More Info
The planning team for our upcoming reunion has been very busy lately to get our party started October 20-22, 2017! Forty years, can you believe it?! Please stay closely tuned for ongoing details via our personal web page at www.tempehighschool1977.org (which has lasted since the 30th reunion, Facebook like, before Facebook!) and/or our class Facebook Group (maintained and monitored by CJ Obray). We are super excited to see you! Your presence is what will make this reunion amazingly awesome! Go Buffs!

BTW, **there has been a change in the Friday venue informal event. Instead of the Tapacubo bar, we will have a backyard barbecue at Tom Ohmart's house near the 101 (the Price freeway if you have been gone awhile) and Warner Avenue. This change will provide us a larger space and give us more options to host fun activities. The updated venue schedule and information will be posted on our two sites.**

There will be a silent auction on Saturday (must be present to win) and a drawing for raffle items also held on Saturday (need not be present to win). If you are interested in donating raffle items or have resources, please contact Tom at 480-229-4837 or Double.o.enterprises@gmail.com.

Several classmates have inquired about donating to the reunion fund. In response, we have established several SPONSORSHIP LEVELS. If you are able to participate, please know this will generously assist in planning an affordable weekend for everyone. Please contact Tom Ohmart to communicate your interest. We will need your response by August 18th in order to establish a per person charge for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday events. If you have any questions about the cost, perhaps a specific need or concern, please do not hesitate to contact Tom or Kristi personally - we absolutely do not want cost to keep you from joining us at the reunion. If you are interested in sponsorship, please contact Tom at 480-229-4837 or Double.o.enterprises@gmail.com.

There are some really cool perks to being a sponsor, so please help out if you can.

Thank you so much.

THS77 Web page Changes

There are many web page changes. Includes the new "In Memoriam" section.
Logged in users can add their own notes and pictures remembering our departed class mates.

Bios can now contain limited formating elements.
In your profile you can now upload up to five photos. Uploading photos is much easier now. You don't have to do any resizing! Each photo can have its own caption.

There is a new Class Notes section where you can leave notes and pictures for logged on users to see. Similar to the old blog section, but much easier to use. There is no longer a separate password to leave notes as there was for the blog section.

Stay current!
Keep your contact information current on this web page.
