HOWDY !!

         I'm Ronny Eller, a member of the French High School, Class of '63.   On behalf of our class I welcome you to visit this site as often as you wish.    The site is dedicated to and belongs to all the members of our class. I am but the caretaker.    So bookmark us and come back often to see our updates.

THIS SITE HAS MANY GOALS.

         Primarily - It's a place specifically for members of the 1963 French High School class to visit and perhaps enjoy a few memories.

         Secondary - We didn't live in a vacuum back in the '60's. We had friends in other grades and other schools. Hopefully they will feel comfortable visiting with us and perhaps sharing some of their life experiences. When ever possible I hope to incorporate some of these in this site as well.

         Thirdly - Beaumont continues to go through changes. Some good and some not so good. For those of you who don't get to visit here very often an attempt is being made to show the changes as well as some of the old landmarks. Afraid some landmarks were gone before this site was established.

         Hey Classmates ! ! !   I know you look almost exactly the same as when you graduated way back in 1963. Unfortunately I don't and I have to be honest a couple of our other classmates have changed a bit as well. In an attempt to prevent us from being a room full of strangers at our next class reunion I add more current pictures whenever possible. Some classmates are helpful and send me up-dates. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate that. In other instances I have borrow from places like facebook.

         Isn't it great that this site has helped several of our classmates reconnect with each other. Who would have thought we would have gone in so many different directions. Hopefully, as word of this site spreads, more of these reconnections will happen.

         Why not let me know what you have been doing over the years and perhaps share a picture of yourself and your families. Your life is important to all of us so why not take a moment or two and update us on those things you feel comfortable with sharing. We don't see each other enough and sadly some of you we haven't seen since graduating and that's too long.

         I can be contacted at ronnyeller@yahoo.com or on facebook under the alias Ronny Eller. You can also call me at (409) 833-3896 - However due to Telemarketers I let my answering machine take all calls. Simple leave me a message with your phone number and I will call you back later. I can't begin to tell you how much I don't like Telemarketers.

         I can be contacted by e-mail at ronnyeller@yahoo.com

         Last thing - PLEASE Sign the Guest Book and let others know you were here.

FRENCH HIGH SCHOOL Class of 1963 MEMORIAL PAGE

I was told when I first began thinking about doing a class web site
that the most difficult part would be the Memorial Page. I have found that to be true. I
think it's important to pause for a few moments and reflect on friends who have passed
away. Sadly, it's a list that continues to grow.

BEAUMONT LANDMARKS

THIS IS A MUST SEE ! ! !   C. Meyers Jr. has recently completed his
Beaumont Landmark Project There are 174 pictures of landmarks. So many
of our landmark buildings were gone before he started but, he's done a great
job capturing those that are still standing.

You'll find loads of pages at this link with lots of pictures. Many are of events

DO YOU REMBER 1962 ? ? ?

This is just a bit of Trivia about 1962. I've tried to make it localized to things that actually affected us.

ANNUAL PICTURES

I have heard from a number of classmates who either never had or don't
currently have access to their annuals. It was suggested that adding
some of those pictures would be something classmates would like
to see again.

RON'S RATTLING

This is a section I have moved from the main page to a different location. I use this section
for a number of different things, one of which is to express my opinion on things. But, there
is a lot more to it than just that.

PICTURES FROM AROUND TOWN

Some of these pictures are by request. If there is someplace not pictured
that you would like to see please let me know. If it's possible I'll get
it for you.

He Will Be

Just click play and sit back and enjoy.This was sent to me by a classmate
who asked we put it on the site. It is not ours, so if you click the "home"
at the end it will take you someplace else. Just use your own back
space at the top of your screen.

FHS Class of 1966

The FHS Class of 1966 has a fabulous web site. I admire and envy their skill.
Personally I enjoyed seeing and learning about younger brothers and sisters of
some of our classmates; or that kid a few houses down.

Take time to look through Randy Welborn's web site and the neat pictures
of places we all remember. But more than that, learn about the pictures and
