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.
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.
This is a temporary statement of your association's business plan. A fuller exposition of our hopes will be forthcoming if and when we develop funding to achieve its objectives.
Member Communication: It is our hope to improve continuously those features of the site that help members and classmates communicate both individually and as groups.
Scholarship Support: It is our hope that we might be able to build an endowment that would support scholarships for post-secondary education for both recent graduates, lifetime learners, and eventually the descendants of former alumni. Ideas for creating and funding such opportunities are earnestly sought and welcomed.
Revenue will come from Subscriptions, Fees and Advertising. Both annual and lifetime subscriptions will be offered, starting at a token $1 per month. Fees will be charged for reunion support and other labor intensive activities of the staff including development of group emails and other management services for special events. Advertising may be offered to businesses (a) in Temple City; (b) belonging to or employing enrolled alumni; (c) otherwise supporting the objectives of the association.
The association receives no support from any institution, including Temple City High School and the Temple City Unified School District.
Current expenses include website registration and technical support; collection and editing of news and images; support of affinity groups (e.g., classes, clubs...) within the association; and other activities; Internet access and other telecommunications; taxes, licenses, legal and accounting fees..
Long term expenses might include development of an endowment for the support of the site during editorial transitions and annual legal registrations.
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

My second novel, PARALLELOGRAPH, is part historical literature, part romance, and part sci-fi adventure. It tells the story of how far a courageous young woman might go, against incredible odds, to save the life of someone she loves.
