PLEASE CHECK THE ANNOUNCEMENTS AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE! 

This site will continue to be the best way for our class to stay in touch and to let you know about upcoming events, reunions, and news about our classmates.  We therefore urge you to join our website (see instructions below).  Your email address will remain private unless you reveal it on your profile and we promise not to bother you with too many announcements.  So please continue to update your profiles and upload photos.  This site will serve as our perpetual yearbook, Echoes and Vestiges combined, for a long time to come.
We really would like to continue reach out to ALL junior high school and New Trier High School classmates in our year.  Many classmates only attended junior high school in Glencoe, Kenilworth, Northfield, Wilmette, and Winnetka and did not attend New Trier.  Some went to private high schools or moved away.  They are always invited to our website and future events, too!

We need you to create your profile on the New Trier East/West Class of 1970 website.  In order to do so, click on the "Classmate Profiles" link at the top left.  Then scroll down until you find your name, click on it and follow the directions to complete your profile.  [If your name does not appear, please send an email to newtrier1970@gmail.com.]  You can include links to personal and business websites in your profile.  Please upload a photo to your profile, too!  There won't be a Memory Book created for this reunion, but rather this website will serve that purpose.  What's more, this website will live on beyond our reunion and you will always be able to update your profile and add photos.  It is recommended that you "lock" your profile in order to limit access to registered classmates only.

If you know of a classmate who is no longer with us, please click on the "In Memory" link on the left and then complete and submit the form.  Please note that on the form you must select the classmate's name from a dropdown list in order to add his/her name.  This list contains the names of ALL of our classmates, living and deceased, approximately 1,500 in all.  Do NOT assume someone is deceased because his/her name is on the dropdown list.  Please note that this information will not automatically be posted to the site's "In Memory" page. Your posting will be sent to the site administrator for final editing and verification.  If the classmate's name does not appear on the dropdown list, please send an email with the relevant information to newtrier1970@gmail.com.  Thank you.

NTE Classmate Cori Engelmann's New Book!

Cori Engelmann (now Cori Miller Schaff) has written "Art for All Ages, Reignite Your Artistic Self."  Wherever you are on the artistic scale this book will reconnect you to the creativity you were born with.  Especially designed to be multi-generational, with art activities that can be shared with young and old, children with parents and grandparents, couples, friends, as well as seniors.  A great gift for the holidays.  Check out this link to Cori's book. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/corischaff/art-for-all-ages-reignite-your-artistic-self?fbclid=IwAR0bbLvk48oGVi2o4GcxwjuvGcu-xIb2YnfVHEwyjQTab8USQeelR46HOx0

Our classmate Eadie Wetzel Davis was a swimmer on the US Olympic team in 1968.  Today she is suffering from ALS.  Please watch this video for more details.

Just want to thank the reunion committee for a wonderful reunion. Don't know how you managed to find a new site and pull it all off so beautifully. Thanks.

Dianne Sawyer Lipkin

A very special thank you to the entire organizing committee for all of your efforts and hard work, and to Stuart for the incredible website. Thanks to everyone who came. It was fabulous seeing so many people who were a part of my youth and special memories. For a few short hours, I felt like a teenager again, only more mature and appreciative for what I had then and have now. Thanks again for a magical evening. Looking forward to the next reunion! (Hey, how does 5 years sound???) Thanks again! Lisa Bobrow Friedberg
