Update: I just signed up a band, The Casuals, Point Arena, for our listening and dancing pleasure. They will play after dinner, 7 to 10.
Dinner update: at 6 PM, Chicken Marbella, with noodles, green beans with snap peas, salad, bread and butter, and cake.
Please don't delay signing up and sending me your checks. The sooner, the better for entertainment, dinner, bar, setup, and cleanup.
Our next Point Arena High School Reunion is scheduled for August 24, 2015 (Monday) in the Gualala Arts Center, $50 per person (please make checks to Mike Combs, and mail to PO Box 1639, Gualala, CA 95445), so please mark it on your calendar. Invited classes are 1972 back to the "beginning of time." I mailed invitations in my 2013 and 2014 Christmas cards, and in early March mailed almost 200 postcards to everyone for whom I still have addresses. All Pirates can help by contacting classmates and schoolmates about the reunion.
Please email me your biographies and updates to the your biographies already posted, Photos are appreciated, too.
The notices I've sent out seemed a long time ahead of schedule, but here it is, almost Reunion time, and I already wish I had more time. Keep checking here for updates, and for the photos of our 2010 Reunion that Dale Mason generously provided.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Joyous Easter, and all other felicitous occasions!

Bio for Bernice Munton Williams
After graduation in 1950, I got married to my wonderful husband, Henry (Hank) Williams; we had 2 children, Gail and Paul, and lived in Sacramento for 19 years. During this time we went camping at the Lake Tahoe area very frequently to get away from the hot weather. Hank’s job then took us to Sierra Vista,Arizona where we have lived since 1970. I received a teaching degree from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a major in education and art and a minor in music. I taught 2nd and 4th grades, art in high school and loved it very much.
Because of a heart problem, I retired early and became active in the local art association. I painted mostly landscapes using oil paints, sculptured mostly Southwestern Indian figurines in clay. Hank and I made jewelry mostly using the “lost Wax” method of casting sterling silver jewelry. We’d also go rock hunting with the local gem and mineral club. Every October, I would sell the art pieces I made at “Art in the Park”, which was once a year.
I joined the local chorus (100 members)and have been a member for 12 years. I enjoy singing at the “rest homes” and also 4 major performance for the town with this chorus. I also sing with a small group within this chorus – we call our group “The Souvenirs” – there are 7 small groups within the large chorus. We have a great time. Hank and I bought a motorhome and always traveled during Arizona’s hot weather, all summer long. We’d always go to the National Parks: going up through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and sometimes go into Canada (the Canadian Rockies), Washington, down Calif., (of course Lake Tahoe) and then
home to Az. We did this for 18 years and loved every minute of it.
We were married 63 ½ years, and then my husband passed away this year May 8th. Our son lives in Washington and will be escorting me to the reunion.
