Class of '82 Readying For Mahwah High School Reunion

Members are working to locate all of their old classmates for a November gathering

The Mahwah High School Class of 1982 is planning its 30th reunion, and according to the reunion committee putting it together, the gathering is going to fill the class’s motto – “We like to party, this is true. We’re the Class of ’82.”

The reunion, which is looking to get together as many of the 168 graduates that year as possible, is happening at the Mahwah Bar and Grill on Nov. 23.

“We’ve been planning this for over a year,” Rob Tilton, a MHS ’82 grad who now lives in Tenafly and owns the Wireless World of Ramsey, said. “We are close to having 100 people confirmed that they’re attending.”

The reunion committee is now working to reach out to a handful of former classmates who they have not yet reached, and direct those who have responded to the reunion website to register for the event and pay to attend. The cost, of course, is $82 per person.

In addition to MB&G food and drink, the reunion will include a DJ, dance floor, open bar, shuttle service to area hotels and all-night hours – from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Check out the reunion’s website for a stroll down memory lane, and a look at Mahwah High in the 80’s.

“There were a lot of differences,” in the school between then and now, Tilton said. “It was like a college campus, we walked between all of those buildings,” he said. “And, the size of it was a big difference. It was so much smaller then, there were a lot more students.”

Tilton said he’s looking forward to reminiscing about his high school years with old classmates coming from far and wide.

“We’ve got people who still live in town, or nearby, and people coming from all over the place – Virginia, California, Florida, all over the US, and even Australia.”

Too bad it's the day after Thanksgiving. A lot of people are spending the holidays with their family and extended family members.

It's unfortunate that we cannot pick a date that works for everyone. After a brief survey was taken on Facebook of the immediate class, this date was chosen by majority. Summertime came in second however many had a conflict with vacation times. Since there no longer is an annual Turkey Bowl, we are hoping to have some mini-reunions for all Alumni that revolve around the annual Mahwah/Ramsey Football game. This year's game was held on September 28th but does fluctuate from year to year. www.mahwah82.com

Like any kind of party / etc., there is never a right time, place, date for everyone. We did give people more than ample amounts of time & tools to voice their opinion / concerns. At the end of the day, we went with the majority on all of our decisions. Date, venue, etc. were all decided by majority vote. Go to www.mahwah82.com register to come & pay for your bid....We'd love to see you...Be there or be square....Your Cousin's soggy stuffing will be there next year !! LOL...Just kidding of course !!

Thank you all for doing a great job organizing this. And I thought back in June what a long time you have and now look it is in a few weeks. Great job with keeping people informed.
