Welcome to the ETHS Class of 1970 Website Home Page

Special Announcement from Willie Wildkit, Assistant to the Webmaster: As of today, we have 399 members who have filled out their profiles on our webpage! Five of those have joined in the last two weeks! Can we make it to 400 before Thanksgiving? Check out the Missing Classmates link on the left, find someone you know and encourage them to join! And have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Our "50th Reunion" will be held the weekend of September 3rd, 2022. Hopefully, by then, things will be at a point where we can safely gather, following whatever guidelines the CDC and the State of Illinois require at that time.

The DoubleTree Hilton in Skokie has been incredibly flexible and helpful regarding our reunion plans. We are confident that we can make this happen! 

Your dedicated Reunion Committee has met regularly for three (3!) years to make sure we have a memorable reunion. We truly hope that in September, 2022, we can all gather and say, "Reunited, and it feels so good!"

The next Reunion Committee Meeting will be held on Zoom on Monday, January 17th, at 7:00pm CST. All classmates are welcome! Join us, if you can, or check back here for any news!

This is our official class website. It is the way that we communicate our plans to you, our classmates. There is information in other places on social media, but we update this site to reflect the most current  and accurate information.

Here are some ways you can get involved!  For more details, please use the tabs on the left.
