Dear Classreport users: We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users: Bravos. We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support. If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you.

70th Birthday Bash Album 1

Our 55 year reunion planning is underway. October 2016.

This site is operated and funded by members of our class.
Class Administrator: Marianne Usko Brown

Event Announcement!

70th Birthday Bash pictures are viewable...!

Hi All:

The slide show program wouldn't let me place all pictures into one album, therefore I had to split them into two presentations; Album 1 above and Album 2 below.

Click anywhere within the picture frame or text. Once in, click on "Slideshow" to advance pictures after 4 second delay. You can change the speed by clicking the down arrow and selecting the speed you want.

To get back to our website home page, click the "back arrow" several times until you're in.

Regards, Marianne

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
James Dimond


Went from graduation night to Navy boot camp. Served in Viet Nam theatre as an Aviation Metalsmith. Our son was born about a month before I got out of the Navy. Joined Phoenix Police department Jan. 1965, retired from there Jan. 1985. Went to work for American Family Insurance as a fraud and fire investigator. Left in 1999 due to non-Hodgkins lymphoma cancer. Am now cancer free 12 years. Have had 2 heart attacks but in good shape now. We have 5 grandkids, the oldest (19) and the youngest (9) live here in Phoenix, the middle three live in Spokane, WA. (16,14,10). Still playing with cars, have done many full restorations and a few built from the ground up. Have owned, bought, sold, built or restored approximately 250 cars over the years. Mostly Fords ( we have a '66 Mustang GT Convertible and a '66 Sunbeam Alpine hotrod now), probably my last cars. I'm just too old and creaky to keep getting up off the garage floor to fetch a tool or a part. Rita and I just celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary and wish it could be 48 more. Graduated Phoenix College 1970 with AA in Police Science and Administration. Graduated Northern Arizona University with BS degree in Police Science and Administration 1980. On the Dean's list and graduated cum laude from both schools. After barely making it out of WHS, who'da thunk??

Washington High changed my life forever. I met my soulmate, my confidante, and the love of my life there. Corny as in may sound, when I kissed her in the back seat of my friend George's car (It was a double date, our first one) my life changed. After dropping her off at her front door, when I got back into the car, I told George "Someday I'm going to marry that girl". And I did June 15th, 1963.
We both knew, from that first kiss, that we were meant for each other. We were 15 years old at the time, but we just knew. I owe everything I am to her. Forever is not long enough to love her, but that's the best I can do for now. Thanks to WHS for the best thing that ever happened to me.

"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes." 5/22/2014
