Dear Classmates,

Thank you! Your generous gifts of money and notes of appreciation and encouragement have allowed us to pay for our class website for another 5 years.  But we can still use your help. In the past, several of you have sent me notifications of deaths of our class members.  Please continue to do so, as well as provide other news that can be shared with classmates. You can send information to me by email, snail mail, and/or through this website. (Contact Us)

In addition, we would love to hear from you!  Have you moved?  How's your family? What hobbies have kept you busy lately? David Williams has set us an example recently that you can see at this website (see "Guest Book").  And if you haven't entered your name and photo in the "Classmates" section, please consider taking a few minutes to do that, as well.  

Thanks again for your support for this website!

Dear Class of 1962 Blackshirts,

A year or so before our 50th class reunion, I offered to start up a class website after the example of the class of 1960 (of which my brother was a part and was involved at their website).  I got needed help from some of those (1960) webmasters and helpers and from the site they used (, and from my local computer guru who helps me do computer things I don’t understand (which is a lot!). What is at our site is far from perfect, but it does have some great photos (which many of you have submitted), some information, and mostly, for those who have entered their names, a way to keep in touch with classmates.  I have attempted to keep up with obituaries, but now am way behind, due to family circumstances: deaths, family health issues, new responsibilities.
I need your help. It costs $300. to keep up our site for 3 more years. It costs $450 for 5 years. I am accepting checks for any amount ($5., 15., 25, 50… send to Ann Hamilton Moore, 700 Cedar Hill Drive, Evansville, IN 47710) which will keep our site alive for another few years, according to how much we raise. This is due by mid August or our site and the domain name dies.  (Any extra we receive could go toward the next reunion, date yet to be chosen; Sandy has a lot on her plate now, as well.)
Just as important as financial help is website help. I am convinced there are a few of you who could keep up the site, if it is important to you. It doesn’t have to be limited to one person. The site ( offers great help, which is a free phone call away.  Alan Dooley and Jim Cronin have already offered to help as they are able.  If you can turn on a computer and get to the internet, and can type a little bit, then you could do this website!  Then it’s up to the rest of us to get you the information you want at the website.  (like obituaries, which many of you have done).
Thanks for helping out in any way you can!!  Looking forward to hearing from you. (Please share this information with others from our class. Thanks!)
