JUST OVER TWO YEARS AWAY! ~ Our Fifty-Five Year Reunion
Location to be announced
Cost to be announced
October 1, 2016 is getting closer and closer by the day so it's time to start making your plans to attend our 55 year reunion.
We know several of you already had commitments before we announced when and where the 50 year reunion in October of 2011 would be taking place and weren't able to attend.
This time, you won't have to miss out schmoozing with your OLD friends because we didn't let you know far enough in advance. (Or - far less tactfully - no excuses this time, kids!)
Lookin' forward to seeing everyone on 10/1/2016!

Shameless Solicitation for Donations
At the suggestion of our classmate, Tim McPherson, we are inviting those of you who have enjoyed our reunions in the past to contribute a few of your hard-earned shekels (or even the ones you came by easily) to the “GHS Class of 1961” reunion fund. Your donations will help us with required upfront payments for facilities, decorations, mailings, etc.
AND, if it is as spectacularly successful as we know you can make it, we might even be able to help offset expenses for a few classmates on limited incomes who would otherwise love to attend but simply can’t afford it.
Make checks and money orders payable to: GHS Class of 1961
and mail to: GHS Class of 1961, 1109 Oak Grove Drive, Eagle Rock, CA 90041
NEW THIS YEAR! While donations by check or money order are always welcome, this year we are able to accept contributions via PayPal at "email@example.com"...

HOMECOMING 2011 REUNION PICTURES STILL AVAILABLE ONLINE
$10.00 for unlimited picture downloads (See NOTICE below)
As of October, 2013, the pictures and portraits taken during our Homecoming 2011 Reunion are still available for viewing and purchase online. You may download as many pictures as you want for the single low price of only $10.00.
NOTICE: Because there is no way to pay for bulk purchases of digital pictures on the photographer's website, there will be no on-line "shopping cart" or "checkout" procedure as such. Instead, we ask you, as members of a generation raised within a system of values and honesty, to remit payment for your downloads to the name and address at the bottom of this announcement.
If you need help figuring out how to download the pictures, and/or if you're computer challenged / illiterate / phobic, or simply prefer old-fashioned photos, contact Walt Conner at the email address listed below and I will gladly help you.

After high school and college I ended up in the Army in 1964. After Vietnam in 1966 spent a few months in Hawaii then back to California.
Started working for the Los Angeles Branch of Equifax Insurance Services in 1968 with transfers to Oakland, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Left Equifax in 1992 and went to work for the State of Arizona - first as Insurance Fraud Supervisor then as State Risk Management Adminstrator - retired from the State in 2005.
My wife Gail and I have lived in Arizona for 25 years after first living in Northern & Southern Calif and Las Vegas.
In 1997, my oldest daughter, Jennifer, was killed in an automobile accident caused by a red light runner. She was a senior in high school. Following Jennifer's death, I formed a non-profit traffic safety organization, Red Means Stop Traffic Safety Alliance, providing education and awareness programs to schools and businesses, on the consequences of red light running. In 1998 I was successful in having the Arizona State Legislature pass "Jennifer's Law" which increased fines and penalties for red light runners who injure or kill others.
In the last 5 years, Gail and I have traveled a lot and spend time volunteering. Recently returned from our 4th trip to Maui and last summer went to Alaska for the second time.
We live in a residential lake community and enjoy the peace and quiet on the lake.
