~ I was born in this town but left many years ago and
would really appreciate either a guest book with e-mail addresses
or an alumni page.

~ I graduated from Grand Rapids H. S.
 and would love to hear from old friends.

We have created this page for Grand Rapids High School, 
 Otsego High School Alumni and past Grand Rapids Residents 
to submit their names & e-mail addresses for 
keeping up with past acquaintances. 

We are encouraging current residents 
to add their names also!
