Let's move and renew the sandbagging plaque!



If you'd like to join in helping support the renewal and relocation of the plaque shown above to a location by the new bridge, please complete your GoFundMe donation form by August 1. The city is paying for some of the project but we are being asked for help. Officials expect the display to be in place by September 2022. There will be some photo ops at times to be announced when it's finished.  

Donations can be made at the GoFundMe site here

Update:  Jim Egge, MHS '67, recently notified us that the plaque will be renewed and moved to a new, more appropriate location near the new bridge. There will be a dedication ceremony with photo ops. Check back here for more information when it's available.

Scholarship News

Generous classmates who have enabled our MHS 65 Scholarships recently voted to significantly increase the scholarships' meaningfulness to recipients – increasing each award to $5,000! This change will likely exhaust the scholarship fund in ten years, having helped nearly 30 students.

To date we’ve raised more than $100,000, clearly a worthy project in paying it forward for the Class of 65!

Best wishes to all in your own charitable activities,

Our Foreign Exchange Student -- Nazek Fahmy Habib

It's been far too long (50+ years) since we've heard much from our class exchange student, Nazek Fahmy, but Mary Parsons Caisley, her Moline host, recently met up with her in Alexandria, Egypt. It looks like a joyous reunion.  And we've been given the okay to post these pictures of them now.  Hopefully we can get a little more information later.

More photos. . . 

If you'd like to post photos, just let us know or just add to the albums already available under the section called Photos: Then and Now.  Two more albums were added recently for the 30th and 35th reunions.  Please feel free to include your photos in them.  You never know when they might put a smile on someone's face.
