Time to crank up the band and make some noise about West Covina High School Class of 1963. We are having the 55 year class reunion in Cathedral City: October 26th - 28th. That Saturday night there will be a dinner and dance. Mark your calendars, Classmates.
Details will be revealed as soon as Sue does the deal.

I haven't blogged here since our 50 year reunion. Now Sue Hunter is planning another for our 55th. That will be in 2018 and probably the same venue as the last in Palm Springs. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we had 100 classmates attending!

Five years ago I jumped in to help organize our 50 year class reunion. Along with Sue Hunter, Bill Kouri, and Warren Schifini we set about establishing phone and email contacts with classmates to build interest in the event. The sad news was that we found many members had died and most of the class was unaware. I decided that we needed to memorialize those and all classmates who have left us.

Classmate Tim Robinson and son Brian have made quite a name for themselves in what started as a hobby for Tim - classic wooden boat restoration. Robinson Restorations is now restoring a speedboat once owned by Henry Ford. Click on the link to read a great article on Tim and his boat work ... Woody Boater

Team Go Bill

My classmate, Bill Sabatino is battling for his life. He has a rare form of leukemia that requires a stem cell transplant. A compatible donor needs to be found. If you or someone you know are between the ages of 18 and 44 then maybe you or they can help by joining the Be The Match registry.

 You are only asked to donate cells if you come up as a match to a patient.  The process is painless and easy:

There are two types of marrow donation, a peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donation and a traditional marrow donation
 - 75% of the time, patients need a stem cell donation, which is similar to donating blood.  This is what Bill needs.
 - 25% of the time patients need marrow cells, which the doctor draws from the donor’s hipbone. You should not experience pain.

 Melanie Wong - WCHS ASB office responded to my query as to how the Mike Okura Memorial Scoreboard fund is doing. As I recall the needed sum is $75K...long way to go

"We are still under $15,000 I believe. I am forwarding your email to our committee contacts."
