We have a great time at the Golden Grads Luncheons at Sand Point Country Club. Here are some recent pictures to spark your memories.

THE 36th ANNUAL GOLDEN GRADS LUNCHEON WAS JUNE 9 AT THE SAND POINT COUNTRY CLUB AND IT WAS A BLAST!

Each attending member always has a place reserved with his or her class. The luncheon includes a short Business Meeting, Election of Officers and approval of the annual budget. RHS grads MUST BE current dues-paying GG Members to attend. Guests or spouses of members are welcome.

This year the luncheon was changed to a Saturday as recommended by the Club to minimize parking problems, and no major events were scheduled that competed for parking space. Members who could comfortably walk from the residential area to the clubhouse parked above the golf course on Lakemont Drive, leaving the lower lots for those who need easier access. GG volunteers stepped in to supplement Club employees to shuttle attendees from the residential area to the clubhouse. This worked very well!

PRESIDENT'S REPORT ON THE GOLDEN GRADS 2018 ANNUAL LUNCHEON

By GG President Doug Whalley ('63)
Golden Grad Superstars: All of the Golden Grad volunteers deserve credit for their hard work, but in this issue I wanted to give special thanks to these Superstars! Cindy Dack (’60) has chaired the Luncheon Committee for several years, and has done a remarkable job. From the menu to the registration desk to the seating plan to the program, she manages to turn what could be chaos into a fun afternoon of good food, good entertainment, and good socializing with old friends. Thankfully, she has agreed to chair the 2019 Luncheon scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Sand Point Country Club. Thank you Cindy.

Another volunteer I want to acknowledge and thank is long-time Grapevine Editor Lorraine Hitt Carter (’56), who is retiring from the job this year. She faced deadlines with patience and gentle suggestions to all of us to get our articles in on time. It has been a pleasure to work with her over the past several years. Thank you Lorraine. I am also pleased to announce that after a nation-wide search, the new editor of the Grapevine will be my wife Janet Sage Whalley (’64). (Now I really better meet those deadlines!)

Thank you Jerry: Jerry Walton was Golden Grads Treasurer for many years and most recently has served as Finance Chair. He is retiring from that position with his move to Gig Harbor. We owe him our thanks for his work, not only on financial issues but also on a host of special projects for Roosevelt over the years.

Our Scholarship Recipients Are Impressive: When they are introduced at the luncheon we only get a moment to review their accomplishments, but I am always impressed with how they excel in several areas, not just scholarship. It is not uncommon to meet a winner who is a student body officer, 4.0 scholar, athlete, active in philanthropy, and a musician. Our winners show how they are working hard to succeed in life. These young men and women seek out other activities, not just to add to their resume but to learn and grow. I plan to talk to my own grandkids about the merits of taking a long view and working toward a goal.... Read more about them in the Fall Grapevine.

Keep your eyes peeled for news on plans for the 37th Annual Golden Grad Luncheon!
