NPHS 2011 Hall of Fame Dinner Set for Oct. 15 at Italian American Club

Heads up classmates. For those of you who don't know, there is an NPHS Hall of Fame...and of course a Hall of Fame dinner as well. The dinner is scheduled for Oct. 15 at the Italian American Club on Somerset Street. Yep...it's still standing and I'm sure some of us even went to dances there. Inductees at this year's dinner include Dr. Robert Champman (class of 67; medicine); Howard Polskin (that would be me in the journalism and business category); Ernie Jaeger (former English teacher and a wonderful one at that); Dick Williams (class of 62, government service; and Steve Smith (class of 88, government and politics). Former members of our class who have previously been inducted include Glenda Dove, music; Vince O'Neil, athletics; Gerry Burns, community service; Dr. Chuck Gomer, medical research; Richard Searl, athletics; Dr. Paul Auerbach, medicine; Virginia Rojas, education, Harry Brian Lewis, music; and Beverly Gaston Kochard, education. So here's the important part. If you're interested in attending, the price is only $30 a person! You get a meal, great acceptance speeches ghost-written by Jon Stewart and Bill Maher (apparently NPHS has a huge budget for these things), and a ton of 60s flashbacks. Contact Fred Sheeler (fsheeler@gmail.com). The festivities start at 6 p.m. You can pay at the door but it's best if Fred knows how many people are coming in advance so the caterer knows what to cook. See you there!
