Our 2005 reunion in Rankin Park

Our last reunion was held on August 21, 2005 in the Olive Grove Group Picnic Area of Rankin Park in our hometown of Martinez. Over 100 classmates, families and friends gathered on a simply beautiful summer day for a catered picnic in the Park.

The event opened with registration, hugs and small talk. David Rich opened the program and welcomed the Class of 1973. This was followed by Pledge of Allegiance to our flag and an opening prayer and grace.

We had an excellent meal provided by Catered with Care of Vallejo. The main dish consisted of BBQ Chicken and Italian Sausage; served along with Potato Salad; Baked Beans; Tossed Green Salad; Veggie Dip and Chips; Dinner Rolls and a delicious tray of home baked Brownies for dessert.

Lunch was followed by classmates offering a tail of their days at Alhambra and updates on what has happened in their lives since we walked off Knowles Field so many years ago. It was truly a day of good food, excellent company, and love. It was a day of remembering and laughter, shared by all.

Our photographer Fred Botha took over 200 pictures which are posted on the page linked at the bottom of this article. That section is password protected. If you attended the reunion you received your password. Sierra Morning Website Design places the highest priority on the privacy of the members of the Class of 1973. We feel that it is not appropriate for the entire world to have access to these pictures. We also feel that those who paid to attend the last reunion paid for these pictures and they alone have the right of access.

The picnic and program started at noon and lasted until 4 p.m.
