MILLBURN, NJ - More than 100 members of the Millburn High Class of 1967 made a long-awaited class trip back in time on April 29, returning to MHS to celebrate their 50 –year reunion. The day-long activities began with a Principal Bill Miron led tour of today’s MHS facility that is now vastly larger than half a century ago. The group dined on a Millburn Deli lunch in the school cafeteria and enjoyed a special 1966-67 exhibit at the Millburn Historical Society. The reunion climaxed with a dinner-dance at the Madison Hotel in Morristown featuring classic 60’s music by “The Sorts” headed by MHS ‘67ers Michael Salomone and Robert Kimmerle.
This was the first formal gathering of the class of '67 since a 31-year reunion in 1998. Classmates recalled a rousing appearance by humorist Jean Shepard, the first undefeated Miller football team in 45 seasons along with a third consecutive Group title and the graduation ceremony that was abruptly ended, minutes after it began. A thunderstorm drenched students—who were denied the chance to flip their tassels—along with assembled families and friends.
Planning for the semi-centennial reunion began more than a year in advance by reunion chairs Janet Weiner Singer, Ralph Spielman and Lee Gordon along with more than a dozen classmates. Attendees received an updated Millwheel yearbook, renewed friendships and left with memories of a spectacular night they are not soon to forget.
