East Longmeadow High School
Class of 1964
Welcome to the ELHS Class of ’64
The goal of this website, which was created November 23, 2010, is to give classmates from the ELHS Class of 1964 an opportunity to reconnect. The site offers the same opportunity to relatives, friends, alumni from other classes, teachers, and principals, who can join the site as guest members.
We would like to know where you’ve been, what you’ve been doing, and where you are now, and we hope that you will use this opportunity to reconnect with your high school friends.
All of the classmates’ names have been entered into the website list, found at Classmate Profiles in the menu to the left.
