South Shore High School Class of 1957

Wednesday February 19, 2003
Mini High School Reunion at Qwiigs restaurant in San Diego, CA
(more pictures from Sara -click page 2)

We put this mini-reunion together BECAUSE Allen and Karey Rosenston were out visiting in California after a stay in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Fay & Dennis Flanzer came from Rolling Hills Estates.
Prior to the get together, Maxine Emailed Denny this 1956 era picture of him from her ancient archives!
Doug & Karen Malewicki came from Irvine.

Doug did not forget a promised thank you toast to Dottie Gordon Benjamin and Ina May Flink - the hard working organizers of the 45th reunion!

Sara & Craig Zaremberg (Peal) came with Mark Geller from Anaheim Hills in Orange County.
Roberta Tugenberg with Ron and Maxine Young (Mazursky).

Nicer pictures of our guests of honor, Roberta and currently missing Robert Tugenberg will be coming once Allen gets back to Chicago.  Sara took a bunch too.

Jerry and Beth Brodkin came from nearby Escondido. 

Dr. Jerry brought his new 380Z sports car and let Doug drive it after dinner.  Doug's blasting down the skinny streets at full throttle in the dark probably took a year off Jerry's life!  Zoom!  Zoom!

Mark Geller. 

Turns out that Doug and Mark worked at a couple of the same giant engineering companies back in the 60's and 70's.  North American Space and Information Systems on the Apollo man to the  moon project and at Douglas Aircraft (both of which are now Boeing divisions).

Maxine Young (Mazursky) has a very appropriate last name!
Allen Rosenston brings out the check.  I took 3 shots - he was supposed to be grimacing, not smiling!
February 20th Morning.  The zoomed in view from Doug & Karen Malewicki's condo room in Oceanside.  Windy and clear out there.
Karen Malewicki enjoying our beach walk to breakfast.
Teeny bird tracks all over the sand.  Great opportunity for a romantic sand scribble!
About half way out to Ruby's restaurant (located at the very end of Oceanside pier).  A 340 degree ocean view! 

At 1,740 feet long, the Oceanside pier is the longest wooden pier on the California Coast.

Karen and friend on the Oceanside pier!
Surf's up. 

Allen - are you and Karey really going back to Chicago on Friday?

Doug's 50 mile bike ride home from Oceanside became a 32 mile ride from San Clemente, because the Camp Pendleton Marine Base segment was recently closed to civilians due to the Iraq thing.  Last time that happened was during the Gulf War. When the base route is closed to cyclists, the CHP allows you to bike on the freeway.  Karen didn't care for me doing that, so dropped me off in San Clemente, a bit past the Dolly Parton National Monument (the San Onofre Nuclear power plant).
Off we go.

An EMail from Sara....
Hi all - just want to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing old classmates/friends and meeting new ones (spouses and teacher).  We drove home (Mark and I talking about all of you, our great time, wonderful dinner  and just reminiscing about old times).  Craig even managed to put in his 'two cents' worth.  He had a super time, too!!! What great memories from the past brought right up to the present!!!!!!  Thanks all for being there.  Please keep in touch!
