Doug Yost class of 1970 passed away in October. He did not want any notices or service.

He was a good man and a good friend.

Doug and I were in grade school together at St. Matthews. He was a great guy. 
RIP Doug and God speed.

We're takin' it to the streets!
All '60's & '70's Class Block Party
September 21, 2024
Third & Belle
For more details and to stay up-to-date, please accept my FB invitation or request to be added to the FB page for the All '60's & '70's Class Party. It promises to be an awesome time! As soon as we have the band secured we'll let you know.
The event is FREE! 
(food and drinks will be available for purchase outside of Mac's)
I tried to invite everyone I could to the FB page, but many classmates have duplicate pages, some classmates don't use social media, and some seldom check their invites.
Here is a direct link to the All All '60's & '70's Class Party:
Should be a BLAST!!!

Who uses this website?

Do you use or not use our Facebook page (Alton Senior High School Class of 1970)?

How often do you come to this website?

Thank you!

Like Marilyn, I too use the web site when I get a message that someone posted. Also browse occasionally when an old familiar name comes up.

I do not use Facebook at all.

Like the previous responses, when I receive an email, I will go to this website and sometimes will browse thru!

Thank you everyone for your feedback on both platforms. It looks like one way or another, information is getting through both. 😎

Class call to arms…

We used to see each other every single day…for years! Now, we only have an opportunity to see each other every 5 years. To find out someone dear to us as a child is now facing a challenge - alone - can be heartbreaking, knowing that we would have been willing to be there for that person had we of known.

It’s no secret we are getting older. It’s also no secret that many of us are facing challenges. Some challenges are health related; some are loss; and some are mental or emotional challenges.

You’ve all seen my posts asking for prayers, but not naming anyone. It’s because they want to keep their challenge private…and that’s ok. Not everyone posts their life on social media. And just because someone posts family photos, vacations, memories, recipes, or wordy-challenges/games does not mean they are without challenge.

Privately, in the past year, we have had classmates have:

Open heart surgery,

Heart attack,



Loss of a spouse,

Loss of a sibling or child,



Multiple sclerosis,



Caring for a spouse,

..and more

Had we of reached out to each of the above people could it have made their journey a little less of a challenge? I’m betting it would have.

In high school we had clicks. Some say we still do. But isn’t it time to see the real picture…the real picture that we are all ONE…

One class…

in One town…

One group of friends…

at One school…

One entity that lived as only we could. 

We Are One.

If we could each put aside differences from so long ago and reach out to a classmate by text or phone…it might just make their day…and yours.

Anyone, anytime…call or text me. I always answer my phone: 904-487-8485

Dear Classmates,

There is a new post on our private Facebook Group Page that is asking for feedback. It will NOT be posted on this website.

A link to the specific post is on FB is: Class Reunion Feedback
