Lakeside School 125th Reunion

We had a fantastic turnout for the reunion on May 5. We don't have an exact figure for the attendance, but at a guess there were around 400 former and present students, teachers, principals, families, friends and community folks who came. The High Note Sinners provided bluegrass music, Med's Mood Swings provided jazz, Sadza Marimba played African tunes, and a "moon tree" was dedicated to former Principal Fritz Knipe and the late Helen Seymour. Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company donated the coffee. Food was provided by Lakeside grad Chris Benson of C.B. Hannegan's, but most of all people met with old friends.
