08/03/2008 I would like to see some pictures up here soon. Robert daddyofaussam@sbcglobal.net California
08/03/2008 I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to search for your own class and see little written, and no pictures posted at this time. To explain the process on this web page: Each year a new set of classes is updated (in anticipation of their classes reunion)The years ending in "9" will be the next set, though the person who updates these years (me)has been unable to get that done early in the school year because of other duties. I appreciate your wish, and I encourage you or any other classmates to send in any material (pictures, memories, etc) that aren't in the yearbook, our main source of information. Thanks again for your input. I will try to redouble my efforts. CN
