Password Resets

2 ways to reset a password.

1.  Forgot Password? (PW) link to reset his/her PW.  Classmate (CM) goes to our homepage, clicks "Forgot Password" in the Log In box in the upper right corner.  This will allow CM to reset the lost PW.

2.  If CM is unable to reset PW, CM may no longer have access to the original email address, The administrator can log into CM's account details and change the CM's PW.  The PW is not shown for security purposes, but admin can still change PW.  Notified CM can then log in using the new PW.  Once logged in, the CM can then change the PW again, if he/she desires.

This just in:  We understand that more bears will be sharing retirement news soon!

August 14, 2016 my husband, Cary, and I will celebrate 40 years of marriage in Denver, while celebrating the birth of our newest grandchild in Denver.  Posted by Rebecca Clark Tagliaferri 7/15/2016

Hi everyone,
Since I can't make the reunion I'll give tell you what I'm up to: Our daughter, Jill, age 26 got married in April to a great guy she'd known for 10 years. As with any wedding it grew to 225 people but we enjoyed every moment of it. Two weeks later our son, Jame, age 22, graduated from University of North Carolina, Wilmington (UNCW) and by July was moving to NY to work in Times Square for Theatre Mama. He is a theatre major/stage manager. We miss him but not many people get to truly follow their dream.
Mike is working for Nationwide Ins after the law firm he worked for down sized. That was a fun 15 months!!
I am the Administrative Director/HR and "everything else" for a large cleaning company. It's a J.O.B.
I can't tell you how disappointed I am that I (we) can't make the reunion. The stars just didn't align. Oh well... have a wonderful time and know I am with you all in spirit. Take lots of pictures to post on the website.
God willing I'll be at the next one. 2022 or bust!

Classmates:  I'll be sending out a notice of Anne's visit.  There may be others who can get together.  I'll post a gathering place for those who can stop in.  Joyce DeBaun Eggleston



Thanks for the email.  It would be nice to get together again.  The dates I plan to be in Indpls are: Nov 18th – 23rd.  We need to leave early on Friday, 23rd to get back to my husband’s family reunion on Saturday.  I spoke with LaRee a couple of weeks ago.  It was nice to reconnect with her.  I would love to see Bobbie Carmichael, Steve Smith and Paul Bodily.  All of them lived in Chateau LeMans apartments when we going to high school.

You can call me anytime on my cell phone at 706-830-7713,

Have a fabulous weekend!

Great to see all the new classmates joining the web site. For anyone interested, we have a Facebook Group page for our class. If anyone wants to join, send me a friend request and I will add you.

Let's get some chatter going on either the Message Forum (general ongoing topics) or to be more specific, go to User Topic Forums.  Some Topics have been populated.  Choose a category and then post a response or new topic.  These Forums are open for classmates to post information and can be viewed by all classmates.  It's fairly straightforward, so everyone will adjust to its simplicity.  Administrators can be reached at the "Contact Us" prompt.

In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you whitelist the email address (that's a .net, not a .com).
What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address
Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address  when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving your emails from your fellow Classmates.
Stop and take a moment to whitelist right now, and ensure you stay connected!
