GET STARTED: Look to the upper left of the page and find "Classmate PROFILES." Click on it and find your name there. Click on your name and it will take you to a page that says "Join Here." Then "Click here now" and follow the instructions of adding your email and password so you can interact with your classmates. You don't have to finish it all at once. Come back whenever you want to add to or update your information, or add more photos. You can print out this page by choosing "File" from the top menu bar of your Internet connection. A "drop down" list will appear, and click on "Print" OR hold down the CONTROL key and click the letter key "p" and the print box will appear.

IMPORTANT: Please add (or allow) the following email address to your "Safe Senders" list so that your spam blocker will allow emails through from the classmates:

PRIVACY: All contact information you enter into your profile will be kept confidential. It will not be shared or distributed. Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by classmates unless you grant permission on your profile. When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your profile page. Your email address is not viewable, though an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so they can respond.

PASSWORD PROTECT: If you choose, you can Password Protect your personal profile to block the general public and search engines from accessing your web page. When you Password Protect, only logged in classmates can see your profile. Just click in the box at the bottom of your profile page when you are in edit mode.  Be sure to read what each of the three boxes provide at the bottom of your Profile Page.  You are in complete control of what others can and cannot see.  PLEASE do not delete or leave blank your address, e-mail address or phone number or you will never hear what is happening regarding Reunion notices or other important information.  PLEASE KEEP YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS CURRENT AT ALL TIMES.

FORGOTTEN PASSWORD: If you forget your password, click on the "Forgot Password?" retrieval feature under the login feature, and it will be automatically emailed to you. 

REMEMBER ME: If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. (Don't log out - just close the window.) You can log in from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

We have lots of fun things planned in the next several years as this site is expected to be operational past the upcoming 50th Reunion.  Perhaps after 2011 some classmates will want to organize mini-reunions in one part of the country, or they want to put together an RV rally or a cruise.  The sky is the limit and this is the place to make it all happen.  Remember practically anything you want/need will provided for FREE and that includes any technical help as well (as long as John Christman is the Site Administrator).

COPY and PASTE allow you to take printed material from one source and place it in another. In other words, if you find a particularly interesting paragraph or article you wish to send to a classmate, you can "copy" the text and "paste" it into an email.


  1. Place your cursor at the beginning of the text and hold down the left mouse button as you guide the cursor over the desired text. The text will be highlighted with a background color, usually blue. (If you find that the information you desire to copy does not highlight, this means the material can not be copied.)

  3. Hold down the CONTROL key and press the key "V." The information will move from the unseen clipboard to your message.


  1. Place your cursor on the page where you wish your text to appear and click the right mouse button once.

Each listed email shows: (1). A box to check, (2). Its status; (3). Either who sent it to you (IN BOX) or who you sent it to (OUT BOX), (4). Subject and date of email, and (5). A red "X."
