2007 marked twenty (!) years since the Class of 1987 graduated from Healdsburg High School. The reunion committee members - Sarah Bowers, Pam Driggers, Trish Kuba, Bryan McBurney and Heather Roth - met over the course of a year to plan the weekend's activities. The group expanded on the graduating class list and invited classmates who attended Windsor and/or Healdsburg schools for the majority of their school careers, but for whatever reason (moved, etc.), didn't graduate from Healdsburg High School with the rest of the class. The general concensus was that we had been friends then and everyone should be able to share in the fun of reminiscing about the good ol' days.

Prior to the reunion, a survey was hosted and members of the Class of '87 responded to questions such as, 'What is your strongest memory from high school?' and 'If you had high school to do over again, would you change anything?' to 'Are you looking forward to our 20-year reunion?' and 'If you knew someone was on the fence about attending, what would you say to them to encourage them to attend?'. Check out the results.

Invitations were sent out with the reunion weekend plans and some fun remembrances from the ten-year reunion including favorite music artists, movies, television shows, fashions and after-hours entertainment ventures.

Join us for a recap of the weekend, especially if you were only able to attend a portion of the weekend, or if you were not able to join us at all - come see what you missed! We certainly missed you!!

Friday, August 10th - Giorgio's Restaurant, Healdsburg

Kicking off the weekend

The first event of the weekend was an informal gathering at Giorgio's Restaurant in Healdsburg. Giorgio's is an 'old-school' establishment, untouched by the wave of tourist-enhancement that has gone on through downtown and is very much the way it was back in the late 1980's. The current owner, Bill Anatasio, was thrilled with the prospect of playing host to our kickoff to the reunion.

The party started before we even entered the restaurant's patio area when Dena Paskaly and Tammy Shirley showed with a cooler full of jello shots.

Reminscing (or refreshing the memory?)

1984-1987 yearbooks on display

Once on the patio, classmates had a chance to pick up a nametag, update their addresses and browse the yearbooks. Edna Sierra and Suzette Martinez looked for pictures of the '85 Homecoming princesses, while Travis Rodgers showed his fiance that he did once have short hair!
