Welcome to the ETHS Class of 1970 Website Home Page


As you know, we have rescheduled our 50th Reunion until the weekend of September 9th -12th, 2021.  We are also renaming it, as well!  It is now the "50th+1 Reunion", the idea being that we are hoping you will reach out to at least one more classmate and ask them to join us!

We are still looking for people who are willing to coordinate grade school reunions.  We have several vounteers that are planning activities, and even ZOOM meetings leading up to the main event!  Let us know if you are willing to help set up something for your school and we can help get the word out.  Check the link on the left for more information.

We have several committees working on different aspects of the reunion.  We would love to have new people join us on our ZOOM meeting on January 14th at 7:00 pm, Evanston time.  You don't have to volunteer to chair a committee, (unless you want to!) but we would love to hear your ideas and feedback.  As much as we miss our in-person meetings (and the Hackney burgers!), having our meetings on ZOOM allows us to hear from people all over the country.  Call Steve Hoffenberg at (847) 727-1443 or email me at if you would be willing to participate.

Committee Updates

Of course we are all planning on having a great time at our reunion, but did you know that Kathy Kuttner Gayle, Grant Duers, and Christie Calm Albers have joined forces and are officially called "The FUN!! Committee"?  They have a lot of great ideas, and as Kathy pointed out, "Our 51st High School Reunion will be even better than the 50th!"

Roger Badesch is sporting a new hat in honor of our reunion, and the information on how to order one is on a link (on the left) called "Spiritwear".  On that page, we also included a link to the ETHS Boosters where you can order mens, womens, and kids clothing, as well as accessories. 

Joel Stevens also added a link (on the left) of a video of the ETHS Fight Song - 2020 StyleCareful!  It might just get stuck in your head!

Our next Reunion Committee Meeting will be a virtual meeting on Zoom, on Thursday, January 14th, at 7:00 pm CST.  Please consider joining us to hear more about our plans and add your ideas.  Call Steve Hoffenberg at (847) 727-1443 or email me at if you would like to participate.
