Senior citizens living at the facility on West Lowell Avenue mingled with Tracy High School students seven decades younger during a Tracy High reunion.
The old-timers, nine of whom are Tracy High graduates, donned “Once a Bulldog, Always a Bulldog” T-shirts to take part in the reunion, which included displays, food and dancing.
The 40 students taking part were members of the THS leadership group and dance team and even Brutus the Bulldog, the school mascot.
Tracy High memorabilia, El Portal yearbooks and photos were on display in the Astoria Gardens reception area.
Outside, Mike Rosenblum’s Jazz Band from Stockton played as seniors and students danced together. The students performed the school line dance, and everyone sang the alma mater.
An original version of the alma mater was sung by Jean Woolever Brown, Class of 1940.
Cindy Salentine, Astoria Gardens program coordinator, called the reunion “a big success.”
