Class Notes, Reunions and Contacts

We Want to Hear From You! (Scroll down for Class Contacts)

Your classmates would like to know what is happening with you! It doesn't matter if you have a fancy job or a glamorous lifestyle.  Any information about marriages, births, careers, etc. can be published in this newsletter.  Also, submissions are always welcome about past or future reunions, and interesting alumnus, or anything you wish that is related to Valley Forge High School.  Feel free to include photos!    Email

And don't forget to join our Yahoo email list. It's private and you must identify yourself before being allowed to join.   Be sure and set your membership options to daily digest so you only get one email per day with all the day’s messages in it.  Otherwise you may get too much mail at times.  You can also set it to “no email’ if you only want to read the messages by visiting the site.  Only the moderator will have access to your email address.  You must have a Yahoo ID to join, but it’s FREE!
