West Side Catholic High School of Lansing, Michigan

O'Rafferty Raiders - Class of 1965

On January 20, 1964,
Monsignor John W. O'Rafferty High School opened.

The first class to graduate after a full year at O'Rafferty
was the Class of 1965!

This is dedicated to those 133 classmates:
who they were then - who they are now.


In light of the continued issues with the Covid 19 Coronavirus, it seems best to postpone our 55th O’Rafferty Class of ‘65 Reunion till next year when things (hopefully) will be much better. Stay safe and healthy!

[Classmates: help me make this all it can be.
I have added a brief history of myself (which needs updating) (link on my yearbook photo) - how about you?
Do you have any photos from 1964-5 that you would like others to see?
I included newspaper articles that my mother saved for me.
(One advantage of being the oldest - apparently she never got it done for the other 7)]
Please email me anything you want to add to this site as we move to our 50th Reunion
or get updated email addresses of classmates.
