 News Update - 12/16/02

Some of you may have noticed that the bulletin board section of this site has all those annoying pop-up ads again. There was such little usage of this section after the alumni banquet (none actually) and we struggled with the decision of whether or not to pay to upgrade it again to an ad-free service.

The good news is, we're going to take another shot at this. We just paid for another year's subscription to EZ-Board (our bulletin board service) so that the ads will be removed. You should see, or should I say you won't see any ads in about two days from the date of this news update.

I hope you'll all take the time to stop by this area and post a message for your classmates and friends. It's a great way to keep in touch with each other during the 5 year interlude between reunions.

Quick update to let you all know that a small Photo Gallery section has been added to the alumni site. You can click the Photo Gallery link on the right hand side of any page to navigate to it.

Well summer's flown by again! Seems like time passes a little faster the older you get doesn't it? 

We'd like to continue to encourage all of you to keep your address information current by contacting us with any changes you might have. With kids going back to college, there may be some email and or address changes that you'd like to have us make so your fellow graduates can keep in touch with you while you're off at school over the next year.

We'd also like to remind you that if you took any pictures at the alumni reunion this summer and have the ability to mail us a copy or email and electronic version, we'd be happy to post them on the site for all to see. We've received some response to this request but as of yet, we don't really have enough to put the photo gallery together. If you do send a photo, please be sure to tell us who the folks are that are pictured so we can give credit where credit is due!!

We had someone lined up to take pictures at the Banquet, but unfortunately, they backed out at the last minute. If any one had a digital camera, or could scan their regular pictures and send them to either Brett at or myself at we would really enjoy getting some put on the website.

We have our final “wrap things up” Alumni meeting coming up very soon and we would like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on any thing that you would like  see done differently next time, so that we can pass those along to the next committee. Please send your comments and or suggestions to me at and I will get them compiled for the committee to look at.  Thanks and I hope that everyone had a good time.

 News Update - 6/30/02

Some of you may have noticed some of the news articles were missing for a few days. Just a slight problem that I was able to correct thanks to Alan letting me take over his office while I was back home on vacation this past week.

We've received several updates since the alumni banquet and I'll be posting them shortly. Thanks for everyone's continued effort in keeping our records accurate.
