email me directly.

If you are in touch with classmates, please forward this information to them.
