We all know things change, so check with them every couple of hours. The Catalina Express number is 1-800-481-3470
I'm sure we'll get this reunion in yet. Thanks Cougs...

City & State: Cerritos, CA
Message: I'm seeing on the news that ferries are going to Avalon to evacuate all the people. I was just there on my cruise last Tuesday, and have some wonderful pictures. What's so bizarre is, I was sorry I didn't buy an item I saw in one of the shops when I was there. I phoned them on Tuesday and ordered it. It arrived by UPS this afternoon. Alex just said when we were there and he saw the one little fire station, his thoughts went towards what they would do if there was a fire. It's such a beautiful place. I hope it's not as bad as the news is reporting, and the reunion can continue.

City & State: Cypress, CA
Message: Paco, your picture of an "Earlier Trip to Avalon" was actually an Ensenada cruise taken by members of the class of 68 to celebrate our 50th birthdays. Didn't include a stop at Catalina, but was a lot of fun. That was back in 2000 (haven't had a vacation since). I'm sorry to hear about the fire in Catalina today, and hope they can bring it under control quickly. It's unfortunate that it had to happen the day before the reunion trip...just be happy it wasn't DURING the trip.

Message: HEY! Fine how-do-you-do! I come all this way for my 50th and somebody starts a fire on Catalina!!!! What th??? Well for anyone who is interested, I just called the boat company and they have a recording that says something to the effect that yes, there's a fire on Catalina but it is expected to be in-check through the evening and night and no one need worry (easy for HER to say!). Then you are supposed to leave a message and they will get back to you in the morning to confirm or otherwise. Funny. They said everything is supposed to be ok, "especially for those from the Hawthorne High group". They want us! They want us! Say John ... maybe we should change it to Griffith Park ... we KNOW the fire is out there, right?

Message: Tom, that was 135th St. The south/west corner of Dana, and T was also the first year of the Hawthorne National Middle League. The next year we moved to a new park across the street from Cabrillo elementary. Sometime in the 80's I took my kids back to show them where I broke up no-hitters and hit home runs, but it had gone to "park heaven"..Good Times. I can still hear sister Pat yelling "Howard, Sandy Peppers is here" while I was at bat.

Message: A few weeks ago I couldn't remember the name of an eating place near Sepulveda and Centinela. It took my 74-year-old mother to come up with the name - Airport Village. While Googling for it, I stumbled upon this artist's website. He paints nostalgic locations around the U.S. and he included Hawthorne's own A & W Root Beer stand. To see it, go to http://www.stancline.com/buydriveins3.htm
