Millburn Class Of 67 Gathers For 50-Year Reunion

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 school to celebrate their 50-year reunion.
The day-long activities began when Principal Bill Miron led a tour of today’s MHS facility, now vastly larger than it was half a century ago. A Millburn Deli lunch in the school cafeteria and a special 1966-67 exhibit at the Millburn Historical Society were highlights of the day. The event climaxed with a dinner dance at the Madison Hotel in Morristown featuring classic ‘60s music by “The Sorts,” headed Michael Salomone and Robert Kimmerle of the class of ’67.
For the class of ’67, it was the first formal gathering 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, earning a third consecutive group title, and a graduation ceremony that was abruptly ended, minutes after it began, by a thunderstorm that drenched students – who were denied the chance to flip their tassels -and their families and friends.
Planning for the semi-centennial reunion began more than a year in advance and was orchestrated by reunion chairs Janet Weiner Singer, Ralph Spielman and Lee Gordon, aided by 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.
