60 Year Reunion MOVED TO 2021 or ?????

Dear Classmate:
This year we hope we can be celebrating 60 years since our golden days at Sequoia.  (Are we really that old?  Sigh!)

We have rescheuled the event to this year, but the restrictions on gatherings due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) may make that not possible.  We are meeting with the Sequoia High Alumni Association to see if they will be having their annual on-campus alumni barbecue.  And we willl be evaluating whatever restrictions may still be in place in August.
 
We hope we can be piggybacking on the Sequoia Alumni Association’s annual picnic weekend.  If it is held, folks from the Class of 1961  (the young kids a year behind us) will also be at the Alumni Association picnic as will many, many Sequoia alumni from lots of years -recent alums back to the 1940s or 1950s.

This is the plan as it currently stands.  We welcome your input as we evaluate this option.  Email is Sequoia60List@aol.com

===========Hoped For Dates ================
 
                Saturday, August 21, 2021, daytime picnic event.  The Sequoia Alumni Assoc. sponsors their annual picnic on campus. If you haven’t been to the campus for a while, this is an excellent opportunity to visit, see some old friends, and take one of their tours.  (You’d be surprised how many things have changed since we were there and things are better, not wrecked).   There will be tours including the Japanese Tea Garden, Carrington Hall, the hallways with lockers that we all remember, and the restaurant and new buildings.
 
                Saturday, August 21, 2021, evening event.  Our own dinner/dance will be held at the Redwood City Elks Lodge, 938 Wilmington Way, near Jefferson Ave. in the Emerald Hills area of Redwood City.     
 
Got feedback??

Picnic will be at Flood Park, and We Have More Memorabilia

Did you know we were in the 63rd Sequoia Graduating Class?
Did you know we were in the 63rd Sequoia Graduating Class?

Our Sunday Picnic, Aug 22, will be at Flood Park - a park so many of us visited when we were teenagers.

And we are inviting to the Big 50th Reunion any of our old teachers that we can find.  See the Teachers and Coaches web page to learn how we are doing in finding them.  Help us if you can.
 
And check out the photo album of Memorabilia sent by classmates.  Karin Pearce Coy sent us a copy of the June 1958 Sequoia Times which is full of the history of Sequoia.  You'll see articles on Coach Frank Griffin, the demolition of the old Carriage House, the origin of the Japanese Tea Garden, a dedication to Don Bogie and Doris Dean who left at the end of 1958, information about Chief Sequoia, Otis Carrington, and former principal Argo, and pictures of old sports teams.  

And Karin Pearce Coy also sent a copy of the Commencement Program for 1960 which has the names of the 463 who graduated with us.  The names are listed, although there is a typo - the program calls us the graduates of 1959.  

At the end of January we made our first postal mailing to those who don't have email, giving them the overview of reunion events.  

The planning is underway for the gatherings.  And we are still looking for the classmates on our lost list.  

As always, you are invited to join the reunion committee, or to volunteer to help in any other way (video taping, sending memorabilia, helping at the gatherings).  It is going to be a great weekend.  

Please leave a message on this site for your fellow classmates.  And keep signing on to get the latest info.
