Oh What a Night!

Well, we did it! Our reunion was a huge success. I hope that everyone enjoyed the activities and events. It was two nights of reliving memories and creating new friendships. It was so good to see everyone and their families. We missed all of you who were not able to attend.

We are working on creating a slide show of all the events. If you would like to send in some of your pictures, please send them to We need a good copy of the group pictures taken last night. These pictures are DIFFERENT than the ones for the reunion video.

If you would like to send in pictures for the actual reunion video (even ones from high school) please send them to Joe Salmond. If they are from high school, they need to be scanned. Please keep in mind that Joe and his wife are welcoming a new baby today, so he may not respond right away. You can send the pictures to

The reunion videos are on sale now, you may buy them here on the blog. They are $10 until Saturday, August the 15th. After the 15th, they will go up to $15. We will continue to sell the videos until the end of August. We are hoping to have the videos finished and mailed out by the first part of September. Remember, the money goes towards future reunions. We will also continue to accept donations.

For those of you are Facebook, please join the Northridge Class of 1998 group. It will be a good way of keeping in touch throughout the upcoming years. It will also be a way to get information about any activities that the group does in the future.

Thank you to everyone who came, donated, bought raffle tickets and videos. We couldn't have done this without you!

Reunion Video

We have been working on a reunion video that is a compilation of highlights from our years at Northridge High School. Following the reunion, we will be asking everyone who attended the family picnic and/or the dinner to send in pictures/videos from the two days. Those pictures will then be added to the compilation to make a final reunion video that will be available for purchase. The videos will be $10 and you may pay for your copy the night of the picnic or online at

Games and Activities
We have a variety of activities planned for all children attending the picnic. The activities are centered around a “Knight” theme. We will send the kids on a Knight adventure that begins with them becoming a Knight and ending with them “fighting a dragon.”
There is also a playground close to the picnic that the kids are welcome to play on.

We have a variety of awesome prizes available and we would like to thank everyone who helped us in this effort.

As the reunion staff, we would ask each classmate to participate in our raffle drawings or make a donation to our class reunion fund. In order to plan and organize future reunions, we will need help from everyone.

We look forward to seeing all of you!!!

Reunion News

It is hard to believe that the reunion is just days away, and I know that I am looking forward to spending time with old friends. There are probably many questions about the details of the reunion events and we hope to have those questions answered with itineraries for both nights that will be emailed(reunion dinner) and posted on here (family picnic). Please be sure to check your emails in the next couple days.

We also have NINE spots still available for the reunion dinner, so anyone who would still like to purchase tickets, just follow the link on the left. If you have any questions or concerns about buying tickets, please contact me at Anyone who purchases tickets this last week, will have to use their PayPal receipt as entrance as we will not be making anymore tickets.

We are still looking for monetary donations and any help with getting prizes for the raffle. The ultimate goal behind the prize drawings is to raise money for future reunions as we started from scratch this time around.

Please continue to check back here for any important announcements throughout this week.

Thank you for all your support. Please contact me with any questions,
