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 hors d'oeuvres. 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 Stu via email (you can view the address in his profile when you sign in). Please provide Stu with your first and last names (ladies, include both 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!
