About TCHS Alumni Association
This page contains general information about the Alumni Association.
Activities and Services
Membership is FREE and open to all former students of Temple City High School. There are two types of membership: Registrant and Subscriber. Registrants may read news, communicate with other members, post updates and keep a personal journal to share experiences with others. [Register Now]
FREE registration does not help us pay the costs of the site. Subscription to TCHS Alumni News is easy, and at $12 per year it's a bargain. You get expanded personal web space and a members-only mailbox at tchsalumni.org plus early heads-up on more goodies as the site grows, and you may participate in more features of the site. We use revenue to pay the expenses of the web site and incidental costs. Classes with at least 20 subscribed member receive certain additional services. [More Information]
Here's how we'll use your information: Only your name and class year will appear in the Directory listing. (Your real name is required; after all, no one will recognize you as CoolCat57. Your contact data will be confidential; we may use it to contact you about reunions and other alumni association business. It will NOT be distributed to third parties, nor will you receive "spam" from advertisers.
Spam and our Brothers and Sisters Around the World
We do not send spam, and we wish others would follow the same policy. Unfortunately that is not the case.
We've been bothered since 2010 by someone who sends spurious member registrations to our server, apparently in an attempt to gain some sort of benefit we cannot fathom. No harm is done, and they do not get any benefit, but they keep doing it. Sometimes you'll see their phony names in the New Member list. We delete them as we spot them, but we cannot watch the site 24/7. Based on the spelling of the phony names, we infer the attacks are coming from Russia. The poor scoundrels are more to be pitied than scorned, as that is apparently their best shot at earning a living. (Russia is, of course, famous for inventing what others have already invented. A 1950s joke said that the most successful Russian inventor was Comrade Reguspatoff. Think about it.) So, Pоссийский Γовноед, иди в жопу! (If you understand Russian and are not among the culprits, our apologies. Superior culturally aware insults are invited.) -RC
