We also welcome our Pacific High School 'Pirate' friends to the site and hope you too enjoy your stay!


Our Reunion Committee meeting was held 2/8/2014 and the envelopes for the first mailer were stuffed.  These will be in the mail shortly.  Look for your copy.  These notices were basically mailed to only those who have indicated an interest in attending our reunions, however, if any classmate does not receive this notice and wishes to attend, let us know through this site.

Saturday, June 1 the Reunion Committee met at the home of Manny & Mary Lou De La Torre to plan our 58th Class Reunion.  Of course, the first item on the agenda was eating a wonderful lunch prepared by Mary Lou.  With our bellies full, we proceeded to discuss plans for a reunion to be held in the Fall, 2014. Here is a look at the planning so far:

  • The theme will be 'Route 66 - The Fabulous Fifties',

  • To be held at the 'Back Stretch' @ the Orange Show grounds,

  • Casual Dress

  • Reunion will be one day, beginning in the late afternoon until 11:00 or so that night,

  • A bar will be open with appetizers available during the day, and a  buffet dinner served later in the evening,

  • There will be a continuous running video show of past reunions and other activities from our days at SBHS,

  • Music from the 50s & 60s will be played for dancing and listening,

  • You will be asked to bring your memorabilia of our days at SBHS to share with classmates,

  • Ample time will be available to have conversation with classmates and renew old friendships,

  • As a tribute to Director 'Dutch', our outstanding choir members will be requested to perform "Beautiful Savior" for all of us to enjoy,

  • Plus, other fun activities.

It should be noted that this may be the next to last planned reunion activity for the Class of '56.  After this reunion, our goal is to have only one more planned activity in two more years.

Ed Sullivant Passes


Ed Sullivant

Bob Young has notified the Cardinal's Nest of the passing, of another Cardinal, Ed Sullivant.  Ed passed away December 23, 2012.  Ed's wife Gail reports that he was hospitalized for blood pressure and other issues and was to be released to go home to continue treatment and physical therapy, when he succumbed the day before his planned release.  Eddie was a good friend to many of us and he will be missed by us all.  Gail is very pleased that so many of his classmates have been concerned about Ed's well being.

Ed Sullivant's Bio can be found on the Bio page on this site. Thanks go out to Card Bob Young for pursuing the rumor that Ed had passed away.  He was able to speak with Gail and confirm Ed's passing.  Read More > > >

It must have been a penalty for doing something wrong, however, this looks like a group of 'angels'.....well their Mom's thought so!  Sadly, we have lost Dale Conway, Ed Sullivant and Jack Scott over the years.

NEW  pictures added of San Bernardino as we knew it!

Thanks to Shirley (Anderson) White for submitting these wonderful pictures of San Bernardino as we remember it from the 50's!  These pictures should bring back many memories for all of us!!
