The Santa Rosa High School 50th high school reunion, my class of ’64, was last weekend. What a fun event. More than a third of our graduating class of 378 students participated in the weekend long event that included a grad night, a tour of the high school, and a dinner. And, at the dinner, my table won the Beatles’ memorabilia quiz, so we each went home with a bottle of Zinfandel. Plus, I was the first one to blurt out the significance of the date, February 9th, 1964, the Beatles’ first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, so I won another bottle of wine. So, do you think I might be a Beatles fan?

Here are a few of the photos I took at the tour of the high school and one cell phone shot at the Saturday night dinner when the school’s original Pandy mascot made a surprise appearance. The SRHS “Pandy” no longer looks like this so it was fun to see our school mascot as we remembered him, usually played by a “her.”

  1. My wife, Gabrielle Krueger, also a Placer Camera Club member, graduated from San Mateo High School on the SF Peninsula in 1959. Their colors were Orange and Black and the schools nickname was the “Bear Cats”. Even the facade of the school looked similar to Santa Rosa High School, so it could have been a popular style of school architecture at the time.
