Dear Classmate,

On the afternoon of June 4, 1968, you and many of your close friends graduated from East High School.  A few hours later, Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated while campaigning for the Presidency in California.  (I learned about that sad event from Randy Plant, who heard it on the radio of my car while waiting for me to finish saying goodnight to my graduation dance date).  What an abrupt burst of the safe bubble of East High.

Since then, our class has had several class reunions.  The last one was extraordinary.  I wasn’t able to attend, but several who did have told me there was an unusual air of “kinship” as people reacquainted themselves with their old high school friends and connected for the first time with classmates they hardly knew back then. They were surprised to find they had so much in common with people who had lived lives so diverse from theirs over the last several decades. 

Our big 50 Year Reunion comes up the Summer after next.  It will be held on the second weekend of August - AUGUST 10-11, 2018.     We hope it will be an even warmer homecoming than the reunion 3 years ago. As you make your long term plans, please don’t let anything interfere with your attending this singular event.

In our search for missing classmates, we have been saddened to learn that 41 of us have died. We believe we have located all but 57 of the remaining members of our 568-student class.  Their names are on the attached list.  If you have any clue as to how we might reach them, please let us know.  You may email us at or use the “Contact Us” link at our website.

Those of you living far away from East High should know there are classmates here who are so anxious for you to attend, they are willing to put you up in their homes for the weekend.

If you haven’t yet joined the East High Class of 1968 website,, you should.  You can be kept abreast of interesting developments in your classmates’ lives without losing whatever degree of privacy you wish to retain.  Regular updates about our 50 Year Reunion will be posted on this site.  You might even find friends on the site with whom you could make travel plans.

If you have suggestions for what activities the reunion should or should not include, we’d love to hear them.

AUGUST 10-11, 2018.

  • Save the date
  • Help us locate our 57 missing classmates
  • PLEASE don’t miss the 50-year Reunion of

East High’s Class of ‘68!
