Class member Jane Hills sent along this report:
“Our 60+2-year reunion was a joyful occasion. It was held at the Proud Bird Restaurant by the airport. They were exceptional in their food and decorations.
“Ninety-seven of our classmates attended, [including] from Hawaii, Georgia, Connecticut, Maine, Arizona, New Mexico and Washington.
“We had to have the date [aligned] around the UCLA football schedule because of the loyal UCLA fans, including Jim [E.] Mora, our football star. His son [Jim L. Mora] is now coaching UCLA.
“Truly, love filled the moment in visiting with our classmates. Everyone was thrilled with seeing so many friends.”

It was our 60th reunion held in 2013 that is belatedly being shared. Truly, a wonderful experience.
