Gladys Mary (Jaye) Apcenski (Munger) (1960)
With so many of us relocated around the US and overseas, maybe we should just have a "LAST CALL REUNION" for all of us who have NEVER had a chance to come ! Now, that I finally moved back to California, from living overseas, and in several other states ( NO, I was NOT in the "Witness Protection Program", just married to 2 Air Force pilots !!). so, here I am in Sacramento, just in time for the 50th reunion of the class of 1960, and I was too sick to come !!So, maybe, let's try for a "GENERAL REUNION", around Homecoming time. The weather is wonderful then, and hotel and Air Fares would be more reasonable. We could have lots of activities planned, to make a long trip to the "old stomping grounds" worthwhile, considering the expenses involved for "out of state" travelers X2, most of us in the 1959-19?? Classes may not be fortunate enough to have any parents or family members, still living in San Diego, that they can stay with ! So,we'd all be coming to see the town, and just like any tourist, we'd want to see "the sights". Of course, we'd like to see how it's grown, and all the new places and old favorites, ( like the official MAKE OUT SPOT OF CRAWFORDITES, ALVARADO ESTATES DRIVE, ah, the twinkling lights over the city !!) SOO much to take in ! Our old Air Force Squadrons have huge reunions, and people fly in from all over the country. The reunions are usually planned over the Internet, and we have a GREAT TIME ! Locations such as Las Vegas, Phoenix,Albuquerque, and San Antonio. As you can see, we try to stay near the middle of the USA, so everyone has a somewhat equal distance to travel ! San Diego is a WONDERFUL RESORT CITY, we could charter a Sailing Yacht for a Bay Cruise ( they hold up to 80, and can be partially group chartered too) They have lunch available,or BYO, and BYOB,too ! There's "Seaport Village" "Old Town" and does the ferry to Coronado still run ? We could tour the "old lighthouse at Point Loma", Balboa Park on a Sunday, when the "little villages of the world", are open ( if that's still done) and there always used to be a concert in the Band Pavillion ! Maybe a play or a concert, as a group event, and of course the big Banquet, at the hotel where we all might ALL be staying. A "Silent Auction" or similar fund raiser, at the banquet, and donate proceeds to the school. With a large number of room rentals, most hotels will throw in a "Hospitality Suite", where smaller groups could meet for cocktails, before heading out to dinner ! I know it can be done, as I've helped in the planing, and attended several, over the past 25+ years ! Anyone interested in exploring the possibility of a large reunion of this type???
