New Trier East High School
Class Of 1973
"Our purpose is to commit minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion, and lives to the service of mankind"
Welcome to the New Trier East High School Class Of 1973* web site. We held our 40-Year Reunion on Saturday, October 12, 2013.
It was a smashing success!
Check out the Reunion Photo Galleries HERE!
". . . friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young."
- Baz Luhrman (as aptly quoted by Kim Rempert Hoberg)
The first instalment of candid photos from the Saturday Reception has been uploaded, and can be viewed HERE. Photos from the All-Star Jam can be viewed HERE. Need to hear a song of farewell, a hauntingly beautiful one sung in Swahili? Check out Anastasia's Song at the bottom of the Pursley Breakout Reunion Page, HERE.
If you have photos of the event email them to email@example.com and we will ensure that they are added to this site.
This site has been established as a permanent social-networking facilitator for the New Trier East Class of 1973 and friends. It is NOT going dark now that the 40-Year Reunion is past, or at any foreseeable time in the future. This site will be available indefinitely, as a resource to facilitate the organization of FUTURE events, including reunions. THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN TALK OF ORGANIZING A SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT A BUCOLIC SETTING IN WISCONSIN, AND PERHAPS A 45-YEAR REUNION (since this last one was so much fun). More on that shorty.

The NEW TRIER ALL-STAR JAM went forward on Friday October 11, 2013 and was, as expected, an unforgetable musical event. For details, click HERE. Beth Jonquil was just one of the All-Star performers!

Here is a very kind message received from Maura Donohue:
Not going to make it to the Reunion so I thought I would send a toast to the fun!
