Psssst. If you're a graduate of La Cañada High School and are looking to reconnect with classmates, there's an opportunity Friday night to do just that.
I learned via a Facebook posting by Rora Melendy, a member of the LCHS Class of '85, that former Spartans from all classes will be welcome for a "fun pre-reunion time" at 7 p.m. at The Yard House in Pasadena's Paseo Colorado mall. That gathering will be followed later the same evening by a move to Barney's Beanery.
I'm not ruling it out entirely, but I probably won't make the events Melendy is describing, as my own LCHS class is holding its reunion cocktail party Friday night at another Pasadena venue, the Hilton. We tend to get on a roll talking and laughing together and it's tough to break up the gathering, even though we know we're seeing each other the next night at the main event: the reunion dinner.
