Sequoia '59 ...
59th reunion website
for the Sequoia Class of 1959

Dear Classmates ...

We're breaking the mold this time!  Instead of waiting for our 60th reunion, the committee found it fitting to plan a 59th reunion for our Class of '59.

Here are the details:

DATE:  October 6, 2018
TIME:   5-10 pm
PLACE:  Redwood City Women's Club, 149 Clinton St. Redwood City
     5-6 pm     Happy Hour
     6-8 pm     Buffet Dinner
     8-10 pm   Conversation & Catching up!
                   (We must vacate by 10 p.m.)

COST:   $ 35/person

IMPORTANT:  While we do not think we will exceed it, the Women's Club has an absolute limit of 100 persons.  To be sure you are one of them, please send your check made out to "Sequoia Reunion Committee" and mail to: Kathy Bartole Shaw, 6416 Grand Meadow Lane, San Jose CA 95135.  Please put your email address/telephone number on your check and you will receive confirmation that your payment has been received and that you are on the attendees' list.

We will attempt to keep this website current, beginning over the next few weeks by updating the 'In Memoriam" page.  We have lost several classmates since the 55th, and we know you would like to have that information.

If you need to contact us, you can reach Kathy at 408.270.4026 or Barbara Lindeman at 530.802.5055.

Also, we want you to know that this will be the final reunion organized by your Reunion Committee, which as had a ball putting together the 10-, 20-, 30-, 40-, 50-, and 55-year reunions for the class.

The good news, however, is that we will continue to set and communicate dates for an annual get-together at Harry's Hofbrau, 1909 El Camino Real in Redwood City.  This is a format many classes have chosen at some point, and it has proved to be a successful formula.

Looking ahead, we have scheduled a no-host luncheon at the Hofbrau for Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 11 am TO 2 pm. Food and beverage can be purchased, of course.  If we have 25 attendees, we can have a designated room.  A reminder will be posted on our website ( by mid-January 2019.

As you wait for our 59th in October, you might enjoy going to that website and reading the Memories emails from classmates sent prior to our 50th reunion in 2009 (How time flies!!!)  Also, we have maintained the In Memoriam list, which includes the names of several classmates who have since our 55th reunion.

We look forward to seeing you in October. Stay well!

Your Reunion Committee,
