If you are going to be in Vegas next week, you’ve got to take in this concert! Our Class of ’63 Sports Queen, Tina, her husband Phil Volk (Fang), members of their family and band will be performing live on April 16th.
I understand Gini is going to take in the show as well. My Vegas trip was too early by a couple of weeks.
The LHS Class of 1966 is celebrating their 50th Reunion this summer. To cap off their reunion, they are holding an All Alumni Gathering on August 21st, at Alondra Park.

For those of you not on Facebook, here are the details for the gathering.
Alondra Park, 3850 W. Manhattan Beach Boulevard Lawndale, CA 90260

Did you know that the sport of Base Jumping started in Hawthorne by Carl Boenish? I didn’t. I came across this in a post on Facebook, so I thought I would share it here for those of you who are not on Facebook.
On January 17th, CNN is going to televise the movie, “Sunshine Superman”, that tells the story of Carl and Jean Boenish.

On September 19th, Gini Yegsigian hosted the the second annual LHS Summer Reunion Party. This year the party was open to the graduating classes of 1961-1964.
About 70 people attended this year, which was a tremendous increase over last year’s group. I suspect future editions are going to be the must-attend event of the summer.
If you were not able to attend this year, there is an 11-minute DVD that will clearly show you the fun you missed. The DVD was compiled and produced from the many photos contributed by several people by Ron Secory and Don Stouder. Those who went to the reunion will be receiving their DVD shortly.
For those of you who were not able to attend, you can receive a copy for $5 by sending a check payable to Don Stouder at the address below.

That’s right, the class list has now been expanded to cover Leuzinger graduating classes from 1961 through 1964.
Also, Gini’s phone number is somewhat hard to read in the flyer. It is (949) 830-3351. It will help us out if you would begin to RSVP. It is not necessary to send any money yet. You can send it later, or pay at the door. We’re just trying to get a handle on how many people to expect.
There has already been a lot of interest. If you are planning to attend from out of town, there are hotels nearby, one quite close to Gini’s house with reasonable rates, the Fairfield Inn.
Gini wanted me to remind all of you about the Class of 62-63-64 Reunion Party she is hosting on September 19th in just three months! Later this summer you’ll get the chance to RSVP. But for now, just mark your calendars.
By the way, if you are in contact with anyone from these classes, make sure they get the word, OK?
