Hey, Where's the Music????
Some of you may have noticed that most of our music is missing from some of our pages. On top of this, we are no longer able to listen to the SAV-SAHS Games that Ron Umbaugh was able to provide to us.
These problems are due to the fact that Adobe Flash has been continued as Jan 1, 2021. I am currently trying to get help from ClassCreator in getting this problem resolved. I ask for everyone's patience and am hopeful we will have this fixed soon.
On a side note, if anyone if anyone has any experience converting MP3 files to HTML5 format, I may have a job for you ...
AND THEN A DISQUALIFIER FOR 2021, JUST IN CASE........
NO MATTER WHAT 2021 MIGHT BRING,
WISHING ALL FALCONS A BETTER AND HAPPIER 2021
A 2020 Christmas Message for Class of 1966 SAV Falcons
With 2020 about to end, I am sure many of you cannot wait to leave this year behind us and move on! I am also sure that most of you never thought we would experience a pandemic in our lifetime, but here we are in the midst of one!
Beyond the feelings of isolation, stress and worry for our loved ones and ourselves, this year has allowed us to reflect more deeply about our lives and what is most near and dear to us. Of course, usually our families and close friends are at the top of our lists. But beyond that, for me it has been having this website and being able to reconnect with old classmates as well as getting to know classmates I never actually knew in high school. I think we have an amazing group --- diverse and unique in many ways, but always fun and supportive of each other. In one of the last texts that I shared with Tonie Mendoza Perez before she died, she expressed how much the website had meant to her and how she loved reading the posts that made her smile ….that it was such good medicine for her. Her son, Anthony, later shared with me that she even kept Little Hank’s photo (Bill Carpenter’s Grandson) by her bed for inspiration, up to the time of her death. I guess the point I am trying to make is that this website means many things to each one of us, but I’m hoping it can still be a source of joy and support in these difficult times.
Some of you have asked if we are going to have another reunion in 2021 since that would be 55 years. The answer is YES, we will have a reunion, but until the pandemic dies down and it is safe to travel, it could actually not occur until 2022. We will keep you posted – but no matter what, rest assured that a SAV Class of 1966 Reunion will occur as soon as it is feasible!
As we move on to 2021, my wish to each one of you is that you will be able to stay safe and healthy and that we will all be able to meet again.
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2021!

Welcome Santa Ana Valley 1966 classmates! This website is a private website and ONLY accessible by SAV 1966 classmates.
The website started in January 2016 with the primary goal of getting everyone to reconnect, reminisce, and just be friendly and supportive to each other as well as to let everyone know about the 50th Reunion that was held in September 2016. Even though now our 50th Reunion Celebration has ended, we hope everyone will continue to enjoy staying connected on this website. We know you'll thoroughly enjoy reconnecting and seeing what everyone has been doing the past 50 years. In addition, there are lots of photos that have been posted by classmates, including many from our very successful 50th Reunion weekend.
