Some pages are going to be password protected and cannot be viewed by anyone on the outside. You will need to join the site to have access to REUNION information, most classmate profiles, e-mails, and our "Message Forum" (comments from everyone). So please join and be a part of this fun.

To create your Classmate Profiles in the menu and click on your name to begin, follow the prompts and you will be on your way to creating your profile.

All information is private and confidential and will not be shared with anyone and cannot be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your Profile. When someone clicks on your name, the contact information they will see is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put in 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 receiver will see your email address and can respond.

Lock your Profile...We recommend you enable "Profile Visibility" on your classmate profile to keep your information from being viewed by outsiders. "Locking" your profile will ensure that only classmates who are “logged on” can view your information. To find out whether or not your Profile is private, view "Classmate Profiles" BEFORE you log in. If there is a padlock icon next to your name your profile is LOCKED. To change this setting, log in, click Edit Profile, scroll to the bottom and check the box next to "Profile Visibility", then scroll down and click SAVE CHANGES.

Help finding missing classmates...Please take a look at the "Missing Classmates" tab on the home page and let us know if you have an email address for any of those classmates. If you don't have an email address, but have a physical address or phone number, please enter that information in the "Contact Us" link on the home page.

Return here for reunion updates, contact classmates & update your profile...When you create your profile, you will also create a password which allows you to update your profile, view other profiles and mail classmates.

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.
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.
4.    Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.
5.    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.
6.    Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.
7.    Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in theUpload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.
8.    Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.
9.    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.
