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. So bookmark us and come back often to see our updates.

THIS SITE HAS SEVERAL 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.

         February 10, 2015. I haven't been very active on this site in quite a while. I didn't realize just how long until I tried to sign in and couldn't remember my password. I will try and do a better job of staying current.

         It's easy to forget just how long something has been posted. Beginning today, I will date new items and leave them post for approximately 60 days before either deleting or moving to archives.

         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.

         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.

YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION - Posted Feb 12, 2015

I have removed the 50th reunion contact information. It's just too difficult
to keep current.
If you wish to have your contact information posted or to
post current information about yourself or your family I will date and post
in the section called Classmates Pages.

FRENCH HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1963 MEMORIAL PAGE

Updated Feb 2015


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.











CLASSMATE PAGES

As I obtain classmate information or pictures I will build a page for that classmate. Please feel free to have information added or removed from this section.

I have borrowed much of this information from facebook or from information submitted to this and other sites. I can be contacted at ronnyeller@yaho.com

We didn't live in a vacuum during our years at French High School. We had contact with classmates from the classes of '61, '62, '64 and '65. Whenever I get information about these classmates I will post it in this section. Trying to get organized can be soooo much fun !

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.

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.

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
