Allegra, Antonia (Lastreto)

I wish my life would allow including the sure-to-be-terrific Reunion, but that's not so. Know that I'm with you all in spirit as I travel to Baja California to review a cooking school that was fun to launch at Rancho la Puerta. Who knew in the ’60s which adventures we would pursue? I launch cooking schools, conferences for food writers and wine writers, and I coach professionals in those two fields. My husband, Donn Black, and I share six adult children and six grandchildren, ages 5 to 22. And I'm still singing--alto in a trio here in Napa Valley. Here's a toast to you all, with wishes for a marvelous reunion!

Rowe, Fred

Freshman Dorm: Day Student/Off Campus

Fred Rowe ’68 writes, "As a result of taking ROTC, I ended up in the Army in August 1968. Eventually, I went to helicopter flight school and served a year in Vietnam. I got out after 5 years, came back to San Jose State as a pre-med bio major and attended med school at UC-San Diego, graduating at age 35. After emergency medicine residency, I worked for 21 years for Kaiser-Permanente in the Sacramento area. I retired in 2005, joined the local Rotary club and got way more involved than I ever intended to. My two sons were Broncos in the classes of 2009 and 2011 and my wife, an SJSU grad, is probably the most gung-ho of the four of us over SCU."
