Welcome Home Classmates

After all these years, it is great to have you visit this site. This special place on the World wide Web was created by your fellow classmates for all of us, proud sons and daugthers of Cranston high School East. You are encouraged to participate in the future growth of this site by sharing your memories and other items such as photos of our life in school. There is always a need for web editors and research. This site is maintained by Mr. Bruce Pitts however the participation of other class members is critical to keep this a vibrant yet powerful site that tells the story of our fraternal family.

Classmates Donald and Kevin Made The Ultimate Sacrifice For Us

We are forever grateful and will never forget. Rest in Peace Marines.

We the undersigned offer the Veterans of our Class of 1968 who served honorably in the service to our country and our two beloved U.S. Marines who sacrificed their lives for our country, our eternal debt of gratitude. We also take this moment to remember and honor all U.S. Veterans of all wars for their commitment to service and our country. It is easy to take these acts of bravery for granted, but on this day of days, we put aside a time to remember our Veterans of all wars. For our classmates and veterans, they are the very best of our generation.

About us

This site was first created on September 20, 2010 and officially launched on January 10, 2011. It developed over the past few years to become a place for our class to tell it's story. Although it grew from the vision of one class member, the site as it is today is the result of the effort of many of our classmates. It is here we can keep up to date on class reunions but above all remember our classmates who have traveled far from home. And with those fond memories of our early life, we cherish those memories of our classmates and friends who are now departed. Especially painfull is the loss of two of our family as victims of war.

I am honored to have been the caretaker of this special place and hand over the mantle to a new owner, my classmate and friend Bruce Pitts. September 16, 2020 marks the dawn of a new day for our web site.

I am honored to have had this chance to honor my friends and classmates. I hope I have done an acceptable job during my stewardship. I am forever humbled by the experience.
