Here's what's happening
50th reunion

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!

Here’s what we got:

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 kklubber@aol.com.

Friday night (10/5) – 6pm meet and greet at Zito’s Pizza, 2036 N. Tustin St., Orange; this is a byo (buy your own) affair.

Saturday (10/6) - Irvine Park, site 2, 10am till 4pm. Park entrance fee is $5.00 per car. Reunion picnic: BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, condiments, potato and macaroni salads, chips, sodas and water; side dishes always welcome. Acoustic music: musicians bring your instruments (electric at the Elks). The Man(n) is Brian at mannmademusic@cox.net.

Raffle - we have the following items:  Brian Mann has donated 2 nights at his Baywood Cottage on the coast (https://baywoodcottage.com), half a case of wine, and a gift basket, so far.  Anyone who wishes to contribute please contact Kathy Goddard at luv2teachninos@yahoo.com.

Saturday night (10/6) – 7:30-12pm Orange Elks Club, 211 E. Chapman, Orange (the circle), Hors d’oeuvres, dessert, 2 drinks, door prizes and music.

Preliminary costs are projected to be $20-25 per person for the picnic and $15-20 per person for the Elks club; raffle tickets $3 each or 2 for $5. These will become more definite as we know how many are attending. So now we need to know who’s coming to which event and how many!! So if you would either reply to this email by marking the boxes below or send a separate email to any committee member.

Thursday night     yes__   no ___     how many ___

"68/68" Reunion update


CALENDARS ARE MARKED!! Only six months left and the reunion is here: Saturday, October 6, at Irvine Park, site 2.
A Splendid time is guaranteed for all.
Our 50th, or as Danny has appropriately named it, our “68/68” (class of 68 and we’re all pretty much 68 years old), reunion includes a bbq of hamburgers and hot dogs, with sides provided by local classmates who volunteer, a raffle, and unplugged music. Time? Um, starts around 10 am and goes til about 4pm.
But wait, that’s not all. After a dinner interlude (see below) of 3 hours, at 7pm the reunion continues with the third event at the Elks Club in Orange (the circle, Glassell and Chapman) at 211 E. Chapman Ave., Orange. This event will contain cocktails and hors d’oevres (snacks, whatever), and last til around 12 midnight.
A Friday night event is also planned but not set yet. One suggestion, from our last reunion, is a meet-and-greet get-together at a venue like a pizza parlor with a capacity for a sizable crowd. Let us know what you think!!!
Our “68/68” reunion coincides with the annual All Saints Reunion Picnic located at site 3 for those who wish to visit classmates from other years. Of course, the attire is casual, why else would we come?!
Those who wish to contribute something for the raffle contact Kathy Goddard at luv2teachninos@yahoo.com.
Dining venues all within 10-15 minutes’ walk of the Elks club, with a variety of cuisines:
Avila’s Ranchito                  Rutabegorz                 Wahoo’s Fish Tacos
Felix Continental Café       Citrus City Grill           Gabbi’s Mexican Kitchen
Jalapeno’s                            Filling Station Renta Café Italiano
Zito’s Pizza
 
Here are some suggestions for hotels in the area for all you out-of-towners:
Doubletree Hotel                                                  Ramada Plaza Hotel
100 The City Dr. South                                         515 W. Katella Ave.
Orange, CA 92868                                                 Anaheim, CA
(714) 634-4500                                                      (714) 817-9793


Marriott Anaheim                                                Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel
700 W. Convention Way                                     1380 Harbor Blvd.

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:
