Hi Everyone, 

Looking forward to seeing those who will be at the DoubleTree on Friday night. They have reserved the Baccus bar area for us. 

If you enter the hotel through the main doors by reception go to the right toward the restaurant and you will see the bar area. 

The hotel said they will have the event and location on the reader board in the lobby. 

Looking forward to seeing you, if you have questions or need help call me: 415-871-8772.

Eileen M,

I don't get it? Paris vs Rohnert Park; and you chose Paris? I'll never understand you Babay-Boomers!

Have an awesome time in Paris! It would have been great to see you and your tambourine! Had I the chance to go to Paris this weekend, I'd be like..."What reunion!" Thanks for the note and God bless you!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to thank the reunion committee for putting together such a great party Sat. night. We enjoyed ourselves and got to see some old friends that I haven't seen since the 20th.

Thanks everyone in the reunion committee! It was such a well planned, nice party !! A special thank you to Mark Endicott who made sure I went !  I had been planning a trip, but he bought my ticket to make sure I was going, and I'm glad I did. I wish I circulated more and got to visit with more people. It's so nice to see everyone !!!

To all the Committee members who were on the 50th class reunion event. A BIG heartfelt THANK YOU for all your organization and time you spent to make the evening so memorable.  To all our classmates whom all attended and were  their to welcome all of us with open arms.  What a wonderful group of people you are, so filled with the joys and happiness of life.  To the classmates whom were not there, you surely were missed. This was a beautiful and memorable evening filled with many wonderful conversations, laughter and smiles. Thanks to you all.

Peace and Love,  Louise

Thank you to the committee and all their efforts to make this special event possible.  I hadn't been to a reunion since the 20th and it was wonderful to see so many faces from childhood through high school.  Looking at the names who have already posted - I realize that I didn't get around to see everyone and I'm sorry to have missed out.  Oh well - I'll see you at the 60th - Yikes!

Class of 68...  Great to see all of you on Saturday evening.  I have a favor to ask..  I'm looking for anyone that has a photo of the kindergarten class from 1954-55 from either Las Gallinas elementary or Santa Venitia elementary ( I believe it was the school across from the Jewish Community Center ).  A few reunions back Ken Dukes had told me that a young lady that went to kindergarten with he and I was bringing the photo.  Well, unfortunately Ken passed away just prior to the reunion.  So, any help is greatly appreciated.  Dave

Gallinas School did not open until 1960 for the 2nd semester. I was in the first 4th grade there.I think you are talking about Santa Venetia School which was K-8 through the 1958-59 school year. I went to 2nd and 3rd grade at Santa Veneta. I told you that Maryellen Goepp might have been in your K class. Did you find her? Maybe Dave Raffi,  Laure Mandin or Bob Kirby too. Good luck finding the picture Dave! Blair

I found my kindergarten  class picture but it looks like I went to Hartzell.   I’m sure someone has the picture stashed somewhere in a box in their garage.  Good luck.

A belated but heartfelt THANK YOU to all the hard-working members of the reunion committee.  You did a wonderful job: the venue was great, the food was great, and all the little details were beautifully carried out.  As always, it was so much fun to reconnect with everyone.  Really looking forward to the next reunion!  Caroline (Nyhus) Ellison
