Post Reunion News

There are a few things I needed to spread the word about in regards to our awesome reunion.

Joe Salmond is currently working on finishing up the reunion video, however, he has yet to receive any new pictures. If you would like to send in pictures from high school, the family picnic or the reunion dinner please do so. You can upload them to this main Northridge page or you can email them to and I will get them over to Joe. If anyone has a really nice group picture of the reunion dinner, please send it to me. We are asking that all pictures be sent by next Friday the 2nd of October. At that time, Joe will finish the DVD and we will get copies made and mailed out to those that have purchased one. If you wanted a copy but havent bought one, you can still buy one on the blog for $10.

From our records, we had atleast 14 people who showed up to the reunion dinner who did not buy tickets. If you were one of those people, please contact me so we can get things squared away. We understand with the excitement and seeing everyone that this may have been overlooked, but it is important that if you attended you buy a ticket.

With that being said, we are still and will continue to accept donations to our NHS Reunion Fund. We may be starting from scratch for the next reunion which I would like to avoid. Im thinking Vegas for the next one!

We will continue to keep the blog going and make periodic posts, so check back often. If we ever plan another event or a get together that involves our class, we will post that info there.I again want to thank everyone who helped, attended and supported Amy and I in this endeavor. It was a wonderful two days to spend with old friends and make new ones. I wish you all the best.

Go Knights!

Oh What a Night!

Well, we did it! Our reunion was a huge success. I hope that everyone enjoyed the activities and events. It was two nights of reliving memories and creating new friendships. It was so good to see everyone and their families. We missed all of you who were not able to attend.

We are working on creating a slide show of all the events. If you would like to send in some of your pictures, please send them to We need a good copy of the group pictures taken last night. These pictures are DIFFERENT than the ones for the reunion video.

If you would like to send in pictures for the actual reunion video (even ones from high school) please send them to Joe Salmond. If they are from high school, they need to be scanned. Please keep in mind that Joe and his wife are welcoming a new baby today, so he may not respond right away. You can send the pictures to

The reunion videos are on sale now, you may buy them here on the blog. They are $10 until Saturday, August the 15th. After the 15th, they will go up to $15. We will continue to sell the videos until the end of August. We are hoping to have the videos finished and mailed out by the first part of September. Remember, the money goes towards future reunions. We will also continue to accept donations.

For those of you are Facebook, please join the Northridge Class of 1998 group. It will be a good way of keeping in touch throughout the upcoming years. It will also be a way to get information about any activities that the group does in the future.

Thank you to everyone who came, donated, bought raffle tickets and videos. We couldn't have done this without you!

Pictures Needed...

Okay everyone,

Joe Salmond is putting together a video with pictures and clips from our senior year for the reunion and needs your help to get it done right. Please scan any pictures you would like to see in the video and send them to him asap. If you don't have a scanner, you could check with your local photo lab (WalMart, Costco or Sam's Club for example) to see if they can scan them for you or even make you copies that you could mail to me. If they are scanned and you wish to email them to Joe please include information like who is in the picture, and when/where it was taken.

He plans on doing this in a High Definition format so the scan settings will be included below. Also if you have any tapes from events he would love to use some of that too. Please contact him if you do have a video to see what the best way would be to get it copied and delivered to him.

Scan settings:
4x6 pictures : 600dpi
5x7 pictures : 400dpi
8x10 pictures : 300dpi

If you would like to submit pictures you can do it directly to Joe by email, joesalmond at gmail dot com (spelled out to avoid spam :)

DEADLINE for pictures: June 30, 2009
