For the first time in a number of years, the weather cooperated with the Fresno High Alumni Association’s committee members and brought cooler temperatures to the event. The cooler weather allowed more of those attending to browse around and visit with other alumni. Last year, most everyone found any small bit of shade or a cooling mister and never moved until dinner was served. Entertainment before dinner this year was Dave Rufner and the all-alumni jazz band, and the FHS choir under the direction of Jeff Sandersier.

A change to the program this year gave a quieter dinner as once introductions were made and a couple of short speeches were heard, there was no music or live auction as in years past. Jackie Garo Boyajian (1960) introduced the oldest known alumni, Roxy Maloyan Dorgan who is 102 and graduated in 1926. Her son, James Dorgan (1953) brought her to enjoy the evening. Roxy’s mother was a graduate of 1904 and lived to be 111. Madeline Dorgan Greenwood graduated in 1954.

Jack Fowler, Association Chairman, introduced Bob Reyes, Principal. Reyes told those attending that he is retiring after 13 years at FHS and spoke of the changes he’s seen during his tenure and also spoke of the changes since Fresno High was built on Echo in 1924. Reyes will not leave completely, but will be the editor of The Warrior Echo and also will be responsible for getting Dailey Elementary in line with an International Baccalaureate program at the grammar school level.
The fun event for the evening was a silent dessert auction. When the auction tables were closed, the winning bidder was able to take their dessert to the table and share with those at the table or other tables who were not so lucky. One lady was heard to say, “We have four desserts at our table and there are only six sitting there.” She said she shared with the unlucky tables close by. What fun it was to share home made goodies.
