"That Same Song", The Beach Boys, 1976




Welcome to the Fountain Valley High School Class of 1974 website, www.fountainvalley74.com!


CONNECT: Exchange ideas, perspectives and information with classmates.


REMEMBER: Share memories of experiences and classmates since business school and continuing into the future.


JOIN OUR COMMUNITY. We invite you to contribute your photos and videos. We welcome frequent personal updates. They can be meaningful, inspiring, irreverent, funny, sobering, or professional.


The inspiration for this website? Like many  classmates, we’ve found ourselves wishing for a convenient, on-going way to:

  • Catch up with classmates more frequently than once every 5 years at a reunion.
  • Exchange information and ideas using a rich, flexible, platform; including live chat, private messages, video, and more!


This website complements (and does not replace) how we communicate now. We think that there’s no better time to enjoy this website than now, while every one of us is grappling with the uncertainty and impact of the pandemic.


This website is for all of us by all of us.  Answers to many questions and additional good information can be found at: First Time Visitors


Interested? Join other classmates in meeting up again and again at www.fountainvalley74.com.





Congratulations and Thank You!!

10,000 Homepage Views of our FVHS '74 Website!

This morning we logged the 10,000th view of our homepage!  This is a remarkable milestone to achieve within one year of the start of this website!  Thank you!  Lauren Smythe Ritchie put us over the top.

Our 45 year reunion last October was a great party.  But many people were not able to attend because of geography, other priorities, etc.  Our website provides a "virtual reunion" which continues.  Thanks to all of you for keeping it interesting by sharing your stories, photos, and updating your profiles!

We are always open to suggestions, or questions, that could help us to improve this site and your experience with it.  Please use the "Contact Us" button (look left and up) to send an email with your comments, questions, or suggestions.

Toujours Avec Fierte,

New Year’s Resolutions

Here are some resolutions for 2020.  You can do this!  These will make for a great new year for our class!

  •  Add to your profile.  Answer more of the questions that come up when you go to your profile and click on “Edit Profile”. 
  • Upload a photo or two.  You have some nice ones on your phone right now.  If you aren’t sure how to upload, send them by email to 45threunion@fountainvalley74.com and they will be posted for you.
  • Reach out to a friend from our class and wish them a “Happy New Year”.  Encourage them to join the website if they haven’t already.
  • Upload a photo to your Jr. High or elementary school page.
  • Contact someone from your junior high or elementary school and plan a 50 year reunion.  Pick a date and place to meet for coffee or a meal (it doesn’t have to be in Southern California).  Any two people from your class can meet and call it a “reunion”.
  • Make a donation to the FVHS ’74 Reunion Fund.  We have on-going expenses for the website.  Also funds are needed for memorial service flowers, deposits for the 50th reunion, and a class gift to FVHS.





In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you whitelist the email address noreply@classcreator.net (that's a .net, not a .com).

What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address noreply@classcreator.net.

Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address noreply@classcreator.net when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting noreply@classcreator.net is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving your emails from your fellow Classmates.

Stop and take a moment to whitelist noreply@classcreator.net right now, and ensure you stay connected!
