Welcome to the Rockford East High School Class Of 1964 website. This new interactive website was developed for our 50th Class Reunion, held on August 9, 2014 at the Mauh-Nah-Tee-See Country Club in Rockford. Classmates, please join our website now.
They have torn down the northern portion of the old Rockford High School. (Taken from a YouTube drone cam) For still pictures, select our Photos, then select East's Renovations, photos 88-91. For more drone cam videos, copy and use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Se2Eu5NPFI
Attention all E-Rabs: There will be a celebration on Friday, April 17, 2015, from 5PM – 9PM. We will have a chance to tour the building and see all the changes that have been made. They will have decade rooms with lots of items to be shown. Mark your calendar now and share the date with family and friends. More information will be available closer to the event.
We have just extended this website for five more years. Thanks to all of you at the reunion, for the money raised by our 50-50 raffle and that one special $100 donation from the raffle winner.
Today, November 17, 2014, the 50th Reunion DVDs have arrived in our mailboxes. We think Raines Video did a very nice job. If you have any comments, please post them on the Message Forum.

MISSING CLASSMATES: The "Missing Classmates" button in the left column shows all classmates who have not yet joined our website. The actual list of our missing or lost classmates can be found to the right by using the "Location Unknown" button near the bottom of the "Where We Live" area.
Our new interactive website asks that all of our Rockford East High School Class of 1964 classmates create their own profiles, so we may use this inexpensive way to communicate information about future class reunions. First, go to the JOIN HERE button in the right column and click. Next find your name and click it. Then create a logon ID using your email address and a password. The information you provide and save (details, profile and photos) is locked for classmates eyes only, but only after they login themselves. We are asking that you use the first name you now go by. For example: the formal name like William could be changed to Bill or Will, etc. If you notice any errors anywhere, please contact us. This new website was selected because it can do many things, like posting pictures, sending messages and communicating between classmates. Your class reunion committee is asking that if you know any of our classmates who don't yet know of this new website, that you please let them know it's: www.64rabs.net. Thanks.
