The class of 1964 will return to their beloved Santa Barbara High School on October 18th, 2014--50 years later. 

Festivities on Friday will include a football game between the Dons and the Dos Pueblos Chargers @Dos Pueblos High School, and a post-game get together will be at Harry's Plaza Cafe at Loreto Plaza.

On Saturday the alumni will play morning golf, followed by a tour of the high school. Alumni look forward to helping celebrate the 100th Anniversary of our award winning school newspapaper, The Forge.  Later, they will get together for dinner at the Carriage Museum whre they will enjoy Ernie and the Emperors, a band greatly enjoyed at Recreation Center dances, back in the day!  We'd like to have those again!  We will check with Ernie to see if he's interested.

Martha Lanan says, "Our reunion will be exceptional, I’m sure, with so many diverse classmates from out of the country, out-of-state and up and down California returning to celebrate our years together at SBHS. Of course, when we graduated, we couldn’t imagine ourselves 50 years later. Back then we were doing our best to figure out who we were, where we thought we were going and how we'd get there. The weekend will be both sentimental and great fun, and proof that old friendships are invaluable."

Welcome Home!
