Sorry to hear about Geraldeen as well.  Even though I didn't know her, it saddens me that others are grieving and hurting.  My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

Bekkie, I'd like to see a more formal 50th reunion also.  I've thought about something different like a harbor yacht evening cruise. I've been to an evening wedding and reception on a yacht in Newport Bay and it was awesome.

I'm not a big fan of formal dinners because it takes so much time from the mingling social aspect. I think appetizers are the way to go in the future.

Then maybe even a second get together with the picnic park or beach atmosphere the next day.

I'm sure we can come up with some great, unique ideas that everyone will enjoy.

Your note got my attention.  I think a harbor cruise is a great idea for many reasons.  I've gone quite a few, both socially and for business. Your idea for appetizers as food is great for the reason you stated--it supports mingling and encourages the shyer people and others, who otherwise might just talk with close friends, to get to know each other better. It would be a very special evening. For the best rates on Hornblower, you need a commitment of 125 people.

Hi Classmates,  Sad news!  Donna Stolle-Patterson passed away yesterday.  Tom posted this on Face Book and then called me today.  Fortunately, she got to talk with many of our classmates at our 45th Reunion at Original Mike's, a couple of weeks ago.  I took my phone around the place, so that she could say "Hi".  She called me back a few days later saying what fun it was to chat with everyone,  and of course, she knew "everyone".  She's out of pain, now and is not having to fight this anymore.

In sorrow,

Peggy

I'm soooo very sorry to hear this, Peggy... thank you for letting me know (since I'm not on Facebook).  I recall what a good time we had together at her house in Washington years back!  She'll really be missed... was such a sweet person.  Deepest condolences to her family and friends.  I'm sure the Dysinger kids remember her fondly.

Best wishes, Sharon Joy Brunner

So sorry to hear about Donna's passing.  She was a great friend during a time when I really needed a friend, many years ago.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

Thank you Pam for the good idea of a harbor cruise for our 50th and a family picnic the next day. Also, thank you Peggy for sharing about Donna. It was very sweet of you to let all of us talk with her on your phone. I'm sure that made her smile! She will be greatly missed :(

My cousin had her wedding reception on a harbor cruise, and it was all right - of course I was a lot younger and got pretty buzzed on tequila.  Thought I was pretty clever about it, 'cause how could my parents know I was buzzed when we were on a boat and I wasn't walking "straight!"  (I was already in my late 20's, but still worried about what my parents would think!)

Harbor cruises are nice, but you have to take into consideration everyone.  I use a walker these days, because I'm not always steady on my feet.  I wouldn't be able to do a harbor cruise.  And as for a family picnic - I would have to pass on that, because I'm not really big on picnics, myself - never have been.

However, this is only one person.

I am so sorry to hear about Donna's passing. I always enjoyed being in class with her and she was always kind to everyone. It is amazing the things you remember about your classmates and your experiences with them. My thoughts and prayers go to her family and to all of you who knew Donna as you go through the greiving process. May god's blessings be with each and everyone of you.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm in Show Low AZ taking care of my granddaughters (9 1/2 and 4) until my daughter can arrange for childcare. She's an Emergency Room nurse. Sarah had to work Thurs so we had our dinner on Wed. Just us girls!

Take care and enjoy the holidays!

love, Kathie

I've been wondering about Michelle Holman lately. I've been so preoccupied with my issues that I just tonight checked her fb page. I'm sorry to say that she passed away in her sleep in Jan. Her brother posted this on Jan 15th. Her birthday was Jan 12th.

RIP Shelley <3

With all the negativity towards the confederate flag and related statues that is sweeping our nation, does anyone know if the Rebel statue in the senior quad is in jeopardy of being taken down?

Gosh, I hope not...That is our history....This is crazy.

I think our Johnny Rebel Statue has been down for several years. Chris Cummings Noel has the best memory...she will confirm.

The statue is down and won't be replaced.  Below is the link to an OC Register article about the statue's demise.

It's a sad state of affairs for everyone.  My kids school had to change their mascot because they were the "Indians" and the local tribes took offense.  Total nonsense.

Chris Cummings (Noel)

Unfortunately Johnny Reb is gone. There was a group trying to raise funds to repair him headed up by some of the first graduating classes but the cost was so great and I think the interest wasn't there from the powers that be. It wasn't a Political decision but rather a maintenance issue. The stone wall planter bench surrounding the statue wasn't even to code and was loose and unsafe. The statue outer metal, or whatever it was cast with, was showing the underneath frame. So sad for those of us that looked at that center quad daily.

  I'm sorry to say that we lost another Rebel. Tanya Vandemaele from the class of 1970 passed away on May 6th from a massive heart attack.  I loved to see her posts on her family, traveling and her smile. My prayers go out to her family and friends.

Thank you Loren for letting everyone know about this. This message forum is so wonderful for getting out important information. I didn't know her but I'm sure many on here do. So sorry for family and friends.

Hello and Happy Labor Day to you all.

I would love to see as many of you as possible attend this upcoming annual HAPPY HOUR in Yorba Linda at the El Torito , right off the 91 freeway and Weir Canyon. This is a SAVANNA HIGH event that started over 25 yrs ago by older class grads. If you are interested it's a No Brainer. Just show up. We take over the side patio and bar.  Come casual. Buy your own food and drinks. No fee~just good mingling and conversations. This has grown tremendously over the past 6 yrs or so. Come on over on OCTOBER 2nd anytime after 4:30 and stay as long as you like. It's a great evening!

Hope to see many of you there   

Chris
