To clarify my previous request....I was referring to photos of Mariners at the Breakfast Club gatherings, the Reunions, the Mixers, etc. hopefully having the names of those folks in the current photos would make it all the more interesting.

So sad to have visited the "Memorial Wall". Some of my close buddies have finished their journey, like; RW Earls, Ron Hillsbery, Chuck Kramer, and some from other classes. I still have my Mar Vista Varsity sweater and it is my most cherished Mariner procession. Good Luck and long live my class of "58.

It's been a long time since last I talked with either of the Woolrich brothers, Gary and Jerry. I hope they are well. They were prominent members of the class of 1967 at Mar Vista High when I was there. If there's any chance, it would be great to see or hear from either of them again--if it's in the cards, that is.

We Lost a great human being tonight in Josh Leslie today who was a graduate of 1990. He was one of the best baseball players to play at Mar Vista who was a backstop at second base and a great hitter. He later went on to play softball and was equally talented at that sport as well. He will be deeply missed. Rest in peace Josh. your sense of humor and your life will never be forgotten.

I just have to share this info. Upon surfing this website and under the "FOUND MARINERS " section, I read my brother-in-laws name, Johnny Apple '58. So I went to his year, located him and right above his picture was, Sandra Alcorn w/ her email address as well as the town she resides in (New Johnsonville TN). That's where I live, I was so excited. I emailed her and received a reply. We met and shared SO MUCH information about I.B.. Actually talking w/ someone who grew up in the same town as you did, who KNEW the old I.B. and 2600 miles away, living in the same town is awesome. Thank you Henry Vargas for your time and ALL you do to make this website what it is.

My email address hasn't changed from what Henry has in the class of 1967 index. We DO NEED AND SOLICIT help and input from those of you still in I B or the vicinity. We want the best, realistic options for our get-together. Anyone who has been to one of our reunions knows that they REALLY ARE A LOT OF FUN. It'll be like meeting old friends for the first time! It is important and it will be worth the effort. Aside from family, friends are the BEST. Get in touch. Get involved. Let's get together.

In my brief message with Jerry Hamilton and Sonja Chesla..I would prefer the Fall of 2017.

A suggestion: Look at the class of 1966 Reunion info and the Reunion flyer.
How do you feel like doing something very similar? Is that too expensive?

Also, aside for m Jerry, Sonja and myself...who would like to be on the Reunion Committee. I am keeping the roster and Sonja is helping me to locate classmates.

Contact me on Facebook: Lynn Robinson
Contact me on Classmates: Jacqueline McCurdy

And here..Lynn email is listed on our class roster.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you. And remember..Volunteer😅💞

I moved back to San Diego about 7 months ago. Good to be back. I was at the last Reunion and it was good to see many faces I had not seen in 20 years since the 30th, and some it had been 52 years or more. And since then a few have passed on. I thank those who put in the time to make a reunion happen.

I think our 50th is indeed a very important reunion. I don't care where we hold it but would like for it to be an inclusive place. Nice but not expensive so everyone who wants to can attend. I have moved since last reunion and I think many other may have too. I can help organize plus so lets get some others involved.

My recollection is that the breakfast club meets at the Fleet Reserve. Someone suggested we hold our Reunion there. What do you think? So far our criteria is low cost, friendly atmosphere, and big enough to handle the whole group.

Jerry Hamilton 1967 |
The last class reunion should be viewed as a wake-up call. They are important and it is important to have as much input and participation as possible. That way we'll have the Reunion that communicates to each and every class member that you are important. Having spoken to several class members I think there is significant interest in getting a functional committee gathered together to start making plans. For several years I've hope for a Reunion that places emphasis on making the primary get-together inexpensive enough to make EVERYONE not just feel welcome but REALLY be welcome. For some of us it will be our last opportunity, for some it will be our first. I care about ALL of you and am willing to do what I can to help make it the best attended yet. My email is still good and I welcome your input and help. If you've had thoughts...feelings...twinges of any kind NOW is the time for ALL good Mariners to come to the aid of their Once-in-a-lifetime-50th-Class-Reunion!

It is so sad to see the memorial wall get more names added to it, but I guess that is what life is about. Some I knew, some I knew of, some were friends and others I just passed by in the hall or outside during lunch. I hope when we have our next reunion (50th) we can have pictures of those that are no longer with us.
