The conversion of the site from a FrontPage system to a WordPress system was completed and released.

River Ridge Farm and OCHS Class of ’63 remain as separate websites. However, several changes were made during the conversion: a Site Map was added to the top level “Gateway” menu; Help and Search were moved to the top level; an interactive map was added to the Gateway home page to show the main locations in the vicinity of Oil City; all pages have a footer with copyright, webmaster’s name, and WordPress design identification; and a site icon was added.
