50th Reunion Wrap Up

 

Our 50th Reunion was an event to remember. The festivities began on Friday afternoon with a tour of Redwood.  We had about 30 Giants attend and we were greeted at the flag pole by our classmate Karen Roby Barrett, retired library assistant at Redwood.  Sue Chelini from the Redwood staff led the tour of the campus which is not the school we went to!  My how it has changed with a 16 lane pool, new photography building, art studios.....the list goes on.  The good news is....they kept the tile and lockers in the hallways after the remodel.  We ended our tour in the library with a 16mm movie of the building of Redwood which was facinating. A big thank you to Karen & Sue.

After the tour we peeled out of the parking lot for our respective "Happy Hour" events around town.  Check out the photos in the Gallery for each event.  If you have photos to contribute, please go to the site where you can follow the uploading instructions.  Or.... email them to Nancy, nnaltman@me.com and she will take care of it.

On Saturday, the worker bees arrived early to the Bocce Ball Park in pouring rain.  Not what we expected in September!  However, the park is beautiful rain or shine.  Lombardi's Catering from Petaluma did an amazing job and managed to secure two tents for us.  They were also doing an event for 700 in Napa that day!  At least we had an indoor spot to gather until the rain stopped.

Also, a big shout out to everyone who pitched in to run for ice, pick up balloons and dry off tables and chairs.  Your help was greatly appreciated.  As classmates were arriving, the BBQ was fired up, the bar opened, the music played and the sun came out and we were able to take the party outdoors!  The showers didn't dampen our spirit and we have lots of photos to prove it.  

We stayed at the park from noon till 6 when they finally had to kick us out.  I think that is a good sign that Giants still know how to party!

A big thank you to all who have so generously donated to keep our site up for the next 10 years!  We will do our best to keep it current and hopefully see you all at our 60th!  

Your committee members,

Carole, Jackie, Lillian, Linn & Nancy
