Details for time, location and registration will be sent to classmates and updated regularly.
If you need help, drop a note to the website administrators via Contact Us.

Why not use these CoViD19 stuck-at-home-days to visit with your ’65 friends and classmates? You can join The Chatter for ongoing conversations. Maybe tell us how the "stay at home" orders have affected you. Or post a few photos.

You can share 2020 with your classmates by updating your Profile, too.
Heck, you’re not going anywhere.

We’re all looking forward to hearing from you.




Stay Connected




The Central65 website serves as a gathering place for 1965 classmates.
Whenever there's an event like a reunion or an informal get together we'll send around a message to give you the essentials and steer you here for more information, registration or contacts.

It's also the town square for the global village our class now inhabits. A place to keep in touch. You and your classmates are spread out over 33 states and three countries (that we know of) and 83 of us are dead and gone ... that we know of. 

So here's an electronic center to celebrate successes, join a memorial or just stay connected. Don't wait until you get an In Memory announcement! Log into The Chatter for the daily conversation. Let folks hear how you're doing by updating your Profile from time to time. Watch for Profile Updates of classmates, too, where you can drop a thought or reflection. What are you waiting for?

Time isn't the main thing. It's the only thing.








Everybody's Got a Story

Now that we've determined you've lived this long, what's up? (If you received this message in error and you are really dead, please notify us so we can update our records.) 2020 has passed, but you haven't so tell us what the year 2020 was like. Special memories? Milestones? Joys? Buckets fullfilled? 

This isn't Facebook, but you do have a lot of friends. 

It's easy. Under Member Functions go to > Edit Profile. Your personal profile page will appear where you can type in Comments or add Photos. Upload from your home photo library or just drag and drop. That Now photo you still have was probably from 2010 when you made your first Classmate Profile. So show your new face.You may look even better!  Your changes will appear in The Chatter and everyone can catch up. Otherwise, you might pass each other on the Echo Canyon trail and never know it.

Everybody's got a story. What's yours?



                                                     Take A Trip Back To 1965

If you have 23 minutes to spare you'll enjoy this full color travelogue from 1965 introducing viewers to "one of the most attractive and fastest growing cities in America--the Valley of the Sun."  Did you know that summertime temperatures may top 100 degrees??  (The Chamber of Commerce must have had the final say on the content).  Thanks to classmate Mike Cohen for sharing this.

Don't worry -- Central65 will be here for another 2,000 days.

 "Please don't retire the website! I may not use it enough but its so important that we all keep up with our friends. For me I was in 6th grade when I met so many at Madison I'm 72 and I still think of everyone," wrote Diane Speros (Weaver) recently.

Thank you, Diane, for the kind thoughts. Not to worry, we're paid up with ClassCreator through April 4, 2025!

Even if we don't update it as often as we should, important functions like Classmate Profiles, What's New? The Chatter, and Message Center are all on autopilot.  They're here for you everyday. However, if you see one of the site administrators or webpage pilots In Memory, well, you may need some new volunteers to keep the pages up to date and passwords working!


In Memory

Please help us keep our In Memory page up-to-date. At this point in time, we think we're falling behind in learning of those we've lost. If you know of anyone, let us know.

It's important not only to acknowledge those who shared our high school days, In Memory also creates a page for classmates to reflect and add their thoughts and goodbyes to old friends.

Missing Bobcats

Many of our classmates have not yet been located.  This not only prevents them from keeping up to date with Class of 65 happenings (like the 50th Reunion) but it is also a lost opportunity for you keeping in touch with each other. Can you help us find someone? Please click here – Missing Bobcats – to learn how you can be a part of our search team.

 Did you know...???

We led the way when Central High School Class of 1965 started its webpage in 2010. There are now 85 High School Reunion websites in Phoenix that use ClassCreator, seven from Central High School alone: 1965, 1966, 1970, 1972, 1979, 1980, 1998!
