Class Website

Our “whs1970.net” class website has been invaluable not only in planning reunions, but also it has enabled all of us to stay in touch with each other.One of our classmates not only created the website, but has maintained it throughout the years AND generously paid the annual dues to keep it operational.To offset these annual dues, The Committee would greatly appreciate any donation over and above the ticket price to keep our website up and running in the coming years. We thank you in advance for your generosity.

 

 

A special Thank You to Jack Keefe and Scott Shepherd for their guidance and contributions!!
