A group of Riekes Alumni gathered for a Fernside Reunion to reminisce.  The Riekes Center was born over 20 years ago out of Garys home, which at the time was located on Fernside Rd in Woodside CA.  For more about the early years of the Riekes Center check out our interactive timeline on the history page.
