Reunion and Historical Site!


We welcome all fellow classmates to this site. Many former classmates were only with us for a short time. All are welcome to join our group and share memories of friends, teachers and Tempe High. Our motto "Once a Buffalo, Always a Buffalo." The herd welcomes you and is eager to see you in our future reunions and get togethers.

Joining is easy, locate your name in the "Classmate Profiles," sign in, tell us about yourself, include a photo or two, and then check out the site.

The Spring Coffee & Conversation meeting of the Tempe Union High School Class of 1961 (and friends of all) will be held Thursday, April 31, 2022. 

The location, same as previous meetings, will be held at the Panera Bread, 1825 East Guadalupe Road, Tempe, 85283. Meeting will be formally called to order at 9:00 AM but come early and stay late.

I will be bringing a few remaining "ReunionCups" to sell at $8.00 each. Also, a 60 year reunion sweatshirt, size Large at $38.00.  To reserve a cup or the sweatshirt, send me an email or call 714.865.6227 and I'll put your name on it and bring it with me in March.

Hopefully, the weather will be beautiful!

See you all at the Panera, rain or shine.

P.S. We usually "pass the hat" for tips for the Panera Bread staff that puts up with us.

regards, Dan Clark
