It is a beautiful day here in Carmel Valley and we are in full swing with harvest (I work for a winery now – seemed like a good idea). Grapes are arriving at the rate of 20 to 40 tons a day and we are crushing and pressing for long hours. Due to the enthusiasm of terrific Bob – Wizard of Oz – in “administration” I braved the dust in my garage this weekend and unearthed some great stuff. There is a February 22, 1964 issue of the newspaper published weekly for the Armed Forces. ANYBODY REMEMBER THE TITLE OF THIS PUBLICATION? Obviously, I know. The headline was Terrorist Bomb at Movie Kills Three; Heroic Marine Capt. Saves Many More. I also uncovered four issues of the Bamboo Beacon dated Oct. 31, 1963; April 29, 1964; Feb. 4, 1964; and June 11, 1963. I also found program for the Graduation Exercises for the Class of 1963 which included Robert H. Adams, Jr., Alfred Hau, Betty Johnston, Jacqueline Ellen Pray, Genie Ann Ross, Trinh David, and William Wagner. Diplomas were presented by Brigadier General Milton Adams, Asst. Chief of Staff MAC-V. There are lots of photos of ACHS kids and school activites and, finally, an invitation addressed to Miss Alice Ahlgren and Mr. Michael Cooper to attend a movie and breakfast after the Junior-Senior Prom at the home of Brigadier General and Mrs. Carl Youngdale. And, oh yes, the name of my “missing” cheerleader was probably Suzie Adams and Marilyn’s last name was Snow. Hope this stirs up lots of memories. You can all drop by Carmel Valley and sip some wine while passing around old photos. Door’s always open!
