Congratulations Redwood City. Moving from Montreal Quebec in the mid 1960's, Redwood City was a welcoming place in the sun. Graduating from Sequoia H.S gave me the opportunity to get scholarships and continue my education. Friendships made there, have continued until now. I have been blessed by living in some of the most awesome places in the world, including Jerusalem, Israel.
Those first two years in Redwood City were a wonderful introduction to the American way of life and the privilege of being a Californian babe.Thank you for the doors you helped open.
