Cathy, what a beautful article,reminding us about our special past. Those were great days, University Lanes, Campus Drive-in, A&W, ice sliding at Presidio Park after the football games and much more. Remember when it snowed, as we were allowed out of class to see this strange stuff falling all over campus. Your article makes us all smile and proud that we all lived in a time when everyone saluted our flag and stood for our National Anthem. Hope to see you at our 50th reunion!!! George Saldamando

Hello, all -                                                                                                                                                                  

Will be thinking of all of you, as final hours count down to The Weekend That Took 50 Years To Get Here!

Special thoughts going out to Montezuma Elementary, Class of 1962 (you know who you are) - with whom I got to finish 6th grade, and where my own San Diego story began.  The last time (Thank God) I would ever be introduced as "the new girl in school..."                                                                                                               

Hope the weather will have turned nicer, by wkend (it's June Gloom, NOT "Fall Pall")...                                        

Know that I'll be around, in spirit (4 yrs+ cancer-free, BTW...and counting!)...                                                         

Best, Terry S  wink

Sorry you won’t be there at the reunion Terry. But good for you for “keeping your head up” after cancer.  ‘At-a-way’ girl!  -Suzanne Turnbow (Suzie Hill)

As this weekend at last begins, another elementary-school story, if I may...

Three elementaries before Montezuma, there was Arroyo Elementary, up in Pomona (where most of my maternal relatives, including my British great-grandparents - who came to Canada and then California more than 100 yrs ago - are buried)...

My mother (92 yrs young!) and I were there in April for a family funeral; and the next day, before driving back to SD, we went looking for the house we'd lived in and I wanted to see my old elementary school (knew from its website that it was still there)...                                                                                                                            

I must tell you, it was a moment to set eyes on that house and that cul-de-sac again - 61 years to the month since we'd moved into it.  We met the current owner, a very friendly fellow named Kendrick, and showed him the B&W photos we'd brought along from family scrapbooks, that clearly showed the five of us (as we were then) living there.  Only my mother and I still remember it, though (siblings were too young).  He called his neighbors over to see, too!  We felt almost like celebrities.  The housing tract was remarkably intact, and those big shade trees (you need 'em, for a hot Pomona summer!) either were little sprouts or perhaps not even planted yet, back around 1957-59 or so... 

Yes, I promised an elementary-school story.  Here it is: 

From home, I used to ride my bicycle over the then-San Bernardino Fwy (now Interstate 10) every am to get to school; so it was a lot easier with a car and a Triple-A map!  It was a Saturday, so school was not in session as we pulled up.  I was taken aback, to see how mostly-intact it still was, how well it jibed with my memories.  A few things were different, though - notably, and sadly, the black metal fencing that surrounded it, that nobody would've ever thought necessary back then.  Pity.  I would've liked to walk around campus a little...                                                        

As sad as it is, here in 2018, to know that Montezuma is long-gone (though its footprint remains) and Jackson eventually closed (unsure about Darnall, where my sibs also went for awhile) - it's comforting to me to know that at least one of the five elementaries (and one jr high) I went to between nursery-school and 6th grade is still in existance for students to come to, and make (and hopefully keep) friends, and to learn...                                                                                                                                                                       Something to consider, perhaps, about this ever-inconstant world of ours; as this weekend at last begins...                                                                                                                                                                                 Best, Terry S

Nothing really “makes” a 50th high school reunion quite like having Cindi Mitton screaming “SHUT UP!!!” Into a microphone at a room full of her Crawford classmates.

I posted a lot of pictures from Friday and Saturday night on my Facebook. Search for me at Beverly Robbins Lachman. I tagged who was who...just click the tag icon in the upper right hand corner of each picture. Sorry but you’ll have to scroll thru all my other postings to get to the reunion pics.

I didn't realize that if you weren't a FB friend of mine that you wouldn't see the pictures I posted from the Reunion. It's now been corrected so they are public. Look for the Crawford 50 Years Reunion album.

Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for your acknowledment of our efforts. Being on the committee was reason to keep an open eye, and kind of overviewing the whole two days to make sure that it was as good as we could pull off. Everybody on the committee was so commited to doing a great job, and it clearly paid off.
