Class of 1961 Redwood High School  
Larkspur, CA

I hope everyone continues to stay hunkered down and safe, with people to help with groceries and other necessities. We seem to fall into the category of OLD and this pandemic seems to be with us throughout 2020 and into 2021. Schools are not opening in person, the virus continues to spread with new strains following close behind. This definitely has not been a good year but...

We have to look for the positives... time to read, create, clean closets and drawers. I know we've done it for our parents but who knows what we're hiding!  Reach out to family and friends via phone, Facetime, email and even letters. We are not alone. The entire world is being challenged by this invisible virus. Be kind. Be Safe!

Turn on your speakers...

And from John Sailer:
Playing for Change

I posted this in May but it still holds true... it's just that we will have to wait for hugs and kisses a bit longer.

History will remember when the world stopped
And the flights stayed on the ground.
And the cars parked in the street.
And the trains didn’t run.

History will remember when the schools closed
And the children stayed indoors
And the medical staff walked towards the fire
And they didn’t run.

History will remember when the people sang
On their balconies, in isolation
But so very much together
In courage and song.

History will remember when the people fought
For their old and their weak
Protected the vulnerable
By doing nothing at all.

History will remember when the virus left
And the houses opened
And the people came out
And hugged and kissed
And started again

Kinder than before.

Donna Ashworth
(Thanks John!)

60th REUNION ???
Plans are on hold until we know we can be safe together but we will do something! You can certainly reach out to our classmates on Facetime and Zoom! If you have any other creative ideas, let me know.

This site is much more active than our class site, has teacher profiles where you can leave memories of your favorite teachers, read about distinguished alumni in the Avenue of Giants and Athletic Hall of Fame,  and look up other classes besides our own. Minimum needed to join is your email address. Thanks! And thank you to all who have already joined!

OUR '61 WEBSITE
Special thanks to those of you who made redwood61.org donations. There is a good chance that we will not renew it when the five year term expires. If you could transfer your information or update your information on the www.redwoodalumni.org website above, we will still be able to reach you. We can send email blasts to just our class but you will have access to all classes and teachers. THANK YOU!

NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL OCTOBER 1, 2020 FOR THE NEXT ROUND OF DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI... ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME, AVENUE OF GIANTS!
Our class has a great representation in the Athletic Hall of Fame but it's time to nominate other distinguished classmates for the Avenue of Giants. The induction banquets have been cancelled for 2020-2021 because of Covid 19. You can get all the details and nomination forms on www.redwoodalumni.org.

REDWOOD ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME  INDUCTED 1959 SWIM TEAM (2016)!
Each year the Redwood Alumni select distinguished alulmni for the Avenue of Giants (AOG) and the Redwood Athletic Hall of Fame (RAHOF). In 2016 the RAHOF decided to add a TEAM category. They chose to honor to the very first team at Redwood to win an MCAL championship...the 1959 Swim Team coached by Paul Daly. Our classmates on the team include Jeff Skov, Keith VonBorstal, Paul Burgess, Mike Spencer and Dick Chambers! Congratulations!
