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. Include (1) your full name (maiden name of ladies); (2) complete mailing address including apartment number and zip+4; (3) your phone number; (4) your e-mail address; and (5) month/year of graduation. Write [email protected]

Your dessert will be many happy classmates thrilled to reunite with you at our upcoming reunions. Your memories are everlasting only when preserved.
