Dear Classreport Users:
We are one of the premier social networking websites dating back to 2003.
We are a small, family-owned and operated business with less than 15 staff, yet we freely host over a
million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users
We are funded solely through voluntary contributions. Despite our small size, we have the same
costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So we are asking for your support.
If everyone reading this gives $15, our fundraiser will be over in one day. If Classreport is useful
to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you for your support.

All contributions will be DOUBLED through May 31!
On July 12th, Del Valle Park once again was the ground where Lancers and Lancerettes gathered. The class of 1978 officially put its tent up for the 2nd (or is it 3rd time)? Dave and Guyla's signage worked and Lisa's low-key encouragement (some call it guilt) psychically called all 800+ of the students we graduated with to join us once again. Veronica (Roni) Martin Daube came in from Indianapolis, Nanci Doran Cooley flew in unexpectedly, Carla (Dr Payne) drove in from San Diego, Teri Friend, Donna Salvitti, Sherrie Higgs, Chilstrom and his lovely wife from Hemet, Clink and her hubby, Leslie R, Gary W (and his gorgeous Elissa), Glena and her hubby, Nancy Lum Korb, Karen George, Roy B, Garth P, Cheryl Howze, Ken Deason, Tim Cain, and even Klune showed up for the second year in a row after saying he was going to bypass reunions until our 50th! Forgive me those whose names I didn't mention, spelled wrong, or didn't include both married and maiden names. Or, those who signed the list and weren't in the book. My heart is in it if not the rest of me. Maybe we should just include a picture of the signup sheet instead of me listing the names here which is so inexcusably boring.
A great time was had by all. Now if we could only figure out how to alter the time currents so the minutes between 11 and 4 can expand in some other hemisphere and we wouldn't have to go back to work but could just have the best of high school all over again without having to buy another yearbook or take any tests.
Hope you will make it next year.

It means so many things to so many different people. Some very respectable people don't believe in them. Twelve sentences to say about getting together with people we knew a long time ago, all at the same moment, not knowing for sure who we are going to see and what we are going to talk about. And then there is a comfort that reappears, perhaps differently than it has in decades.
I was going to have different people write the twelves sentences. Then this afternoon I knew exactly what I wanted to say, but now that I'm sitting here I forgot. Does that happen to you? You know that quote about people being there for a reason, a season or a lifetime?
In the scheme of things high school is a season. But there was something so incredible about Lakewood Class of '78. I know certain characters from other years enhanced our experience, but people our age, those whom we studied with and matured along side of... are so cool to reunite and hit the refresh button. Maybe lots of other classes feel that way, or not.
Aging. Friendship. That feeling of familiarity? Who else has twelve sentences?
Lakewood's Class of 1978 was the best. We had everything lined up for the ages to envy. Good friendships, love affairs that have lasted and reproduced the next class, truly talented doctors, artists and business people. We might not have won every championship, but we were champions. Every year as we get farther from those days, these reunions remind us just how lucky we were to be in the Class of '78. Lisa....

After the event, there will be a fun gathering at Glory Day's where everyone is welcomed..
Bring your own picnic or support the Alumni Food and Refreshment booths...
It's that time again. We've done the annual all year picnic now for a few years. Each year more and more people come. It seems more and more people are having a good time. Please check your calendar and see if you can make it. Make that flight early to get the best deal. Plan ahead and connect with as many of your old friends as you can possibly reach.
Every year it seems we lose some of our beloved classmates, so time is of the essence to reconnect and enjoy the good fortune we had to be a part of Lakewood High School Class of 1978.
Dave Romero and Guyla Wilkerson Romero are kind enough to get there early, set up a key location and put up our proud sign. Food is available unless you want to bring your own. No alcohol or pets unless they are hot rods that line up on the prime parking spaces.
Please come this year.
Please tell all your classmates that you are still in touch with and get the word out there.
People party over at Glory Days long after the picnic is over.
Dave was kind enough to put together the webpage for our class.
Please update your profile and let us know how you are doing and how we can get in touch.
Miss you and hope to see you soon!
