GOLF EVENT CANCELED or maybe it isn't?
Due to a lack of expressed interest there will be no golf event. This
relieves John DeCoster a lot, since he was worried about his game.
Note: "Although we didn't get enough interest in this to set up a special outing Joe Wetter says give him a call at 805-987-8236 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are still getting a couple of guys together to play. He and Jim Lentini may still be able to set something up for a small foursome or two Friday morning".

BRING YOUR CAMERAS!
Plan on taking lots and lots of photographs (and, videos if you wish). The NDHS blog needs individual pictures of all of our classmates for our archives. Take pictures of the school, the vintage cars, places you lived in the Valley.
Send copies of your photographs by email or traditional snapshots. If you save your photos on a computer, please send them to Jerry Fecht at:
Use jpg or gif format
YOUR BLOG WILL CONTINUE!
We have taken on the heroic goal of documenting the lives and adventures all of our classmates, living or deceased. Pictures from our historic 50th Reunion will be posted to the blog.
SHARE YOUR NDHS AND SAN FERNANDO VALLEY MEMORABILIA
Our 50th Reunion is a great time for you to bring memorabilia that you would like to share with our High School and/or The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. Artifacts from other Valley schools are also desirable.
