To All '66 Falcons living in 

the Southern California area:

Taj Mahal & The Phantom Blues Band 

to perform on

Saturday, January 19, 2019, in Agoura Hills


Happy New Year Falcons. To those living in the Los Angeles area, on Saturday January 19, I'll be performing with blues artist Taj Mahal & The Phantom Blues Band at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills. The concert is being filmed as part of an upcoming documentary on Taj's career since we began recording and touring with him in 1993.
It would be great to see any and as many of my classmates as possible as we don't often perform in nightclub settings. The venue holds about 700 people and there will be seating as well as a dancing area.
Y'all Come On Out....Peace and Blessings to all.    


For more information about the event and to purchase tickets:




Dear Fellow ’66 Falcons,

I know many of us have had Peggy, Suzi and Scotty in our thoughts and prayers as they continue to meet the many challenges following the devastation of the Paradise Fire.  I recently reached out to Peggy & Suzi to get an update that I could share with everyone.   As you might understand, they have all been overwhelmed with the scope of moving forward with their lives. 

I know as they continue their struggle to “start over,” any and all contributions are gratefully appreciated.  To all of you who have already contributed, they are so very appreciative. If you are interested in donating to their GoFundMe pages, you can go to the following links or just go to www.gofundme and type their names in the search bar.




Thank you for your continuing support and generosity.

Paula (Pletcher) DiLuigi

From Peggy & Scotty

Once again, Scotty and I want to thank everyone from Valley who have so beautifully contributed to help us to get back up and moving forward.  The days do get better, lighter, and feel more hopeful with all the love, prayers and support that have come our way.  We would not be as far along without the many ways you have given.  So please know we thank each and every one of you from our hearts to yours.

We found a small one-bedroom apartment south of Chico in Durham.  The day we were to move in, there was a flood due to the first heavy rain since the fire, so our move was delayed!  We have managed to keep our sense of humor through each event on this journey.  Our humor isn’t always our first reaction, but it does eventually surface!   Scotty, Brian (my son), Willy (my grandson), Shelby (Brian’s dog) and I are calling this home for a few months until we can find something a little bigger.  We are grateful to have space to call home as too many do not. 

Scotty was gifted a drum set and has played a few gigs already and has more lined up.  This keep a huge smile on his face!  Brian is taking Hazmat classes, bought a truck with his insurance money, and is hoping to find a trailer so he can connect with contractors and begin working in Paradise.  There will be work for years to come.  Willy is in 2nd grade and started school in Chico.  He has one friend from Paradise in his class.  He likes his teacher and is doing well.  I will begin doing massages and readings this coming week.  We all felt a strong urge to start doing something “normal” again.

We cannot thank each of you enough.  There aren’t words to really express our gratitude.  It’s true, we would not be as strong and as far along without all of you and your support.  Big giant hugs to you all and a heartfelt wish for a very special Christmas with family and loved ones.  Let's make it the best Christmas ever!!!

Love and Gratitude, Peggy and Scotty

From Suzi

I am so extremely grateful for all the love and generosity from all our Falcon classmates – such dear friends!  Your giving kindness and caring comments on the GoFundMe Page was so touching and deeply appreciated.

I am staying with my daughter and family in Sacramento while I decide what’s next.  Starting from scratch to rebuild my life is quite challenging at our age!

Currently, I am in Orange County – good to be visiting with family and wonderful friends!

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for happy times in 2019 and beyond! 

Love to all and thank you again for everything!

Love, Suzi

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.

You do the SAV Class of 1966 Proud!  







Tell us (or brag) about your weddings, kids, grandkids, retirement, hobbies, travel, etc.!!  

Post all of this on your Personal Profile, What's News or General Member Chatter.  

If you want to share photos about your family, pets, vacations, etc., you can post them on your profile page, What's News, or in the "photo gallery" (on the left side) of the home page.


We all love getting news and updates! 








Check out our link on the website - "SAV v SAHS Game"!  

This is an audio recording from KEZY AM Radio that had been in Ron Umbaugh's possession for the past 51 years!

Click on the link "SAV v SAHS GAME" and you can hear the entire game, play-by-play, with all the commercials, music, cheers and more!  


Note:  You'll need to listen to it from your computer as most Ipads/tablets/iphones do not have Adobe Flash Player on them.




Just a reminder that you have an option on your profile settings to allow (or not allow) classmates to make comments on your profile page

If you you're not sure about how you initially established your profile settings, you can do the following to check:

  • Click on the Person Icon in the upper right hand corner of the Home page
  • Click on "Edit Profile"
  • Under "Classmate comments" check to see if the box if checked.  If it's not checked and you want to allow classmates to make comments when you post something, make sure you put a check in the box
  • If you make any changes, make sure you click on the box at the bottom of the page "save changes"

The nice thing about allowing classmates to make comments to your posts is that it allows for more exchange of comments.  There have been some classmates who didn't realize they had inadvertently made their profile settings so no comments could be made which is why I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention.  If someone posts something on your profile page that you don't like or don't want others to see, you have the option to delete it.  

Thank you
