I am working on a fix with both Buckeye and Class Creator to get the email and other notifications running properly.  Right now each is pointing to the other as the problem- typical!  I'll keep you posted on progress.  In the meantime let me know if anyone is getting notifications via other email addresses like, etc.  Thanks for your patience fellow Spartans....

So sad that Jerry passed away. Always hard seeing a classmate depart. RIP Jerry.

To all those classmates who have moved South and no longer experience Northwest Ohio, here is what you are missing. That's a yard stick at 16 inches.

Thanks Jan!

We don't get any of the white stuff here in Paradise either! Sometimes up on top of the volcano on the Big Island and Maui but of course that entails a plane ride and a car rental to drive to the sumitt. Looking at photos is just fine for this old Spartan!

Please send more photos classmates!!

Manuel Chambers

Wow! I don't miss any of that ugly white stuff. Pat I don't have any Mountain to go look at it. I'm fine with that. To all my classmates up North don't overdo it. Shoveling snow at our age is serious work. It will melt by May.

Karen Narewski (Warlick)

I remember those blizzards. Saw some pics from family up there the past couple days. Haven't had snow down here for a few years. Enjoy the occasional 'dusting' even if it only lasts a day. Stay safe my northern Spartans.

SNOW - can't say that I miss it!  27 years and counting since we left Michigan.  Went golfing today.  New saying, " A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day shoveling snow."

Be careful with the cold weather people!  Cold kills.  And God bless you all!

Jim - I hear you. I've been in Phoenix helping my niece's pre-schooler with his virtual learning since August 1st. I don't miss the Ohio winter weather at all! You live in a great area- been there many times. My sister and brother-in-law live in Ft. Lauderdale. Keep enjoying!

It looks as though the notifications are coming through better from our Class Creator website.  If anyone has any concerns or issues please let me know via email. 

 Hopefully, we all can get our vaccinations completed soon and maybe start getting together more.   In the meantime keep in touch via our message forum. Best to all Spartans!

Nancy Wolff (Szymanski)

Hi Joe & Chip - I'm still not receiving notifications either - you're not alone.  For anyone who's birthday I've missed, I wished blessings of good health & happiness.

Walter "Chip" Carstensen

Glad that you checked on the "Notify Me". Menu selection, Nancy.  It gives you the chance to customize who and what you want to be notified about, right down to the classmate level. Hopefully others will check this capability out.  It may correct some of the issues people are having.

Marcia Kelso (Wilkinson)

I get the message forum page that tells who is posting, and when I click on "more" it takes me back to the home page and then I have to click into the message forum again in order to read the post(s).  This just started happening a couple of weeks ago, but it's never happened before and I'd really like to just stay of the message forum page - like before.  Thanks.

No notification of "Forum" messages on the 26th

Diane Paren (Marchand)

I am getting the same result as Marcia. I am getting messages, but clicking on "More" takes me to the Home Page, which didn't happen before. 
Hope you all are staying well and getting your shots. I think Arizona was behind Ohio in getting vaccines. My second shot is scheduled for March 12.  Looking forward to a rosier 2021!

Same as Marcia and Diane. That's new, not as user friendly. Hope all is well with all of you Spartans! Miss seeing everyone @ Fundangos. Stay safe ya'll. Things are getting better.
