Welcome to the Garinger High Class Of 1961 web site. This was to be primarily a vehicle to spread the word about our 50th reunion in 2011 but we hope you will also use this site to reconnect with old friends and celebrate old memories. Please feel free to enter profile info on yourself for friends to browse.


I just wanted to make all our classmates aware the we have a published author among us. Worth M. Helms has  written and published a book titled "A Foundation for Life - A Grandfathers Wisdom." It is available on and he describes it as a pretty good menu of the things your'd like to teach your grandkids.

 Congratulations Worth!

Our classmate Lucy England Whyte loss her husband Terry about 2 weeks ago. Please pray for her and her family during this difficult time.
