What happened on Sunday, Feb. 9, 1964??

Why that was the famous night on the Ed Sullivan Show when the Beatles appeared.

You can read about it in detail in this article
And That's the Way It Was: The Story Behind The Beatles on Ed Sullivan
by Bruce Spizer
Beatlefan Magazine, Jan-Feb 2004

...and here we are 45 years later and Paul McCartney appears on the Grammy awards singing "I Saw Her Standing There"..the same song that Bob Bishop, Mike Smith, Jim Manning and Dave Sholin lip synched to in the gym for our Senior skit!!

Thanks to Dave for submitting this great article

We have the following thoughts from marsha wilson miner

"As we gracefully age, there are events in our lives – some daily,

some not--that seem to renew our appreciation for what

we have, rather than what we don’t: each new day, family,

the ability to laugh at ourselves, health and especially

high school reunions. For no where else can we magically be

taken back to a time when a” Bart” was a tough guy, an

“Ivy Leaguer” was a cool dressed collegiate – and, in spite

of our differences, respect for one another was ongoing, not rare.

We always have been and always will be “The class with class.” "

Linda Fratto Brewer was named Public Education Person of the Year by Calif Water Environment Assn/SF Bay Section.
