A Christmas Message for 2021
Wow, here we are just days away from 2022!! Doesn’t it seem as we get older, the years are going by faster??
I was hoping 2021 was going to be a much better year. As much as I thought that by this time we would certainly be through the worst of the pandemic, it was not meant to be! Sadly, Covid is still with us, going strong with new variants, and taking far too many souls.
I know we are all sick and tired of NOT having our normal lives back. I’m also sick and tired of worrying about getting the virus and the divisiveness concerning masks, vaccines and practically anything to do with Covid. I just want it to all go away! But the one thing I’m not sick of is that we still have our little “safe space” with this SAV website. I am truly grateful for all of you who are still checking in, and whether you are posting or not, I’m just glad you’re still interested enough to log in and see what’s going on.
This year we've lost nine of our own -- Ron Davenport, Jim Geyer, Al Martinez, Ron Moorhead, Stanley Moulden, Jim Noyes, Linda Roundtree, Robert Scheetz and Keith Wright. They will forever be etched in our memories from our high school days. We were blessed that some of them were able to attend our 50 Year Reunion in 2016. For example, we had Al Martinez as our Emcee at our Saturday Night Dinner which will always be a fond memory for me! I was also able to talk to Jim Geyer and Keith Wright during that special weekend and feel thankful for that. All of those who passed away this year will be greatly missed, and I wish peace and comfort to their families and friends.
I put out a survey a few months back about having a Reunion in the Fall of 2022 that many of you responded to, and I was very happy with the positive responses. Having the Reunion in the Fall is still definitely our goal, but due to the precariousness of our times, we have decided to hold off from booking it since deposits are required which are nonrefundable. For that reason, I can’t give you a definite date yet, but hope to before May. As it now stands, we are looking at a Friday night for our dinner in late September or October. Once we confirm that date, we’ll plan other events around it. I’m sorry for the hesitancy, but hope you understand.
As we move on to 2022, 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 2022!
We're excited to start planning our next reunion

If you have any information about anyone on the 'Missing Classmates" list, please let us know by messaging Paula Pletcher DiLuigi with whatever information you might have. If you are in communication with anyone on this list, it would be WONDERFUL if you would reach out to them and encourage them to join. Please let any 1966 classmate know that they can go directly to the website, www.66savalleyfalcons.com to register.
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.
If you are a SAV 1966 classmate, just go to the sign in box and click on “Join.” The next page that pops up will be a complete list of 1966 classmates. Find your name and click on it, and the program will then guide you through the rest of the registering process. There are no individual subscription fees to join. Once again, the website is totally private and secure and no information is shared by any other entities. You can share as much or as little information about yourself as you wish.
Please check out the "Missing Classmates" link on the left side of the screen. If you are aware of the whereabouts of anyone included on that list, please let them know and encourage them to sign up on the website.
We encourage all SAV 1966 Classmates to join! You won't regret it!
