HEAR YE, HEAR YE-

The Class of 1987 is celebrating our 20 Year High School Reunion on August 11, 2007 at 6:00pm. It’s going to be a wonderful evening aboard the Delta King. If you haven’t already done so, please submit your payment ($75/person) ASAP to:

Encina H.S. Class Reunion
217 Berkswell Ct.
Roseville, CA 95747

A lot of people have already sent in their money, so it looks like we’re going to have a great turn out.  Don’t be the one that misses out! It’s going to be a lot of fun catching up with all of our old friends and seeing what everyone is doing now. You will absolutely positively regret not coming. Don’t let the fact that you’ve put on a few extra pounds or lost a little (or a lot) of hair stop you from coming. Who cares what you look like! It’s all about catching up and seeing how everyone is doing now. I, for one, am excited to see all of you, especially after talking to many of you on the phone. I can already hear all of the “Remember when…” stories.

The festivities start at 6:00pm. If you’ve paid prior to the event, then your name tag (and guest’s name tag, if applicable) will be at the greeters table upon arrival. Your name tag will be your entry ticket into the reunion. Although, there will be several signs indicating where our reunion is being held, it’s in the Paddlewheel Banquet Room aboard the Delta King in Old Sacramento. Don’t forget your dancing shoes, because there’s a nice little dance floor and we’ll of course be enjoying tunes from the “Way Bitchin’ ’80’s. We’re also going to be auctioning off some very cool gifts, so please bring extra cash to buy lots of raffle tickets. Lastly, rather than having a formal sit down dinner, we will be having dinner type hors d’oeuvres, such as chicken & beef skewers w/Teriyaki sauce, salmon Florentine, penne pasta w/pesto sauce, grilled vegetable, Caesar salad…you get the idea..and dessert, of course.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all on August 11th. Until then, take care!

Occupation: Insurance Claims Specialist
MaritalStatus: Partnered for 14 years
Children/grandchildren: No children, but many many many nephews and nieces to keep me busy!
SinceGraduation: I moved down to San Diego to attend SDSU. College years were fun and filled with many study days & nights at the Upstart Crow in Seaport Village cramming it all in!
Cruised in my Fiat with my surfboard finding that perfect spot, that perfect wave on my down time.
Spent 3 1/2 years there and decided to return home to pursue Massage Therapy at Integrative Therapy School in downtown Sacramento. Had my own business for 4 years, but decided to do massage part time and mainly concentrated on sports events:
triathlons, marathons, cycling. I continued working in the grocery store business through College and Massage School as a Produce Manager, but felt I should be doing something else, so I pursued Insurance. Now I handle complex auto accidents, injuries, and settlements. I enjoy what I do and have felt rewarded in many ways in my career. Aside from work, I travel with friends...
went to England with my love, traveled to France with my little sissy, Vetica, traveled throughout Spain with my love and 3 other close friends, spent Christmas Eve at Midnight Mass at the Vatican and traveled Italy, took my love to Paris thereafter, spend a week each year at either St.
Martin, Cayman Islands, St. Thomas, Anguilla, or St. Barts because there's nothing like the Caribbean waters. I enjoy the simple things...
weekends with coffee and the paper, naps in the afternoon, date nights, dinner parties with great friends and good wine, a good book, good music venues, I'm pretty easy going. I love a good laugh and still consider myself a silly person! Life has been good to me... I'm blessed to have such a lovely person in my life and a large family that
keeps me quite busy and entertained!
Trivia: I once caught a flight to New York, rented a car when I got there, drove over 4 hours to a tiny town Mansfield Pennsylvania to sit at a coffee cafe to hear one of my favorite artists sing in front of a group of 12 over cappuccinos!
It was lovely & quite spontaneous! Cover charge was $2. I thought that was sweet!
BestFriends: My dear friends in school were Kelle and Kerre McRae, Abby Cheng, Cathy Mitchell, Loni Lucero, Sheila Kuntz, Carrie Horibata, Thomas Toth, and Julie Mumma.
Hobbies: I love photography, traveling with friends, Crossfit Centurion, cycling, snowboarding, surfing, hiking, dinner parties, taking in small music venues, good indie movies, foreign films, art museums, Antoni Gaudi Architecture, Gordan Parks Photography, beach bond fires, a great cappuccino, and family!
Kids: No children, but I absolutely love that I have 19 nephews and nieces... they keep me energized & so so silly!
GradeSchool: Went to Dyer Kelly Grade School and was friends with Marnel Terry, Robbie Hayes, Venessa Ozcan, Haley Minns, Tim Davis.
MiddleSchool: Went to Howe Avenue Junior High School and was friends with Julie Mumma, Morgana Sprague, Thomas Toth, Robbie Hayes, April and Kelly Denny.
MemorableTeachers: I had many that I am grateful
to: Mrs. Takeuchi, the late Mr. Figenshu, Mr.Marelich, Mr. Chambers, but the one I adored was Miss Watters. She was funny, classy, bright, and such an interesting person! I ran into her and she announced she would be retiring in 2010...
congratulations and enjoy your retirement! Well done and well deserved!
FavoriteMemory: Playing Powder Puff Football and taking Encina HS to 3rd Place in Sacramento... I was the Quarterback and we only had 13 or 14 players, so we had to play both offense and defense while other high schools had a ton of back up players. It was our first year playing and it was a blast! It may have been through Campus Life, but we represented our Apaches!
Stories: I feel fortunate to have had good wholesome friends and strict teachers who were passionate about their subjects... it was a time when you learned to have good work ethics, study hard, make wise decisions, have good friends and stay out of trouble, and you will succeed! I thank Hazel for teaching me the pathway to a good life!

Occupation: I'm currently working as a therapist/case manager for a mental health hospital...earning hours towards my MFT license.
Bio: I've moved around a lot with Tim...from Sacramento to South Bend, Indiana...to Reno, NV. Now we're here in Long Beach, CA - and we're not planning on going anywhere else anytime soon...thankfully.
Trivia: Probably the most ironic thing is the fact that I ended up marrying Tim Davis - the guy who broke my heart the summer before my Junior year.
Most of you who were friends with me already know *that* story! Anyway...we've been married now for about 17 years. Damn, we're old!
Friends: My best friends kinda changed some over the years. Freshman year - Becca, Debbie, Molly. Sophomore year - Trudie, Noel Hayes and Shannon Maile were added to the list, along with Pandora Callen, Linda Terkoski and Trina Pace. Junior year - Jerod & Jodi Pannell and Senior year - Alisa Grubb.
Hobbies: Well, surprisingly, I am really good at playing Golden Tee! This is serious business back in Indiana. I have always been interested in all thing metaphysical/spriritual, but not enough to be fully devoted to any one thing. Oh yeah, I fancy myself a decent kareoke singer!
Kids: Yikes! Well, we don't have any (yet). I am hoping that Tim and I will start our family once I am done with school. I do have a fabulous nephew,
though!
Grade_school: Creekside 2nd grade, Greer 3rd and Winterstein 4-6th.
Grade_school_friends: No one from Creekside I can remember. Greer was where I met Larry Veteto, Sean David and Greg Davis for the first time.
Winterstein, though, was where most of my friends hailed from: Debbie B, Molly, James Jones, Chris Krell, Danny Reid
Junior_high: Jonas Salk
Junior_high_friends: Most of the Winterstein folks, if not all. Some of my good friends from JS went on to other schools - Dion Pittman, Keith
Calcagno, Paige Johnson, Kerry Ritter to name a few
Memorable_teachers: Figenshu - being so disgusted by the lack of enthusiam amongst us students, that he threw his book in the garbage. And, of course, when he booted me out of class for needing to get the last word in an arguement. Eric Dahlin - Just for being so cool, but also for teasing me about my boyfriend, Paul - encouraging me, sometimes with money, to break up with him. Takeuchi (Chambers now..I believe) Just for being inventive and creative in teaching English. And, always giving great feedback that students could use to improve their skills. Mr. Record - For becoming so disturbed by a fellow student poking fun at him that he threw his notebook across the room! and finally, Ms. Gregori - For doing a complete 180 in AP English my senior year. She went from super cool to extremely difficult and bizzarre.
Favorite_memory: All my favorite memories at Encina took place when school was not in session (wink). There's one barefoot night I can remember
distinctly, but I am not at liberty to discuss it.
Story: I know many interesting stories, but I don't wanna get anyone in trouble.

I will let you know once the book is published. If you want to be removed from the email list, please let me know and I will remove your name.

Occupation: Criminal Defense Attorney
Bio: Working and going to school. Graduated from St. Mary's in 1992. Got an MA in English in 1998 from Sac State and a law degree (JD) in 2002
from McGeorge. I was admitted to the Bar in 2002, did a couple years in civil, hated civil, and got a job with the alternate public defender's office in Madera County, California. Have been having fun practicing criminal law and dependency law. I love the job. After a few years, I hope to come back to the Sacramento area to practice criminal law (or maybe the coast).
  Got married in 1997 and had kids in 2001 and 2005. Occasionally, I watch my kids and think how great they are and then it dawns on me that these are my kids! I am a father (and maybe a good one).
  Another wierd thing is that high school seems like a lifetime away. It's like it didn't happen to me. I look at old pictures and don't remember when they were taken. Actually, a lot of things that occurred after high school seem like a lifetime away. It's weird. Take care, every one.
Friends: Bob McPherson
Hobbies: Kids take up all my free time
Kids: Larissa Colette Beauchamp Age 4, David Fraser Beauchamp Age 1
My kids are both very young. They seem ahead of the curve (although my son, David, scares me by climbing on high stuff). Both seem smarter than
I ever was and have fun personalities. They are always laughing. And they make me laugh, too.
Grade_school: Merryhill
Favorite_memory: Most of my favorite memories from this time did not occur at school (and I wasn't really happy at school anyway). I think my favorite memories were drinking beer and wine coolers (do people still drink wine coolers?) down at the river on spring days in 1986 and 1987 with friends (from Encina and elsewhere). Also, Bob McPherson and I skipped school one day and took my mom's Mustang convertable to San Francisco and hung out there. Nothing interesting. It was just being there.
Story: I honestly can't remember a thing.

EX-SACRAMENTAN DIES IN BELIZE PLANE CRASH
A 1987 Encina High School graduate and his bride were killed Friday in a plane crash in Belize blamed on Tropical Storm Gamma's heavy rain and
winds.
Newlyweds Douglas Scratchley Jr. and Cristy Dy Scratchley of St. Petersburg, Fla., and the Belizean pilot were aboard a private plane belonging to an exclusive jungle resort owned by the filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. All three reportedly died in the crash when the plane fell into a ravine, according to US officials in Belize. Civil aviation authorities in Belize said heavy winds and rains from Gamma were a factor in the crash. The couple were married Nov. 12 in St. Petersburg, said David May of Sacramento, Douglas Scratchley's stepfather.

Trivia: I am a wealth of meaningless trivia.  If you are ever on "Who Wants to Be Millionaire" I AM "your phone a friend!"  :-)

high school memories" are:  Carlo Gomez, Charles McBrian, Chris Marley, Dave Martasian, Andrew Boyd, Debbie Bacigalupi, Erin Yeast, Erin Snyder, Morgana, Shannon, Sharon, Justine, Nicole, Jennifer, Trudy, Linda, Mike, Tom, Jerry......etc.  :-)
Hobbies: Other than spending time with my girls (which occupies a majority of my time), I still love sports, watching and playing; golf, football, softball, jogging, pretty much anything.

Bio: After I graduated from Encina I went to Sac State for a year, that did not work out.  So, got into Mortgage Lending and have been doing it every
since.  Up until May 2004 I was the Operations Manager for RBC Mortgage. Now I am taking the summer off.  My husband is a Sacramento Police Officer, with his schedule it benefits us for me to stay at home for a while.  We have lived in Elk Grove for 4 years now.  We bought our first home here back in June of 2000 before my daughter turned one.  Now we have two beautiful kids.  I have been married for 6 1/2 years.  Can't wait until the 7 year
itch is over!!  I party with my friends still.  We hang out at 74-40 on Saturday nights sometimes.  I go out with Michelle Stampp (now Ingram). Nicole Rene Gagne (now Giddings) and my kids play with Lan Nguyen's kids (now Soohoo).  But I have alot of parties and go out.  You party animals need to give me a call.  Oh. and by the way, that Senior Picture in the year book.  Don't let that fool you.  I am fine as ever. As most of you fellas that saw me at out ten year class reunion can agree to that. See you at the 74-40. For those of you who do not get out as much, it's in Citrus Heights on Auburn Blvd. off Antelope.
Trivia: Nothing, except I still got it!  Remember I was voted best dancer in our class.  So, watch out now!!  Hi Trudy!!!  So, where is Joe Yates? I miss
all you people.  Let's kick it some time, why wait until the next reunion.

Occupation: Classified Personnel Specialist at Washington Unified School District Office in West Sacramento.
Bio: I received my BA degree in Humanities and Religious Studies from CSUS. I married Brandon, a high school English and Drama teacher, on January 3, 2004, we closed escrow on our first house on March 31, and I just started my job at Washington Unified two weeks ago. It's been an amazing year, so far, but I'm hoping for a lull really soon.
Friends: My best friends in high school were Nicole Cross, Cherish Cooley and Morgana Sprague, and, honestly, I've lost contact with all of them.
Hobbies: At the moment, Brandon and I are enjoying working on the new house and in the yard. I love to garden. We like to camp whenever we can (we were registered at REI for the wedding) and love to go wine tasting. We are looking forward to getting a dog as soon as the grass grows in our backyard.
Kids: No kids. We're waiting to see how we do with the dog, first.
Grade_school: H.E. Winterstein from grades 4 through 6.
Grade_school_friends: A lot of us from the class of '87 also went to Winterstein and Jonas Salk together.

Memorable_teachers: I remember being really inspired by my English teachers, Mrs. Takeuchi and Mrs. Pierce. In fact, I began college as an English major, not a Humanities major. I remember Mr. Dutton really well, mostly because I had to struggle through two years of Geometry with him. (Yep, I repeated it. Lame!)
Favorite_memory: Drill Team was one of my favorite times because I was on the team with some of my best friends.
Story: That really wouldn't be a very good idea. I think I'll just keep quiet.

After graduating from St. Mary's College of California, I looked around for a job, didn't know what I wanted to do and ended up working in Yosemite National Park for a few months. It was a tremendous experience for me and I ended up meeting the woman whom I am now married to: Dedra. After Yosemite, I took a long road trip with Dedra across the country.
   A few days after the trip, I enrolled in a graduate program at CSUS. I graduated from there with a Master's Degree in English.
   While at CSUS, I got a job with the state doing public relations for the Smog Check program and the Bureau of Automotive Repair. I spent a few years there and enjoyed my time. During that period, I got married and bought a house.
   My wife and I were married in Yosemite on October 26, 1997, after dating about 4 years.
   In 1999, I decided that life at the State wasn't enough for me, so I quit and enrolled in Law School at McGeorge School of Law, here in Sacramento. I was in the top 13% of my class and made Law Review and have two published articles to my credit. One was recently made required reading in an Elder Law class at McGeorge.
   I graduated with distinction (sort of like cum laude) in May 2002 and took the Bar in July 2002.
   In December 2001, my wife and I had our first child, Larissa Colette Beauchamp.

Occupation: Personnel Specialist for Youth Authority
Bio: I went to San Jose State for one year...to bowl, not get an education.  I then moved to Fresno and attended one year at their Junior College and then came home.  I've taken a few classes here and there at American River College, but never finished.  I've worked in accounting, as an administrative assistant (more than once), and finally landed with the state about 4 1/2 years ago.
  I got married in March of '96 to a great guy named Roger.  I had my first son Taylor in September of '97 and my second son Skyler in June of '01.  We bought a house in North Highlands the same month we got married and are still there.  
Friends: My friends were Wendy Onstine (and yes I finally got a hold of her), Denise Souza (saw her a few times after graduation, but haven't been in touch since), Cherish Cooley (we ran into each other at Jury Duty and have occasionally e-mailed), Kim Trehern (haven't seen her since graduation, but e-mailed recently).
Hobbies: I actually gave up bowling last year when I was pregnant and with 2 kids I just don't have the time anymore.  Our family has quads (4-wheel atv's) and we recently purchased a Weekend Warrior (travel trailer that hauls toys!!!) so that we can go as a family to places like Sand Mountain and Pismo Beach.  When my husband finds more places with sand dunes, we'll be there too!  We also enjoy going to drag races and motorcross races.  I'm sure my 4 year old will soon have us involved in some other things such as BMX or go kart racing...he loves to go fast!!!
Kids: Taylor is 4 years old (almost 5) and Skyler is 11 mo. old.  I never thought I'd end up with 2 boys.  They are so much fun!  The oldest looks just like his dad and the youngest looks like me.  I think we're done !?! 
Grade_school: K-3 at Thomas Edison and 4-6 at Mission Avenue
Grade_school_friends: Wendy Onstine, Tyrone Harding, Sparkie Davis...that's all I can remember...K-3 was a long time ago!
Junior_high: Jonas Salk
Junior_high_friends: Wendy Onstine, Al Phillips (I had the biggest crush on him and he liked my best friend, Wendy), Tyrone Harding & Sparkie Davis (if my memory is correct).  I had other friends, but they went on to Rio.  There is one other person that I'd love to find and her name was Tracy Marco. 
Memorable_teachers: Mr. Dahlin, no explanation needed, he was great!  Mrs. Young because she gave me my first job.  Mr. Figenshu, only because he locked me out of a final and my dad had to come down to the school.  Oh, and what about Mr. Record who tried to fail me because I got the chicken pox.  I had to go to night school at AR because of him.
Favorite_memory: When I finally made the drill team my senior year, after 4 attempts.  I think they felt sorry for me.  Oh well, it was fun for me!

Occupation: Operations Manager
Bio: After graduating from Encina, I attended American River College for a couple of years but just couldn't stay focused enough to stick with with it and finish up. "You're a bright student, Erik, but you really need to apply yourself", the instructors would say. They were, of course, correct. I ended up moving out and going to work full time to support myself and am still with that same company today. Anyway, school was school and work is work but I always found myself drawn to things I was really intense about. Biology was always an interest and photography, as well. In the early 90's, there was an explosion in popularity of reptiles as pets and several special-interest magazines appeared. An acquaintance who knew I had a background in this field suggested I submit some work to them. To make a long story short, I now specialize in photographing venomous reptiles and arthropods (bugs, more or less), have travelled to Mexico to shoot crocodiles and rattlesnakes twice, have become pretty good friends with many zoo
Trivia: I've been stung by scorpions, bitten by a venomous lizard, slept beneath a tree full of vampire bats, and caught more than 1,000 snakes.
Friends: Carlo Gomez and Alex Philo were my best friends. I remember Cathy Mitchell and her boyfriend BJ (don't recall his last name), too. Have no idea where any of them are today.
Hobbies: The travel and photography, of course. It's difficult for some people to understand how intentionally putting yourself in a position where you might be gravely injured could be enjoyable, yet I find it highly rewarding. I also speak and organize field trips a couple of times each year for our local reptile and amphibian study group, the Northern California Herpetological Society.
Grade_school: Hubert H. Bancroft Elementary
Grade_school_friends: Family moved after grade school, so only new friends at Encina.

Memorable_teachers: Mr. Figenshu, for his laid-back demeanor, Mrs. Kojima, for her energy, and Mr. Dahlin, just for being a good guy.

Occupation: Swimming Pool Technician
Bio: After graduation, I worked @ Vic's IGA.  I dropped out of college after 2 years of not knowing what I wanted to do.  Then married my high school sweetheart, Kristine Monday.  I went part-time at the grocery store and started servicing swimming pools part-time for another company.  I then joined a band.  The three occupations were a tough juggling act, until I left the grocery store, the band broke up and I started my own pool business.  I'm still happily married to Kristine and we have a son who is now 2 years old, born in 1998.  Currently, I'm building my pool business and enjoying life as much as possible.

I worked on the A-3 Skywarrior as an Aviation Electrician's Mate/Alcohol Abuser for Electronic Warfare Squadron 33 or better known as VAQ-33 and traveled everywhere from Hawaii to Norway. Then got out just after the Gulf War (1992) and couldn't, or maybe wouldn't, find a job to save my life. So after partying like a Rock Star at the Village on Howe Ave with guys like Jeff Brooks,Mark Puthuff, Mike Fuller, Stacey Anderson, James Jones, Chris Krell, Greg Davis and occasionally waking up to Sean David on my living room floor I decided to try school once more. Four years and the GI Bill later I graduated from CSU, Chico with BA'S in History and Philosophy in 1997. I'm sure to find a job I like with this BA thing on my side, right? WRONG, after a lack luster performance Selling Graphic Arts Gear for Xerox I decided to go back to school, thus I attend the modest campus of Lincoln Law School in Sacramento and hope to graduate in 2003. Bob Perez-thats all Almonds!

Occupation: Self Employed...Trade Winds Appliance Parts and Service
Bio: I was trained by an appliance service company learning how to diagnose and repair restaurant equipment, that lasted for about four years.  Then the opportunity came along for me to embark on a journey being a delivery manager for the leading pharmeceutical services company dealing with hospitals and convelescent homes, this lasted for about four years. During the Pharmacy days: My Father "Lew" (provider of the free snacks), (ha ha ha - football team) was diagnosed with cancer and passed away near the end of 1994. I then decided to move westward to Maui, Hawaii. I landed on this little rock on January 5th, 1995. I held an engineering job with one of the largest time share companies for the majority of my first three years here. I then found a need on the island that very few people were doing. You guessed it !!! I opened my first business called Trade Winds Appliance. I offered appliance repair service to the restaurant industry here. I started it part time while I was involved with the engineering  position I held. It grew quite fast and I eventually was able to bid farewell to the engineering job. Now, three years after I started the business, I made a website to sell parts to people that are in need of such things.
Trivia: I am now married for the second time. The first bride; I won't divulge her name (out of respect) but some of you may know who she is (hint hint).  My second wife Geanelli just gave birth to my first and only child, her second child (from a previous marriage). I met her here in Hawaii 6 months after I moved to Maui. She and I are doing very well and are planning to buy a house soon.
