The hunt is on for members of Tahoma High School’s class of 1998, whose 10-year reunion is scheduled for this summer.

The reunion committee is asking all class members to register their name, address and e-mail information at tahomabears98@yahoo.com for the reunion to be held July 19 at 7 p.m. at Snoqualmie Pass. A spokeswoman said the committee also wants members to contact classmates and help “spread the word.”
