Welcome to the Website for the
Fair Lawn High School Class of 1961
Reflect, Rejoice, Renew
This website is dedicated to our classmates for the purpose of promoting, celebrating and reconnecting with all members of the Fair Lawn High School Class of 1961.
Here you will find how to register for our 55th Reunion Weekend (see below and left column), photos from our 50th Reunion Weekend (left column), plenty of memories, and a great way for you to see what's become of everyone. This is our Class of '61 website, so come back often and update your information as it changes. Your participation is essential for it to succeed. The more you participate, the better it will be. Be sure to check the Announcements (below) for any "breaking" news and to read the Classmate Message Forums (left column) to see what our classmates are saying.
Members of the class of '61, if you haven't already done so, please register and fill in your profile. (You can update it at any time later as well.) Look at the FAQ/Help for Users in the left menu column for details (see question #1) and for help navigating the site. If you are having any problems or want something changed or added, please let us know through the Contact Us link. This is your web site.
To see which classmates have added photos to their profiles, go to "Classmate Profiles" and click on the link for "Profile contains photos." Also be sure to keep checking back to see new photos added to the "Photo Albums" (left menu column). The dates under the albums are when the most recent photo was added to that album. (Unfortunately we have no way, yet, to indicate which photos were added when.)

Register Now for Our 55th Reunion
Registration is open for our 55th Reunion Weekend -- October 28-30, 2016. The main event is a Saturday buffet dinner and dancing to a DJ ("Supersonic Entertainment") at Sereno in Fair Lawn (in the Athletic Club building, behind the parking lot and across from the police station). Festivities start at 6:00 pm. The price of $50/person includes the buffet dinner and wine or beer. Mixed drinks can be purchased at the bar. Please register, using the Reunion link in the left column, before October 1st.
As in the past, there will be a Friday evening get-together at the Marriot Bar (Saddle Brook) starting at 7 pm. If for some reason you cannot come Saturday evening, you are still welcome to mingle with classmates at the bar, where you can purchase drinks and bar food.
We are also arranging a Saturday Lunch at Johnnie and Hanges starting at 12 noon. Again, you do not have to register for the Saturday evening dinner to get together with classmates for lunch.
Sunday morning, for those who can make it, there will be an "impromptu" Sunday Brunch at the Marriott starting at 9:00 am. Reservations are not necessary (although we'd like to know in advance if you're planning on joining us) -- we'll just show up and surprise them! Or, feel free to make your own arrangements with friends.
To see who has already registered: click on Classmate Profiles (left column) and then click on the link “Attending 55th Reunion Dinner …”.
We sadly announce the tragic death of
Barbara Grundler Tempe
on June 1, 2016.

We need photos!
Please send us photos for uploading to our albums. You can either email them as attachments or upload them to your profile (and we will place them into albums). We'd like as many photos as possible of our classmates during the years.
Also, there are several photos in the albums (especially the early years) that have classmates not yet identified. If you can identify any of them, please let us know. Those who did not graduate with us should still be identified.
New photos are being added regularly. be sure to keep checking back to see new photos added to the "Photo Albums" (left menu column). The dates under the albums are when the most recent photo was added to that album. Unfortunately we have no way (yet) to indicate which photos were added when.
Special thanks to Chris Stohldrier for scanning the entire Yearbook! The individual photos are on each classmate's Profile page. The entire Yearbook will be online in the future. Other contributors of old (and recent) photos: Mary Clare Allen Swartz, Sheila Brand Stout, Bill Camp, Rita Ensign Zatkow Kilmnick, Paula Ferris Einaudi, Chris Freitag, Ellen Rosefield Goodman, Elaine Kirsh, Jerry Liebowitz, Marion Sugden Lill, Betty Nehaz Botel, Ian Newman, Anne O'Neill Horst, Beverly Phillips Madwatkins, Roni Seibel Liebowitz, Irene Stoddard Dietz, and Ron Thompson.
