Jericho High School
Class Of 1964


Hi - 

We hope you're all doing well!!!

Marilyn received the email below from Phil Bashe (JHS class of 1972) that we're including in its entirety so that people from our GREAT CLASS OF 1964 can avail themselves of the info. You might want to participate in  the "Senior Prom Reunion" that is being planned and attended by members of many different graduating classes.

Do we want to link up with this group? Or just opt to be on their mailing list? We can get some great ideas, that's for sure. Take a look and LET US KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS! (lots of info - read all the way down)

Hi, Marilyn. I'm guessing that you're related to Larry Della Vecchia? He's coming to the "Gathering of the Tribes III: Senior Prom Reunion" on June 6at the Homestead in Oyster Bay. "Officially," it's for the classes of '68 to '75 (I'm the class of '72), but any and all Jericho peeps are welcome. The class of '65, for instance, is basically having its fiftieth reunion as part of ours, and members of your class are certainly welcome to do the same. (Mark Modansky is coming with his wife Arian West Modansky from '65.)
Click here for your invitationwhich contains all info: directions, map, menu, list of places to stay for out-of-towners, and more. Also, Barbie and Ken (long since divorced) recount in excruciating detail what happened when they recently attended their Senior Prom Reunion in the accompanying graphic novella "Prom-ises! Prom-ises!"
I've added you to our mass email list of over 1,400 of us for regular reunion updates such as the one below from last week. Also, check out our website, at There you'll find thousands of photos and all twenty-eight issues to date of my alumni news magazine. I was good friends with Art Kaminsky from your class; we both were on the JHS Alumni Hall of Fame Committee. Great, great guy.
Anyway, check out the info, and if any of you '64ers are interested in joining us, let me know. (I'll also need to borrow a '64 yearbook for your class's photo-ID name tags.)

With the Jericho High School"Gathering of the Tribes III: Senior Prom" Reunion, a casual get-together for the JHS classes of 1968 to 1975 (and beyond—all Jericho peeps are welcome), just three months away, on Saturday, June 6, 2015, at 7:30 pm, at the Homestead in Oyster Bay, it's time for the moment of reckoning: an informal poll, in the form of a single-question multiple-choice quiz, to see who's in, who's out, and who's monkey in the middle
First, though:
Reunion News Updates
Ø We've arranged for discounted group rates at two nearby hotels: the Hilton Hampton Inn in Jericho and the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale. For details, go to pages 27 and 28 of the invitation.
Ø We have a whole weekend planned: 
v Friday night, June 5: the class of 1975 is having its private 40-year reunion at the Boardwalk Cafe at the Sunny Atlantic Beach Club in Atlantic Beach. For details, contact Lori Kroll LoSchiavo( or Mike Sammis (
v New! Saturday morning, June 6, 11:15 a.m.: It's on! Ms. Lois Smith will gladly give you a guided tour of Jericho High School at 11:00 a.m. Be sure to check out the new student helipad and teachers' Jacuzzi room! Meet in the front lobby by the doors to the auditorium.

v Sunday, June 7: an outdoor hangout/picnic on the grounds of Jericho High School. 
Now, people, it's test time. We've arranged your desks in perfect rows in the gymnasium, both to re-create the institutionalized-testing setting and, more to the point, to prepare you for your future as cubicle-dwelling worker drones. There is to be no talking, no gum chewing, and no setting the bleachers on fire. The only sound I want to hear is the scratch-scratch-scratch of your no. 2 pencil filling in the tiny boxes. Above all, there is to be no independent thinking. None. Violators will be forced to eat the perfectly shaped dome of instant mashed potatoes in the cafeteria at lunchtime.

Now: I'll read the instructions aloud while you read them silently to yourselves. Without talking. Silently.
Which letter reflects most accurately your reunion status as of today? A, B, C, or D?
A = Definite! (I will be there! And I promise to wear clothes this time.)
B = Probable! (I really hope to be there; still making arrangements, though, like getting someone to cover my paper route for that weekend.)
C = Possible but Unlikely! (Would like to attend, but my pet wombat has its Zumba class that evening, and, well, you know how insistent wombats can be ...)
D = Absolutely cannot or will not attend! (If you dosee me there, it's not me, it's my doppelganger, who's actually far better company than I am, so I encourage you to get to know him or her. As for me, I'll be in bed curled up in the fetal position by 8:00 p.m., smacking myself in the forehead for having missed all the fun and laffs.) 
Type A, B, C, or D in the "Subject" Line or at the top of this email and hit "Reply" and then "Send." (Not"Reply to All." Don't blow it.)
In two weeks, we will begin posting the ever-expanding RSVP list, to be updated weekly until the big weekend.
We understand that you're on the flighty side, and making bold decisions doesn't come naturally—even "Paper or plastic?" sends you into a tizzy. But let us know your status as of today, with the understanding that circumstances can always change.
Now ... begin. And no cheating.
Internally yours, 
Your Reunion Committee:
Philip Bashe ('72) • Paula Wood ('75) • Leslie Rothkopf Berkman ('74) • Larry Licht ('72) • Linda Caputo Friedmann ('72) • Dee D'Acerino Mason ('68) • Michelle Martin Gonzalez ('69) • Bill Brancati ('71) • Rick Baiman ('73)


The reunion may be over, but the glow remains!

Thank you to everyone who attended and making the trip, whether from a few miles away or after few hours on a plane. It wouldn't have been the same without you!

So many people have made the same comment: it's like we just saw each other yesterday. It is truly a testment to the high esteem in which we hold each other and the strength of our shared history. It is a unique and precious gift and the reunion now provides us with more wonderful memories.

How lucky are we????

Many spouses have attended our reunions and they also feel like members of the Class of '64. 

We are seriously talking about "Five and Alive in Vegas 2019" (thank you to the Ladies Cammeyer and Lerner for helping to come up with that theme)  Billy will finally get us to Vegas.

Our site remains "live" until June 25, 2014. After that date, we'll create a Facebook page to keep us all in touch.

A lot of people have posted fabulous pictures on Facebook, and they're jusgt so great.  I'll post more photos soon on this site as well.

Please Please Please Stay in Touch! 

And thank you all again for helping to make our 50th the truly amazing event it was!

With a lot of love,

Marilyn and Bonnie
