Letter: Correction on Regional Heritage photo

I would like to make a small correction to the eighth-grade graduation photograph printed in the Almanac several weeks ago. The date was 1957, not 1959. The school was Portola Valley School; Corte Madera had not yet been built.

The student I recognize and remember well, the young man in the last row, wearing a dark suit, white carnation and handkerchief in pocket is my son Mike Rose. Mike came to stay with me for eighth grade, and I proudly handed him his diploma. School board member Bob Paul handed out the other diplomas and saved Mike's for me. It was pleasant surprise for us.

Those were wonderful years!
