EUHS Class of 1971 Reunion … such a lovely note of thanks from just one of our teachers and wives. The note speaks for itself.

Dear Ben (Garcia) & Committee:

Dan and I want to thank you for inviting us to the 52nd class reunion for class of 1971. Hard to believe 52 years and gone by but the memories are all so still very clear. Our meal was delicious and the fellowship with delightful. Seeing all was an eye-opener as we still remember you as kids, LOL.

Sharing the tough times, knowing it is what kept us as a tightknit for the school is what we remember the most, and it was truly as what Jose Barron said your parents were a big part of that foundation. Dan was so happy to see his former students. As for me being the choir teacher for those only two years, never kept me far from that camaraderie . We have always felt that true loyalty to each of you at EUHS. It’s staff students and parents … we were and are truly family! Maybe years ahead be good and healthy for all. And we look forward to another gathering. Make them often as our ages being closer to looking up at the daisies than down at the daisies.

With fond thanks
Nancy and Dan laurenti.


EUHS Class of 1971 Reunion … Whew! What a great time was had by all. We have had many other reunions, but this one was very special to us. We had alumni from out-of-state including Chuck Dimas, Sharon Witty Gonzales and Marshall “Tupper” Carpenter with their significant others. I hadn’t seen Sharon in 52 years … talk about teary-eyed. Hopefully you’ve seen my other pictures of the reunion. John Burgess was there with his lovely girlfriend Joanie, Diane Phillips with her lovely smile, Diane McConnell with that laugh, Marco Galeazzi, Alice Enos Smith and her husband Art, Janice Izosaki Snyder lovely as always, Lindy Miller Cross and many more. We had teachers! We had Vern Gebhardt (Sharon) talk about being in Sly and the Family Stone. We had Dino Cunial (Sharon) talk about the bare bones EUHS in the beginning and what a special group we were. We had Jose Barron (Mrs. Barron) play the fight song on the bugle and talked about how great the students were. We had Coach Lee (Sandy). We had Ed Almaas talk about growing with us as a teacher at East Union. We had Coach Laurenti (Janice) with us as well. We talked about funny times during our years and EU … passing the microphone around the room to several of whom spoke mostly putting all of us into laughter.

Priceless … our Master of Ceremonies was Phil Box! He welcomed all to the gathering while singing keeping us all entertained. Thank you Phil for your commitment to our reunion. We had a raffle where several alumni won money! A very special gift was given to our teachers … wine donated from Delicato Vineyards. Las Consuelas Mexican Restaurant gets high marks of excellence for their food and service.

Perhaps the most important and priceless part of the reunion was taking the last one and one half hours to talk to each other. We were able to have conversations with most everyone who came. These were people from our past of whom we will most likely never see again. There was a lot of laughing and hugging. There were a few that couldn’t come because of Covid, physical pain and loss. Remember now, we are all 70 years old … or most of us.

Lastly, the committee would like to thank our class for being there through all our reunions. There is so much work behind anyone of these reunions. We did the 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and now 52 year reunions. This will be our last reunion done as this committee. Please know we love you all.
