SRHS Class of 1998 Reunion

My reunion was Saturday night, and despite fairly low turnout, a run-down hall, and plastic silverware, it was a blast.  Even though I say fairly low turnout, a large number of my close friends from high school did attend.  Many of them brought their significant others that I have come to know over the years.  I would guess there were around 100 people there (including significant others) but I really have no idea.  Darcy fit in with the crowd great and had a good time. 

The event was held at the Druids Hall in Santa Rosa.

In addition to seeing my friends that I have been in touch with since high school, I was able to talk to some people who I hadn't seen yet this millenium, or if I had, it was maybe once or twice randomly, which doesn't count.  Included in that list is Ben Pither, Joe Greaves, Corey McCarthy, and Ryan Smith.  I found out my friend Nick Philbin had moved to Portland with his wife Susan, and saw my good buddy Tim Pollard for the first time in many years.  

As the night got going so did the dance floor.  Darcy was a mainstay on the dance floor as well as many of the significant others who weren't as much about catching up with people but more about just letting loose.  Here Darcy is pictured with former Santa Rosa High School student body president Zoe Gnesda (formerly Zoe Sather) who now lives in Sacramento with her husband James and their two daughters.

Before heading to the Druids hall we met at a bar in downtown Santa Rosa called Stir.  Here's a picture of all the ladies there:

I was reminded why I loved high school so much.  My friends are a fun bunch!  I just hope it doesn't take another ten years for us all get together again.
