I would like to thank Carrie Westfall Pierce, Site Administrator for the HHS Class of 1964 for the inspiration for our new site.  On Sept 30th when we lost access to after using it for 13 years, the class of 1959 lost all of our information.  I did not know of any other HHS Class websites until Carrie received the MVP Award at the Alumni Mixer on Oct 4th.  Since 1964 was my youngest brothers class I ask him about it and he showed me the site.  After viewing the source code of their site and finding out that it was created using ClassCreator I had our Class website up and online on Oct 10, 2014, with our first classmate joining on October 20, 2014.  It is still a work in progress.
