Support Freedom

Lord, give us the strength to overcome our sadness and loss during this violent time in our lives and country. Help us to rise up and protect our shores from those filled with hate.

Amen

Back home for the big reunion, I finally got to ride the Staten Island Ferry for the first time.  It was a beautiful, crisp afternoon and I shot this photo of lower Manhattan, never dreaming of the devastation which would change this picture forever.

Welcome to the 
FRHS Online Alumni Association
Official Newsletter's "new look"!
The links on the left will take you to the pages usually found in the table of contents on my first page and those pages will also have links of their own.  This was done to reduce clutter.

We have several new features and my favorite has to be the new FRHS search engine, found on both my Alumni List first page and our home page.  It doesn't function quite like Yahoo or Ask Jeeves, but it will find who you are looking for on this site.  Please read the tutorial I wrote before using it.

Also, the female alumni are finally listed by maiden name.  I know you've wanted this for a long time and it should have been done that way in the beginning, but better late than never.

Please let me know if you would like to see any particular features in here because this is YOUR newsletter and as I have frequently said, it will not function without your input.

FRHS 1956

New feature:  From time to time I've helped some of you with technical problems.  I'm going to post those questions and answers in a new area called "Techie Tips."  If you have a question, please send it to me at lebaroness2@cox.net.  If I don't know the answer to your question, I have tons of resources and will be glad to research it for you.  Click the shell in the Techie Tips area or this link to go to the page.  I've included some virus information and some neat tips and tricks picked up over time that you may find useful.
