On this site, you have many things that you can post directly into. You can post just about 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.
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
can post in just below the Featured Links. Please feel free to use them. Do not forget about the Class Message Board and the Family News Summary sections.
You can post entries there also.
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.
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.

I was drafted into the Army in 1968 and served 14 months in Viet Nam as an Infantryman with the 9th Infantry Division. I got out after 2 years and spent the next 2.5 years getting married to Susan Hargrove (class of '67). It didn't work out and we were divorced after only a year. I married a woman I met in LA when working there. We moved to Ashland in 1971 but work was scarce that winter so we moved back to California (Watsonville). Eventually I joined the Air Force and was stationed at Travis from 1973-78. Went to Japan from there and was stationed at Yokota Air Base till 1981 when I volunteered to be reassigned to Clark AB, Philippines. My American wife had some problems being stationed at Clark and then I was sent to work at the Pentagon from 1984-87. We had 2 boys, one in 1972 and one in 1973. The youngest was born at Travis AFB, CA. We started having problems at Travis and they only got worse in Japan and even worse at Clark. I just could not be faithful and Clark was one hell of a place for me to be stationed. I was very bad. We moved to Virginia when I was at the Pentagon and finally agreed to separate after I received orders back to Clark. She refused to go with me. I met a very nice (13 yrs younger) woman while stationed alone and was living with her when Mt Pinatubo erupted. I was evacuated in Jun 1991 and had to send for my girlfriend when I got to the US. I was stationed at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas.
She arrived in May 1992 and we were married 4 days later. I retired from the Air Force in 1994 and continued to work at various jobs such as warehousing, shipping, airport shuttle driver, and last job was a what was called a convention coordinator. If you have ever attended Comdex in Vegas then I was one of those seeing that the buses that shuttled you to and from the convention ran smoothly. Fun job and I really liked it. But alas, my wife suddenly died of Lupus in 2001. I cremated her body and returned the ashes to her family in the Philippines. Then I met another wonderful lady (30 years younger, 24 at the time) who I married about 13 months after the death of my wife. I met her in Angeles when I brought the ashes to the Philippines. I returned to Vegas a liquidated all my assets in about 90 days and returned to live forever in the Philippines. I have been here since. My wife is now 31 and just as sexy as when I married her.
I worked briefly on Clark due to a friend who had a business there wanting my expertise in something called Medical Transcription. I had just started doing it for someone else for some additional income and something to do. Actually we Americans were the QA for the Filipino transcriptionists. My friend wanted to start his own transcription business and we tried and tried for 2 years but just could not make it work successfully. I then managed a bar briefly for the same guy and then a hotel and restaurant for him also. Finally about Christmas 2007 I had had enough of Angeles and the bars and moved up to La Union (about 5 hours north of Clark) where the US used to have Wallace Air Station. I have been here for just over a year and live 100 yards off the beach. I was diagnosed with COPD about 2 years ago and this climate is much better for me.
For something to do nowadays, I mostly play billiards at the local VFW or ride my motorcycle. In the evening I go to watch the beautiful sunsets.
My youngest son, Brian, died in a single motorcycle accident in Las Vegas about 4 years ago.

Ashland High School Scholarship Fund
It has become tradition that AHS Classes make a donation to the Ashland High School Scholarship Fund on their 50th reunions. Our class began raising donations at our 45th reunion. We set a goal of raising $6,600 from our class. $2485 was raised at our 45th reunion. That leaves $4115 to be raised to reach our goal.
How to contribute: If you wish to deduct your contribution on your taxes, send a separate check with your registration payable to "Ashland High School." If you don't intend to deduct your contribution from your taxes, add you contribution to your registration check and indicate the amount on the registration form and make your check payable to "AHS Class of 66." If you wish to contribute to the scholarship fund but are unable to attend the reunion, send the registration form and check with out filling in the registration amount.
Sunday gathering in Lithia Park
We have reserved the Cotton Memorial area in Lithia Park for Sunday Aug, 7th from 1 to 5 pm. Many class members have expressed an interest in inviting other classes. At the appropriate time I will post an invitation on the Facebook group of the AHS Alumni to the classes of '64 '65 '67 and '68. While members of other classes will be welcome, we wanted to specifically invite those classes that we attended high school with. If you have friends in those classes, please invite them to this event.
