I wanted to personally thank you and your committee for all the work you did to make the reunion such a great success! I know everyone had a wonderful time. You can well be proud of how successful it was.
Thanks again. Pete Meredith
This is a big thank you from the perspective of a spouse of a class member that would have graduated from Sequoia had she not been transferred to Menlo Atherton after her sophomore year.
First I thank you for including those who completed only two years such as my wife Sharon Jean Varney Jones. Sharon’s loyalty, in our more than forty-seven years of marriage, has been to Sequoia and not Menlo Atherton. I will mention here that she also received her first invitation to the Menlo Atherton Class reunion this year and, of course, chose to attend Sequoia’s festivities.
I would be remiss should I neglect to thank Sue Miramontes Spencer and her husband Daniel for their hospitality as they supplied lodging for Sharon and I for this visit. Sharon and Sue have maintained their friendship over the scores of years and for this I am grateful. Also, I feel somewhat certain that Sue had a hand in making sure Sharon was included which also included me.
I very much appreciate the effort this committee put into planning this fifty year reunion as you afforded me a great time. However, we did not attend the alumni picnic but did find the Sequoia high school tour most enjoyable. Your graduating class was larger then the entire student body of the high school I attended in Tampa, Florida. The Friday night Harry’s Hofbrau event was a great way to kick things off and a tremendous ice breaker. The Sunday picnic at Flood Park was a very relaxed way to end this celebration but I will admit I was
somewhat saddened that the good times were now over. I found the people of this Sequoia class of 1960 to be among the friendliest I have known and I am blessed to have been included. During our three days with you all, Sue and Daniel gave Sharon and me the tour of Redwood City and I could see the memories came rushing back for Sharon as our forty-seven years of marriage we have resided in Muncie, Indiana.
We are now looking forward to the fifty-five year class reunion. Should you decide to include Sharon again and if God is willing, we will make everyeffort to attend.
In closing, I again want to thank you, the committee, and all of the friendly people of the graduating class of 1960 that I was privileged to meet. Bud L. Jones Sr. – husband of Sharon Jean Varney Jones
Golly Guys, I didn't even see this most appropriate page of oh so well
earned plaudits. What a great time it was; both exciting and in so many ways unbelievably poignant. I'm so glad we had both the Harry's eve and the picnic because when I'm in my dancing queen incarnation, I'm oblivious to nearly everything and would have missed connecting with so many lovely people. I feel very privileged to have been part of our Sequoia experience as well as, in my case, the McKinley and Lincoln years. I missed those who have gone and those who
could not come for one reason or another but, by golly, those of you who were there are some mighty fine folk. Let's do it all again! Lynn Bruneau Bruce
Kent Marshall here: I would like to thank you and anyone that had to do with the planning of this event. It was great. Please thank all those that were involved. Hopefully we can get together again in the near future. Kent Marshall
