Save the Date and Spread the Word!!! Planning is well underway for our 45th Reunion celebration. The event will take place the weekend of September 22-24, 2017 in and around the Annapolis MD area. The main event will be a Saturday afternoon (September 23) informal picnic/BBQ at Camp Letts in Edgewater, MD. We also expect to have a Friday night mixer in Annapolis and a Sunday brunch or bay cruise. We welcome any suggestions or feedback you have on the plans or ideas for venues and any offers to help!!!
Everyone can help by perusing our "missing" list and nudging any of those you are in contact with to signup on our website. With today's technology no one should be lost or missing (unless they want to be)!!!!
Help keep our website relevant by updating your information and posting pictures of you and your family. There must be thousands of grandkids out there by now... let's see if they looked like you did when you were a kid!!!
Finally, Happy 62nd Birthday Year to all you CHS 72 Alumni. For many of you, this is the beginning of drawing Social Security. Many others have already retired. For those working or retired, near or far, we wish you good health and happiness in your life.
Stay in touch!!! We will provide regular updates as the date, events, venue, and cost become finalized. We will soon have a dedicated page on our website with reunion information and updates.
Your CHS72 Reunion Committee.
9/29/2014: Here's a special treat, courtesy of Scott Casto, class of '71. His Dad took this video of the '71 Homecoming game from November, 1970. Scott had it converted to digital to preserve it for the ages. How many faces and jersey numbers do you recognize? We were lowly juniors that year, but, no doubt, many of us were on the field, in the stands, in the band, or doing cheers and pom poms. Click here to go to Picasa website to view the video.
The Class Creator reunion website management software we use has added a new feature, as described below:
INTRODUCING THE NEW "WHAT'S NEW" PAGE
A new "What's New" page has been added to your web site.
The What's New page aggregates new data from around your web site and displays it on one convenient page.
The What's New page contains 3 sections:
Recent Classmate Messages:
Anyone can enter a message at the top of the What's New page for all classmates to see. It's a great way to post a greeting to all classmates. Try attaching a photo or video! Note this box is a replication of the "Share a Message with Classmates" box at the top of your Classmate Profile page. Both of these boxes are one in the same and do the same thing. i.e. enter a message directly from the What's new page, and the message will also appear at the top of your Profile. Enter a message from the top of your Profile, and the message will also appear at the top of the What's New page. Both locations are a convenient way to share a message with your classmates.

One of our biggest challenges is holding on to the site members we already have as people change email accounts and internet providers. Each time we send out a mass email, a few "old" addresses bounce back as undeliverable. Below are the members we have "lost" because we no longer have a valid email address. If you are on this list or you know how we can contact them, please let us know and we will help get their CHS 72 page up to date. Thanks.
Jean Colbert (Thomas), Patricia Holland (Budd), Cindy Carlson (Atkins), John Gray, Pamela Anderson, Timothy Hanley, Wendell Kopf, Cindy McClelland (Michael), Kathleen McManus (Kyler), Mary Dale Grayson (Morris)
