Reunion Notes and Photos

Each year, members of the Class of 1958 who helped plan their 50th reunion get together for a “Reunion Reunion” This year it was held in January 2014 at the Fish Market in San Mateo.

 The Class of ’59 celebrated its 54th reunion at Mimi’s Restaurant in San Mateo on September 29, 2013. There was a large turnout with approximately 37 classmates attending. After our 50th class reunion, we made ourselves a promise to get together once a year for a picnic in September. After last year’s picnic in Washington Park with rain, we decided a restaurant was a safer plan. We had some classmates who, I don’t think, have ever been to any reunion – like Renee Huf, Sue McClaren Balogh, Dick White and Claire Hirsch Mittler. Nancy Meyer McDonald flew from Pasadena for the day and Warren Roberts came from Davis. This was their first trip back since the 50th. Everyone had a wonderful time (much too short). I heard that Steve Johnson looked around the room and said that everyone was smiling. Plans are in the works for a fabulous 55th “Senior Prom”. Looking forward to it. Submitted by Pat Watts Wynne

The class of '63 got together for a very fun and relaxed 50th reunion on September 28, 2013. About 70 grads, some with guests, met at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame for an evening of drinks, dinner, sharing memories and listening to music of the sixties. Thank you to Rick Pfaff for acting as our M.C. and welcoming classmates.  Judging by the noise level, everyone was having a great time! Guests came from as far away as the East Coast, Northwest, South and locally to catch up on the last 50 years.  A smaller group gathered the previous night at the Steelhead Brewing Co. in Burlingame to kick off the weekend. Many thanks to Sandy (Heckenkemper) Everett and Bonnie (Meck) Hower for their efforts to get us all together again.  A special thank you also to Linda (Kleinert) Forsyth, Linda Jensen, Connie (Liggett) Brown, Barbara (Ross) Conroy and Mary (Vyse) Holton for their help in making our reunion such a success.  We're looking forward to having another reunion in 5 years. Let's make it happen!
