Your Reunion Committee is thrilled to announce that the plans are almost complete for your 50th High School Reunion.  The 50th Reunion Committee has some exciting things planned for this three-day event and hope you will plan to attend and meet with fellow Classmates.

Friday, September 27th:  Monte Vista’s Principal, Mr. Joe Troop, will give us a 1 hour tour of the 2019 Monte Vista Campus starting at 4:00pm.  We will gather at 3:45pm by the flag pole in front of the Main Office (park in the north-fenced-in parking lot).  Post Tour (5:30pm) we will meet at the Claim Jumper Restaurant at 5500 Grossmont Center Drive, La Mesa, CA 91942 in the North East Corner of Grossmont Center (north of Walmart) for no-host, no-cover, self-paid food & drinks.

Saturday, September 28th, 2019:  This evening will be our dinner and program along with time to visit with classmates and renew friendships.  This event will be held from 5:30pm to 10:30pm starting with an hour of socializing before the 6:30pm buffet dinner.

Sunday, September 29th, 2019:  We will have a casual & relaxing picnic at Harry Griffen Park beginning at 11:00am and ending at 4:00pm.  A lunch of hamburgers, chips, fruit and water as well as plates, etc. will be provided from about Noon to 2:00pm. 

There are NO Alcoholic beverages allowed, but you may bring your favorite soft drink if you’d like.  There will be lots of time for visiting and room for games to play.  There are some trees for shade, but feel free to bring a pop-up for better shade.  While there are several picnic tables available for us to use, you may also want to bring some comfortable chairs to sit in.

We will be inviting the classes of 1968 and 1970 as well as those from other classes who might be interested.  We look forward to the opportunity to visit with friends from these other classes as well as our own classmates.  There is a nominal $5.00 per person charge for Monarchs of other classes to attend this picnic and Class of 1969 members not attending the Dinner.  Please indicate on your Reservation Form to reserve space at the All-Class Picnic.  We need to have an accurate count of how many will attend the picnic so we can provide ample food for everyone. 

If you have High School memorabilia such as photos, pep ribbons, newspaper articles, etc. that you would be willing to display at the reunion, please contact Cathy Gebert-McMeeken at: or call her at (619) 445-0274.  We’d love to share all the old photos and memorabilia you have saved from our high school years.  Place your name on the back of each item and we will do our best to return all memorabilia after the reunion. 

Don’t forget to fill out Your Reservation Form and return it with your check payment made out to MVMonarchs1969 for the reunion.  The cost per ticket for the Saturday Evening and the Sunday Picnic are $50.00 per person (combined) when received by August 1st, 2019 and $60.00 after August 1st and no later than September 5th, 2019.
