We are working on our own private website to provide information about the 50th reunion and updates about our classmates.  Check it out at:

Click on the “Menu” in the upper right corner, to see updates from classmates or memorials about those who have passed.

We will be using this website for people to RSVP and collect money to cover the costs for the Saturday night event at Blackhawk Country Club at the 50th reunion.

Please register now by following these four simple steps while on the webpage:

  1. Go to “Menu” in the upper right corner and select “Classmates” and click on “” It will ask you for your first and last name, an email address, and a secure Password.
  2. Once registered you will be asked for optional contact information. If you give a city location, it will show on the map on the “Where Are They Now” Please note that emails and contact information won’t be shared publicly.
  3. To help connect with your classmates, please answer the four questions about your:

  4. Finally, upload a “now” photo (headshot). After you finish registering, we will upload a “then” photo using your headshot from the West 1972 Yearbook.

Finally, here’s a graph showing our progress in finding emails for our classmates (of a total of 653 who attended West Senior High School) and who have signed up on the website:
