Comments:

I have 4 lovely children and 3 beautiful grandchildren.
My two grandsons (17 & 20) live in B.C. and my granddaughter (16) lives in Oakland, California, with her mother (Juliet)--my first born. My granddaughter is graduating in 2019 from St. John's university in NYC and going on to law school for International law. I'm so proud of her !
My husband and I have a condo in Cathedral City, Calif., area and we travel extensively together. We've been to Europe, England, India and have explored the deserts in California, Nevada, Arizona (Route 66, etc) and the southwestern U.S. since my husband retired 2 years ago. Maui is our favorite tropical spot. For the past few years, I have become an avid snorkeler and have learned underwater photography with sea turtles being my main focus...pardon the pun! I continue my artwork painting portraits, animals, and have created a small blog/web site where I display some of my artwork.
I retired as a Program Officer after 30 years working with the provincial government of British Columbia, Canada. Before those years, I had a successful singing/song writing/music career in the mid 70'sand into the 80's and early 90's. I received a grant to record one of my own songs on a compilation CD with 7 other artists in the id 90s.
Life has been an amazing and unpredictable journey and has included, for me, such adventures as living in different countries, building a large log home, developing a 10 acre hobby farm in the B.C. interior, traveling, having children, grandchildren, building relationships with friends in different countries, volunteering in my own and neighboring communities, and having, for the most part, good health and sanity (or insanity, however one looks at it) thus far !!
I value each day as a gift and know I am blessed to be able to enjoy and share this wonderful world. I am fortunate to be a citizen of the U.S. and Canada and hold similar beliefs as John Lennon's "Imagine."
I love my life in retirement as in the other stages, but still haven't figured out now how I ever had time to work!
"Life (truly) is beautiful"...as the movie depicts...filled with love and tragedy, laughter and heartbreak and, of course, passion.

School Story:

1965-1967 Santa Rosa Junior College
1974-1976 Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada

Hello Dave... it's almost that time of the year again for you! I don't know where the time has gone...53 years since we graduated.. a "blink of an eye" in the scheme of things! How are you these days? Maybe see you at the 55th reunion? I plan to be there if there is one! We are at our home in the desert presently and flying back to BC tomorrow... hope all is good with you and your family.... hugs, Diana.

Thank you, Sally for keeping this site updated and notifying us of any changes.
I look forward to a reunion in 2020 and hope many will plan to attend as in 2015.
We live in our desert home in California from around the end of December through the end of May and I am often there also during some summer months.
If there is anything I can do to help with the next reunion, please let me know.

Just returned from a long trip to the news of the fires in Santa Rosa, also....apparently, Vicky Parker lost her home...so very, very sorry to hear and so very sad for all those who were affected. Such a tragic way to enter a new decade of life having to "rebuild"...On the brighter side, life is most precious and I do hope and pray there were no physical injuries. "Things" are replaceable... people are not.

Hello Vicki
I am sorry to have missed the party last year and I do plan to attend our next reunion. I am wondering if any plans might be "in the works" to date? Will it be the same committee members?
Hope you are having a good summer... Ours has been lovely whether we are at our place in the desert (which we are at present) or at our home in British Columbia.
Looking forward to seeing people from our class of '65 in 2020 !!
hugs,
Diana
