Class of '62 alumni Bill Cox from Sebastopol, CA; Tomoko Takafuji from Kyushu, Japan; Yurika Pringsheim from Passau, Germany; and K.C. Clarke from Washington DC recently got together for a mini-reunion in Japan. They attended the Oeshiki Festival just outside Tokyo before visiting Kyoto where they saw the red tori and bamboo forest. During their time in Tokyo, Bill and K.C. were able to locate the Northwest and American Embassy compound neighborhoods but mention that they did not recognize the incredibly tall skyscrapers that replaced their homes in the last 58 years!

Lydia was in Davis, CA, visiting her son's family and they met in Concord, CA, spending two hours catching up over lunch and reminiscing old times. Charlie says it was fun seeing her again.
