Dear Classreport Users: We are one of the premier social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family-owned and operated business with less than 15 staff, yet we freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users (See Bravos). We are funded solely through voluntary contributions. Despite our small size, we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So we are asking for your support. If everyone reading this gives $15, our fundraiser will 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 for your support. Click here to help out now.

Courtesy of UHC: Volunteer your time. Giving back to your community can be very rewarding. In one recent study, a whopping 94% of people reported that volunteering lifted their mood. And that's not all. More than three-quarters also said that volunteering made them feel healthier overall. So when you help others, you just might help yourself too.

Are you ready, willing and able to give yourself to a good cause? Tell me about your experience and skills and I'll tell you how we can best apply them to the TJHS Class of '61 and our goals. A rewarding volunteer job may be in your immediate future. Email TJHS1961@aol.com

We've only begun to whet your appetite with our news and those delectable photo and video h'or deurvres. If you're ready for the main course, please consider a yearly membership in the TJHS Alumni Association. You'll receive Alumni newsletters about all graduating classes of TJHS, filled with personal stories, tributes, reunion info ... and much more . . . all mailed to your home ... for a membership fee that is more economical than five cups of java that won't last as long as the written word.

How much, you ask? Only $10 per year (to help defray the cost of printing, postage and handling).

Stu Rothstein is ready to mail a membership application to your home. Please contact him at sturothstein64@yahoo.com - provide your name (ladies, please include your maiden and married names), complete address, phone number and month/year of graduation. Your dessert will be many happy classmates thrilled to reunite with you at our upcoming reunions.

Your memories are everlasting only when preserved.

Stay in touch!
