Here's what's happening
We are the people we were warned about: don’t trust anybody over 30; we have exceeded that twice over. We are the generation of JFK, the Beatles, RFK, MLK, Woodstock, Manson and Viet-Nam – Love is All You Need! We are parents, grandparents, and, in some cases, great-grandparents. We have survived teenage angst and middle age insecurity. We are the Class of 1968!

Thursday night (10/4) – 5pm tour of Santa Ana High School; 5:30 – 6:45 meet at deli /across from Santa Ana Stadium; Saints home game against Calvary Chapel begins at 7pm. Contact John Kulisich at email@example.com.
