  • My family moved to Palo Alto in 1957. Last year, our class of 1966 at Cubberly celebrated its 50 year reunion. Since then, several classmates suggested we have a reunion in 2018 to celebrate our 70th birthdays. I will be interested in your museum opening next year. Since Cubberley High school is no longer in operation, our high school does not have a designated web site like Palo Alto and Gunn high schools have on the internet. Perhaps this would be an excellent opportunity to exchange information on our high school. If we were to organize an event of some sort when our class is in Palo Alto for our “reunion”. Since our plans are flexible at this point, it is certainly possible to co-ordinate our dates with the museum.
