Thank You

Thank you Reunion Planners for putting on such a organized reunion. It was a special and memorable weekend I will never forget. Hopefully at the 50th, I will be able to find Candy Finley and Dianne Day.

Dale and Ruth Johns Alvarado
To my classmates....

First of all, let me thank the organizing committee for the incredible job they did on our reunion - perfect venue choices, brilliantly organized, flawlessly executed. What a wonderful experience!

And then there were all of you - our classmates - by the hundreds, it seemed, at the barbeque and by the dozens at the other events, coming together to touch  a memory, catch up on life, or just give an old friend a big hug. And I was struck more than once by the impression I got of the  spirit of our class, the essence (may I say quality?) of the people I was so fortunate to share San Marcos with.
Thank you all for making it an amazing weekend!

Gary Matlock
Roxanne -

Once more, Thank You for finding me! Gary

Gary Matlock
Well said, Gary!

I completely agree, Gary!   How wonderful to be chatting with Marcia and see you sitting next to her.  O:-))  

I've decided to particpate in more events during the next reunion.  There were so many people at the BBQ with whom I would have liked to have had an extended conversation, if only there had been more time. And others, this means you Ruth, that I missed all together!  O;-)  

In Gratitude!

What a time we had!

Best reunion and weekend ever.  Thanks to the hard work of our orghanizers.  You gave us a gift we shall all cherish.  Loved seeing all you Royals and sorry if I didn't speak to you all.  Believe me your presence was felt. We are a blessed group.

Tom Liebengood
I miss you ALL already!

I wish there was more time to speak with everyone, but I felt your presence, even if it was with only a nod or wink or wave. Back to reailty and work, I catch myself daydreaming about the weekend and the events we shared.  I can still hear the sea lions from our kayak paddle out to the buoy! I look forward to sharing time with you at the 50th.

Had A Great Time!

The Reunion Committee did a fantastic job lining up all the various activities from which to choose.  Everything was so well organized-I truly don't know how you did it, but many thanks!  It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.  I am looking forward to our 50th!  A shout-out to Georgia Pope who rescued my lost earring-thought it was lost to the ages for sure!  Best wishes to all!

Wonderful time

Hi, thanks to all who put together such a great reunion, a wonderful time for all.

Susie Schulze Ried

Susan Schulze

How I wish I could have been there for our reunion,I had hopes to see everyone I knew and catch up as well as get addresses and numbers to keep in  touch. I was in Mn. supporting our youngest daughter as she walk 60 miles for breast cancer in honor of our oldest daughter who was fighting it. She learned about it when she was 6 months along with Gracie. She went throught treatments and Gracie was born a little early but with no side effects and Cristina came out with flying colors after surgery. I hope to see you all on our 50th. Take care everybody hope to see you all in 5 years.

Patricia Bott

Has anyone heard from Patricia Bott? I knew her in 1968 in Escondido, and have recently heard about the passing of her mother.  Mercedes Bott was a very kind lady and I was sorry to hear of her death.  I new Luois M. Bott too, and respected him greatly. I went to Orange Glen High School, and met Patricia through a good friend of mine; Mr. Bob Anderson of OGHS. Patricia was very truly dear to me, and I have wondered, all of these years, what ever became of her. Patricia is a wonderful lady, and I have missed her all of these years.  Thank you for taking this message. All the best to you.

The event will feature a dinner, three bands and door prizes/auctions. 

We also need volunteer help, and door prize sponsors.  You can reach me at 805 284 6523 or here at this site.


I also want to thank the committee, and the class of '67 for having us play for that reunion we did at La Cumbre Country Club. 

I have so many great memories of my friends and times at SM.

Thank you all,

Time goes by too fast!

Please notify me of any reunion events in the future. I am sad I missed this awesome event. If possible, please notify Jon Uyesaka that I would have enjoyed celebrating Mr. Shields. I considered him one of the best teachers I ever had. 

Thank you,

On Jim Ray's Passing...

Such sad news to hear that Jim Ray is no longer with us.  It saddens me greatly, as he was a dear friend, as are many of my Royal classmates, even today. 

It was during our last class reunions that I was able to re-establish contact with Jim and learn about his family and  his more recent experiences, as a chemisty teacher, and what he did with his newly choosen endeavor in private business.

We regularly exchanged emails and  I was looking forward to seeing him again at our next reunion.  My prayers are with him and for his family.

Brian "Ruben" Orosco

Stay in touch or get in touch. I want to see everyone!  September 2017

Looking for Angie Delco

I would love to know what happened to one of my best friends at San Marcos High.  Would love to know if anyone has any information about Angie Delco, class of 67'.

Thank you, Carol

Carol (Spiers) Martin
Thank you and concerns.

First of all I want to say a heart felt thank you to the reunion committee for all their hard work! I know it's not easy putting this all together and having it work.

Secondly, I was looking at the activities planned and am concerned that cost could stop some people from coming.  By the time they pay air fare, motel and activity fees it could be well over a Thousand per person.

I am not criticizing just throwing this out there for consideration. 

I am looking forward to seeing everyone!

Response from the Reunion committee to


Thanks so much for your input on the plans for the reunion.  As you said in your email, it is very challenging to put together an event that meets everyone’s needs while still having something special for our 50th year.  While some of the events planned will cost more than events in past reunions, we are also planning other events which are less expensive and some even free.  In sending out the flyer, we wanted to let people know the dates of the reunion so they could mark their calendar.  We have not yet finalized all of our plans but they will include free and inexpensive gatherings so that as many people as possible can come.  It is also our hope, as mentioned in the flyer, that there may be some classmates who want to make a small contribution to the “kitty” to help defray costs and keep it more affordable for all.

Judy Fielding Lucas and Mark Lucas are in Coos Bay, Oregon

We plan to attend the reunion in September! Hope to see you, Kathy! i am looking forward to seeing so many old friends.

Marcie Bass
Reunion Costs

As a Reunion Committee Member, please know that we are doing everything possible to keep expenses affordable.  We have thoroughly researched and examined all local venues for our planned activities.  As mentioned, some activities are "gratis" and others incur a per person cost.  No way around that.  We are strongly encouraging monetary donations to assist in bringing costs down.  We may make a separate appeal for such donations.  One of our primary goals is to make this Reunion attractive for ALL members of the Class of '67! 

Steve Siry

  Dear Friends & Family~

We want to share with all of you that Leslie passed peacefully early this morning at 4:23 AM. Husband Rick and friend Suzanne were with her. Suzanne's dog, Tory, went to Leslie's side and nuzzled her. She is free and soaring. We feel her presence all around us and we hope you do as well. We all share in the blessings of life that Leslie gave us. In her memory we will carry on with spunk and character and well-being. 

Celebrations of life are pending. We will post a notice here. In the meantime, we hope you will celebrate Leslie in a way that is meaningful to you.

With love,

Rick, Steve, Eric, Suzanne & Robbie

Cheap ways to reunite

Well, still thinking outside the box after all these years -- and always one to find a way to experience things cheaper -- in response to Marcie's comment about how expensive the union could be for some people -- besides travel, the other big expense is lodging at the union.  So first off, if people have time to drive, would you want to pull together a carpool list that people could maybe join.  I know there's several of us up in the Northwest who could join together for a week of road-tripping.   And the second way would be if any of you folks who never left the Santa Barbara area would like to open up your homes to those coming from far and wide, we could have some giant slumber parties on top of all the other activities.  I'm good with any floor -- don't even need a couch -- but I've just always struggled with spending more than $10 to fall asleep for the night, so ... Anyhow, just throwing it out there to see if there is still a little old Sixties hippy blood flowing through anyone's veins.   

Patricia Morgan
It will be here soon!

Getting excited about our upcoming reunion.  I hope as many who can will be there--God knows we've earned the right to celebrate such a momentous occassion. Props to the wonderful group of Royals who meet at Jeff and Dottie Nelson's home, Tami Chapman and all the others, who are making this event happen. Time to make a little extra donation and don't forget to register. 

PS: Don't look for me at the kayak event--not gonna happen again for me.

Marcie's question regarding her passing.  Debby's husband sent an email to, saying that she lost her battle with cancer and died in June 2016.
