The 45 year reunion set for October 3rd, 2020 at the Elks lodge has been CANCELLED. However; the plan B reunion is on. Because of the ongoing pandemic the class committee has decided to cancel the event. We want to give everyone the maximum amount of time possible to let everyone know. "We just don't know if things are going to be open?" If you purchased a ticket refunds have been sent out.
The Plan B Reunion is on: We're having a 45 Reunion Happy Hour get together on October 3rd, 2020 (same date) at Brookside Restaurant & Bar (brooksiderestaurantandbar.net) at 9819 Horn rd. Sacramento, Ca. 95827 at 5pm. It's where the old Mills Winery was, right across the street from the Rancho Cordova Library. Easy to find. A lot of trees there, nice shady area, a park like setting. We should be able to spread out more and abide by social distancing guidelines. It's a casual event , just like the reunions, stop by eat, snack and mingle and mix as you like. It should be a fun night. So spread the word to yours and our friends. And remember it's free, no coupon or signing up. There's also the class Facebook page where you can find updates. Tom is managing that.
If you have any questions contact one of the committee members. Tom Pollock (lead), Karen Teel (Treasure), Judy Gellein, Duane Fidel, Carmen Scheurer (Sherman), Jana Dodge (Pellegrini) and Ricky Slama (me).
As we get ready for the 45 year reunion/get together, the reunion committee is looking ahead to planning the 50th reunion in 2025! "50's a big number, a beautiful number!"* Everyone stay well and plan for that.

Rancho Cordova news 9/12/2020
Well the 2 big heatwaves have passed us (August & early September). I'm glad that's over! 110 degrees sucks. However, it's smokey like the '70's when they were burning the rice fields. The western U.S. has fires everywhere. You can't really do anything outside. A couple of days ago ashes started falling from the sky around 5:30 pm. I was in the pool last night and started feeling the irritation from the low flying smoke and had to get out.
