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??

More Memorabilia Has Been Shared!

Image
Remember when some anonymous Sequoians put a "bomb" from a military surplus store under the bridge in the Japanese Tea Garden and the school was evacuated? It wouldn't be a mere prank these days!  Bill Moll sent the newspaper picture of this event.  He also sent the McKinley graduation program as well as other items including class pictures from McKinley - kindergarten, first grade and 7th grade.  Bill's new items are the first and last entries in the photo album "Memorabilia Classmates have Shared."  And for more such items, see the albums called "When We Were Young" and the one called "Sequoia Times."  Thanks Bill (and the others before him) for what you sent.  Does anyone else have something to share?

Beverly Shelton, Sue Ewing and I were just out of the shower after gym when the fire alarm went off.  Teachers were trying to hurry us out. The fact that we were still wet had no impact on them.  We were told to wrap up and get out to line up on the boys basket ball court.  That's right.  Girls you will remember that most of those towels were both too narrow and too short. Who would be seen out there like that?  We would never have lived it down.  We didn't smell smoke or see flames so we had time.  We decided to take our chances.  We didn't know it was a bomb scare until later.  Would it have made a difference?  I really don't know.
