FINALLY! I don't know what it is about Riverview that presents such a problem for me. The first time I launched the topic, it took me at least 2 years to finish. I think this time it's longer; but, then, the presentation itself is longer. Still, its creation is taking a lot longer than it should.

Anyway, 2 more pages are ready for your viewing: "Food, Games, Side Show, & Freak Show" and "Special Events." Just click on the last entry -- Riverview -- in the list on the left of this page and choose what you'd like from the flyout menu.



We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

 So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.


Please register and choose a password so you can explore the complete site we have created. It's filled with classmates' memories, pictures, updates, information on the Fifties, and more.

So, welcome to the World of Fenger - June 1958!
