It is with great sadness that we report the death of Lawrence J. Hughes of Wakefield, who passed on May 4, 2017 as reported by the Boston Globe July 16th. May he, and all the rest of our classmates who have passed before us, rest in peace. Click here to visit our class Memorial List.
The 45th reunion is behind us. We had 123 classmates at the reunion. Plus a few teachers. We will be looking forward to the 50th next. Check out the photos and who attended the 45th.
We are still searching for classmates who have not updated their contact information. The intent is to make it possible to contact all classmates for the 50th reunion. If you haven’t updated your contact information (or are not sure), please fill out the new address update form for doing so.
Please check the Lost Classmate List to help us find people who we have tried to contact, but have been unable to either because the address / phone number we have is incorrect or because the classmate hasn’t replied to messages. If a classmate doesn’t reply to a message it is either because they don’t want to or we left a message at an incorrect number (we can’t tell which).
We hope that all our classmates have considered giving to the Class of 1965 scholarship program. Please visit the Scholarship Program Page for details on how to give to the program.
We are trying to identify which of our classmates served in the military (especially in Vietnam). Please contact us if you did.
Some classmates indicated they would like to contact their fellow classmates. Unless we have specific permission to release contact information (only to fellow LEHS65ers) we can not do so. Please visit the page for Communications between Classmates for details on who is on the list, how to give permission (and get on the list) and how to get the contact information of people on the list.
LEHS has had some changes since we left. The addition of the Paul F. Cavanagh Field House being one of the most visible. They also added a bronze statue of the LEHS Bulldog. Please visit the new Lynn English Today page to see the bronze bulldog and plaques. We will be adding more photos as time goes on.
We may have been kids but we fought in Vietnam. One of our classmates, Norman Grant, CPL – E4 Marine Corps, gave his all for our country. His tour of duty started on November 8, 1967 and was killed in action in Quang Nam, South Vietnam on August 23, 1968. He was 20 years old. He is buried in Pine Grove Cemetary in Lynn. See our memorial list.
How many of our classmates served our country in Vietnam? If you are one of our classmates who served in Nam, we would like to hear from you. Please comment below.
