Don't miss another one and don't wait to the last minute to get your ticket.  It's really easy to buy the tickets: Click on the link  45 Year Reunion Tickets in the above header between Home page and Classmate Profiles.  If you haven't register for the website yet click on the classmate profile link and fill in your information.  If your name is not listed send us an email through this site and we'll create one for you.  More detailed information to follow, we want to get the ticket sales going and I have a dentist appointment today and have to get rocking.  Thanks, for the patience.  If you have any questions contact one of the committee members.  

     It’s official, our 45 year class reunion is set for October 3rd, 2020 at the remodeled Rancho Cordova Elks Lodge at 11440 Elks Circle in the City of Rancho Cordova.  Well how is everyone, what's new and  I hope everyone is well? If you're new to the website you can join by clicking on the classmate profiles and signing up.  It's free, easy and a lot of fun!!  It will be the best thing to happen to you in months.  The website runs by your donations.  Keep washing your hands, covering your cough and not worrying about what your hair looks like when you venture out wearing a mask.  

    Everything is pretty much planned for the 2020 reunion.  We have some minor details to work on.  Tom Pollock stepped up this year to take the lead for the reunion committee along with: Karen Teel, Judy Gelein, Carmen Sherman, Duane Fidel,  Jana Pellegrini and Ricky. The usual suspects. The theme name for the 45 year reunion is  "Get Back" (to where you once belonged)! Some of the other ideas were: "You're Still The Same", "Still Crazy After All These Beers" or "We Are '75!" or "Take No Jive, We're Still Alive!"  A friend of mine really liked the one from the 35th reunion "What Happens In Rancho, Stays in Rancho", or (40th) "Back from the Future".  We look forward to seeing everyone there and you will too!! It's a fun and casual night.  Tickets for the event are on sale now with an earlybird discount. I know it's early but we need the financial commitment from everyone to be able to put on the event. The event will probably start at 5pm with dinner at 7:00 pm.  You can still be in bed by 11, if you play it right. What?*  If we can't do the big reunion show (this is me talking, the crew hasn't talked about this yet) because of the Covid19 I'm thinking we can do a "Plan B" party and we can still get together in October?

45 Year Reunion, We Need Your Help! "Please Help Donate To The Fund"

    (Updated 6/2/2020)  Another big "Thank you" to all of the classmates who have made donations so far! We started out with around $600.00 in our reunion bank account last year when we first got together to plan out the 45 year reunion and have received about $1700.00 so far from your fellow classmates. The money is for keeping the reunion affordable, paying for the class website and having a kitty of money left over to put on reunions in the future. Everyone will be about 63 years old this year who knows how many more we'll have? We've had to pay deposits for the event location and for the DJ so far.  At the meeting we discussed how much it will cost/person. And your donation really helps offset some of those fixed costs that we have. The more that attend, the more the costs are spread out. If you have ever put on an event you know what I mean. We have fixed costs for deposits, setup, decorations (we want it to look nice), table linens, insurance, bartenders, DJ $500 (can anyone sponsor the cost or pool together with some friends and help pay for that?) and cleanup.  Any amount you can contribute helps and is truly appreciated. It's fun and easy to do. Just click the link on the right side of the home page--->. The Cordova Class of 1975 website costs about $80/year? We have always tried to keep the reunions affordable to allow as many classmates  as possible to attend.  Furthermore; as in the past, all classmates who are on the reunion committee pay their full share to attend the event.  Any size donation $10, $25, $50, $100, $200 or even $500 or $1000 (Wow, Thank You, you rock!!) will be gladly accepted. Again there is a Donation Button on the right side of the Home page, so click it now and click it often.  It's fun and easy just like voting! Do it early and often. This year will make a big difference.  Any questions you can message any of your favorite reunion committe members.    

 

  Ciao, until next time, Ricky Slama now the official Class of 1975 mascot.

Rancho Cordova news 5/26/2020

tai: "It's not where you start, it's where you finish..."

Only about 10.5" of rain this year. It's hot triple digits the next couple of days.  Folsom Blvd. has been redone from Bradshaw (the last section their working on now) to Sunrise. There will be/are sidewalks and bike lane all the way down Folsom Blvd.. There's a new Girls softball complex built at Mills Junior High. The swimming pool  at the Cordova Rec. Center is being completly rebuilt.  And after 60 years there are sidewalks now in the Malaga, Coloma and Dolecetto neighborhoods!  Ricky turned 63 in May, everyone who bet the under you lose :)... At the virtual reunion on line meeting this weekend we had a time limit and only discussed costs and getting the tickets listed for sale.
