Progress Report from the Reunion Committee

The PVP School District has agreed to let the Class of 1969 take over Senior Park for our Sunday Picnic, August 30 of reunion weekend! We originally looked at a couple of parks in San Pedro, but the Lion’s Club race that day would have closed the streets, so we moved the venue. What better place to reminisce than our very own alma mater? The only catch: just like when we were in high school, there’s no smoking and no alcohol allowed on campus.

Watch your snail mail for your official reunion invitation, coming soon. It will have all the details, map and directions, and a mail-in registration order form for payments by check. We also want to make it easy for you to register online by credit card if you choose, and that function will be up and running shortly on the class web site. The price is $79, and if you can afford a little extra to help with the reunion costs, you can make a Supporter Contribution for $20 or a Sponsor Contribution for $50.

We’ve added a new feature to the 40th Reunion: Classic cars from the 60s! Vintage wheels will be on display the night of the big party at Ports O’ Call, Saturday August 29. If you have a classic car you’d like to bring, contact Tom Templeton at

Pam Gilkison is putting together the music playlist for the Saturday Night Dinner Dance at Ports O’ Call, August 29. Want to hear your favorite oldies from the 60s at the big party that night? Send suggestions to Pam at

We are still accepting t-shirt designs for the official reunion t-shirt. Get creative around the Beach Party theme and submit your ideas by July 1. See details at

Thanks to everyone who has checked in to confirm your own address and provide contact information on other classmates. If you haven’t confirmed your info in the past four months, please e-mail me at so we know we are mailing your reunion invitation to the right place. Guessing takes extra postage!
