Our 45 Year Reunion, Come Alive for 45! was held on July 20 and 21, 2018 at the Cabrillo Doubletree Hilton, San Pedro!

Another most enjoyable and successful reunion!

The theme of the 45 Reunion was "Remembering San Pedro"

Over 150 classmates and guests were treated to a weekend that included two evenings of socializing with classmates, seeing old friends, catching up on life events, school memories, great stories, nostalgia, remembering San Pedro, oldies, dancing, yearbook signings, a photo booth, Pirate sightings...Arrr!, Pirate buffet grub and grog, sea chanties, scuttlebutt, and raffle ticket booty.

Friday, July 20: Social Mixer at the Cabrillo Hilton, Santa Rosa Room, San Pedro
The weekend festivities began on Friday evening in the lobby of the Cabrillo Hilton where guests assembled the hotel lobby and the Santa Rosa Room.
Attendees were treated to memorable schoolday oldies played by The McGuires, a band comprised of classmate Barbara and her husband, Max. This touring band had a great sound and was truly excellent. Incidentally, Max's class reunion was scheduled for the same weekend as our 45 reunion! Fortunately, he decided to attend Barbara's reunion.

The Madeo Room banquet tables were replete with Centerpieces and Placemats that depicted old San Pedro Postcards.

A few guests from other classes attended our reunion. Most notable was Julie Ardaiz (class of 1975), on your right with Kelly, who was invited to represent her brother, Mark, who sadly passed away a few years ago. Several classmates were able to relay their memories and stories about her brother for which she was truly thankful.

The 45 Year Class Reunion Committee would like to provide special recognition thank our special assistants for their selfless service: Caitlin, daughter of Terry Bass Canavan, Elisabeth, daughter of Noel Tamburovich Vuoso, and Kathleen, daughter of Nancy Bowen Budar. The reunion would not have been as successful without their help. Elisabeth and Kathleen have helped at several of our past reunions, are honorary members of our class.
