How to Get Started

If this is your first visit here, this is how to get started:

You may wish to print this page before you begin.  Do so by choosing "File" from the top menu bar of your Internet connection.  A drop-down list will appear; click on "Print." 

A.  Click on "Classmates List" at the left.

B.  Scroll down the list and click on your name.  You will go to a page that says "Join Here."   Then "Click here now."  Follow the onscreen prompts to create your profile.  It will take you through several steps.  (You do not have to finish it all at once.  You can always come back whenever you want to add or update your information.)

Note:  If your name is not on the list, please let us know at and we will add your name, so that you can return to the site and get registered.    WE WELCOME ANYONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN OUR CLASSMATE, EVEN IF YOU DID NOT GRADUATE FROM NEWPORT IN 1963!  We also welcome friends from classes ahead or behind us, who may register as guests.


Step 1:  Enter your personal information, email address and choose a password that is at least 5 characters long.

When you finish each step, be sure to scroll down to the bottom and click to move ahead to the next page.


Step 2:  Profile Details:  Enter information as you wish to here.  (Note, in the future we will change some of the questions to something more relevant to our class, when time permits.  Please keep in mind that this site is still in the early stage!) 

Important:  Please be sure to check the box at the bottom of the Step 2 page, "Allow us to send you a one-time email to verify your email address."  If this box is not checked, then you will not be fully registered on this site!


Step 3:  Photos:  You may upload photos from your own computer onto your individual page here.  It's easy to do, but for now, I suggest you just proceed on to the next step, and then you can come back and upload photos of your choosing at a later time.


Step 4:  Notify Me & Track Classmate Profiles:  You can just leave this as is for now, or feel free to make any changes you would like to make.  You can always make more changes as you wish to later.


Step 5:  Privacy:  Standard computer privacy stuff.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page & select "I have read & agree to the Privacy Policy."  Then click on "take me to my profile."

PRIVACY NOTE:  All contact information you enter into your profile will be kept confidential. It will not be shared or distributed. Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by classmates unless you grant permission on your profile. When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address is not viewable, though someone can send you an email by using the contact box on your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so they can respond.


You are almost done, and in a few minutes you should receive a message from the website saying that you are successfully registered with this site. 


In the future, emails to the class of 1963 will be sent to you from the website.  This includes notifications of breakfasts and other items of interest.

In order to continue receiving informational emails from the class, the newest internet spam rules now require members to “double opt in.”  The first “opt in” is when you join.

AFTER JOINING IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CLICK ON THE EMAIL VERIFICATION REQUEST that you receive!  This will return an email from you to this website, which verifies that the email address you entered is a correct and working address.  This is a one-time-only need.


Please feel free to explore all the various features on the website.  You cannot hurt anything.  More things are being added to the website nearly every day--so please check back often.  We want to make this website into a community for all of us to use for communicating with each other.

So--This is YOUR site!  Therefore, any suggestions from you are needed, wanted and most welcome.  You may easily contact me by choosing Contact Us from the list at the left, which gives you the opportunity to send me an email.  I'm trying to learn how all of this works, but I will answer all questions in the order in which they are received.

If you have any questions, please email us at
