Comments: What have you been up to since you graduated?

Enrolled in Cabrillo College after High School. My daughter Christina was born in 1966.
I graduated from UCSC in 1970 and did my teaching internship at Aptos High School. I then moved to Lake Tahoe where I was a substitute teacher until I realized that I had to work on "powder days" ( That was when teachers called in sick.)
I then opened a clothing store called "Tahoe Clothing Company".
Ten years later I decided to leave the mountain and I entered into the Homebuilding Industry. I worked in that field for 26 years and I retired in 2006 when my company was purchased by Emarr Dev. Co. of Dubai.
I married my bride, Barbara, in 1988 and we have been married 26 years and we have two great kids.

Dear Classmates,

It is time for the Mora & WHS Class of 1965 to plan for its 55th Reunion! We all agreed we on 2020 for our next gathering of classmates!

Can you believe it! Time certainly is moving fast. We're all in the 7th decade of our life! I can remember when 70 was so far away it seemed like forever!

The planning committee needs your help to make this reunion the best it can possibly be! How, by listening to each of our classmates and translating your ideas and comments into a wonderful 55th reunion!

The survey can be found on the left side of the Class of 65 website and says "55th Reunion Survey".

This information will be reviewed by the committe who will be meeting shortly to start the planing.

Thanks in advance for your help and we can't wait to hear from you! Please give us your ideas and feedback to make this a wonderful reunion event.

Please take a look at the video by Ken Brownell that summarizes the many meetings of the 50th Planning committee. Thanks again to the 50th planning committee for a great reunion!

Remember the weekend nights at the Starlite Drive-in?......... I have lots of memories as a young boy in the family station wagon and then later as a young man with a young girl having a date! I never let a girl take me to the drive-in on the first date!.......LOL

Violet Jean came finally came home on Christmas Eve with her brother Nash and Mom and Dad. She wanted to get home before Santa Claus so she could celebrate her first Christmas.
What a wonderful Christmas gift to our family. She was born December 22nd.

Grandson Nash sitting on Santa's lap with a little uncertainty. One certainty is that we're waiting for grand-daughter "Violet Jean" to join us and make it the best Christmas present! She was due December 10th and it's now like waiting for Santa to come when we were kids!
