Coming in 2018:    our 50th class reunion



Hello Classmates,


Hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day with the long weekend and all.


Your reunion committee has tentatively scheduled the 50th reunion for October 6, 2018, at Irvine Park, site 2. This will correspond with the All Saint’s Reunion annual picnic held at site 3 on the same date, for those who wish to mingle with classmates from other years. This will become set as we can reserve the space in the fall of this year. We are still working on the events for Friday and Saturday nights, which were so successful at the last reunion.


The All Saints Reunion Picnic will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017, as reservations were already taken when they booked. The event is at site 3.


We are always looking for missing classmates. If you know of someone who has not received an email or any communication from the reunion committee please let us know, so we may incorporate them into our database. You can contact any of the following committee members:

Hi Jeff.  I heard from Heidi that you worked with her to post the article written about me in the San Diego Union Tribune.
 It was quite a joy and I appreciate Heidi’s sweet thoughts and your help to post it for our SAHS friends.  Kathy

Coach Baldwin passes.

Coach Tom Baldwin passed away quietly at his home on March 21 from complications with Parkinson's Disease. He was 85. Coach Baldwin began his coaching carrier at Santa Ana High School, then moved to Santa Ana Valley, a semi-pro team, and Costa Mesa High School. He retired in 2010. He led the 1967 Santa Ana High School football team to a 12-1 season, losing only to Anaheim in the CIF finals, held for the first time in the new Anaheim Stadium. We were very fortunate to have Coach Baldwin at our last reunion, the 45th, where he gave a short pre-game pep talk and joined us in our class picture. Services will be held sometime at the end of April. We will all miss you Tom.


 
 
Laurie Lusk posted the following:
 
I wanted to let everyone know there is going to be a memorial held on April 30 at the Santa Ana Bowl at 2 PM for Coach Baldwin. Everyone is invited

50th Reunion right around the corner

Our 50th reunion comes up next year and your reunion committee is now gearing up for that event. Below is the email we sent to all our classmates recently. If you did not receive one please contact anyone on the committee with your contact information.


Class of 1968

Greetings:

Hello everyone. This is your reunion committee. It’s been 50 years since we roamed the halls of Santa Ana High School as students. And next year is the 50th reunion of our graduation and we are now in the process of planning that celebration.

Our 40th reunion, nine years ago, was put together in the spring of 2008 and we tagged along with the All Saints Reunion at Irvine Park that September, holding our reunion across the parking lot from the main event at Site 3. This was a potluck affair and 72 classmates attended sharing reminiscing.

The next reunion, the 45th, we reserved our own site at Irvine Park on the same Saturday as the All Saints Reunion and provided a bar-b-que and locals contributions of desserts, a raffle, and a good time shared by all. The previous evening we had a meet-and-greet at a pizza parlor and Saturday evening, following the picnic there was an evening event in Mark Finley’s backyard with a Taco Bar service. The total cost was $45.00 for the Saturday events, if you attended both, and Friday was byob. There were 84 classmates at the picnic, 38 at the Friday night pizza parlor, and 36 at the Finley’s Saturday evening.

Our inclination at this time is to repeat this formula for the next reunion: a picnic as the main event, a Friday and Saturday night event. The main concern at the last two reunions held in September was the heat. The All Saints Reunion, has for this reason moved its event to the first Saturday in October, a bit cooler and more convenient.  The committee is proposing the following:

Friday night: a Saints football game if they are playing at home; or, a meet-and –greet at a pizza parlor style place only bigger than last time.

Saturday: main reunion picnic held at Irvine Park on the same Saturday as the All Saints Reunion Picnic in October but at our own site, providing Bar-B-Que and local contributions of desserts and sides. Hold a raffle and a live acoustic musical performance for a small admission fee. The same day as the All Saints allows everyone to visit members of other classes.

Saturday evening: an event either a dinner at someone’s backyard, or some sort of hall for dancing and music.

We, the committee, would like your input as to the reunion event you would like.  We want to organize a reunion that satisfies. And, as always, we are constantly seeking those classmates we do not have contact information for. You can contact the committee at any one of the following email addresses:

Vicki Conway (Kincaid)   Kincaid_vicki@hotmail.com

Jeff Genet                       jdgen@sbcglobal.net

Brian Mann                    mannmademusic@cox.net

Mark Finley                    getmwfinley@cox.net

On social media we have three outlets: FaceBook, ClassMates, and the blog. The most popular, as far as membership goes, is Classmates. The most active if FaceBook for staying current on what is happening. The least scanned is the blog. The committee would encourage all to migrate to FaceBook for the current information concerning our class, listed in the group section Santa Ana High School Class of 1968.

 

All Saints 2016

From Danny Salas: pictures of the last All Saints Reunion Picnic-

Here are a few pictures of our classmates who showed up for the All Saints Reunion at Irvine Park this year. It turned out to be a nice day. It was way cooler than last year's. The reunion will be held on the 1st Saturday of October from now on. In the pictures were, Dan Johnson along with his brothers Eddie and Bobby. Andy Solis, Pat Munoz, Frank Belk, Phil Martinez,and myself. Mary Madrid Gomez was the only lady who showed up.

Elephants and donkeys, tis the season. And now the spring 2016 classmates update!!!


Hello Class of ’68. It is a little more than 2 years until our 50th reunion. We are now in the beginning stages of planning. The last two, 40th and 45th , were held at Irvine Park, a casual and relaxing atmosphere of socializing and fun.

The 40th was held in conjunction with the All Saints Annual Reunion Picnic, held every Saturday following Labor Day in September. Our reunion was held across the parking lot and was a bring your lunch and beverages affair. We had 72 classmates attend.

We were so inspired by the turnout that we decided that the 45th reunion should be held at the same place and same time. This time we rented site 3 while the All Saints Reunion Picnic had moved to site 1. Instead of everyone bringing their own food and beverages, we decided to have a bbq and provide beverages and asked attendees to bring side dishes. We also expanded the reunion into a three event shindig. We had a Friday night meet-and-greet at a pizza parlor, the reunion at Irvine Park on Saturday, and a dinner at Mark Finley’s house Saturday night. We had 84 attend the picnic, 38 for pizza, and 36 for dinner at Finley’s. Two-thirds of those attending the picnic did not attend the 40th reunion picnic. The picnic had a cost of $25.00 per person and the dinner at Finley’s (taco bar) was $20.00 per person. Whichever events they attended, everyone seemed to have a good time.

Your reunion committee has grown since the last reunion. The committee now consists of:

For those of you who are computer savvy we have the following social media outlets:

Facebook – groups Santa Ana High School Class of 1968

Classmates – class of 1968

Blog – sahs68.blogspot.com

The Facebook site is the most popular and easiest to use. If you are not a member it is easy and free to sign up and become a member. Classmates has the most numbers but is limited on posting information. The blog is the least maintained.

Now we are approaching our 50th reunion. This next year we will primarily concentrate on contacting missing classmates. We would like everyone to send us a list of the classmates they are in contact with so we can compare them to our master list. You can relay this information to any member of the committee. The success of the last two reunions has encouraged us to repeat that formula, but we would like to encourage all to provide suggestions for the next reunion. We want you make this our biggest and best reunion yet.

Your reunion committee.

Happy 125th SAHS



Happy Birthday Sammy and sally
Next month Santa Ana High School celebrates it’s 125th birthday. Established in 1889 (though earlier classes graduated from other schools), the school has grown and expanded, surviving the digital botox of structural reconstruction, remaining proud and honored. The school is providing a party in celebration on September 6 beginning at 9:00am to 11:00am, beginning with the band and choir commencing with tours of the campus.
Immediately following this event the annual All Saints Reunion Picnic will be at Irvine Park, Site 1.
