To share infromation that is meaningful and post coming events. Our next goal is to make this site a scrapbook of memories for all club members and their families.

All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this web site,, is a locally-owned business. They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.

Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by club members. Each club member has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow club members by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Finding your club web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed on to the site and restricted your profile to only fellow club members, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non members.


Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each club member's profile page (just look under the member's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact members without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address, and a password.

To set up your profile: locate the "Members Profiles" link and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Wind & Fire was founded in 1991, so enter the YEAR THAT YOU JOINED as your 'Class Year' (this site was formed to for a schools classes by their graduation year to remain in contact).

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow club members. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other club members without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Members will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

If your name is not already on the site, but you are part of the Wind & Fire MC , contact us and your name will be added.

Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your club members are up to!


Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password".

If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, contact Terry 'Skipper' Porter. This could take a while, please be patient.

Admin cannot see your password, but a new password will be created to allow you access (it will be emailed to you), with the 'new password', sign in and then change the password to one you select.

The wonderful part about this site is that it came pre-setup by Class Creator. We just have to enter names.

The site assembles a missing list for us, based solely on the names of people who don't have profiles; so until you have a profile, the site will consider you "Missing".

Also, please note: We need your help to contact EVERY club member. If you have information about any member, listed or not listed, please contact Terry 'Skipper' Porter.

Or send members you know the link:

To contact a fellow club member, you may simply use the 'private message' email option at the top left of each Member's Profile page (located under Master Photo).

This feature will allow open communication between Members, while protecting your personal information.

If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.

Adding pictures is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people again. We've had reports of club members who were routinely running into each other without knowing it, because...well....we've all changed a little over the years or being able to put a face with a name.

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Roll your cursor over the 'Master Photo', 'Then', 'Now', or 'Joining' photo silhouette (note you cannot upload a 'Joining' photo if one has already been provided by Admin).
