Fairborn High School
Class Of 1964

 

         Fairborn High School

                            Class Of "1964     

                              "Go Flyers"

         Welcome to the Class Of 1964 web site         
                     
ANNOUNCEMENTS

Covid 19 has reveaked an interesting glitch in our communication system.  For years Denny, and now John, have sent messages out to the class via email blasts.  Because of the large number of classmates they have sent the messages out in batches.  In the past this has not been a problem because they have largely been informational messages.  Since Covid we have been using this system to generate conversations amongst ourselves.  And there in lies the rub.  When you "respond to all" to one of these messages the response only goes out to those in your "batch" and not to everyone.  (I have not been ignoring you - I did not get your message).

Sooo, after throwing several alternatives against the wall, here is our solution.  We are going to take advantage of the great tool we already have in place - this website.  I will, from now on, be posting messages either to the home page or to the message board.  For those of you who have not joined the website I will, in the next few days, isolate you into a batch by yourselves and send the message to you via email.  Again, if you respond it will just be to those in that limited batch.

I really encourage those of you who have not joined to do so.  It is a simple process, non intrusive, and free.  You can share as much or as little of yourself as you like on your profile so there is really no downside.

To those of you who have already joined, please check your profile and make sure your information is up to date.  Especially your email address.  The site uses this email address to communicate with you so it is important that it be your active address.

Please stay safe and keep in touch

Well, here we are into our 4th month of our new normal. I don't know about you but for me, and for many of those to whom I have spoken in the last week, a sort of lethargy is sinking in.  I try really hard to fight it - get up each morning with all the good intentions in the world and a nice list of things to get done - and then it is 8 at night and I have done nothing.  Well not exactly nothing.  I have binge watched Perry Mason,  I have played countless games on my laptop, I have read a lot, I have napped, but nothing on my to do list.   Tomorrow morning will be different.  Right!

Anyway, FYI the mini reunion is still cancelled.  Not only are we still in the midst of it all but Fairborn is a hot spot.  Soooo - the only responsible thing to do is not congregate.  If any of you are set on getting together you are on your own.  I just don't want to read a headline that the lastest outbreak is centered around Fairborn class of 64.  You all mean way too much to me.

Please continue to reach out to each other.  Let us know how you are doing and what you are doing.  The message stream is still going on the web site.  Speaking, if I might,  for those of us who live alone your messages mean a lot.  More than you can imagine.

Here's to getting at least one thing on my to do list done tomorrow.

Kathy Goodman

From Gayle (Thomas) Reed:

Mini Reunion postponed

While the mini reunion has never been an "official" activity of the reunion committee, it is the opinion of the committee to postpone it until things are safer.  We are considering perhaps having some sort of outdoor activity like a picnic later this summer.  It is impossible to even guess what the summer will bring so we will wait and see.  We just feel it is not safe ot consider gathering in the numbers we usually draw.

I heard a new term today - "quarantine apathy",    As things are opening up please be careful and vigilent.  The virus is not gone, it is still out there and just as dangerous as ever.  Please, please, please continue to be safe.  You are very important to us.

The message board (look to the menu to the left of this screen) is open.  Drop us a note and let us know how you are doing.  We care and are anxious to know you are alright.  Continue to reach out to each other.

Be safe.  We are all in this together.

Kathy

 

 

This is a really difficult and scary time for us all.  As I sat here this afternoon trying to find the words of encouragement I could send to you, I realized it is not the words that are important - it is the saying them.  I would like to say we have weathered worse, but I am not sure we have.  We have faced some difficult events in our 7 plus decades but this one is different.  In the past we have been able to come together for comfort.  We could hug each other, cry together, pray together, console each other.  Now we must face this isolated, and for some of us alone.  So our words have become exponentially important.  They are all we have.  Please reach out to each other - email, text, call.  If you are alone, know you have classmates who will be there for you.  You can reach out to me at any time.  I have opened a new thread in the User Forum for you to use as a place to share.  Please stay strong, stay safe.  We will get through this together.

New to the website?
 
Please read the text below as it will answer many of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.
This website was created for the sole purpose of keeping our class updated on each other and upcoming events like reunions etc...and to foster a sense of connection between all of us no matter how many miles and years keep us apart! This site will improve over time and as more of YOU take an active part to sign up and give your input about the this site and on future events.
It is completely free. You will never be asked to pay to make a profile or to be able to access other alumni profiles.

You have the option of password protecting your personal profile which blocks the general public and search
engines from accessing your profile details. Once you create a profile, you will also be able to see the profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them.

All contact information that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. It will NOT be shared by 3rd parties or distributed for solicitation. Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your profile.
When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address is not viewable, though an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so that they can respond.

You will need to make your individual profile in order to access any password protected pages on the site. Start by clicking on the "Classmate Profiles" link. This will take you to a page with all your classmate names, including yours. Find your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile. The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password. You can personalize your page with information such as what have you been up to since graduation in '70, school memories, your family, and photos.

If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. Note there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to you email inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

If you cannot find your name on the "Classmate Profile" page, please contact us to have your name added.
 
More Instructions:

How to upload pictures to your web page:
1. Be sure you are logged in on the home page. In the links on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS, click on the link: Edit/Upload Photos.
2. The Photo page will appear and you’ll see a gray box titled: Upload New photo. Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.
3. The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploading your photos. There are 3 places on this page to make entries.
Sort: The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page. By default your pictures will appear in the order you entered them, so this isn’t important for your first picture. But later if you want picture #5 to appear as #1, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures. If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures do not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4.)
Caption: Caption is the description you write for your picture.
Browse: This is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.
4. Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.
5. Now click the Browse button. A list of folders on your computer will show up. Locate the folder that holds your picture. For most classmates this will be the My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder. When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures. This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.
6. Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.
7. Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.
8. Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.
9. Click the SAVE CHANGES button.
Now go to your Profile page and look for your picture and caption.



If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update those in your profile so when we download a hard copy we will have your correct information.

Enjoy and have fun- this is YOUR website and will only be as good as you decide it will be, so spread the word!!
  • If you know how to contact anyone that has not filled out a profile please contact them and give them the website. We need to try to get as many as possible to sign up if we want our future events to be successful. If you know their email you can just enter it and an invitation to the site will be sent.
My hope is that you can all reconnect friendships, create new ones, enjoy fond memories of the past and create new memories for the future.
 
If you know of a school or class that would like to use Class Creator to create their website, refer them to the link below and our class will receive $50.00.

Classmates,

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 noreply@classcreator.net (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 noreply@classcreator.net.

Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address noreply@classcreator.net when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting noreply@classcreator.net is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving emails from your fellow Classmates.

Stop and take a moment to whitelist noreply@classcreator.net right now, and ensure you stay connected!
