Tift County High School Class of 1963
This page is dedicated to the wonderful members of Tift County High School's Class of 1963. There were 139 of us that graduated in June 1963 and the great majority of us started in the first grade together and somehow graduated together. Most of our graduating class still live within 25 miles of Tifton and the great majority that do not still live in the state of Georgia. We have always been a close knit group and I hope that this page will contribute to keeping it that way. We have had a class reunion every five years since graduation and will continue to do so. We also get together two or three times a year for cookouts or party of some sort. I hope if you haven't participated in the past and you live within driving distance you will plan on attending the next one.
If you would like to sponsor one of these gatherings let us know and we can get the word out on the webpage or in an email as I am describing below. If a place is the problem that you feel that you might not be able to contact Rhonda or me and we will make the river house available. There more of these we have I think the better.
I have included a few pictures of the get-togethers that I have pictures for. One that you might like is the pictures for Mr. Johnson's grave site that you gave so generously to purchase the slab and the engraving from the class of '63. Mrs. Johnson along with her daughter attended and were very touched that the class thought that much of their husband and father. If you have digital pictures you might want to share with us please send them to me and I will get them on the web page. Also if you have old pictures of times past please make them available to be posted. I can scan them if you don't have the capability if you will get them to me. In particular some pictures of the original Annie Belle Clark Elementary, our Junior High, and the old High School on Tift Ave.
I have set up an email account firstname.lastname@example.org with all the graduates for which I have an email address, about 107 at this time. This will be a place to send an email and everyone on the list will get the same email. Be careful, everyone can see what everyone says, but I know there are only good and great things that will be put there. If you have email addresses of others that I don't have that you feel they would like to get this, get them to me and I will add them to the list. If you do not want your name to be on the list just let me know and I will remove it. I would hope this would keep us all informed about things that are of interest to all the class. Please still use individual email addresses to send your jokes and pictures that some exchange and let this be just an informal information source that all can see.
If you have suggestion that I can do to make it better let me know. If you have information or pictures that you would like to see added send them to me with an explanation of what they are.
Thanks, enjoy and get better acquainted with the classmates that we have not had an opportunity to see regularly.
