Dear Classreport users:
We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003.
We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a
million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users:
We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same
costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support.
If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would 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.

During my senior year at the Univeristy of Dayton and for the next I was employed as the campaign manager for the Democratic candidate for the US Congress in the 3rd district of Ohio (we lost) but being at the 68th Democratic Convention made it all worthwhile.
I then joined Marriott Corporation and for the next 19 years worked in hotel operations in the field and at corporate headquarters in Bethesda and retired as a Vice President and General Manager of Marriott's Great America theme park in Santa Clara, CA. when the company decided to divest itself from the theme park business. Althoug tangential, I kept my ties with Marriott when I joined a hotel management company and development company in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. as the Executivee Vice President that had several Marriott hotels in its portfolio - Harbor Beach Hotel & the Marina Marriott, as well as boutique resorts - Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa in CA. the Pier House Resort in Key West, and others. The Savings & Loan collapse forced us to curtail our major expansion plans. I purchased one of the smaller parts of my responsibilities, Fort Lauderdale Yacht Charters and grew it to be the largest yacht/catering company in South Florida. During those 20 plus years we founded a restaurant consulting company and a marina development and management firm as well. I was pretty busy to say the least!
Now retired I mostly spend time with "my lady" here in the Ft. Lauderdale area and our house in Old Town Key West. My step daughter resides in Maryland with her 2 children. My oldest son and his wife and 2 children are in Phoenix and my youngest son is here in south Florida as a chef on a mega yaacht. We get together frequently.
The past 50 years have flown by, packed full of fun and fascination, as the Dead said "What a long strange trip it's been".
