MUST GET READY!!
It won't be long and October 13th will be here, and you'll want to be prepared to properly welcome your classmates at the reunion. All this derogatory talk about Senior memories is hogwash, and we aim to prove our 70-something minds are just as good as they ever were -- with a little bit of help, that is.
We'll review photos of our classmates, and I'm betting their names will pop into your minds like it was 1958! To prove, or to ensure this, a new photo will appear on this HOME PAGE on a regular basis; and you'll be asked to list the names of the classmates you recognize in a section on the left entitled "Remembering Bulldog Classmates." (It's right under "What's New?") Your name won't appear with your answer(s), unfortunately; but you'll have the inner satisfaction of knowing you helped another classmate who might be experiencing a momentary lapse in memory. (Photos and names appear below and on "Remembering Bulldog Classmates."
Jon Sampson, Joe Lamango, Bruce Mackey, Ron Missel, Tom Wonders
(Names are in alphabetical order by FIRST names -- oh yes,
I threw in a couple of extra wrestlers' names so it wouldn't be too easy.)
YEAR BOOK PUZZLES REVEALED!
John Mahalic, Judy Ondercho, Jon Sampson
Looking forward to seeing you!
STREATOR: OUR HOMETOWN*
Check out our new section which is all about Streator, "Streator: Our Hometown." When you click on it -- in the menu to the left of this HOMEPAGE -- a fly-out menu will appear, that lists a new page called "Streator." On it, is a brief history and other interesting facts about our city. Additional material about Streator will be posted in the coming weeks.
Also on the fly-out menu are the old pages "Before Our Time" and "During Our Time," which is being expanded with the addition of photographs from 1940 to the present. Enjoy!
*Just added another page entitled "Streator's Sesquicentennial." It only lists 2 activities, but more are promised by the city and will be posted.
STREATOR: DURING OUR TIME
Our series on Streator from 1940 to the present is back! The time period was covered with interesting articles from the Streatorland Historical's newsletter, and this time we'll cover the time period with pictures. Many of the photos, but not all, are from the Facebook page "You know you grew up in Streator . . ." which you should check out if you haven't. You'll enjoy its stories, questions and answers, and the memories the Facebook site contains.
To find our pictoral presentation, click on its title STREATOR, DURING OUR TIME from the column on the left of this page -- its about half way down -- or click on the link below:
HARDSCRABBLE 1958 POSTED
Our entire yearbook is now posted on our site. Click on the link below or just hover next to "Streator Twnshp High School" in the list on the left side of this HOME PAGE. A fly-out menu will appear and you can choose the yearbook title to bring up its page. Be sure to read the instructions so you can enlarge the images and navigate around the pages.
Classmates can now share photos on any topic they feel the rest of us would enjoy in picture galleries. And, they can add as many gallaries as they wish. Simply:
Remember, as always on this site, you must be able to find where the pictures are on your computer. In other words, what file they are in; most will be in "My Pictures."
Only you can add photos to galleries you create, and all photos you add will be credited to you inside your gallery!
Well, it's not quite "The Review" we knew in high school, but it can be a wonderful way to share photos of your families, trips, old high school pictures, and other stuff that interests you.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TOO ASK
We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.
The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.
A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.
So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
