Mini-Reunion this Saturday, August 28, in Carlsbad, CA! Limited capacity requires that you contact Scott Napp for reservations. Use this link to let him know of your interest:
Private Message through www.fountainvalley74.com ... Or go to the "message center" by clicking on the envelope icon. Enter "Scott Napp" in the message form and let him know of your interest and questions about the location, time, and other arrangements.
Rumor has it that Lucky Jonker, Bill Ogden, and Larry Parish, plus of course, Teresa and Scott will be there. Also Wendy Coleman and others are tentatively planning on being there. If you see Bill Ogden, remind him that his name is shown on "Missing Classmates"!
You can always use the "Contact Us" button for any questions, suggestions, or concerns about things on www.fountainvalley74.com. Also check "Questions & Answers" for the answers to many questions you might have.
Our first "mini reunion" for 2021 is scheduled for March 17, St. Patrick's Day, in Wickenburg, Arizona! Scott O'Napp and Michael O'Lucia will be at the Flying E Guest Ranch along with whoever can make it on short notice. It is all about connecting with those "who knew you when you were young"...
This will be a "self-organized" reunion. If you are available and interested call Meghan at the Flying E for reservations (+1 (928) 684-2690) . The trail rides are full, or close to full, but there are plenty of other fun things to do! You make separate reservations for meals and rooms. This is a "boarding house" type of establishment, so reservations are required for meals. Meals are "family style", i.e. no menu, whatever is being served is what is available for any given meal.
The Wickenburg airport (E25) is very close. There is no scheduled service and minimal services (fuel- Avgas and Jet A, restrooms, that's about it!). Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (KPHX) is about a 2 hour drive from Wickenburg.
Yes, this is short notice and people have to work, take care of pets, parents and kids. Accommodations are limited. Hope to see as many FVHS '74 classmates as possible!
Those of us who came to FVHS from elementary schools in the Fountain Valley School District came through at an amazing time. Today, only Cox, Fulton, Newland, and Tamura schools remain. Fountain Valley elementary, Harper, McDowell, and Nieblas are gone. St. Francis Assisi also gone, although the buildings are now occupied by the St. Simon and Jude school. Similarly in Huntington Beach: Star View, Vista View, and Westmont remain (also Dwyer); Crest View, Park View, and Rancho View are gone. Warner Jr. High in Westminster continues as a "middle school." If your school is gone, all the more reason to keep the memories alive through 50 year reunions of the classes of 1970!
Short article on 2018 annual Harper Reunion. It might be logical to plan the 50 year reunion of the Harper Class of 1970 the same weekend as the 2020 annual reunion...

Music, newscasts, and articles are now being posted to "What's New".
Once you log-in, check the envelope icon (look up and right) to see how many private message you have waiting to be viewed. No messages? Remember the old adage, "to get a letter, send a letter".
Thank you to all who attended and worked to put together our 45 year reunion weekend! It was FUN!
Debbie, Rick, Linda, and Mike hard at work planning the 45 year reunion. This was a test run of the "Silent DJ" at Newport Dunes.
There is a new photo gallery up where you can see and post your photos from the reunion. Click here: 45 Year Reunion Photo Gallery Log in to post or see photos. If you have photos on your phone and prefer to have the reunion team post them for you, send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reach out to classmates and let them know about our reunion and this website!
There are a couple of stated objectives for having a 45 year reunion beyond the party. Take a look at "Questions and Answers." The first is to develop our contact list for the 50th reunion. The second is to collect contact information for any of the junior high and elementary school classes that "fed" into our FVHS class. Next year those classes can plan their own 50 year reunions: 1970 - 2020.
