As Far As I Know, There is No Longer An Active

Far Rockaway High School Alumni Association

And Their P.O. Box Has Been Closed...Sorry!  9/8/00

As far as we are aware, the FRHS Alumni Association is no longer operating as an organization.  It's been several years since anyone has received any official word from them.

As a result of their decision to call it quits, Carol Marston, Class of 1956 and myself, Alan 'Skip' Weintock, Class of 1963, have created the Far Rockaway High School 'On-Line' Alumni Association.  Click here for details.

 If you have any specific questions, please write to me at

Far Rockaway High School's 
Reunion Information Page

This page is being kept on the website for those grads who may not have attended or even heard about the reunion. This in some small way, will give them the flavor of what they missed. Those of us who have been on the net for awhile, sometimes forget that some grads are just getting on line and have never seen any of these pages. Just think about how you felt the first time you clicked on to this site!

You're invited to attend the
Far Rockaway High School
Centennial Celebration
The Weekend of September 26 - 28, 1997

The following is the latest information from the Centennial Reunion Committee.

The Alumni Reunion Committee has been hard at work planning something for everyone. All alumni are cordially invited and encouraged to join in the fun!

Join your old friends for a weekend of nostalgia, music, spirits and food! We'll dance to the familiar tunes of the past 100 years. But most importantly, we will see each other again - to share old memories and to honor a great educational institution - Far Rockaway High School!

A Journal will be compiled with lasting memories of days gone by. An Alumni Directory will contain current information about former classmates.

This "once in a lifetime" event is something you DO NOT want to miss!
