Our 40th reunion (Saturday, August 25, 2007) is history. If you missed it, we are sorry. But don't dispair; come to our 50th reunion. Wow! Just think: a half century! Does it feel like that to you?
Those attending the 40th reunion all seemed to have a good time. We put up pictures from the event, so that those of you couldn't attend can attend vicariously.
We also went on a guided tour of the Whittier High School campus at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 25, 2007, led by WHS Archivist, Morris Sawyer, husband of our own teacher, Lorraine McPherson Sawyer. The tour lasted about 2.5 hours and included a wonderful 18 minute video on the first 100 years of WHS. The tour was fun; we got to see all the changes that have been made to our school!
Right after the tour, people didn't want to break apart from their informal conversations with classmates, so they trekked down to Rick's Drive In and Out fast food restaurant at Greenleaf and Penn Streets in Whittier and had lunch and conversation. It was fun.
The site of the 40th reunion event at the Virginia Country Club, a beautiful setting in Long Beach, couldn't have been better. The food was excellent; the facilities were perfectly sized; the view was spectacular; we even had access to a large plasma TV to display a powerpoint presentation of the pictures of our classmates and school.

The next morning, Sunday, August 26, those of us who spent the night at the hotel had "Breakfast at the Marriott" starting at 8:30 a.m. People didn't want to stop their conversations with classmates. They lingered until 11:30 a.m. It was fun.
Postcards. If you received a postcard in the mail in December 2006, please do not assume that it means we know where you are. We mailed out postcards in December to some of the classmates with whom we have not yet had fresh contact by phone, email or mail. The mailing addresses came from lists from the 40th reunion and the 30th reunion: 20 years ago. We had no idea if they were still valid. If our website is still showing you without the "Found" notation next to your name, please email us with your contact information.
Please help us find everyone, so that all of us will have an opportunity to come to the event.

Check back from time to time, both to see the further construction and to see who we have found so far. The "Found" tag is applied to those persons for whom we have fresh knowledge that contact information is valid. We have address lists from both the 20 year and the 30 year reunion, but do not as yet know the validity of that data. Additionally, we gathered a number of contacts in approach to our 40th. As the number of pictures is about 1000 (including the teachers) if you have dial-up internet, it will take minutes to finish. Be sure to look at the teachers, too; they are at the bottom.
