Don't Miss Reunion!
Registration is now open for June 2–5 reunion at NMH! If your class year ends in a one or a six, don’t miss this chance to see how your school has evolved; enjoy classroom seminars, entertainment, a New England sunset dinner, the “pie ride,” and other athletic opportunities; get an update on NMH’s strategic plan; and have lots of time to reconnect with old friends.
