Welcome to the Virtual Reunion

Wichita East Class of 1960 

Your 1960 classmates have contributed 450 stories and almost 2000 photos to this Virtual Reunion Website.  New stories appear almost every day. To find the stories, click on the Menu – either three parallel lines in the corner of your screen or on the titles across the top of your screen.

The Menu has six sections —

  • Community – Stories, memories, comments on our lives. December started off with great stories. Fred Elder’s trek across the north of England was so arduous and so interesting that it took two installments to recount. See Coast to Coast, First Half, and Second Half. Nancy Fulton Ingle danced the tango worldwide and did not hang up her stilettos until age 76. Doug Walton’s extraordinary paintings attracted thousands of students from the U.S. to South America, Bali, and Nepal. And don’t miss Barbara Hammond’s story about Miss Elfrieda Shellenberger, who is still alive and well and celebrating her 101st birthday on December 24. Barb tells you how to send her a card
