We gratefully accept all donations toward the annual subscription cost for our website. This website is a great help to our reunion planners and all of you looking for classmates.

Welcome to the Plant City High Classes Of 1969 - 1972 web site.  These were the last 4 years of not only "The Planters", but also "The Marshall Dragons" as the two schools were merged into one in the 1969-1970 school year.  This site was created to help promote, celebrate and reconnect with classmates. Your participation is essential for it to succeed. We need your photos, updates, and memories to enhance the site. Your fellow classmates will enjoy hearing about you. Even if you didn't graduate,  haven't attended a reunion, nor kept in touch since high school, we ask that you please take the time to update your profile and maybe add a photo or two.  It is free to join,  password protected and only for our classmates viewing.  Take a moment to review the "missing classmates" list and pass along any contact info that you are aware of. Leave a note on a classmate's profile. Your additions will make this site fun, interesting and complete.  Keep up with what's new in Class Chatter and join the fun.
