Atlantic City High School's Class of 1958 Website - Part 3

Our Class is back together again!


2011 PICS - 1st half


This page features pics received during the 1st half of 2011--- but not necessarily taken during that period.  Once again the newest pics will usually appear at the top of this page.   Our Class of '58 Website (actually 3 websites) has now been running since September of 2003 and holds over 1900 pictures.   We have a class that wanted to get back together --- and we did!   Most classes have reunions every 5 or 10 years.   But we also have had Countdown Weekends (off-year reunions) --- classmate dinner parties --- mini-reunions in different parts of the country --- our own website --- and periodic updates of news items of interest to our class. What a class!
