VHS 60-YEAR REUNION .......THE DATE IS SET!

Thursday,  February  2,  2017

Our 60-Year VHS Class of 1957 reunion is less than a year away! The reunion date is Saturday, September 16, 2017 and the location will be in Vallejo at Zio Fraedo's Restaurant. Further details regarding the 60-Year VHS '57 Reunion will be provided on this website as we get closer to the actual date, but be sure to mark your calendars now so that you don't forget!!!

To reflect on memories from 10 years ago, take a look at some of the photos taken during the 50-year VHS Class of '57 reunion held at the former Mare Island Officer's Club on a warm September day in 2007. During that afternoon, a reception was held outdoors on the grounds of the club and in the evening, approximately 265 classmates and guests enjoyed dinner, during which the Reunion Committee Members were introduced and greeted with a thundering round of applause. Awards were presented to many of the classmates for their various achievements since graduating from high school. The presentations were followed by dancing, socializing, and reminiscing.

Again just 5 years ago, about 145 classmates and guests celebrated the 55-Year VHS Class of 1957 reunion at Zio Fraedo's Restaurant on the Vallejo waterfront! And, as always, those who were present enjoyed that wonderful event. Let's make the 60-year reunion another memorable occasion!

 


MONDAY UPDATE READER'S PICNIC - VHS CLASS OF '57 HAS MOST ATTENDEES

Friday,  February  3,  2017

Blue Rock Springs Park - Vallejo, CA  

Free Admission and Parking  

The Monday Update Reader's Picnic was held on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at Noon in Blue Rock Springs Park and, of the approximately 80 attendees, 14 were from the VHS Class of 1957. The following classmates from 1957, who once again outnumbered every other class, enjoyed picnicing with family and friends:

Scarlett Asher (Thompson)
Anita Boyce
Carol Briggs (Peterson)
Bruce Christensen
Nadine Colberg (Mottoros)
Bobbie Davis (Weir)
Anna Emge (Scopesi)
John Hibel
Linda Martinez (Morisson)
Deanne Moler (Kulmus)
Margie Menhenett (Pappakostas)
Ron Smith
Gail Speckel (Barker)
Doris Zachary (Waterman)

There were about 20 classic cars on display in the Blue Rock Springs Parking lot for those attending to enjoy. VHS Class of 1957 classmates who brought vintage vehicles were:
Linda Martinez and husband Lane Morrison who displayed their 1949 Cadillac, and Margie Menhenett and husband Jim Pappakostas who brought their 1925 Ford Touring Car.

Many pictures were taken of our classmates, other classmates, and classic cars, and the first pictures were included by Harry Diavatis in the September 26, 2016 Monday Update.

Some of the picture of classic cars and at the VHS Class of 1957 picnic area are shown below.

STANDING ROOM ONLY AT THE VHS APACHE ALUMNI DAY CELEBRATION

Saturday,  February  4,  2017  -  9:00 am

AMERICAN LEGION VETS HALL - 420 ADMIRAL CALLAGHAN LANE, VALLEJO  

FREE PROGRAM AND OPTIONAL LUNCHEON ARE A BIG HIT!  

On Friday, April 29, 2016 at 9 AM, VHS Apache Alumni packed the Post 550 Veteran's Hall on Admiral Callaghan Lane. The VHS Apache Alumni Committee members welcomed alumni from VHS graduating classes dating back to 1939. In attendance were also several alumni from VHS Classes graduating in the 1940s. As in the past, the majority of the VHS Alumni in attendance were from the 1950s and 1960s. Unfortunately, when the roll-call of classes was taken, the VHS graduating class of 1952 squeaked past our Class of 1957 by one attendee; 21 (for 1952) to 20 (for 1957).

During the event, a Vallejo Sports Hall of Fame member, Ed Sowash (VHS Class of 1955) recounted highlights from the various VHS sports teams from the mid-1950s. In addition, there was a tribute made to the 33 VHS graduates who were killed during the Vietnam War, and a memorial Vietnam War Flag was displayed.

After the morning program, during which time the VHS Alumni Band entertained the guests, more than 230 of those in attendance stayed at the Veteran's Hall for a buffet lunch catered by City Lights. Those who stayed for lunch agreed that the food was excellent (and plentiful).

The Apache Alumni Day Committee is looking forward to holding a similar event in 2017 and would like to hear back from those who attended on April 29 any suggestions as to what changes might be appropriate.

Our Class should talk-up the 2017 event with the goal of retaking the attendance award back from the VHS class of 1952! Remember, 2017 is also the 60-year anniversary of our graduation year.

In addition to the following link, if there are additional photos from the Apache Alumni Day event that you wish to add, please email them to: vhsclassof1957@gmail.com
