VHHS PLANS REUNION
“Team 74” is planning a 50th high school reunion in 2024. Friends and graduates of Verdugo Hills High School are invited to attend to trade stories of family, careers, adventures and anything else.
Currently Team 74 is in the planning phase of collecting names and numbers of classmates and putting together a database; emails from classmates can be received at email@example.com. Information should include a mailing address, cell number and graduate’s name at graduation (if different than now).
A list of frequently asked questions will be provided to keep everyone updated as the reunion plans move forward. Those who belong to various VHHS groups will see redundant information to ensure all classmates are notified and have an opportunity to attend.
At this time the FB VHHS groups will be the reunion information outlet until a more focused site is created.
