ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

                      Welcome To The  

                           Cordova Class Of 1975  

                      "Official Website"

 

 

                  Hello Cordova Class of 1975 classmates!

                         "Happy 49th Graduation Anniversary!"

How is everyone?  I hope you're doing fine?  June 2024 will be the 49th anniversary year of graduating from Cordova High.  What a long strange trip it's been, the journey continues. By now we're all across the universe! The big 50 Year reunion planning committee will start up pretty soon to celebrate 50 years since graduation.    

     Stand by for updates to the website.  (Today is 5/21/2024) I'm Ricky Slama and I have been updating the website and keeping it going for the last 20 plus years.  I thought I could get it done pretty quick but I haven't been on here for awhile and there really hasn't been anything new to report but it's time to clean it up and update some of the information.   I'm kind of a one man band here doing it and keeping up the website and trying to keep it relevant between Class Reunions.   Hello to the new classmates who have signed up.  Like many of us I'm turning 67 in a couple of days and my wife Cheryl and I have another "trip of a lifetime" coming up to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.  So in the next few weeks things will hopefully be updated?

   I also update the "In Memory" section of classmates who have passed away, and as you can imagine I receive a posting from classmates that someone has passed and I like to get some verification that they are sure the person did pass away.  Last year a classmate sent a message saying someone passed but you didn't signup for the website and I tried emailing you back because I found they might be alive in Elk Grove? But your email address kept getting kicked back as undelivered so please sign up for the website.  You can go to your name, signup and in the preferences indicate how you want your information made public or not.  

    Here is some old information I'm leaving up....

  If you just found the website "Welcome my friends to the show that never ends" and congratulations on finally gettting on the internet*.  Sign up and stay informed to upcoming class reunions and classmate updates and connections.  Check out the Cordova Class of 1975 Facebook page for current news and updates also.  Also, if you would like to donate to the website and to the 50th reunion fund that would be great and appreciated.  The next reunion will be a big one, 2025 the 50th Class Reunion "RUST NEVER SLEEPS"!!!   You probably want to  know when and where it's going to be and who will be  attending.   Well stay in touch.  Keep your information updated and check back for updates.  And make the commitment to attend the 50th reunion!   We'll start planning the 50th around the summer of 2024 with plans for the 50th reunion in the summer or fall of 2025?  Everyone should be about 68ish and I would anticipate you'll have plenty of free time.  It'll be a good time, it always is. 

  The Reunion committee is: Tom Pollock (the lead), Karen Teel, Carmen Scheuer (Sherman), Leslie Nye has joined the group and Ricky Slama.

  If you're new to the website and the internet and wonder why "no one has ever called me and invited me to a reunion," sign up under classmate profiles and keep your email address updated.  It's 2024 we don't know where you live or your phone number now.  Spread the word.  

     

   Ciao, until next time, Ricky Slama the official and unofficial Class of 1975 mascot and keeper of the Class of 1975 website.  I'm now also a Grand Master of Freecell, Sudoku, Centipede, Ms. Pacman and Pong and now The Daily Jumble has taken over my life!
