Welcome to the RA Long High School Class of 1963 website. Hello to all of our fellow classmates, their children, grandchildren, friends and relatives, and anyone else who is interested in this "time capsule" of the Class of 63.

Breaking News! Our 55-Year Reunion!
Our 55-year class reunion is scheduled for August 17th 2018 at the Kelso Red Lion. The festivities will begin at 4 PM with a no-host cocktail bar, followed by a buffet dinner starting at 6 PM.
On Saturday we will have an informal get-together at Longview's Shamrock Tavern on 15th Avenue.
Due to the extreme generosity of one of our classmates -- an anonymous donor -- the cost (normally $44) will be only $20 per person for Friday night. Thank you, whoever that anonymous person is...

And please, feel free to send me anything that you think the rest of our class would be interested in. I'd especially like to create a page devoted to snapshots from "back in the day" -- if you can scan them and them to me, great. If you can't or don't want to scan them yourself, you can always send them to me by "snail mail" and I will scan them and get them back to you -- just send me that email and I'll give you my mailing address.

NOTE: This website is very much a work in progress. Your comments, suggestions, additions and -- especially -- corrections will be greatly appreciated.
Send me an with your comments etc. -- or just to say "hello".
