Sharon Chez Salcido ’59 and James Kilgore ’59 began exchanging e-mails regularly following the CHS ’59 60-year reunion in 2019. When they realized they were both participating in a lot of Zoom meetings with various community organizations, friends and relatives, they wondered if they should try it with CHS classmates.

In fall 2020, Sharon sent an e-mail to classmates proposing Zoom meetings. The response was positive, and the first meeting took place in October 2020. It was so successful, they scheduled monthly meetings on the first Monday of the month at 2 pm, beginning December 2020. Classmates are participating from Arizona, Oregon, Tennessee as well as California. CHS ’59 plans to continue Zooming in 2021 and beyond.

In June of 1938; 75 years ago; we graduated from high school. We have had many great times together. In 2008 we had our last reunion, our 70-year. We are all in our early 90s. It would have been nice to celebrate our 75-year reunion in June 2013 but the ranks have decreased.
 
Following are a number of classmates I still talk to by telephone or see or know about.
 
Evelyn Appel Dashiell (we have lunch on occasion); Albert Barnhold; Natalie Barton Winterbottom; John Baumann; Dolores Beck Harp (going to Hawaii for October birthday); Ed Berryman (Alumni Association president); Harold Cochran; Ray Corn; Randall Eastlack; Betty Gage Nehrig (plays 9 holes of golf most Tuesdays); Ella Greenwood McElney; Donald Henry; Melvin Leo; Emma Middleswart Ruebsamen; Mary Ellen Myers Lawhead; Kathleen Patrick Bremner; Martha Peters Nielsen; Dean Raftery; Kay Taylor Pugh; Helen Riley Utman; Arthur Skillman (he visits me most weekends); Charles Smiderly; Louise Thomas Carlson; Chiyoko Yamaguchi Nishimori.
 
That’s quite a group! I’m sure there are others; but I don’t hear from them.
 
At our age; because of health problems; driving and distance; it’s hard to get together. I go through the list of our classmates and think of the special and fun times we had in the past. Happy memories!
 
The Class of 1938 was a great group – 352 of us and I’m so happy to have been a part of it.
