Important Site & Contact Information
The section marked Site Information will contain most of the changes on the site made by the Administrator.
Be sure to look at the Class News and Class Message Board for changes, also.
It has come to my attention that some of you do not have Adobe Reader installed on your computers. This is a free program designed to allow the reading of Portable Document Files (PDF). As this is the best way for me to attach files to your Email for you to read, you will need this program.
To download and install Adobe Reader click the button below that is associated with your computer.
For Windows users, if you do not want the Google bar on your Browser, remove the check in the Free Google Toolbar box.
This site will always be under construction! Check back often for Up-dates and Class Reunion information.
On this site, you have many things that you can post directly into. You can post just anything on your profile. The exceptions are listed below for first what you can do. In the right column there are 3 things that you can post to if you have logged on, Recent Reviews, Recommended Recipes and Prayer Requests. In the left column there is Our Class Message Board. I recommend that you type the message you want to post into a word processor first and then after you have spell checked it, The copy it to the clipboard and paste it into the location you have selected. This is true of the profile also. On the profile, you can answer all the questions listed but remember that these postings will be shown to the public at large. You have to have the administrator or assistant post the Yearbook and Now picture on the Profile. On the Home Page the administrator must do the posting to The Calendar, Family News Summary, Reunion Announcement area and Featured Links. If you have a movie, slide show or an album of pictures that you would like to show, your can post those on your Profile page. If it is worthy of the Home Page, contact the Administrator and the information can be moved from your site to the Home Page. I also have the ability to make links to some profiles from the Home Page. For help or assistance, make selection below.
For help or assistance, click on one of the selections below.
Just to the right are some links to various Class Sites. Please check out these sites by clicking on the link name. There are sections that you

You can post entries there also.
I would like to thank the 49 who have registered.
Instructions to post Pictures, Slideshows and Videos on your Profile.
Placing pictures or even a slideshow of your pictures is something that you can do on your Profile.
For pictures, you will want to make a photo album and use the services of photobucket.com or the other providers of these types of services. I believe that photobucket is what Karen uses and if you have any problems, she could direct you in using this service.
For Slides, you need to go through slide.com or slideshow.com for the making of a slideshow. They are download sites that will make the slideshow for you. You download the pictures, order them the way you want them to be shown and you can even select background music.
Once this is done, they provide the HTML coding to be placed on the profile. I would open a text editor like Notepad to save the HTML coding there first as you do not want to loose this. It is the access to those pictures. Then post the code to the Profile in the Slideshow section provided.
I use Windows Movie Maker and download what I made to youtube.com where they make the video and store it for you. They, also, give you the HTML code that you insert into your profile page.
If you are planning on taking on this type of project and feel uneasy in doing such, select the green Assistance button in the blue box above and drop me a line.
Many of these missing attended with class members that went on to graduate. They did not finish their High School Experience in at Ashland High School through no fault of their own. During their attendacnce at AHS, they made friends with others of our class and now have been lost to time.
Our Class Message Board
Your participation is requested!
We would like to hear from you. Post your messages here.
My family moved from Ashland to Cottage Grove, OR in 1958 and I attended the University of Oregon, graduating in 1962 with a B.S. in Health and Physical Education. I entered the US Army in 1962 with a commission as an Infantry 2d LT. My assignments included 6 years in, Germany, 2 years in Vietnam; and the rest in the US, mostly in the East and Southeast. I retired in 1988 and returned to the Unviersity of Oregon in 1989 to complete courses required for teacher certification. I've been working as a substitute teacher since 1990 and plan to continue as long as I'm able. I work about a dozen days a month from September to June each year.
I enjoy playing golf, gardening, canning and am involved with the West Coast Airborne Association as the Secretary/Treasurer. WCAA is a small non-profit organization of ex-paratroopers, glidermen, air assualt and troop carrier/helicopter crew members. We have about 80 members who reside in Oregon, Washington and Northern Califirnia. A few of us get together each Friday at 4:00 PM at the Eugene Vet's Club on Willamette Street. Anyone in the area is welcome to join us.
