Remember Me?

The reonion committee encourages all classmates to register on this site and to keep their profile up to date.

We also ask everyone who took pictures during the recent 40th reunion to send those to us at wrhs1970 at gmail.com so we can add them to the photo albums.

After YOU have registered, if you are in touch with any WRHS 1970 classmates, please encourage them to look at this reunion site and connect with the rest of us.

We need your help finding our classmates! If you are in touch with classmates, don’t assume they are aware of the next reunion or this web site. Please contact them and encourage them to register here. And if you know of classmates who are deceased, please send us their names and any information you have.

Photos from the 40th reunion are available to classmates who have registered.
