  '70 grads: Swallow your pride, clear your schedule and reunite for the 45th Reunion!

There are a surprising number of sixty-somethings who insist on missing this incredible chance to face - and laugh at - the past.

The updated list of excuses for avoiding the reunion, Class of 1970 edition:

1. I am not rich yet, or, my job is not high-powered enough...When will you be successful enough to face everyone…in 2020, at our 50th reunion? Please don't wait that long, life is too short to miss a chance to connect.

2. (Please fill in your personal disappointment here) Me, I'm overweight, underpaid, overworked, have a new obsession with designing websites etc. ...You have been doing something during these past 40 years. Come and tell everyone about it.

3. I'm too fat/going bald/have an embarrassing skin condition...You aren't alone. Not a good excuse. Pull on your Spandex, comb your hair over, slather on the cocoa butter, and forget about it for the night.  We promise, we will have the lights dimmed!!!!

4. I hated everyone from high school...Everyone? Not one single person you can remember with fondness? Check your e-mail contacts list, I bet there is at least one faithful high school pal there. Message them and see if they are going. Ask if they would like to see you there.

5. Everyone from high school hated me. Or, I haven't been in touch in 40 years, so if they didn't hate me then, they hate me now...And ignoring this problem will make it go away? Time to make amends. Show up at your reunion, make peace, and enjoy a special bonus - you won't spend the next 25 years being hated. Besides, who cares??  We are ALL adults, well some of us.  :)

6. I can't remember anyone's name...That's why God invented name tags and a CASH BAR

7. I'm afraid to see the one who broke my heart/whose heart I broke. Or, I'm afraid I won't see them...Suck it up, they probably don't remember you anyway, or they fit into one of the categories above!

8. I don't want my spouse to know what a loser I was in high school....They already know. They love you anyway.

9. I hate '70s music. I refuse to go anywhere where I might be trapped in a room listening to the New Colony 6...We didn't hire a sadistic DJ, he is actually nice and helpful and we can make requests! 

10. I can't go because I (or someone very close to me) is having a baby, living more than 3,000 miles away...Okay, in those very special cases, you get a free get-out-of-reunion card, and we wish you well. 

We do need help with expenses to maintain our website and have money available if someone needs help with a reunion ticket.  Let us know if we can help, we will do our best to help out. 

  • So, if you have a business and want to donate something, please let us know!! 
  • If you don’t have a business, but want to donate something, please let us know!!
  • If you want to simply donate cash to the class fund, please check out the donate button located way, way down on the right side of the website, or let us know and we’ll give you an address.
  • To tell us about donations, or for requests for information, contact us at info@aahs1970.com.

Looking for a 1970 Yearbook?

In the past, we've had requests for 1970 yearbooks.  We just found a section of the alumni website that sells these when they are available.  The AAHS Alumni Association maintains an inventory of vintage yearbooks. Vintage yearbooks are $40, and proceeds will be earmarked for the Alumni Scholarship Fund.

Please make checks payable to AAHS Alumni Association and mail to 1415 6th Avenue, Altoona, PA 16602

A new "What's New" page has been added to our web site. The What's New page aggregates new data from around the web site and displays it on one convenient page.

The What's New page contains 3 sections:

  1. Recent Classmate Messages: 

    Anyone can enter a message at the top of the What's New page for all classmates to see. It's a great way to post a greeting to all classmates. Try attaching a photo or video! Note this box is a replication of the "Share a Message with Classmates" box at the top of your Classmate Profile page. Both of these boxes are one in the same and do the same thing. i.e. enter a message directly from the What's new page, and the message will also appear at the top of your Profile. Enter a message from the top of your Profile, and the message will also appear at the top of the What's New page. Both locations are a convenient way to share a message with your classmates.
