 Official Website for VHS Class of 64

Updated Monday, February 15, 2016

Occasionally, some youngster makes a comment about how 'easy' our growing up years must have been, compared to today.  

OK...we choose to remember the best moments, and the fun times.  But, ours was not a history without some incredible changes.  Have your younger generations watch this SlideShow and the Billy Joel song.  EVERY generation has it's moments... bet you forgot some of these:

 

PS  After you watch it through to the end, this slide show has some wonderful tricks.  If you right click on any slide, you'll be taken to an explanation of what the slide is about (doesn't work in Fullscreen Mode).  Fascinating!!

 

 

And this didn't even touch on Viet Nam and 'the rest'.  As the song says:

Click Here    We Didn't Start the Fire...

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hello Viking Classmates - The election season is again well underway. (Some may say it never seems to end). It is common therefore, that folks will be talking about this. This is our right as Americans and it is well and good.that we do this. Some would like to share their political thoughts with others via our webite. However, in the past we have received comments that not eveyone wants to receive emails through our website that express political opinions. Out of respect for these wishes, yet still wishing to provide a way for classmates to participate in such discussions, we established a user forum called "Political Free For All" on our site. It is an enter at your own risk forum where political dialogue is expected and encouraged. It can be accessed by clicking on the User Forums and Help tab on the left side of our home page. Want to vent about politics? There's your place! Thank you all for your cooperation in this.

From Dawn Higgens:

 

I came across this saying again today, and as we are all aging just a little, thought it might be appropriate and amusing!!



As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play, on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 50, 60 & 70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I will.

I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.
They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But, broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile, and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it).

From Tony Scarton 

 

Phil Ewing, VHS class of 1966, Valley High School Historian, has put together a beautiful compilation of historical facts about the north valley, photos, and general memorabilia regarding the times and people that have passed through the halls of VHS. There is "what or where are they now" type info as well regarding old hangouts, neighborhoods, etc.
Great read---you can get a copy for yourself from Phil.
Email is phile@thuntek.net

And, an addendum by Tony to his preivous announcement above:

 

After talking to Phil--he said APS is in the process of a total revamp of Valley. They have already done the gym and will work in phases to complete entire school revamp within the next 3 years. We may have to take another tour at our next reunion.

Thanks Phil,


Tony Scarton
