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.

It's been a long time since we all graduated from RA Long, but on this website you'll find some things that may recall those so-called "carefree" and "happy" high school days...

NEW! We now have a Facebook Group for our class. See it at RA Long Class of 63 on Facebook.


In many ways, it's kind of hard to believe that it has been SIXTY YEARS since we graduated from high school. But since it has, that means it's time for another reunion!

The where and when:

September 16 2023 starting at 6 PM
Shamrock Bar and Grill
1131 15th Avenue
Longview, WA

Cost to you is just your beverages. Our extremely generous classmate, Pat Harris Rodman, will be picking up the establishment fee AND the cost of food! Please make sure you let her know how much we appreciate her generosity.
The reunion committee has talked about doing something the next day, but at this point nothing concrete...
DRESS CODE for the event: Very casual, jeans, shorts etc. Some said they wanted to dress up and they are certainly free to do so.

Please RSVP to Connie Burkhardt Wika by to let her know you will be attending and how many in your party.

To see everything available here, go to the Table of Contents/Index page.

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".

It has come to my attention that the @ralong63.com email addresses stopped working back in the middle of last year. I had lost control of my server when I transferred it to someone else and when that happened the email addresses that were hosted on it were disabled. If you tried to contact me at dennis@ralong63.com and I did not get back to you, this is likely the reason. Try me again.
