VIEW ALL BIOGRAPHIES



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. Courtesy of UHC.

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 ThomasJeffersonHS1961@gmail.com

TJHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION We've only begun to whet your appetite with news and delectable photo and video hors d'oeuvres of our 1961 classmates. If you're ready for the main course, please consider a yearly membership in the TJHS Alumni Association. You'll receive Alumni newsletters 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 will mail a membership application to your home. Please contact Stu via email (view the address in his profile when you sign in). The application when completed should include (1) maiden name of ladies; first and last name; (2) complete mailing address including apartment number and zip+4; (3) your phone number; and (4) 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.
