October 21, 2023 - Save the Date and Spread the Word

A Class of ‘65 gathering is now in the works for October 21.  The planners have reserved a room on the main floor at Hackney’s on Lake for an evening of fun, memories and deep fried onion rings.  We will meet at 6:00 PM for dinner in the room where we lunched at our 50th.  $30 per person via check or $32 per person via Paypal will buy your meal and a cash bar will be available.  

If you can join us, would you please send an email to the Class address ( and we will send you a short form to complete and return along with instructions regarding payment.  We will need a headcount at least month in advance.  

Payment can then be made via check ($30 per person) payable and mailed to “ETHS 1965 Class Reunion, 1000 Indian Rd., Glenview, IL 60025-3318" or $32 per person to our Paypal account “ETHS Class of 1965 Reunion.”

Finally, please help spread the word by mentioning this post to any Class of 65er who may have missed it.  We are all hoping for a good turnout!

Our upcoming ETHS ‘65 Reunion at Hackney’s on Lake  is fast approaching  - October 21 -  and it’s time to get a head count so that the planners can meet with the venue management and work on planning!  This means we will need to know who is actually going to attend.  All you need to do at this point is send us $30 per attendee and supply the names of the classmates and their guests.  Checks should be made payable and mailed to ETHS 1965 Class Reunion at 1000 Indian Road, Glenview, IL 60025-3318.  If you prefer, you can pay $32 per person to the Class Paypal account, “ETHS Class of 1965 Reunion.”  

Please remind your friend to sign up by check or Paypal as soon as possible.  The “must respond by” date is October 13.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

I learned on Aug 24 that brother Michael Francis Barnes passed away very recently. He was found in his boarding room after not picking up his mail for a few days.

He was born on May 26, 1946, and I'll mark his passing as August 23, 2023.

He is survived by daughter Barbara Barnes Brokaw, son Michael Barnes, sister Jenny Pack, brothers Chris and Jeff Barnes.

RIP brother Mike: you will be missed.

Obituary is at:

Correction to the Obituary: Mike was born in Chicago IL, spent early years in Skoie, Chicago and Evanston IL. Airforce service was 4/5/1966 to 5/24/1970.

Added note: Mike was very active in Evanston High School choir and musicals: YAMO (3 years), Kiss Me Kate, Carousel, and West Side Story. He also played the Boy in the Fantasticks at Pheasant Run playhouse in St. Charles IL. An avid swimmer, Mike was on the ETHS swim team and taught swimming with the Aquatics staff at ETHS.


Jeff Barnes

His remains laid to rest at Western New York National Cemetary.

We are aware that some of our '65 classmates and their spouses have been contacted by a man seeking information and purporting to be writing a book.  He uses a variety of false names and phone numbers.  Some who have received the calls have found them disturbing.  If you are contacted by this person, we suggest you hang up.  If you engage with him, he will likely persist.  If you feel threatened, contact your local law enforcement agency.

Our classmate, Sidney Caselberry, found this video of our last football game - 1964 Evanston vs. Oak Park. ENJOY!


ETHS Class 0f 1965 70th Birthday Party - 6/24/2017

As you know, thanks to our generous classmates, we have funds to create a '65 class gift, as well as hold some money in reserve for future class events. We agreed the best way to support the school is with an unrestricted gift for projects that are currently the ETHS Educational Foundation's top priorities, including the Gateway project and the Wind Turbine.

A few classmates jumped on the idea to have our gift recognized via a plaque at the location of the long gone, but much loved “Birdcage.”  But unfortunately, that’s not possible.  So we’ve decided to have our plaque on a bench at the Student Commons, close to the location of the old Birdcage. The plaque could read "The Class of '65 remembers the Birdcage--where memories were made."
Also, we will be dedicating a brick on the path nearby in memory of our friend Mike Heropoulos, thanks to an extremely generous donation from his family to our class.  Those interested in making similar memorials for classmates can read about them at ETHS Education Foundation.
Here's a video that will show you some of the past projects the Educational Fund has made possible.  Some of our donation will go towards completing the Wind Turbine project that’s mentioned in the video.
