I have a contact list for several class of 1968 folks. I'll get the link to WHS "Old Timers" today. I do remember you. I'm not sure if it was through a sibling of a friend or what. Thanks for responding. Peggy Locke Dunn
Pam; I have the 1916 year book amd in it, it states that the class of 1914 is the first graduating class. it also states that it took five years for the first class to graduate. You can find this in the pages that are posted on this web site. I can also produce the year book.

Hi again Pam,
I heard, after the fact, that Mr. Hyytinen, my 7th grade teacher was at the picnic. I wish that I had heard this earlier so that I could have seen and talked with him as he was one of my favorite teachers. I'm not certain that you are the keeper of addresses but if so, would you have his address, and if not could you direct me to who might have it?
I had intended to get pictures of the bulletin boards you had set up at the picnic, dealing with committee member recruitment and business and add the info to the website but after taking all of those pictures, my camera ran out of juice, so I was unable to do so. Please let me know whatever info you would like added to the website and I'll put it up.
Gary Shaw, Washougal Class of 1959 is in the process of authoring a set of 6 books, titled The Eric English Chronicles, set in and around the Camas-Washougal area from the early 1960's through the present. I have attached a file that he sent me prefacing information about the books as well as introducing and relating a little about the main characters.... Also included is an outline of the happenings in the 19th Chapter of Book 1 intended for the publishers. It is not the chapter itself. Here now is the author. Click on the orange to open.

Dick Schaefer (WHS '55) has written a new book that he has published on Amazon. Its' title is The Final Conflict, and a download to your Kindle is available for $4.99. If you do not have a Kindle, a free Kindle application is available for downloading to your PC that will allow you read the book on it. Simply click on this link to get to Dick's book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AJB3SD6
Here is a brief synopsis of the book.
A small town man is thrust into 11 days of conflict over Christmas of 1972, against the best air defense structure ever faced by strategic bombers to achieve President Nixon’s "Peace with Honor" exit strategy against North Viet Nam.
This is the Viet Nam "12 O’Clock High" told from the standpoint of the crew force flying the mission: telling the TRUE story----not the written history documented in the archives of the Strategic Air Command.
Dick informs me that his earlier book Mill Town is still available by mail for $15 including shipping from his address. Scroll down to the bottom of this main page for more information.
The following has nothing whatsoever to do with Washougal senior alumni or nostalgia. It is a small widget that connects every 10 seconds with a random webcam across the world. Some will work, some will not, but when they do, they work well, delivering real time moving images of sights around the world.
Simply click on the lettering name just below the image (not on the image itself as that will open an ad) and the webcam will open in a new larger window. It may take as much as a half minute to begin but when and if it does, it can be very rewarding....it does require a Java application which, if you don't have already, will be offered as a download right then and there.....it also works better with the Firefox browser than it does with Internet Explorer.
