I just wanted thank all the people that put alot of time and energy into making the 72 reunion an awesome weekend.  I wish it could have lasted longer as I did not get to talk to everyone.  I hope that we can do this again in five years.  Take care.  RJ Wolever

Thanks to Chris Escobar for being the scribe and working so hard to make sure we stayed on task. Thanks to Pat Fox for emceeing the event and making sure we had plenty of raffle prizes.

Thanks to Rod Leavitt for being our Treasurer and keeping us informed of our financial status and writing all those checks . And thanks for the "music trivia" that was alot of fun. Thanks to Eric Ducharme for locating and negotiating with Painted Desert for our golf outing. It seemed like everyone that participated had a great time. I know I did.

We really appreciate it! (Luis said he would help you with the wine selection next time). Hope I didn't miss anyone this time!! Susan, thanks for being a "good sport" for my "name" comment. Public speaking is not my forte'. (obviously,..... right??) My apologies for not mentioning Craig Fabbi and Luis Rodriguez when I thanked the committee members Saturday evening. My sincere apologies to you both. You were both integral parts of everything that we did to put this function on. Thanks again. Committee members, Mike Mushkin, thanks for the Cubans. That was extremely generous. I will think of you whenever I am able to share and enjoy them. Thanks to the "class of 72" for showing up and your participation. For those of you that couldnt make it, you missed a great time. Hopefully, you will be able to attend the next one. I hope all of you had as good a time as I did. It was so great to see you all again! I am already looking forward to the next one. Please check back to the website periodically, we will be posting pictures and other items from the reunion shortly. Thanks Clark High, Class of 72. Please let's all stay in touch! Best Regards, Gary Wood

i was just viewing the slide show. There was a Macayo Vegas poster and that was a blast from the past. I can remember going to lunch there often or off to the Taco Bell with Vicki Stewart in her dune buggy. Disecting in Mr. Zohner's zoology class. Sparking with Scott Burton, riding in Rolin Abrams Lincoln Continental, the zoology trip to San Diego, Grad Night at Disneyland with Robert Bolick. Such great friends. I am grateful for their friendship and have such fun memories of so many people. Oh, how the years go by, we cannot possibly be old enough to be grandparents, can we?  
Wish I could be there to see you all. Thanks for the great memories!

Here we go !
I have been in contact with several California alumni. We are a diverse group as you may learn by flipping through the pages of the 1971 yearbook. (It is the only one I have.) Oh my gosh, did all that really happen? I'll take the Fifth!
Whoever would have thought back then that my hair would turn grey? Not I.   But, there it is.
See you in October.

It is interesting to look back at high school from this distance. I find myself wondering how everyone survived what I am sure have been real challenges, struggles and joy. I am hoping this reunion will be a time to remember easier times...when responsibility wasn't so heavy. When our problems really were how our pictures turned out and if these shoes were right. High school for me was a place I found a voice, it wasn't a very big one, or a very wise one...but it was a pattern for my life. That voice has gotten stronger and I hope wiser! I have laughed at the dumb things I did, felt sad over friends I saw everyday and then not again, and gratitude that I had all those experiences and all those friends. See you all soon.....
