A Gentle Reminder

Just a month is left until the Moline HS Class of 65 holds its 50th reunion, and only two weeks are left until reservations need to be turned in.  So you still have time to make plans to meet and reconnect with your classmates while enjoying good music and food.  You'll find all the details, including registration and booklet forms, here in the menu at the left. You'll also find a list of those already signed up to be at one or more events. Please complete and submit the forms by September 10.

MHS Class of '65 Reunion just keeps getting better....

Our informal gathering on Friday evening at the Moline Viking Club just added another twinkling star. Some of our classmates have vintage vehicles from “our” 1950s-60s era, and they may be bringing them as focal points for us to enjoy as we enter the Viking Club.

If you have such a car, pick-up, mototcycle or camper and wish to bring it for display, please contact Jerry Miller at (563) 508-9834, who volunteered to coordinate the display.

Brett Lohmann

The first winner of MHS Class of 65 legacy project scholarship is Brett Lohmann. He will be attending the University of Wisconsin, Platteville, and is planning on a Mechanical Engineering major.

"Big" News from the MHS 65 Tradition Group

Jerry Miller of Big River Brass Band

While the 1st Wednesday of the month MHS ‘65 gatherings for food, beverage & fellowship are not huge (yet!) when measured in numbers of folks attending--there are other bonuses. One, finding out that that our classmates have some really cool hobbies, skills and interests. One example would be Jerry Miller, who’s not only a Deere retiree; but most impressive is that he’s soooooo into playing music with brass horns (and yes, he did that while at MHS) that he’s part of several musical groups in and around the Quad Cities.
But he didn’t stop there—in 2005 he formed the Big River Brass Band that now has 40-some highly skilled musicians doing something they all love—making music. Over conversation, Jerry offered that “his” band would be willing to play a mini concert for all of us Maroon faithful sometime over our 50th reunion weekend—woo-hoo. 
It’s now set, the Big River Brass Band will entertain us early on Saturday evening for an outdoors courtyard mini concert near the Stoney Creek Inn. Jerry has also invited any and all MHS classmates who may be interested in jamming with the band to give him a call at (563) 210-3393. Jerry’s wife Phyllis, who’s also a highly skilled musician, may answer the call.

MHS '65 Scholarship $$ Available to MHS '15 ers

Think back exactly 50 years. What were you up to? Graduation from MHS was imminent...what was beyond? Just then the Mississippi River decided to rise up, show her muscle and many MHS students contributed to the effort to keep our town—especially the water treatment plant—safe and dry. Nonetheless, 50 years ago many MHS '65 ers were thinking-planning college.

Do you have a grandchild or know of someone who will be graduating from MHS in a few short months? Could he or she use a boost for their education? The MHS 65 Legacy Scholarship Committee voted to extend one $1,000 scholarship to a 2015 graduate.

Interested students should visit or call Linda Daily (309) 764-4193 for complete information.  Deadline for applications is March 15th.

The scholarship committee also agreed and set a fundraising goal of $65,000 to be reached by the end of 2015. Contributions can be mailed to: Moline Foundation, 817-11th Ave., Moline, IL 61265, earmarked for MHS '65.
