For people who attended Crawford High School or would have attended if they hadn't
moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

March 6, 2015

IT'S GETTING LIGHT IN PACIFIC BEACH.  I'm looking forward to Machaca con Huevos at the Waffle Spot.  It's not on the menu, but Beto says he'll make it for me and Nancy.

The March 2015 newsletter is in the mail.  Those of you who subscribe should be on the look out for your copy.  Those interested in subscribing can click HERE for more information.   Class of '65 members are on a March-March billing cycle so you should be getting your renewal envelopes.  I used to send them to all members for which I had addresses.  Now I'm just sending renewals to those who subscribe.  See the above link if you didn't get a renewal envelope and would like to subscribe to the 12-page quarterly publication.

I snagged a couple of photos of the U S Grant Hotel off Greg Lee's Vintage San Diego Facebook page.  They appear to have been taken in the early 1950s.  Click HERE to check them out.

“You all know I ‘went to the dogs’ many years ago,” says Londa Galley Warren ’62.  “Earlier this month I was honored at the National Bird Dog Museum in Grand Junction, TN, for my work in training, competing with and furthering the cause of the Irish Setter in the competitive field-trial world.  Here's a photo of the presentation of my Life Patron award.”

The Class of '65 Reunion Committee has respectfully rejected my offer to donate five unused '65 Centaurs.  They were given to me by Original Yearbook Advisor Jesse Morphew and I thought the committee might like to use them as door prizes at their upcoming 50th Anniversary Reunion.  Apparently not.  If you are interested in purchasing one, I am charging $50 each -- all monies to go to the Crawford Yearbook fund.  

Speaking of the '65 reunion, George Troutman asked if the King's Inn would be offering Colts a deal for the weekend of September 25th.  The hotel will offer rooms at a price of $65.00 per night plus tax if at least 10 people make reservations.  Check with me first.

Scott Shaw '68 said yes to getting the Fry Day emails again, and attached the above artwork.  Says Scott, "This is one of my contributions to Rhino's Grammy-nominated CD/DVD boxed set, WEIRD TALES OF THE RAMONES".

The memorial service for Jane Rudeen Marus will be held on Saturday, March 7th, at 11:00 a.m. at College Center Covenant Church. A potluck reception will follow.  To celebrate Jane's sense of joy, attendees are invited to wear silly hats and wigs if they are comfortable doing so.  College Center Covenant is located at 4463 College Avenue, San Diego 92115. (The parking lot is on Tarragona Dr.)
