Alumni Directory
FYI--You know those postcards you get from Harris Connect asking you to update their expensive HGHS alumni directory? Well, call the company and update your info, because the Chappaqua Library keeps a copy of this comprehensive alumni directory in its reference collection--when the Internet fails to turn up an old classmate, you can call the library (914-238-4779) or stop by to look up the info.

Updating the '77 directory
I am currently trying to update the contact information that appeared in the 25th reunion directory for the class of 1977. If you would like me to update your information, especially your email address, please contact me at varangis (at) starpower.net. I have gotten back many of the emails I sent as "undeliverable." If you haven't received an email directly from me it means that the address I have for you is incorrect. Hope to hear from many more '77 alums!

I left after Chappaqua after seventh grade, but would be pleased to have my address included with the '77 class in some way. I tried to contact Barbara, but the e-mail was returned as unsendable. Perhaps you could try sending one to me.

I hope that my former classmates are all safe and not directly involved in any of this last weeks' horror.

My best to any and all.

Looking for...
I am hoping that someone can tell me how to get in touch with Jean or Jan Johnson who graduated in 1977. We lost track of one another years ago and I would love to reconnect.

Class of '77 Reunion? Anyone?
According to my sources, limited at best, there was not a reunion for our class's 20th....hmmmm..don't know why or what is going on...I even called HGHS and talked to Mr. Breen....
I don't know how we missed the boat or why one of those reunion companies couldn't have gotten it organized for all of us successful, busy Greeley alumni....
I don't what this means for future classes or for our 25th reunion.. Any ideas or info. please pass it on..
