This is the website for the Cats (some shown here), Class of 53 at New Castle High School in Pennsylvania, the city famous for fireworks and chili dogs and growing the team that won the state 2014 Class AAAA basketball title.
Number of visitors to this site since July 29, 2004. This has just passed 40,000 and is starting over.
The Class of 1953 Reunion Committee is asking for donations for the website. Any amount is welcome.
The money is used for: 1) use of Homestead's software, which is needed to place stories and photos on the website; 2) exclusive rights for the domain name, which is www.cats53.com; and, 3) lease of space on the World Wide Web. None of the money goes to any individual. Thanking you in advance.
Checks should be made payable to Ne-Ca-Hi Class of 53, and sent to Kay Salamon, 424 Park Avenue, New Castle, PA 16101
