We have some good news to pass on to all who are considering booking the Reunion cruise. After verifying with Princess cruises and Kathryn our travel agent the offer that I posted yesterday that was supposed to end Feb 3rd has been extended to Feb 29, 2016! This is the Twice as Nice offer for our cruise April 29, 2017 on the Ruby Princess! So that being said I hope you will join us on this fun filled cruise. To book in our group, please contact our AAA agent Kathryn Kiperash at 208-666-5701 or e-mail her at

Mention the BHS reunion cruise. Do not go thru Princess cruises to book because Kathryn is the agent and deals with Princess. Also AAA is offering until Feb 16th an additional OBC (on board credit) up to a $100 per room depending on the category chosen. There will be other perks added for the group as we add more bookings.

Any questions please contact The BHS Cruise Committee at

Just a quick note, for all that received the e-mail regarding the 2017 cruise, the cruise committee is asking that if you are interested please give us your vote on your priority pick even if you voted last year. We will then pick the cruise that has the majority votes and run with that. If you are interested and not on our mailing list please send your e-mail address to and we will send you the choices with prices.
Your cruise committee,
Carol Baker and Donna Luce Neitman



We have been watching the prices for Alaska and so far there have not been any great sales. The prices for the Coastal cruises are normally a better deal, but we are open to whatever works for everyone.

Prices change every day and sales come and go. Once we decide on which cruise we are thinking about we can set a date and lock in a price for those who would like to put a refundable deposit down. If the prices drop (and often they do) we can monitor them and you can arrange to get your cruise re-priced, as long as it is before final payment. All prices are per person.

In addition to these costs, you will need to think about airfare.  
Option1 - would go out of LA and would require a flight home from Vancouver
Option 2 and 3 – would be roundtrip out of Los Angeles port.
Option 4 – would be roundtrip out of Seattle

September 28, 2015 UPDATE
The class of '67 will be celebrating our 50th reunion in 2017 and is planning a fun filled cruise. Although we had previously voted on which cruise we wanted there was also an interest in an Alaskan cruise. Pricing was not available at the time for Alaska when we voted on the others so the Cruise Committee has decided to wait until pricing is available which should be soon. The three choices at the time of voting will be California Coastal, Alaska and Mexico. In the mean time - start saving your money. If you have any questions that you would like to ask the Cruise Committee and do not want to put it on Facebook you can send all correspondence to If you had previously voiced your interest through FB or at our last reunion you will be hearing from us through the above e-mail to ensure we have your correct contact information.
Your Cruise Committee,
Carol and Donna

Stephen Philip Walker, BHS '67 (1949-2015)

Stephen Philip Walker
January 3, 1949 - February 26, 2015

Today, I received the following sad news:


I just found out that a classmate of ours from BHS class of ‘67 had passed away. Steve Walker and I had been friends since 8th grade at Luther Burbank Junior High. I got a call from his neighbor in regards of a letter I had sent Steve and he informed me that Steve passed away in his sleep on February 26, 2015 at the age of 66. His 66th birthday was in January. Steve and I played a lot of golf together during high school up a DeBell. Steve was living in Pacoima, CA at the time of his death.


William B. McMillan
Class of ‘67

In the Ceralbus yearbook under Steve's name is says, "Coll. Prep. Marching Band 10; Camera CLub 10, 11, 12; Chemistry Club 12. Looks to the future at a JC."

Here is a 2009 photo from our class reunion.

Please keep Steve's family and friends in your prayers.


Diane Ward
I am so sorry to hear this. I knew Steve all there way through school in Burbank and always liked him. Many prayers for his family. I am sure he will be greatly missed.

Betty Worland
Very Sad! RIP Steve! My deepest condolences to your family and friends!

I'm so sorry to hear about Steve. He lived on the next street over from Screenland. Our back yards met. I would climb over the fence and myself an others had fun playing games. Good memories of him.

Adele Bassett

Jo Elaine Morton

Kathleen Becker
I lived next door to Steve, his mom and dad, Irmadale and Barney, on Pepper St. As a matter of fact Steve was my first "client" as a babysitter. I've often wondered about him, did he marry, have children? What did he do for a living? Nicest family you could ever hope to meet. Sorry to hear of his passing.
