Patti was a Monroe viking and graduated in 1973. I recently found out from information on the internet, that Patti had passed away in March of 1980. I would like to get in touch with classmates and friends of hers if this is possible. I graduated from Kennedy High, however, Patti was a former neighbor of mine and school friend at Porter Jr. High. If you can be of some help, please contact me. Thank You

Thousands of miles away, I feel John's death as it were one of my own family. My heart and best wishes goes out to his family, and anyone who knew him knows that he did not deserve to go out like that, and that makes it all the more terrible.

Lapsed member of Summer '70 and very happy to have found this site. Lots of good memories dredged up here. If you want some more memories, you might check out my new book on the Valley and its history (The San Fernando Valley: America's Suburb, from L.A. Times Books). There's mention of Van Nuys Blvd. cruising, Bob's, Muntz Stereos, Gravity Hill, Newport '69 at Devonshire Downs, etc of Monroe teacher Mike Larabee with his Olympic gold medal, The Onion on Haskell, the Pink Lady of Malibu Canyon, rocket tests at Rocketdyne...and, as they say, much much more. You can get it at, many bookstores or try the website:

Hey to all the alumni of class of "97" I hope that you are all doing well and that your goals are being met and surpassed. I am glad to say that My experiences at monroe were were enlightening and memorable. I will not forget the friendships That I made during my years at monroe. From those made my first day at Langdon elem. to the ones made a day before graduation. I want to thank all of the teachers who at times don't get the recognition that they deserve even when their decisions don't seem fair. All I can say is thank you for filling my head with knowledge that I thought That I would never use and the advice that came to great use in choosing my career (teaching) I realized that It does take a lot of patience and energy to teach and now that I am in your shoes I see why you did what you had to do when you did it. To all those in class of 1997 the closest bunch of muchachos and muchachas that I ever came in contact with Tahnx for the memories and experiences that we created hit me up if you visit this site we should catch up on old memories. considering what happened on September 11th I think that all of us should cntact someone who we havent spoken to in years even if it is jsut to say " hello" you never know it can make someones day a bright on. If you want to send me an email send it to may You all be blessed with nuthin but fortune. signing out
