The date is Saturday, May 20th in Oceanside. Time: 4 pm until you leave. We are starting early so that amigos driving back to the Valley and points beyond can get home not too late.  We will eat around 6 p.m.….let us know if you are arriving later.



Everyone is welcome . If you attended or graduated from VNHS in the 60's, or knew someone who did, or just like to party, then you are welcome to join us. These get -togethers  are totally casual and are an opportunity to reconnect with our school friends plus make new friendships….clique free zone :o).
