What happened to Michele Avis, Andrea Clum, Leslie Bryan, Leslie Steinke, Cliff Nord, Suzanne Reiserer, Maggie Patterson, Steve Hoskins, John Ahmann, Nicky & Nina Farina, Leslie Yaeger, Maggie Patterson and Scott Overton? So many friends from our neighborhood did not attend the Los Altos High School 50th Reunion. Do you know Doug Graham's cause of death?

Happy Birthday Karl! I hope you survived the recent snowstorms. It snowed for a day in Scotts Valley. That was quite unusual! Thanks for helping organize the 50th LAHS Reunion. It was fabulous to see some friends whom I have known since kindergarten. Los Altos was truly a special and safe place to grow up. I think we were all very lucky and everyone turned out so well. Best Wishes!

Hi Audrey:
Happy Birthday! It was great to see you at the LAHS 50th Reunion. I never realized you were so brainy. I was very impressed! I am surprised that you and Ann don't live in the same town, since you were close while growing up as fraternal twins. Best Wishes!

Hi Ann:
Happy Birthday!
I wanted to hear more about your Sierra Club trips, but the LAHS reunion was so overwhelming, I never got a chance to ask about more details. I was also a volunteer Sierra Club leader in Santa Cruz for 15+ years. I led monthly events locally that included swimming, boating, hiking, beach bonfires with sing-alongs, film & speaker events, potlucks, art shows, concerts, I showed environmental films about renewable energy, etc. Allison (Phillips) Klotz lives in Illinois. She visits her mom in Los Altos every few months. I suggest you rendezvous with her next time you are in Los Altos or sometime in Illinois. It was great to see you at the LAHS 50th Reunion. Best Wishes!

Happy Birthday! Thanks for organizing a fabulous 50th LAHS Reunion. You look like you haven't aged a bit. You are an angel, living in Angels Camp. Best Wishes.

Happy Birthday! Did you go to UCSC too? Were you at the LAHS 50th Reunion? It was great and so overwhelming! I didn't get a chance to talk with everyone I wanted to say "hi" to. Best Wishes

Happy Birthday! Do you remember Michele Malone? She was a very good artist. In 3rd grade, she taught me to draw a 3-dimensional box. I was wondering what happened to her. I did not see her at the LAHS Reunion. I'm curious if she became a professional artist, because she was so talented!

Happy Birthday! You have the same birthdate as my brother, Larry. You missed a fabulous LAHS 50th Reunion! Are you still singing? I organized Rise Up Singing Potlucks in Santa Cruz for more than a decade, but I stopped because of the pandemic shutdown. The venues won't host anymore. Stay Healthy!

It was great to see you! I forgot to ask you about NYU, when we were at the LAHS Reunion. I got my Masters at NYU in 1985. (Fine Arts - Drawing & Painting) I lived in NYC 1983-90. Were we living in NYC at the same time?
