Q: Why are the past reunions still listed?
A: When new
alums join the association, they
can see if their class has had a reunion.
This page is for any reunions that have already been planned and also for people who would like to post comments and/or questions about the possibility of a reunion for their own class.

Beach Channel High School ReunionHi! Someone told me about your site, and I really applaud your efforts to keep the spirit of Rockaway alive! I am currently working on the 25th reunion for the first graduating class from Beach Channel High School. We have about 200 people we cannot locate. It they had older siblings, they would have gone to Far Rockaway High School. I am wondering if we can post a message on your site asking anyone who knows anyone that was a member of my class to have them get in touch with me, if they have not already been contacted.
I know this is a lot to ask, as you are already doing so much. Any help you can give would be so greatly appreciated.

Rockaway/Rosedale ReunionAlthough I am a grad from Andrew Jackson High, I am looking for our friends and neighbors who attended Far Rock from ROSEDALE during the 60s. We will be having our annual reunion...The Rosedale Roundup...and would like to have more of our group attend. We have also set up a site in our neighborhood and would like to have them come visit there to renew old friendships. Please email me and see if your childhood neighbors from PS 138, SCS, etc., have been located.
This is a great web site you guys have here!

September 10, 2000 "Beach Brunch" Report
Sunday, Sept. 10th was a wonderful reunion - made up of grads, spouses and one daughter. It was a beautiful, sunny day and after the brunch at The Beach Club (on Beach 116th Street) a few of us even sat on the beach - a perfect Rockaway ending. Many thanks to Elisa Hinken for handling the restaurant arrangements and to Ash (Sandy Kirschner) Mills for her Beach 122nd Street hospitality.
While most of us were 1970 grads, we had a few in attendance from other classes, as follows:1. Marc Aaronson, '70It was so nice to get together and see familiar faces - and to think that this was put together on a whim just a few weeks ago. Shows you what a great group of people came out of FRHS (and Lawrence).
2. Elisa (Bachrow) Hinken, LHS '76 grad, but a Far Rocker at heart!
3. Al Hinken
4. Hannah Hinken (Elisa & Al's adorable daughter)

Let's see if we can help Paul out!Paul Goldman This is from Paul Goldman ('57):
I am a graduate of the class of '57. I want to thank you for keeping up the web site as well as the newsletter. While at Far Rockaway I had a small band (Quartet) called "The Gaynotes". I have been trying to find out what happened to the other band members who graduated in '58. They were Louis Meisel and Arty Leibowitz, both of Belle Harbor and Gerry Curtis of Wavecrest. If any of your guestbook members have any information on their whereabouts I would sincerely appreciate it. Pertinent information on myself:
89 Hillside Road
Chester, NJ 07930
Received 8/17/01, Paul's quest was successful, finally!
Have finally found the members of "The Gaynotes" band and had a reunion.
