2020 IS ALMOST OVER...
What a year it has been! Even though many of us are struggling financially, physically and emotionally, there is a lot to be thankful for. Hopefully your family and education have helped to make you resilient and adaptable to the challenges we've been facing. The Redwood Campus is still closed to students, planning a January opening but that is up in the air with the Covid 19 resurgence. If you are at all interested in how they plan to open the schools, this Webinar will be very interesting. We are all using our creativity to find solutions to the isolation and reaching out to family, friends and classmates.We hope your holiday season is filled with love and gratitude, and that 2021 will be a better year throughout the world.

ANNOUNCING THE 2021 DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI...

Avenue of Giants...

Ellen Davis ‘67 is a biblical scholar who asks an unusual question: How can ancient texts guide faith communities, Jewish and Christian, in responding to urgent contemporary issues, including interfaith relations, climate change, and land degradation?

Gordon Ness ’72  became an expert in treatment, the challenge of sober living, group homes and prison inmate reentry. Managing his personal recovery through Oxford House, a sober living group home in Virginia, he shifted to supporting others in recovery. From 2005 until his death in 2014 he assumed positions in Williamsburg, Virginia in a number of organizations providing treatment, sober group homes and transitional support.

Josh Reeves ‘01 supports small businesses with creative software through his startup Gusto. The organization has recently morphed from a payroll company to one offering a range of financial services including tools to help employees eliminate credit card debt and obtain health care.

CANCELLATIONS AND CHANGES FOR 2020-2021 

The Corona Virus restrictions have caused the Alumni Association to reassess our plans for the 2020-2021 school year. The safety and health of our alumni is of prime importance. As of September 1, 2020:

  • We have cancelled the Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet which we had originally postponed to October 3, 2020. Monies were refunded or donated to the Redwood Scholarship Fund for 2021.
  • We have decided not to schedule the 2021 Avenue of Giants Speaker Day and Banquet, usually held in March for both the 2020 and 2021 inductees. A new date will probably take place in winter of 2022.
  • Reunions for 2020 are either being cancelled or postponed. Please contact your class for details. There is certainly no reason why 2021 reunion classes can't get started in planning!
  • Reunions for 2021... Classes of '61. '71. '81, '91, '01 and '11 should start thinking about plans for fall of 2021! Contact us for help!

IN MEMORY OF DOUG BASHAM AND BOB BACHELDER

Both Doug Basham and Bob Bachelder were Math teachers together for many years as well as good friends and skiing buddies. Doug (85) had been struggling with Alzheimer's for the last three years and moved to Oregon to be near his daughter. His real "claim to fame" was the connection he made with students through his coaching of both Cross Country and Track, well into his retirement years. The Marin IJ published a wonderful Tribute to Doug. Bob (90) was dedicated to teaching and was the original "fix it" man who was often seen with his tool kit helping his colleagues. He was an avid skiier and wind surfer well into his 80's. They both made a difference and will be missed by the Redwood Family.
