Needham High School
Class Of 1963

NHS Class of 1963 - Looking forward to a better 2021!

2020 has certainly been a stressful year - particularly for those of us in a very mature age bracket! Hopefully, you and your families have remained healthy.  Sadly, we have lost several of our classmates this year as you can see in the In Memory section on this website. Needham has been spared too many COVID cases, but the town is still impacted in many ways.  Lots of smaller stores and restaurants have closed down. Fortunately, Harvey's Hardware and Roche Bros. are still going strong. At Needham High School the students are divided into blue and gold groups - they attend in person classes one week and the next week online only.  No Needham vs Wellesley football game this year.

We will survive all this if we can just persevere until Spring!

The photos from the 55th Reunion are posted on this website. Also posted is the slideshow of pictures from previous Class of ‘63 reunions ( the hairstyles and clothes from the 70’s & 80’s are very funny!). You must be signed into our website to view these photos.

We aren’t promising a 60th Reunion at this point, but if the spirits and bodies are willing, we might give it another go in 2023.  In the meantime, we encourage all classmates to stay connected to our website. It will continue to be the main source of classmate information.

We wish all of you good health and happiness over the days and years to come.  In conclusion, we offer up this quote by Farrah Stockman, Boston Globe 2012:

”Your hometown is like your family. You didn’t choose it, yet it shapes you indelibly. Most people spend their lives either living up to their hometown expectations or defying them.  Even if you left and never looked back - never attended a single reunion - the place you grew up is still embedded in the master code of who you are.”
