Welcome to the web site for the

Moline High School Class of 1965

First chance in 2022 to pull up a chair with us

HAFNERS — A Moline institution is open with a small change requiring a mask to enter but not while seated at tables. But the food is excellent and the fellowship even better--especially at lunchtime when members of the MHS class of '65 will gather.

All are welcome--join in on Wednesday, January 5th at 11:30 ish this month and every first Wednesday of the month in the future.

* * * * * *

You can mark your calendar for our 75th birthday party!

 

 

🎈Plan to join your “old” classmates and make quality new friends September 16-17, 2022, at CityView in Moline. Both Friday's Casual Night and Saturday's Dinner Night will be at CityView. 

More details and registration info will follow, so check back here when it’s available.

* * * * * * 

These times make small get togethers more important than ever.

Whether in the north, south, east, or west, getting together with Moline classmates can be both fun and  enjoyable. And even if you're not a camera person, send us just a picture or two of your get together to inspire others to do the same this winter. Tell us where and who was there. Then check back here to learn who is out and about this winter. 

In Sarasota, Cyd Hillyer Humphreys (not in picture), Cheryl Anderson Lehew, Dee Karstens, Jeff Johnson, and Steph Sundine met for lunch. Jeff even treated all to appetizers.     

In Ft. Myers, Steph Sundine, Linda Swanson Nygaard, Deanna Rohrbach Rossow, and Pam Peterson Verhille enjoyed chatting in a lovely waterside setting. 

In Punta Gorda, Chris Eveland VanLerberghe was visited by Cheryl Anderson Lehew and Marie Flatley. Later Larry VanLerberghe took them all for lunch at LeRoy's BBQ.

Introducing our TWO scholarship winners for 2021
 

To the Class of '65,

Hi my name is Taylor Bohannon, and I'm honored to be receiving this scholarship! I am attending Drake University to study Pre-Occupational Therapy, and be a member of the Drake Dance Team. I will obtain my doctorate degree in the 3+3 program at Drake and plan to specialize in pediatrics and open my own private practice. This scholarship will help me to reach my goals and aspirations in order to make my mark on society. 

I cannot thank you enough for helping me succeed in my future endeavors. 

Hello, my name is Camryn McBride.  During high school, I was on the Girls Bowling Team, participated in Symphonic and Chamber Orchestras, and in the Quad City Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.  This fall, I will be attending the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. I am planning to work towards a bachelors in Wildlife Ecology.

I am very grateful and honoured to be granted this scholarship. Thank you Class of ‘65 for investing in my future!

Meet John Melton, Our Scholarship Winner for 2020

I’m honored to be receiving the scholarship because it means you believe in me and are willing to help further my education. I will be attending Augustana College in the fall and plan to become a mechanical engineer.

During this pandemic it’s hard to not think about what other people could be doing differently, but you can’t control others actions. It’s just best to make sure you’re doing your part and find ways to occupy yourself. If you can somehow incorporate helping others into that even better. 

I am particularly grateful for the assistance that will make the transition to college easier.

--John Melton

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.
