HOORAY HOORAY, THE FIRST OF MAY...

Do you remember the May Day Celebrations on the South Lawn with music, maypole dancing, flowers and food? It must have been during the 70s when the sun was out, there were no bells to remind you of classes, and there was generally a very festive attitude... I think it was before AP Tests ever existed!

HAPPY MAY DAY!
FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO!

WHAT'S ON AT REDWOOD?

The Redwood Library is about to undergo major changes. It already has lost its Reference Room and the encyclopedias that many of us used when we were students. Most research is now done on the internet. Even the book inventory has diminished as students use more Kindle and Audio books. Skyla Thomas '25 and Madison Bishop '26, current journalism students have written a great article in the BARK about the changes. READ BARK ARTICLE
   

What the article doesn't mention is that the Alumni are going to be part of the revision, helping to create a Redwood History and Alumni Corner with information and displays about the history of Redwood. If working on this project is of interest to you, contact us at info@redwoodalumni.org. We are really looking for someone with archival experience.

Graduation is not until Thursday, June 13 but the calendar is filled with activities. AP tests have begun, the prom has been held, spring athletes have been very successful and are now in many play off games and events, scholarships are due to be announced soon, banquets and award ceremonies are just down the road, and another school year is about to end..Get ready to welcome the Class of 2024!

TURNING BACK TIME

We may be setting our clocks back an hour on November 4th, but this photo will set you back 65 years! Redwood really was built in the middle of a marsh with its only entrance on Williams Avenue.There was no quad, amphitheater, back parking lot, CEA, Moody fields, swimming pool or other athletic facilities, and certainly no technology...some of you will remember film strips and reel to reel movies in the classroom? And black boards with chalk and erasers? And a library reference room with a card catalog and filled with encyclopedia?

Redwood opened to its first students in 1958 It was supposed to be called Licatuit, after an Indian princess, but that was challenged and Redwood emerged as the official name, even though redwood trees didn't and couldn't grow in the marshy area. A lot has changed over the years.

SURPLUS YEARBOOKS AVAILABLE FOR SALE!

The Redwood Alumni Association has purchased most of the surplus yearbooks from Redwood for a very good price...We can offer them to you for only $50 including shipping and handling. We have one or more for most classes since 1975, some classes being more scarce. If you have lost a yearbook or never bought one, and are interested, please contact info@redwoodalumni.org with your name, year of the yearbook, and mailing address. We will notify you and if the yearbook is available, will give you payment instructions! Yearbook purchase(s) are available to Redwood alumni only.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

I need help to find family and friends of Todd Norris, Tom Poppin and Robin Williams, all graduated in 1969. We were teammates in 1969 on the Redwood High School track team, setting the mile relay record for the school that year, and it remains the school record to this day! The relay team was selected to be inducted into the Redwood Athletic Hall of Fame for this milestone achievement. Unfortunately, all three men are deceased. If anyone is related to them or can help me find living relatives or close friends, please contact me. I want their wives, ex-wives, children and friends to know these former athletes are being honored next year. My desire is for their families and friends to know their accomplishments and to attend the RAFOF induction ceremony.
Any information would be helpful. Please contact:
