Class of 1978 40th Year Reunion
Venue: Blue Skies Country Club
Date: August 25th, 2018 7:00pm - 10:00pm
RSVP Deadline: June 1st, 2018
Address: 55100 Martinez Trail , Yucca Valley , California , 92284
Details: Pam Magsam, Pam Field, and Gary Burkholder (and thank you to Susie Rains for starting this process!) are planning for the 40th reunion of the Class of 1978. It is hard to believe that it has been 40 years! The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 25, 2018, at 7:00 pm at the Hawk’s Landing Golf Club at Blue Skies in Yucca Valley. Judy Mahaffey is also organizing a get-together at Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown at 1:00pm the afternoon before (Friday, August 24).

While we don’t have the exact price yet, we expect that it will be around 50.00 per person. This will include dinner and a photo booth that we will rent for the occasion. Because most of us haven’t seen each other in a long time, rather than fill the evening with speeches and such, we thought it would be enough to have dinner and time to visit. In addition, we are open to people from other classes to attend. We won’t be actively reaching out to them, but if you have friends you were close to who would be interested in attending, please let us know and we can send information.

We will be setting up multiple opportunities to pay – by check to one of us; through Evite; and through PayPal. We will send out correspondence once we have the final information. We are attempting to keep costs as low as possible; any funds left over will be donated to the YV Trojan Fund.

We are also asking your help in contacting alums who we have not been able to locate; that list is below. If you know anyone from the list, please feel free to reach out to them with this information and ask them to send their contact information to Gary Burkholder by email ( or through Facebook Messenger (Gary can be searched using Gary J Burkholder Oro Valley). For everyone, if we could have your email and/or US mail address, that will help us to keep connected with everyone.

Thank you for your help, and we look forward to a fun event! We will continue to post updated information on this site as it becomes available.
