Sad News: Dan Yee passed away May 22, 2022.
Reunion plans are now "in abeyance." Stay tuned!
Dan Yee's own handwritten "Life Story"
Dan Yee tells me that August 5, 2023 (Saturday) will be a good date for Richard Hom and the DulTones to entertain us at our 60th Reunion. The reunion luncheon will take place at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center on 19th and Sloat (across from Stern Grove) in San Francisco. It will be salad, entree, and dessert. More details about the 60th Reunion will be forthcoming in the months ahead. Dan said: I just started finding a place because many halls are closed and will not open again due to the pandemic.
Old News (May 2020):
Dan Yee sent me this email today: "The Party we planned for our 75th Birthday celebration in 2020 will need to be cancelled. We can have our 60th Class Reunion in 2023. All reservations will be refunded. We can ask the DuTones to do the entertainment in 2023." It is unfortunate that the Year of the Rat did not turn out to be a "propitious year" after all. Nor was the number 75 such an auspicious number for us during this Coronavirus Era. Wishing everyone a safe, healthy journey on the rest of the year.
BREAKING NEWS ( March 14, 2020) -- Due to the "National Emergency" regarding the Coronavirus, Dan Yee and the planning committee have postponed our 75th Birthday Party until summer (or fall). Stay tuned for further announcements.
Previous Announcement -- Update (Feb. 24, 2020)
It's Official -- Dan Yee has made reservations for the Harbor Villa Restaurant. (Nov. 7, 2019)
Dan Yee wants to get the ball rolling early to inform our GWS'63 classmates of the upcoming 75th Birthday Party. So I will post the registration form and the menu on our class announcements page (and on the reunion page) for all our classmates to see -- and download a registration form to send to Dan Yee (with the money). Spread the word to classmates who don't have access to Facebook (or a computer). Since the official registration date -- as designated by Dan Yee -- starts on Nov. 8, 2019 and ends on March 28, 2020, there's plenty of time to think about attending and arranging necessary plans. So click on the following link to get your registration form:

UPDATE: May 3, 2018 --
Noah Griffin's performance at our 55th Reunion was "awesome." An entire webpage is devoted to the songs Noah sang (with the help of his accompanist Ed Bogas).

In the words of Noah: "We put a lot of work into the performance. Aside from researching the hit songs from each year from 1960, 1961, 1962 and 1963, which ones I sang at rallies, we had two hour long rehearsals. I read two books on the Richmond, its history and development. Incorporated personal memories of teachers, proms, events, dances, movie theaters and class notables."
