Class of 1978 Forty-Year Reunion.

Sept 22, 2018 &emdash; Saturday

6 - 9 pm. El Charro, Montrose.

Many more details to come.

Here is the link for tickets to the Falcon Fly-In Sept 22


In hopes that if you are in the area and have some time to spare you will stop by and say hello, share some laughs and a hug or two as some of our Falcons return home for a visit and, perhaps, tip one back for another who has taken flight to bigger skies....

Restaurant will be serving a buffet and will have a CASH ONLY bar (NO Credit Cards).

This is for alumni only, initially, but if there are still tickets available after August 20th, then sales will be opened up to spouses or significant others until sold out. Tickets are $50 each.

Plans are made for a Friday night event (Football Game &emdash;CVHS vs Pasadena at Moyse Stadium, 7pm, then after party) and a Sunday brunch (Deukmejian Wilderness Park 8am - 5pm) where everyone, including spouses/SO's, are invited. Sue and Kevin are organizing that.

This weekend is a great time to reconnect with friends, share a laugh, a beverage, a picture and enjoy life. 

We hope to see many of you at one or all of the events.

Please pass the word to anyone you know from the Class of '78 in case they haven't updated their email and are not on Facebook.

Dress code &emdash; Casual &emdash; Wear what you want.

Events are posted on Facebook. If you have any questions, please contact Janina Skikas Robertson 909 374-3894

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Michael Hopkins

is NOT Deceased

We had some confusion here. The Michael Hopkins on the left was reported to be very much alive and doesn't have a sister named Pat or Anne. The Michael C. Hopkins who is deceased was a member of the class of 77 and did not have a senior picture taken. We have no further information about this Michael Hopkins' whereabouts, however.

While in Columbia Mark hooked up with his old girl friend, brought her home , and they have now been married 25 years. Mike and I meet two english sisters during the 1984 olympics in Los Angeles (this is the short version) and a year later went to England to marry the girls. It has been 21 years of blessings, blessing, and more Blessings.And lots of trips to England to visit the family. God has been good. We are now living in Palmdale where our oldest daughter Alex just graduated from Desert Christian High School. Mike and I are busy with our business and have Mike boys helping with alot of the work. Well, I guess there is more I could ! say but I don't want to bore you. I will try to make the 30th to see how everybody is doing.
