Here are some comments from our classmates on what they thought of the Burbank High Class of 1968 reunion:

When I was asked how the reunion was, on a scale of 1-10, I said definitely it was a 10! We enjoyed every minute and want to thank the Committee for the time and effort that went into the success, from concept to completion. (Louise Good Hernandez)

Such a wonderful evening! Super fun catching up with old friends at the reunion! (Karen Parrish Rapport)

We had such a great time. Can’t wait until next time. Fun fun fun! (Carol Stephenson-Walter)

Thomas Jefferson alumni

A special thank you to you and your committee for a very lovely evening for the 1968 Class Reunion. The location was so pretty and the thoughtful details to the evening made it so much fun.  The name placards started many conversations with those we knew and those we didn’t and it was so nice to meet new interesting people that I hadn’t known in high school.  The video was so creative and the décor with the blue and white and pretty centerpieces (I won the one at our table!) added to the festive evening… Thank you again for all of your hard work.  I appreciated it so much. (Tina Anderson Hughes)

Thank you for ALL that you did for our reunion. Great time! (Debbie Myers Schmidt)

A big thanks to all the people that put the event together—it was a blast. This was my first and had a great time. Thanks again. (Fred Lee Stenson)

It was a great night! Many thanks to Katherine Crosier and all committee members! 👏👏👍👍 (Tenny Battles Kendryna)

I’ve enjoyed all of our reunions, but this may have been the best ever! So many details that made it special.  People were remarking how much work was put into it.  (Michele Bro Paul)

Keep the pictures coming. Almost like being there. Would love to have come, just wasn’t meant to be. I may not be remembered by many of my classmates as I only spent my senior year at Burbank High. However I went to Kindergarten at Joaquin Miller with some of the same people I graduated with. My dad grew up there and my grandmother lived there all of her adult life. Burbank is very special to me. (Kathy Brake Falk)

    So great following all the posts and photos. I was really sorry to miss this one! We are in Europe most of the fall each year so we missed out on this. But I’ve loved seeing all the photos and stories. You did an amazing job!
