New To The Site


If you are new to the website please read this page as it will answer all of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.

This website is maintained by the two Class Members. It is completely free to our classmatesYou will never be asked to pay to make a profile or to be able to access other alumni profiles.

You have the option of restricting your personal Profile to only fellow Classmates, which blocks the general public and search engines from accessing your Profile details.  Once you create a Profile, you will also be able to see all Profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them. 

All contact information that you enter into this website 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 the classmates unless you grant permission on your Profile. When someone clicks on your name, the only contact information they will see is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your Profile. Your email address is not visible, although an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your Profile page. Note, however, if you send a message to someone through their Profile page, the Classmate will see your email address so that they can respond.


If you have not already done so, you will need to create your individual Profile in order to access any password protected pages on this site.  Start by clicking on the Classmate Profiles link. This will take you to a page with all Classmate names, including yours. Find your name and click on it.  Click the link at the bottom of the page to join the site, and follow the prompts to create your Profile. The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password. You can personalize your page with information such as what have you been up to since graduation in 1968, school memories, your family, and photos.

If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. Note there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to your email inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

If you cannot find your name on the page, please contact us to have your name added. We welcome Classmates who went to school with us but did not graduate with us. 

If you change your email address, mailing address, or phone number, please update those in your Profile so we have your correct information at all times.

Always check back with our 
home page, where main information and announcements are made.

Most of all, enjoy and have fun with the website!


More Instructions

How to upload pictures to your web page:  

  1. Be sure you are logged in on the home page. In the links on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS, click on the link: Edit/Upload Photos.
  2. The Photo page will appear and you’ll see a gray box titled: Upload New photo. Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.
  3. The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploading your photos. There are 3 places on this page to make entries.
  4. Sort: The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page. By default your pictures will appear in the order you entered them, so this isn’t important for your first picture. But later if you want picture #5 to appear as #1, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures. If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures do not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4.)
    Caption: Caption is the description you write for your picture.
    Browse: This is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.
  5. Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.
  6. Now click the Browse button. A list of folders on your computer will show up. Locate the folder that holds your picture. For most classmates this will be the My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder. When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures. This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.
  7. Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.
  8. Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.
  9. Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.
  10. Click the SAVE CHANGES button.

Now go to your Profile page and look for your picture and caption.

Shortcut for multiple pictures: If you are uploading several pictures that are in different folders, you can copy them to your desktop, then delete them later. Make sure you COPY, not move, your pictures, so you won’t delete the original.

The easiest way to send me a message (an email) is to use the black tab entitled CONTACT US at the top of the web page. A large message box will come up with my email address already in place. You can type in anything you need:
1. New information on a classmate
2. Corrections on any part of the site
3. Questions about how to do something on the site (I don't have all the answers, obviously; but Class Creator does.
4. Suggestions for improving the site
5. Material, or photos, you wish considered for a particular part of the site
6. Survey, page, or forum topics

I thank you for your participation and hope you'll help me make this the best class site out there.

COPY and PASTE allows you to take printed material from one source and place it in another. In other words, should you find a particularly interesting article you wish to send to a colleague, you can "copy" the text and "paste" it into an email. Not all material on the Internet, however, can be copied; it will be easy to tell when this is the case.*

1. Place your cursor and the beginning of the text and hold down the left mouse button as you guide the cursor through the desired text. The writing will be highlighted will a background color, usually black or blue.
2. When you reach the end of the material you wish to copy, release the right mouse button.
3. Hold down the CONTROL key (Ctrl, lower left on the keyboard) and hit the key "c." The information will be magically transported to the unseen clipboard.

1. Place your cursor on the page where you wish your text to appear and hit the right mouse button once.
2. Hold down the CONTROL key and hit the key "v." The information will magically move from the unseen clipboard to your chosen page.

Many pictures can be copied in the same manner; but, please note, you can NOT use this method to transfer photos to our web site.

*If you find that the information you desire does not highlight in step 1 under To COPY, this means the material can not be transferred.

At this writing, there are 8 possible pages for the administrator to fill with content. All those in current use will be listed in the black, left-hand column of the Home Page. Survey topics, if there are any, come first; page topics come next; and Missing Classmates is usually last.

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."

In both the IN BOX and OUT BOX settings, clicking on sender's name brings up that person's profile page and clicking on the subject brings up the actual email.

Clicking inside the box on the far left or on the red "X" on the far right, will turn the background red. This means that the email can be deleted by choosing the tab at the bottom of the page that says DELETE CHECKED THREAD.
