Sunset High School Class of 1983
40-year reunion!!



Hello '83 Sunset Apollos!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 19, 2023 (5-10pm)......for the Sunset High School class of '83, 40-year reunion at Willamette Garage in West Linn!

We've come a long way since 1983. Our faces, our figures, our addresses, and family may have changed in the last 40 years, but we'll always remember the wonderful (and not so wonderful) times we shared in high school. Memories are one of life's most cherished posessions. Our reunion is about renewing old frienships-laughing and sharing stories of our years at Sunset.

You managed to find this reunion info page, but we are still looking for others. Please help us locate missing alumni so they can know about our event too! Names, cell numbers, email addresses, etc!

What will be different about the 40-year reunion, compared to the 10, 20 and 30 year big reunions? We are planning a low-thrills event; No fancy ballroom, no alumni program, no catered meal, no fancy name tags with our yearbook photos on it. Just old friends getting together!! Plus, no tickets to purchase! Just RSVP, so we know you are coming.

What to eat and drink? Willamette Garage currently has 8 food carts, plus a full pub bar. So come hungry (and thirsty)! Dress is casual. We'll be outside AND inside, rain or shine. Let's hope Mother Nature is on our side that night! And also note that Willamette Garage will also be open to the general public during our event, but we'll have a cordoned off area just for us. Spouses/guests are welcome. Parking? There's about 50 parking spots on the main drag (Willamette Falls Dr.), plus neighborhood street parking is available. Carpooling/Uber/Lyft are highly recommended.

All the other details are a work-in-progress, but we wanted to at least get the word out on date and location, so people can make their travel plans.

To re-connect with "Sunset class of '83" alumni, you can join the facebook group page-->> here!! There's 260+ Sunset '83 alumni in there already, so you should recognize a lot of names and faces. It's a "private group", so you'll have to answer a couple easy questions to get in. If you're not on facebook, no worries! All the reunion info will be on this webpage.

On May 28, 2023, we sent out an email announcing this reunion to those we had an email address for. We had 544 email addresses to work with. Of that, about 1/3 of the email's were outdated ("mail delivery fail"), plus for lots of people, we had 2 or even 3 email addresses for. So basically, we were shooting at lot of targets, but having quite a few misses. Plus we don't really know how many of our emails ended up in junk/spam folders and were never seen by the intended target. With that being said, if you did NOT get the May 28 email newsletter and want to be added to the list for future messages, let us know your current email address. Just email me:

Looking forward to our event!!
~ Shelly Lyda-Elston, Christy Bennett-Hanes, Bryan Constans, Michelle Unger, Chrissy Greco, and Robin Cressy.


p.s. You can RSVP to the event page on facebook and/or to my email and/or send me missing alumni contact info: Robincressy (at)
Please write "Sunset 1983" and your name in the subject line.

Video project!

May 6, 2023: A couple weeks ago, Mitch Maurer calls me up and we get to chatting about the 40-year reunion. And he comes up with an idea: "What if we make some kind of fun video where Sunset '83 alumni each share a memory from high school".

Here ya go!
