Our class reunion went so fast it's a blur. I keep looking at the pictures. For all of those that didn't go, you don't know what you missed. It was a great time. We were back in the sixties for a little while. Great job to all that put it together and the venue was beautiful. Thanks to all.

What a party!  The DJ was great, getting everyone up & working out!  The music was so much fun to dance to, just like old times.  The venue couldn't have been better - Thanks to all who worked so hard putting it together.

Bob and I had a wonderful time!  Bob is still hoarse from talking so much. :) Fifty years seemed to be wiped away and we were all youngsters again, although I have to say I'm a little achey from all the dancing, but it was worth every second. Martha, Frank and Candy, everything was perfect. We can't thank you enough. Can I be the first to nominate all of you to head up our next get together?  Everyone in favor say...........I would love to help. I'm in!

Jusst a note. The "grad nite" page mentions that 64 was the first all night grad party at Disneyland. Class of 63 had one also.

I hope everyone had a great time at the reunion.

yes First, I would like to give a heart felt thank you to Martha, Frank, Candy and all those who organized and participated in this wonderful event.  That is what I call "Ram Spirit".

I, like many of you only wish it could have lasted longer.  This weekend went by as fast as the last 50, where did it go. 

Though I did not get to reconnect with all of you personally, I did at least get to talk to some of you briefly.  And that was a wonderful feeling.   

For those that have passed before us, we should not worry.   They were celebrating right along with us.....just from a "Higher Venue". 

Thank's to all of you 1964 SGHS  "kids".  You seriously brought tears of happiness to this 68 year old "kid".crying

It  was an amazing weekend! Thanks to Frank, Martha, and Candy for making it so successful.  It was quite an experience to reconnect with old friends and to be back in high school again. It reminded me of how lucky I was to be at South Gate High with so many wonderful classmates. The location of the reunion was beautiful, relaxing, and spacious.  Thanks to everyone who came.

Hi once again.   Added photo of a mini-South Gate reunion of sorts.  My last night at the Star Wars Convention last month and Andrea (Padilla) Andrade, Carla (Williams) Roberts and Mary and I had dinner in Anaheim. We could have talked for hours more.....Thanking all who collected information from the Class of '64 so that we were able to contact one another.

Still working my way around this site but just adding news about my April:  Fantastic PINK concert! Great vids posted by daughter on my FB wall; Of course I attended the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago and got a pic and chat with Hayden Christensen  - but this is what it took for that great smile - I said, "Let's pretend I'm your grandmother who only wants the best for you" ----- it worked!  Pic on wall.  Then....I took off for Copenhagen and all parts Scandinavia (except Norway, dang it), then over to the Baltic States of Lativa and Estonia (sooooo inspirational - the Singing Revolutin - had you ever heard of it?  Me neither but I'll never forget it...Then to Poland where we had the most enthusiastic guide ever - he looked like a college student but his goal was to have us leave his country loving it as much as he did....Then on to Russia!  My degree is in History so...I was stoked to see the burial sites of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great and now the Romanovs who were all (including their dog) murdered to accommodate the Russian Revoltuion. I really need to contact my college professors,   I returned from this trip and had to get ready for Doctor Who!  Fantastic visit and pic with my favorite Doctor, #10, David Tennant with one of my favorite companions, Martha aka Freema Agyeman.  Oye - don't see an icon indicating at

All my $ went here to fulfill a promise to my granddaughter - a trip to Paris if she continued to find room for her French class in college. Trip was cancelled 3 times after booking Airbnb and flights. It finally happened and I just returned.  My daughter and her son also joined us and we lucked out because the Airbnb I booked was rigtht across the street from the stadium where the French soccer national team plays and practices and that includes their star, Mbappé, who my grandson worships, Also it was the week of a music festival so we had stadium light shows and entertainment going on nearly every night where we benefited from having a balcony and it was great stuff, real music to my ears if you'll excuse the pun. Elton John was in Paris the entire week too for his sold out farewell tour concert. And now I have so much jet lag after waking up from a long nap,  I thought my travel partners had spent the night so I fixed a fresh batch of coffee only to was 8:30...PM.  And those travel partners are either on the east side of Michigan or back home in upstate New York.  I don't think these kinds of things get better with age - they just happen more often Sorry I won't be at the reunion but after annually cancelling for each year due to the pandemic, I wanted to have that promise I made back in 2019 fulfilled.
