We Made It.
And much, much more
In a letter to all classmates in January 2013, the 50th Reunion Committee explained its desire for the Class of 1963 to give back something of real value and significance to our high school in recognition of the 50th anniversary of our graduation from NHS. We announced the “10K for 50” fundraiser, hoping that members of the class of 1963 would dig deep and help raise $10,000 as our Class of 1963 gift to be provided in some fashion to the students of Nashua High School (South).
Well, your response and generosity were overwhelming. Not only did we reach the $10,000 fundraising goal, we literally blew right by it, collecting just over $20,000. Congratulations to Everyone !!! And 'Thank You' to all classmates who contributed!!!
Later in the Spring of 2013, the Class of 1963 "Gift to NHS" subcommittee (Tom Osgood, Peter Chaloner and John Noraig) met with representatives of Nashua High School (South) including Lauren Byers (Director of Student Activites), Keith Richards (NHS South Principal), several members of PAWS (the Parent's group), and the Senior Class President and Secretary. To the last person, they said that far and away their top priority would be to re-create the Post Prom Party which they had been trying to do without success for several years. Their second priority would be scholarships and the third might be a combination of both.
The Reunion Committee met in May 2013 and unanimously voted to provide our support as the major sponsor for the resurrection of the Post Prom Party, starting with that year's Senior Prom on May 31, 2013; and to also provide two $1,000 Scholarships to two graduating seniors based on financial need starting with the Class of 2013.
On Sunday May 19th, 2013 the Nashua Telegraph ran the following article.
