Forest Hill class of '70 readies for reunion

[attach]2203[/attach]Forty years in four hours.

That’s a whole lot of reminiscing to pack into a short time, but that’s the plan for a class reunion taking place at Forest Hill CI this fall.

Former classmates living in California, Vancouver and Ottawa are flying in for the party.

The reunion will be a great opportunity to celebrate the baby boomers of ’70 — youth who came of age together during an interesting time, says co-organizer Barbara Laskin, a former broadcast journalist living in New York.

“I think we were deeply affected by politics,” she said, citing the Vietnam war and the Kent State shootings as impactful events in her peers’ lives at the time.

Co-organizer Ron Kaufman, now a Superior Court judge, said many former classmates have kept in touch over the years, but he’s looking forward to reconnecting with old friends.

“Some of us will at the reunion see each other for the first time in 40 years,” he said.

The reunion committee is asking anyone who graduated in ’70 to register for the Oct. 17 event, being held at the high school.

Organizers are promising lots of laughs, lots of memories, and some funny photos too.

For those alumni sitting on the fence, here’s another reason to attend: There’s going to be a draw for dinner and show at Yuk Yuk’s, courtesy Mark Breslin, founder of the comedy club franchise and class of ’70 alumnus.
