Yes, it's been a while since our news has been
updated and the time for a 35th Reunion came and went. So many
things have happened in the last three years that it would be
almost impossible to list them all. Here are just a few of them:
- Superstorm Sandy (need I say more?)
- The passing of my mother and Jackie's father, including six
others in the extended family
- Taking care of the remaining parents, as they struggle through
their health challenges
- Getting the last child off to college
- Making sure both of us stay as healthy as possible (not that
- Passings of our sympathies and condolences to members of the
Class of 78 who lost family
As we approach this year's Thanksgiving holiday,
our wish is that all of you get to spend it with family and friends
that you care for, and that appreciate who you are. There's nothing
better than good food, good friends and good family getting together
to enjoy each others' company.
At the end of each year, we'd exclaim that "next
year has got to be better than this one"! Well, it hasn't
turned out that way for a bunch of years in a row. If anything,
it's been the opposite. But, that won't stop us from trying, once
again, to coax the appropriate deity into granting our wish:
"Please make next year better than this one.
We've gone through enough suffering and pain, and really could
use some calm and peace in our lives".
That's a wish, if granted, we could ALL use.
September 15, 2012
Yes, that's right folks! It's September of 2012
and time to start thinking about your THIRTY FIFTH REUNION!
We need updated email addresses

list (we know who YOU are!) and for those of you on Facebook (isn't
the world on Facebook???), please send a message to Jackie Schweitzer
Guerrera and get the ball rolling with updated info, catching
up on life, etc, etc.
Before you know it, 2013 will be here and it will
be TIME TO PARTAY!!! If the Mayans were RIGHT, see y'all in the
afterlife. But, if the Mayans were WRONG, the 35th Reunion of
the Long Beach High School Class of 78 is ON!!!!

master, I hereby declare that the Long Beach High School Class
of 78 be regarded as the MOST INCREDIBLE lot of classmates EVAHH!!!!
Over two years ago, many of you came face to face
with fellow classmates you hadn't seen in 30 years. Saturday night,
many of you did it again as new faces showed up to celebrate in
"Jackie Style"! We also had some classmates from other
years in attendance, as our influence and ability to party is
known far and wide. Imagine that. <wink wink>

Discussions begin on the plan
for a 30th reunion in 2008. Email "feelers" are sent
out to start the process of finding people.
Idea for a 30th reunion is born
"Jackie, you and your
crew did an amazing job! It was good, if a bit surreal, to see
all the familiar faces (okay - some not so familiar - but still
good to see them)."
- Rochelle Breyer (Chamlin)
"What a great event!
It's hard to put into words how it felt to see all of the people
that I have grown up with and spent such special times together.
It felt like the night was only an hour long. I wished it could
have lasted longer. The hard work and dedication that Jackie and
her staff put forth was incredible. I can't believe you had the
time to do all of this. I thank you for a great evening and it
was great to see the bond that Long Beach people still have with
- Jonathan Landsberg
"This reunion was worth
the wait! I am so glad that so many people were happy to see one
another. Talking to old friends and ones I hardly even spoke to
in high school. I went back home to Washington State knowing we
do have a very proud class and knowing that people who wanted
to see a piece of the their past showed up. I went on the beach,
got my Gino's pie and even drove by the Sands at Atlantic beach
before heading home. Jackie, you were my prom date then, but you
were Queen of the Reunion this night. Thank you oh so much."
- Matt Siegel
"Jackie, you and your
committee did a wonderful thing. Through your dedication and hard
work, you gave us a gift we will remember and cherish forever.
Ours was a "Reunion of the Hearts". Smiles and tears
of joy, laughter and hugs filled with love and memories. Everything
you had prepared for us was perfect and beautiful. Thank you for
bringing us all together again."
- Pamela Pressner
"My husband and I had
a great time! It was so great to see everyone again. It didn't
matter if we hung out together in high school or not, most of
us grew up together from elementary school. Most of the faces
remain the same. We were like a very big family. The committee
did a beautiful job with everything, thank you soooo much! I am
happy we made the trip from Florida. It was worth it! I also think
it's great that we can continue our reconnections through the
websites you have set up. Let's all get together again!"
- Judy Herman (Burke)
"Wow, what a great time!
Millions of thanks to the organizing committee for making this
- Evan Oster
was amazing! I feel that I got my childhood back. It's been so
long since I've spoken to even my closest high school friends
that I felt they were gone forever and the memories were beginning
to fade. I have lived in CA for the last 15 years and was so far
away and removed from LB. I had a chance to talk to people that
knew me and know me (because I haven't changed very much) about
things that no one else could ever understand. Memories of my
13 years in LB keep flooding back. I even met some people that
I didn't really know back then, but are really cool now. I vow
to keep in touch and not let any of it slip away again. Thank
you so much for all of the hard work and the extra push that Jackie
gave me in encouragement on the phone. Thank you for
opening up your home to me, Susan for making me feel like I never
left, Lewis for helping me remember significant times at 14 years
old and Frank for being there. I had a GREAT time. I wouldn't
change a thing; only it was over too fast."
- Dana Abrams
"A fantastic job! Thank
you. The reunion was 10+!"
- Judy Cooper (Tannen)
"I had a phenomenal time.
It was great to see so many familiar faces! I loved both locations.
Thanks for all your hard work."
- Elise Arnone (Short)
"I had the most terrific
time at the Reunion Weekend! I only wish it was longer, maybe
a reunion WEEK next time! The Manor East was a great place to
have the party. The food was excellent and the room was perfect
for the event. All of the details were amazing. Name tags, video,
& speeches all brought me back to my High School days. Thanks
to Jackie and the entire Committee for all their hard work because
without their efforts this Reunion would not have happened! I
realized that while people have moved on with their lives and
families, we all have the common bond of our love for Long Beach,
the town we all grew up in. Great seeing everyone!"
- Randi Fleishman (Imberman)
"Thank you so much for
all your hard work and planning in making our reunion weekend
special! You all did an amazing job! It was great seeing everyone
again. I had a wonderful time."
- Cynthia Rotholz
"The committee did a
fabulous job! Everything ran smoothly for the weekend and it was
certainly a great value. It was more fun than expected. I'll be
there for the next one!"
- Marti Seiden (Neugarten)
"Better than I could
imagine. The number of people who attended is a tribute to the
people who ran it and to our class itself. This rekindled some
great friendships. We really have a lot of fantastic nice people
we grew up with!"
- Aaron Janoer
"My husband Joe and I
had such a wonderful evening. Thanks to all of you on the reunion
committee who worked selflessly so that all of us could benefit
and for an experience that was worth waiting thirty years for."
- June Wertheimer (Peralta)
"The weekend was really
perfect. There was nothing left out. You guys really worked hard
and for that, we thank you. We all had a great time and we're
still talking about it today. We connected with people we lost
contact with and I really can't thank you enough."
- Susan Mackston (Solomon)
"Thanks again to everyone
that planned such a fantastic and memorable reunion. You all did
a great job and I thought that it was an overwhelming success.
Seeing so many classmates and friends was something I will never
forget. Still talking about it 5 days later!"
- Lewis Chernick
"I enjoyed Saturday night!"
- David Fried
"A fantastic weekend!
The committee did a great job on everything, but mostly finding
so many people, even if we didn't graduate from Long Beach. We
all have LB sand in our shoes for life. Some people said to me
"A whole weekend? What are you going to do for three days?"
It gave some people a chance to go to one or the other in case
they had prior commitments. I say lets have one BIG 50th
birthday party for all of us!"
- Gail Kramer (Amato)
"To say thank you to
the reunion committee would never be enough to express appreciation
for this past weekend. This wasn't just about a high school reunion
- it was a moment to reflect on very happy LB memories that began
way before high school. From casual acquaintances to old best
friends, it was wonderful to see so many smiling faces and reconfirm
that we all still hold a very special LB bond."
- Sandy Reider (Brant)
"Great job! All your
hard work paid off and was well worth it."
- Cindy Lann (Christou)
"Excellent work by reunion
committee. Great venue, food, slideshow. Amazing turnout."
- Phil Nicholson

everyone involved in this past weekend enough. You guys did a
great job! The amount of work and passion that you put into it
will be remembered for all time. This weekend is a memory that
I will cherish forever."
- Doris Escalante
"It was three great affairs.
I enjoyed myself from the first evening to the brunch. Manor East
was a great place and everything was beautiful. Thank you for
all the hard work you did to have this reunion."
- Betsy Maldonado
"Thank you very much!
It was really neat to see so many people that I haven't seen in
- Bradley Scher
"Thank you to everyone
for all your hard work to make our reunion a very special one
- a weekend that will stay with me for a very long time!"
