Nevada City High School Class of 1946
(Wednesday September 17, 2014)
Today we're getting together
for lunch with the class of '46 at Christopher's on Main Street Grass Valley.
This is my sister Virginia's class. Mel's the class
of 45 but we all went to school together in Nevada City and it's fun to
get together. Beverly Kilroy did a wonderful job of planning as always.
Bless her heart.
From left...Sam, Mel, Bonnie and sister Kathy,
Eileen and daughter, and Don. During our conversation, Don Ellis
mentioned the terrible destruction when Sam Pello served in Korea. He'd
given us the picture below at another reunion. Anyway, today he said
that when he went back to Korea a citizen thanked him....the first time
that ever happened. The country had been miraculously rebuilt with
Sam and Don in Korea

The luncheon was delicious, and the get together
with this wonderful bunch is beyond special. So glad to see everyone,
and miss those who either couldn't make it, or are no longer with us.
Beverly, thank you so much for all your work planning everything. Take
care everybody, and hopefully we'll see you at the next one.
