All email addresses listed on this site have been "cloaked" so they cannot be found by web "robots" that prowl the Internet to harvest email addresses and add you to junk mail lists.

Here are the various sections in our site:

Classmate List.  This is list of all classmates, where you can see what's happened in the nearly 50 years since we left Ben Lomond  (if the classmate choses to make the information public).  If you would like yours added (and everyone wants to know what you're doing!), send it to the Webmaster at the link above.  A current picture would be great as well -- I can convert pretty much any format you can email me.  If you don't want part or any of it made public, just let me know in the email (but we'd still like to collect current contact information).

In Memory Of - Unfortunately, this section gets longer and more extensive all the time, but you'll appreciate knowing if someone has beat the rest of us to the other side. There is also a section for teachers and staff, so please forward any information about them you may have.

Yearbooks - Selected pages from all three years' yearbooks. This will be expanded as time allows. Again, if there is something specific you'd like to see, use the link above to let the Webmaster know.

Discussion Page - Hopefully, this will become a place for discussions among classmates. It is simple "forum" software and is easy to use, so give it a try. Any topic is okay, from "what ever happened to," to current events, to asking for help or advice. You need to sign up the first time and jump through a few hoops to control spam.  After that, you can post freely.  The old discussion page is also copied onto a separate page there if you want to read it. 

Old photos - If you have any old photos of yourself or classmates you'd like to submit, please send them to the Webmaster    and they will be added here. There are sub pages with pictures classmates have submitted from their elementary years -- if you have any, contact the Webmaster and we'll get them added.

Past Reunions - This area contains lots of photos from prior reunions, listed by date (where remembered) and event.  We've also added a section with the classmate biographies from the 1984 reunion that's very interesting.
