We’d like your help!

PLEASE pass along addresses, emails, cell phones, land lines and health status regarding our LHS classmates.  Any phone calls you would like us to make, we will do gladly.  

It has always been the goal to compile a complete class list.  All LHS students who attended LHS for part or all of the years of fall 1958 through spring 1961.  This list appears on this website under “Classmate Profiles”.  For most we have their address.  But never sure if we’re current.  So please, pass along what you know.  Any name with no symbol following it, is a classmate who has not joined the website.

Future LHS Class of 1961 Reunion plans will be sent via U.S. Mail to everyone for whom we have an address. The LHS Class of 1961 website may be accessed by any classmate with an email address.  To join the website click on your name under "Classmate Profiles" and follow the directions.  Much more class information is available and shared regularly on the website for those who would like to use it.  

Click "Contact Us" - on the right, top of page.

Thank you!
