Have you changed your email lately?

A bounceback is because we do not have current email information for a classmate. Or the site email is not getting through to your email.  We send out updates every once in awhile with different news of events coming up, classmates passing, classmates trying to connect with you, have a birthday or Grand Forks news.  If you are not getting this info we need to check your current info to see why it is not getting to you. You can adjust your preferences of what you want to receive and how often, by going to Notify Me on the yellow menu. These are the classmates that did not receive last update.

 Terry Austin, Patty Bohnet, Shirley Storbakken Essary, Marshall Gravdahl, Mike Storey, Pam Wessel. 

Those that still have open Email, such as the ones that just retired but email is still active, will not come back as they are still open. 

If you know any of these classmates please send them a note to update so they don't miss something important.  Also make sure to put Larry Ferguson in your contacts with email  This is the address our class website is from. You can also opt out if you want to.


Be sure to check out What's New.  You can share with the class what is new with you.  Public messages you send between classmates is in there and your new pictures you have added.  You can still send private messages that will not be in this area. Just make sure you select private message.
