50th Reunion

March 2020 - Urgent Notice

Classmates, Teachers & Guests

We've have had to POSTPONE our 50th Class Reunion un until fall.  I have avoided writing this hoping things would begin to look up.  Due to the current global Coronavirus Pandemic and restrictions now being implemented by all levels of government, everything is closing or shutting down - including some, if not all, of our vendors.  

We know this is a disappointment for many of us who have been looking forward to our 50th reunion.  The good news is we are working on a new fall date and will keep you posted. 

To those of you who have flights booked - we are so very sorry.  I have received reservations and checks but have not deposited them.  I can either send them back to you, shred them or hang on to them for the future reunion (at your request) this fall.

You can email, call or text me personally for any questions you may have - 661-201-7663 or Claudia_Milazzo@yahoo.com. 

Until then, please exercise mindful, safe and healthy hygiene for yourself, family, friends and those you come in contact with.

Sincerely, Claudia

A message from Claudia More-Milazzo and Chris Dado-Henson who have been planning our reunions for the last 50 years - YIKES:
"Sadly ... This will most likely be our last large, formal reunion gathering. Chris and myself are tired and will be 78 in 10 years and not thinking we will be up to doing it. We are starting to lose classmates and 10 years in-between reunions is too long to wait to see your old friends. And 5 years makes us start working again in 2 years. We are so sorry and have enjoyed doing this for everyone. We urge you to please keep in contact. Now days social media has made this so easy to do. It has truly been our pleasure, Claudia & Chris"
