Introduction - June 2007

       After spending spending several weeks tracking down classmates for their 35th Reunion, Larry Gomes and Bart Grimes thought it would be a good idea to share the information they found with the rest of the class through a website.

        In addition, the website would be a way for people to find classmates who they wanted to make contact with.

       As time goes on, we are also hoping that the website will become a way to share family and personal experiences through pictures and short stories.

       We hope you will enjoy rediscovering your old friendships and we look forward to hearing your story soon. 

       Many thanks go out to Kevin Goodwin who has been monitoring news on DLS Classmates and provided several timely updates for the website.
