Welcome to our Grossmont High School class of 1964 web site. Right now it's in a simple form so it works on everyone's PC or Mac. It's a place for everyone to share stuff about our class, fellow Foothillers, and each other. The important thing is that

THIS SITE IS FOR EVERYONE!!

We want this to be a place where we can catch up on what's been happening, stay in touch, and just share stuff — sorta like when we would hang out with friends, or eat lunch on the quad, or see others around school or in classes, or go to dances and football games, or cruise Oscar's and Burger House, or just go to the beach and lay in the sun or maybe pretend we were great surfers.

50th Reunion - Saturday, September 13th, 2014... SUCH FUN!!
What a joyous 50 Year Reunion we had Saturday, 13, 2014 in the Aviary Ballroom at the Catamaran!! The weather was warm and balmy and, by all accounts, all 154 attendees had a fantastic time talking, laughing, listening to 60’s music, seeing old friends, and swapping stories (true and otherwise). The happiness and energy was incredible.

To share our magnificent event with all of our classmates, Ged Bulat created a video using video and photos taken during the event. Click on the title: The Reunion.

Seventeen tables were lovingly decorated with Grossmont-themed settings -- plus, lavish “Memorabilia Tables” created by Kathy (Ziegler) Shedd and her team. Classmates also milled around our “In Memoriam Table,” featuring our “Gone But Not Forgotten” Classmates, collected by Jody (Baumgaertel) Catlin and her team. Throughout the night, DJ Mike Farmer (whom we highly recommend) treated us to music from our era. Bio Books were formatted by Jody and her team for each classmate and printed by Economy Crafted Printing owner Bobby Ursillo (recommended by our own Mike and Terry Mendoza). Two “Door Prize Tables,” replete with 31 different elegant prizes, were solicited, along with ads for the Bio Book by Marsha (Collis) Shea and her team, which included Pat (Diaz) Messina, who hosted a Door Prize Basket-Making Party. Sam Sutherland entertained us all with his Trivia Question extravaganza with prizes. We were also treated to a surprise speech by Luther Burney, who presented large framed rubbings, which he personally made at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC, of classmates who gave their lives in service to our country. Luther is presenting this framed tribute to our Grossmont Museum on behalf of the Classes of ’64 and ’68. Luther also provided us with a personal video greeting, to our class and our 50th reunion, by Astronaut Robert Springer directly from Kennedy Space Center the week before. Click here for this greeting from astronaut Robert Springer.

Classmates were able take a look back at our high school world. Gedimin (Ged) Bulat's incredible two-hour 8-part video montage played on a large screen. Click on a title to view a video: Part 1 - Freshman 1961, Part 2 - Sophomore 1962, Part 3 - Junior 1963, Part 4 - 60s San Diego, Part 5 - Senior Year, Part 6 - 1964, Part 7 - Graduation, and Part 8 - After Graduation

In addition to the reunion, we had a Beach Walk the next morning, followed by a Catamaran Brunch. Several groups of people also had their own pre-reunion and post-reunion get-togethers.

Many thanks to our tireless Reunion Chairs and to our Full Committee of nineteen who, over many months, generously worked and shared expertise and spirit to make our spectacular event a reality. Our four Committee chairs [Jody (Baumgaertel) Catlin, Bill Hoffman, Kathy (Ziegler) Shedd, and Carol (Suggs) Ambrosia]
were joined at-the-hip these last eighteen months, and we all treasure our joyous journey and our close and constructive compatibility. All the committee members really stepped up to the plate; sometimes serving on more than one committee, and providing plenty of ideas and lots of good work. Along with our email blasts and our web site communiqués, engineered by our webmaster, Bill Hoffman, we also divided up our "mailing list" amongst committee members who communicated follow-up emails.

More thanks to all our wonderful classmates and guests who attended and sent in your Bios and photos to help create our memorable Bio Book.

In addition, Carol (Suggs) Ambrosia organized our Class Gifts contributions (Class of '64 Blue Bench, Clock Plaque, Tile), in coordination with Connie and Lynn Baer, of our Grossmont Museum. We enjoyed our several visits to the Museum and Connie and Lynn were very supportive. We were pleased to donate any extra contributions for our gifts to the Museum.

While we are basking still in the joyous glow of having spent such a delightful time with our classmates, there is already talk about another get together next year. More rousing cheers to all of our Classmates of the mighty Class of ’64! Yay!!

    40th Reunion - October 30, 2004: Our 40th year reunion at the Hilton was GREAT! Totally packed -- with lots of conversation and fun seeing old friends. The women were still beautiful (of course!) and the men still handsome and dashing.

    MEMORABILIA:
    We're looking for memorabilia pictures you might want to share. So far, we've gotten some great pictures from classmates who are getting into the spirit and sharing (cheers for their bravery and efforts!). Click here to see galleries/slide shows of their pictures.

    Now we need pictures from the rest of you. Remember, our site is for everyone -- so the more pictures we get, the richer our site will be! There were about 550 of us in our class, so it would be really far-fetched to think that only a handful of us took interesting pictures since our freshman year at GHS. Pictures can be from the reunion, of you and yours then or now, significant events in your life, from our days at GHS, or anything else you'd like to share. Don't be shy. Don't be selfish. Your friends and classmates would enjoy sharing your memories.

    No digital prints? No excuse! Most drug stores, Walmart, and Costco can easily convert prints to digital (JPG format) and put them on a CD at very little cost. Then, all you have to do is pop the CD in your PC and email your newly digitized pictures. As an added bonus, you'll be able to make prints from your CD if your originals are lost or damaged. Please try to keep the size, of each picture you send, around 800 x 600 pixels -- and please don't send more than 5 mgs of pictures in each email or your email will bounce. Now gather your pictures and click here to send them!

    45th Get Together - Sunday June 21, 2009 (2:00 PM)
    Kathy (Ziegler) and her husband Ron Shedd generously invited everyone to their beautiful Poway home to celebrate the 45 years since we left the "halls" of Grossmont. The party was a great success. Perfect weather; relaxed atmosphere; delicious food; and lots of good stories, hugs, and handshakes. THANK YOU KATHY AND RON!! .

    60th Birthday Party in San Diego- October 14, 2006 (5:00 to 8:00 PM)
    It's official...we had our 60th birthday get-together on Saturday October 14!! CAN YOU BELIEVE WE'RE THAT OLD??? It was at the beautiful Marriott in San Diego's Mission Valley. Lots of fun and great catching up. Click here to see one of the group photos. The next day, Jody Baumgaertel had a follow-on party for the "Dining Divas."

    40 Years Plus One Gathering- Saturday Afternoon - October 15, 2005
    Our October 15th gathering at the Mission Bay Hilton was a great success! Lots of fun seeing old classmates, plus lots of entertaining stories from school and and later years. As the sun set, some stayed at the Hilton for dinner while a self-proclaimed "rowdy bunch" descended upon the Old Town Mexican Cafe. Click here to see pictures of the gathering at the Hilton, the Old Town Cafe bunch, and a side party of the "Dining Divas" at Jody Baumgaertel's in La Mesa. Contributing photographers were Jeanie Faulkner, Jill Leland, Jody Baumgaertel. (BTW, Jody wanted to make sure all the women in our class know they are automatically invited to be a Dining Diva. The purpose is to have a fun time swapping stories and laughing at all the stuff that seemed so important back in '64. Contact Jody to find out about the next get together.) Again, many thanks to Mike Hateley, Dianne (Mentzer) Pornish & Steve Hager for all their work in putting this great event together and for keeping our class spirit alive! Stay tuned for more upcoming get togethers, some of which were suggested and "promised" as the evening (and drinks) progressed. Our "collective" 60th birthday party was one of those ideas. Other get-together ideas are welcome!!

    Class of '64, '65, ' 66, and '67 Interclass Picnic on August 16, 2008 (10:30 AM to 5:00 PM)
    The Class of '66 Alumni Committee put together a fun, interclass picnic for all of us in the coolest classes -- all the classes who were at Grossmont when we were seniors! It was lots of fun seeing (and trying to recognize) everyone from the days we were all on campus together!
