Hopkins Grammar School
The Class of 1965
|Our 35th reunion was a pretty
grand success! Here's a bit of an archive with text from
Hutch and photos from Romero, Schulz and Mordes. We'll
try to make it prettier over the summer.
There were 24 of us on Friday or Saturday or both. That was nearly half the surviving class--God bless us one and all. And a lot of people who would have liked to attend but couldn't for various reasons checked in and updated us.
Have a look at what we did and at some folks unseen for 35 years. And think about coming to #40--we haven't all that many chances left!

|Reunion activities started early morning Friday May 12th at the Yale Golf Course. Tommy Burkhard - in from San Diego via Washington D.C. - and Herb Stocking in from Salem, MA, joined local attorney Bill Sarris and Spinnaker Financials Jimmy Waterman. Tommy took honors with a 74 [Navy life is tough on the golf game] while Bill tail-ended with a 92. Bills score was superb, given his new hip and the fact he has only been playing golf [5 tennis letters] for a year. Disappointing was Herbs 85 our old tennis Captain, who once scorched the Yale course with low 70s back in the 60s.|
|Somewhere in the mix we learned that another Bill
Kneisel has agreed to take the reigns of
the Hopkins Trustees, as President, for the next four
years. Bill had a medical emergency in the family that he
had to attend to and was unable to attend the Reunion.
But, hell be easy for us to find before the next
Reunion. Hell be on The Hill anytime
youre in town.
Around 5:30 that Friday, the golfers met up with the rest of the cast [class] at Tycoons for drinks, dinner and great talk.
In the backdrop Eddie Malone [HGS 41 who went to school with Delaneys dad at Hillhouse] acted as host and Debbie Schulz [Bobs sister ] cooked our dinners, making it a more special night.
|Things jumped into gear quickly when Mark Esposito snipped off Bob Joses tie. Most of us were shocked, but ties were definitely taboo and Mark was not without accomplices [aka Delaney, Romero, et al].|
|Jose, Waterman, and Esposito. For many of us, it was our first chance to see Mark in 35 years.|
|Waterman, Hutch, and Stocking|
|Dick Hentz and Steve Scully, 35 years on.|
|Bob Seldon flew in again from California and is seen here with Bill Sarris.|
|Randy [LimitTrader, 230 Park,NYC] and Lisa Burwell drove in from Port Washington, NY. Both from the investment banking world, they are more than avid sailors who have campaigned racing sailboats [ the Tripp, Breakaway]. Randy also told of some of his exploits in commanding Rangers in Vietman; a sharp contrast to some of us draft dodgers.|
|Dick Hentz and Herb Stocking, 35 years on.|
|There were some very special surprises.
were back for the first time since they left Hopkins after their third form years. Back in 1962, Greg headed for California and Steve went the boarding school route.
Steve is with Dick Hentz, back with us for the first time in 35 years.
|A few hearty souls were up early on Saturday morning
[9:00 am] May 13th to run the cross-country course.
John Mordes joined Gordie Clark and Roger Poor for this early morning event. The images are pre and post race.
|During the day Saturday, which was New England
overcast and cool, John Cherniavsky and his wife Maria
[and son and mother-in-law] toured the campus along with
Jeff Alderman [and his nephew], Alan Milstone , Bob
Seldon and Hutch. Great debates raged over conservation,
politics and the mysteries of Alan Sherks regime.
Most, along with John Mordes joined the presentation by
the Special Alum, a neurologist from California.

|Cocktails were served at 6 and dancing commenced at 8. Karl Crawford was our host for the night, while Dr. Heath and Ib Jorgenson and Ken Paul Sr./Jr., added that old time flavor. While the noise was a little much for we geezers, we are already planning a better 2005 where well spend Saturday night at one of our homes, with a great barbeque.||
