Sequoia '59 ...
A 55th reunion website
for the Sequoia Class of 1959

Dear Classmates ...

It doesn't seem possible that it's been nearly five years since our 50th reunion celebration -- but it has been -- and the committee has put together our next party to celebrate the 55th anniversary of our graduation.

Based largely on input from many of you, our thoughts focused on putting together an informal get-together much like the one we enjoyed at David's Restaurant at the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club for our 50th.  Also, we considered scheduling it for late August to coincide with the SHS Alumni Association picnic.  And that is what we've done.

A special thank you to new committee member Bill Hoolhorst, who did the lion's share of research and came up with the final recommendation adopted by the committee.  Here are the plans:
DATE:  Saturday, August 16, 2014
TIME:  Alumni Picnic on campus, 10:30 am-3 pm
          Class Reunion, 5 pm-10 p.m.
          [picnic info:]
PLACE:  Club Fox, next to Fox Theatre, downtown RC
     5-6 pm     Happy Hour
     6-8 pm     Buffet Dinner
     8-10 pm   Conversation, dancing, etc.

COST:  $19.59/person ($39.18/couple).  Checks only
            to Kathy Bartole Shaw, 6416 Grandmeadow
            Lane, San Jose, CA 95135.  Make checks
            payable to "Sequoia Reunion Committee."

            Please put your email address on your check
            so we can send a confirmation of payment.

No payments will be taken at the door, so please send
your checks soon so you won't forget. We need to alert
the caterer with the final headcount by Friday, August 1.
We will attempt to keep this website current, beginning over the next few weeks by updating the 'In Memoriam" page.  We have lost several classmates since the 50th, and we know you would like to have that information.  We will, for the time being, keep in place some of the pages we built for the 50th in case you might enjoy a look back.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact any one of
Stay well,
Your Reunion Committee
