Robin Williams Speaks to Redwood’s Class of ’87

August 17, 2014 – Much has been said lately about Robin Williams’ incredible generosity and kindness.  Redwood High School experienced it all first-hand in 1987 when Robin Williams spoke during our graduation ceremony.  I created a little slideshow to watch as you listen to his sage advice.  Thank you for everything, Robin!  — Jason Lewis

Got photos or old home movies of classic Marin?

Do you have an old photo or video of something about Marin that is different than it is today?  If so, PLEASE don’t throw it away!  It’s HISTORY!  Let’s scan it and put it up on MarinNostalgia.org for everyone to reflect upon and enjoy.  And don’t hesitate to leave comments on stuff you see on this site.  Your written memories are just as important as photos.

Please email Jason Lewis to send in your photos.

Enjoy! — Jason

    Hurts to know someone who made us all laugh so hard and so often was overcome by depression. Please, if you are feeling that level of depression right now please tell someone today, even if it seems pointless. http://www.marinnostalgia.org/portfolio/robin-williams-on-tunnel/
