18th annual alumni dinner 4

If you didn’t attend the 18th annual all-alumni dinner on May 6, you missed a lot of fun.  The event was sold out two days before and there were disappointed people at the last minute who could not attend.  The contest for the most classmates attending a mini-reunion was won by class of 1959 and a lot of thanks goes out to Jack Globenfelt who organized his class and coming from New York to attend.  Each 1959 attendee walked away with a nice goodie bag for the evening.

The FHS Associated Student Body and Leadership ran the 50/50 raffle and collected $443.  The lucky winner, besides the ASBL, was Sam Holmes, class of 1979 who walked away with $221.50.

Gary Lanfranco, class of 1964 catered a fantastic dinner of flat iron steak, scalloped potatoes, vegetables and salad which was served by Fresno High cheer squad and Senate members.

The silent dessert auction was fabulous with over 30 delicious items to bid on. Winners of the dessert shared their goodies around their tables and eventually took home lots of calories and carbohydrates in the leftover desserts.

In attendance was Dennis Elia, class of 1959 and his mother Mary, class of 1936 who just turned 96 and had a rousing happy birthday sung to her.

The classes of 1979, 1980 and 1981 were having such a great time, they closed the place down.

18th annual alumni dinner 3

A wonderful evening with the hint of threatening rain did not keep the group from having a wonderful time. Campus tours were led by JROTC and cheer squad, there were so many alumni who had not seen the current renovation of the school and were much surprised by how well the beloved Royce Hall is doing. It will be going through a million dollar sound renovation soon.

Many thanks to so many student groups who helped set up the event on the street and helped to clear the street when it was over. 
Join us next year, it’s the first Saturday in May each year. More photos will be posted at FresnoHighAlumni.com soon.
