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.

Glendale, CA 91208
Marital Status: Single
Occupation: Biology Instructor at Glendale College
Reunion Message: Twenty years?! Are you sure?! I'll come to the reunion if Mike Overton and Ron Kraut do. I suggest we keep the location of it a secret, and just have a car-rally that ends there. That way, most of us could spend the majority of the evening lost in some God-forsaken neighborhood trying to figure out preposterous clues. On second thought, let's not do that. Maybe we could have a pep-rally instead. I'll be there regardless. See ya then.

We all live in Redlands in the Inland Empire and I really love this town. I am a stay-at-home mom and keep really busy with the girls, other moms groups, the gym and other activities in the community. I am really looking forward to our 30th reunion, like everyone else I can't believe it's been that long, are we really in our later 40's? I feel like I am in the best shape of my life since I finally decided I had to get rid of all the baby weight and extra weight I put on over the years. It has been an exciting year for me and I actually had my name mentioned in Woman's World magazine last month because I lost my weight through a plan developed by Bob Greene and the book he wrote called The Best Life Diet, he truly changed my life. I will see you all next year, I hope we have a great turnout for the reunion, it is always so fun to see people that we grew up with. [May 25, 2008]

Occupation: Restaurateur at La Paloma Restaurante
Comments: Well, I passed by the 20th reunion picnic with my son, who was 14 at the time. Just about the oldest offspring there! Seeing everyone made me realize how ironic life can be -- those who seemed to live the "golden" lives in high school turned out to be "mere mortals" after 20 years! Funny how life can play some cruel tricks! As the Rod Stewart song says, "I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger......" Those who said they'd keep in touch didn't, and those who I most wanted to see weren't there. Oh well, close one chapter and open another. To all of you, I wish endless possibilities; we are what we strive to be -- take care.

Lake City, FL 32024
Marital Status: Married
Spouse Name: Craig
Children: Chase Parker Goodfellow (11/23/1982)
Occupation: Phlebotomist at North Florida Regional Medical Center
Reunion: I didn't know what to expect at the 30 year reunion since I missed both the 10th and the 20th. I feel so blessed that Denise Messenger kept after me to attend along with the support of my husband, Craig...basically I figured I would not be remembered. This decision was harder to deal with than any/all of my birthdays. I made great reconnections with friends I have not seen in so many years. What a great opportunity, I am glad I made the choice I did. I had a blast and wish it could have been longer.
Comments: After I got over my jet lag, our reunion felt like a step back in time. All that attended looked very much the same and it seemed thirty years just vanished. Even though we are older we all picked up conversations and lives where we left off. It was truly amazing.

Tina (Postlmayr) Hallman
San Diego, CA 92109
Marital Status: Married
Husband: Christopher
Children: Dylan (12/92) and Connor (12/95)
Occupation: Telecommunications Manager
Reunion: Both reunions were interesting for a variety of reasons, but mainly because it made me ask the hard self-analysis question of "Why didn't I spend more time getting to know more people in my class?" Was I so self-absorbed or was I shy? At the reunions I really enjoyed getting to know those for whom I never knew at all or just did not know well. I wished that I took the time back in '78. Well, maybe this is an important life lesson which I can pass on to my children.
Comments: I moved to San Diego in 1980 to attend SDSU, where I graduated in 1985 with a BS degree in Business Adminsitration. I love San Diego's weather and casualness, and never want to live anywhere else. Lucky I married someone who feels the same way, so it looks like we will retire here some day, but in the meantime, Chris and I are working hard trying to balance raising our boys and working full time.

Kathy (Quam) Moore
Thousand Oaks, CA
Marital Status: Divorced/Single
Children: 1 son, age 22
Occupation: Systems Engineer Employer: General Dynamics - AIS
Comments: Life is always busy isn't it? Where did the 30 years go since High School? Well for me it's been something like this: I went to Hawaii after High School with my buddies Marcella Morgan, Lori (Westerholm) Misi, and Nancy (Chandler) Johnson. I was also a Bob's Big Boy waitress for a time. This was truly 'The Wonder Years' wasn't it? In the early 80's I got married and was a stay-at-home PTA Mom for nearly 16 years. I was lucky to have the early years at home with my son. These were the 'Rollercoaster Years' of my life, full of incredible highs and lows. In the mid-90's, I faced raising a son on my own, so I went back to school and was a full-time computer science student at California Lutheran University, graduating when I was almost 40. This time of my life my son and I fondly called the 'Ghetto Years'. For the past (almost) nine years I've been working at General Dynamics - AIS in Thousand Oaks, CA, first as a Software Engineer and currently as a Systems Engineer. My son attends college locally and is one great guy. It is fun to see his adult life beginning. What will I call this time of my life? The 'Office Space years', perhaps, but hey! it pays the mortgage. My life's journey has had its ups and downs, but I have no regrets. I've enjoyed reading all of your stories as it makes me realize we are all still the same great people we were during the 'Wonder Years' at CVHS.
Reunion: I attended the 10 year reunion, the 20 year family picnic and plan on attending the 30th. Thank you, Tia (and committee) for all of your hard work! Hope to see you all there on October 18, 2008.

Reunion Message: I attended a picnic for our first or second reunion -- that was scary enought for me. Seeing those that I went to La Crescenta Elementary, Clark Jr. High, and CVHS brought back lots of familiarity and memories. Spending all that time in school together was memorable. I haven't attended any other reunions -- I may when we get to the 50th -- now that would be interesting.

Occupation: Human Resources Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering
Reunion: I have no concept of time, so it is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since we roamed the halls at C.V. I spent the years working on my college degrees and climbing the corporate ladder. I am still best friends with my high school buddy and we both are in denial that we are in our 40's (ugh!). When did that happen? If you remember me, drop me a line I would love to say Hi! [October 22, 2007]

Vance Weaver
San Francisquito Canyon
Saugus, CA
Marital Status: Significant Other
S.O.'s name: Peg
Children: Nichole, (4/13/94)
Occupation: Painting Contractor, Handyman
Comments: Always unconventional, always choosing the path less traveled. For 1 1years, my previous job took me all over the US, to Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Columbia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, and Canada. Then they unceremoniously canned me. Well, piss off! After a few short lived jobs, I finally got up the nerve to strike out on my own. I decided that being an employee lacks a certain "Je ne se qua". (Thank you Mrs. Packard!) Self employed since 2000, now working on building my painting contractor business (w/ Mike Overton.) That road is definitely not for the weak at heart! But highly rewarding in the "I did it my way" way. My daughter lives with her mom in Burbank and goes to Burroughs. She won't let me go to the football game against CV. What happens to girls when they become teenagers? She's going to drive me to an early grave. But she will come out fine. Peg and I have been "getting married" for years. One day we'll finalize our plans, and then she can have my other ring. We live on a small ranch in Saugus. It's a regular "Animal Farm."
Reunion information: Great to see everyone at the reunions. So many people look the same as 30 years ago! It must be the La Crescenta air. Does anyone still go ice blocking? Or play Risk on the roof of the Bonaventure? Count me in, as long as I can be in bed by 9
