We had a great time at the Golden Grads Luncheon at Sand Point Country Club June 7, 2017. Here are some pictures to spark your memories, and a report on all the excitement by Golden Grads President Doug Walley.

36th ANNUAL GOLDEN GRADS LUNCHEON WILL BE JUNE 9 AT THE SAND POINT COUNTRY CLUB

The 36th Annual Golden Grad Luncheon will be held Saturday June 9, 2018, 11 am, at Sand Point Country Club, 8333 – 55th N.E., Seattle, WA.

Don't forget to send in your registration form (click here) and encourage your classmates to attend this annual event! Reservations ($32 per person) are required and must be in our hands by Wednesday, May 30th, 2018. Doors open at 11:00 AM - Social Hour and sign in at the Registration Table, 11:00 to 12:00 - Lunch service starts at 12:15 PM. Each attending member 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.

Note: The luncheon was changed to a Saturday as recommended by the Club to minimize parking problems, and no major events will be scheduled that compete for parking space. There will still be other traffic by Club members, especially if it's a sunny day.

To avoid parking problems we are asking members who can comfortably walk from the residential area to the clubhouse to please park above the golf course on Lakemont Drive, leaving the lower lots for those who need easier access. GG volunteers will supplement Club employees who shuttle attendees from the residential area to the clubhouse. If you need a ride, look for a golf cart or car to take you to the clubhouse and back after the luncheon. Oh, and cauliflower steak will no longer be a menu item!

GOLDEN GRADS 2017 ANNUAL LUNCHEON

Report by GG President Doug Whalley
The 35th Annual Golden Grad Luncheon was held June 7, 2017 at Sand Point Country Club and it was very successful despite a parking conflict with a golf tournament scheduled at the same time. (Extra golf carts were pressed into service to transport grads.)

Roosevelt orchestra members performed as guests arrived. Master of Ceremonies Rick Keating (’64) introduced the classes of 1947 (70th anniversary), 1957 (60th), and 1967 (50th). Ten students received college scholarships for academic excellence from our endowment funds, including a $1,000 RHS Spirit Award supplementing the GG scholarship award for the student who contributed the most to Roosevelt. The Class of 1963 sponsored this year’s Spirit Award, and the Classes of 1951 and 1953 will sponsor it in 2018. The Class of 1962 again raised $1,000 in scholarship funds to honor a former teacher, this year Dr. Earl Prebezac.

In a special presentation, three Roosevelt Robotics Team members (all female) showed us their award-winning robot. They did not actually turn it on, since they were worried it would rip up the carpet. Luckily, we did'nt have to face that problem when we were in school.

We were excited to welcome new principal Kristina Anderson Rodgers, who is not only a Roosevelt alum but also the daughter of alums Bill (’65) and Nancy Ford Anderson (’66). Kristina was formerly an assistant principal at Roosevelt. Brian Vance, who has been an outstanding principal for over ten years, is moving to West Seattle High School. At the luncheon he thanked the Golden Grads for their support, and told Rick Keating he would not surrender his honorary Roosevelt diploma. The former West Seattle principal is moving to Lincoln High School. Yes, that Lincoln High School. They’re back!
