Class of 1960, Fiftieth Year Reunion

Help the Class of 1960 celebrate its 50th reunion in style!

Since there were only 27 in our class – we were the biggest class graduated up to that time, however – we would like to fill up the Gualala Community Center by inviting everyone from the Class of 1964 and earlier to celebrate with us.

The date will be Saturday, September 18, 2010.

Time: 4 PM until probably 11 – we’re not as young as we used to be, although we think we are.

Beginning at 4 there will be munchies and drinks, and a couple of hours to meet and greet, chat, and reminisce.

We’ll dine at 6 – dinner catered by Leslie Bates, who has done a great job for the Gualala Lions and others over the years. Cost will be $35 per person – mail checks to me: Mike Combs, P O Box 1639, Gualala, CA 95445. For more information call me: 707-884-3741, or better yet, email me:

Our no-host bar will be provided by the Point Arena Knights of Columbus.

We’ll have a DJ and dance to the music of the 50′s, but that will come about an hour after we finish dinner. The primary thing we want is lots of socializing – telling tall tales and life histories (often one and the same).

More details and features will be added on this blog as developments warrant. I have been posting biographies as they come in. To view all the biographies, just click on the label "Biographies" at the upper right side.
