Hello fellow classmates from the class of '79.  I am happy to say that I have fulfilled some of my dreams since high school.  I went into the broadcasting field and was for a time, a radio newsreporter, living in Georgia.  I am now a divorced mother of 3 great kids, ages 19(girl), 17(boy), and 8(boy)!  I am currently living in Houston, Texas and am an LVN working at a nursing home.  I hope everyone from the class of '79 has had an exciting and wonderful life! God bless you all.

Hey what's up class of '79. After watching my kids play football makes me realize that I should have signed up for Far Rockaway High squad; that would have been a lot of fun. One of these days I’m going to puchase a Far Rockaway High School jacket and a gold school ring.

I would love to hear from my old friends from 1979, especially those who used to hang out at Milty's or Ellie's diner by the ell on 25th St.  It's been many years since I've heard from anyone and would love to get back in touch with them. Also wondering about any reunion that may be coming up anytime soon.  Please email me and let me know how you have been and how I can get in touch with you... Thanks... hope to hear from everyone soon.

Hello to all my fellow classmates! I'd love to hear from any or all of my old school buddies. A little about me. I'll be married 18 years (to Linda) on May 7th, we have a 15 year old son (Stephen) and an 12 year old daughter (Kylie). I've been an employee of Verizon for almost 20 years. I'm reliving my youth vicariously through my children. I love to travel, watch live sporting events and ride the worst roller-coasters at every amusement park (my kids make me). It's been a long 27 years since graduation day. I'd really like to hear from anyone who cares to contact me, and shoot-the-poop about old times and all the times in between. Looking forward.  Photo courtesy of Marty Nislick's Rockaway Memories website.

Hi to all my fellow graduates. I am so happy I signed on to our website, after many years...1979- a lifetime ago. I hope to hear from some of you and wish everyone a wonderful end to summer. I am happily married, and have three great kids, two of which are grown. My daughter Stephanie graduated college, and my son Russell is currently a junior at U of M and is a Jazz pianist. Then I have a 3 year old.. unexpected. Hope you all are well and lets talk up a storm!
