If you want to stay in better contact with your Napa-Vintage ’73 classmates, please review the steps outlined below and consider completing as many sections as apply:
1. For everyone
If you call/email/IM/bump into/whatever a classmate, please share this website/page with them.
2. If you have an email address
a. Join the class emailing list by visiting here:
When joining, if your surname has changed since high school, please help us identify you by typing your name as follows:
FirstName (1973_Name) Current_LastName
Gertrude (Miller) Rodriguez
Why a mailing list? A lot of people don’t have Facebook or Classmates accounts, so email is the best method for staying in touch with them. Also, anyone with a Classmates or Facebook account must have an email address, so in theory this one medium should cover everyone.
b. For more information on the mailing list:
3. If you have a Facebook account (a chance to chat with classmates)
a. Logon and make sure your email address on record is still valid. If you’ve since changed email addresses, you should still be able to login with your old email address so long as you know the password. If you’ve changed email addresses and don’t remember your password, follow these instructions:
b. Join the group “Napa-Vintage ’73 and friends” by following the steps outlined here:
c. [Optional, but every little bit helps] Once approved as a member, open the group page, click on ‘Add People to group’ and submit classmate names that you are Facebook friends with. [NOTE: you can only invite individuals that you are FB friends with.]
d. If you attended Vintage, you may want to join the group “Vintage High Alumni“.
e. If you went to Napa High (as most of us did), you may want to join the group “Napa High School Alumni“.
4. If you have a Classmates account
a. Logon and make sure your email address on record is still valid. If you’ve since changed email addresses, you should still be able to login with your old email address so long as you know the password. If you’ve changed email addresses and don’t remember your password, you might be out of luck, but try this:
b. Make sure you are listed as having attending Napa High or Vintage High, and include your graduation year (should be 1973 for most people reading this).
5. If you don’t have a Facebook, Classmates, or even an email account
Seriously? Not even an email address? I realize we are old, but many of our parents are using email, so you really have no excuse here. You must have Internet access or you wouldn’t be reading this. Worst case, please consider heading down to your local library and signing up for a free email account (i.e. Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.), then go back to item 2, above.
