2017 LHS Summer Reunion Party

It has been quite awhile since I posted anything new on this particular blog. But just in case anyone still monitors it from our class or other LHS alumni, I want to let you know the latest regarding this year’s edition of the LHS Summer Reunion Party hosted by Gini Yegsigian and coordinated by Ron Secory (62) the past few years.

The date has been set – October 7, 2017.

Here is the latest info from Ron. For those of you who are familiar with this party from previous years, note we have expanded the years to include the Class of 1965. So this year, the last year it will be hosted at Gini’s, classes from 1961-1965 are invited. That basically maxes out Gini’s home for the expected number who will be attending.

Here is the latest flyer.


Below is some additional information from Ron.

Hello Classmates,

My first note is to say that we have not heard from anyone in the ’65 class. The contact I had from Juliene has not responded to my email. So if anyone knows who is the contact point for ’65, please have them get in touch with me.

I have attached a flyer for you to send with your emails to your class. There will be more details on the next one about “The Hills” hotel where Gini is coordinating to block a dozen or so rooms for LHS people. Out-of-towners loved this and we had 10-12 people stay there last year including myself. They discounted the rate by about $20 per night. The hotel has a bar, restaurant and dance floor and we all meet on Fri night for a fun pre-party. Please include this info in your email to classmates.

Important items to note:

  1. This is the last year at Gini’s home. There may still be parties after that (we hope) but none at her home. A big thanks to her for hosting this for 4 years. So don’t miss this one.
  2. 2-3 more flyers to come with more details as we plan. Just look for them as we will spread them out.
  3. As I have been in charge of trying to keep track of those coming and those not; those who have paid and those who have not…we are changing the procedure slightly. As is mentioned on the flyer, we want all payments/checks to go directly to me instead of Gini. This will make it easier for me to tally. Please point this out in your emails.
  4. Any information, concerns, or questions can be sent directly to Gini or me if you like.

Hope to see all of you there.

For those of you who have not attended previous Summer Reunion Parties, you have really missed out. Ask anyone who has attended in the past, and they will definitely confirm that this is one LHS alumni party you do not want to miss!


Hope to see you all there.

Take Care,

Don Stouder(63)



Ted Leverette for President

I received this email from Ted, regarding the 3rd Annual LHS Class of 1961-1964 Summer Reunion Party.

It is too early for me to endorse any candidate yet. 🙂

I wish I could be there but this is keeping me busy!


If you’ve had enough Electile Dysfunction, support Ted J. Leverette for president!

Feel free to share this with our classmates.

This is my new email: tedjleverette@comcast.net

Best wishes,

Ted Leverette


Base Jumping Started in Hawthorne

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.

Steve Cirillo Passed Away

I just received word via Facebook that classmate, Steve Cirillo, has died suddenly of a heart attack. He will be missed by those of us who had the pleasure of knowing him in high school and were able to stay in touch with him throughout the years since then. My personal condolences to his sister, Linda.

Great Video of the Stones From Gerald

I believe that Gerald missed his true calling as an event photographer. The Stones are still a great R&R band.

Per Gerald: 

Barbara and I went to a Rolling Stones concert with some friends last week.  They, like us, are getting a bit long in the tooth but they put out a great concert.  Here’s a link to a slideshow I put together of the event.


Very Sad and Tragic News

Dear Don:

Thank you for your welcome words for my loss.

Please send my note to others to help us all to love and live in the moment

and to love our family and friends.

Peace, Suzye

Dear Friends:

On Tuesday, April 7th my beloved husband and best friend died from a brutal beating during a major robbery

In our Bed & Breakfast.  He would want you remember him with a smile and a light heart and when you play the

Porgy and Bess CD in your home.

Peace and Love, Suzye
