Happy Monday Bulldogs!
I just want to keep everyone who has responded thus far up to date on this very special event!  So far we have 38 classmates who have responded favorably to a cruise to celebrate our 50th reunion in 2017. Some of you are requesting double staterooms and even some quads (four to a room) and some haven't said yet.  Whatever the request is I'm sure we can be accommodated.  As the surveys come in I am logging what everyone wants, along with the time of year and am very conscious of budgets!  That being said, so far we are looking at a 7 night Alaska in spring, summer or fall.  Most of you are positive on sailing on either Celebrity, Princess or Holland America.

With that being said, we will go with the majority and, hopefully, everyone will have time to clear their calendars and save up some of our well earned social security dollars to join in the fun!  The cruise lines have not opened up their books for 2017 - it should be soon - and then the negotiations for the best group rate and best amenity package for our group will begin!

I just want all of you to know that you will be well taken care of!  I have been in the travel industry since, well.....along time!  Currently I am the Sales Manager for Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Company and we sell 5 Star river cruises in Europe, Russia, Asia, Vietnam and Cambodia, Egypt and India.  Previous to that I worked in Sales for one of the major cruise lines and as a retail agent as well so am pretty familiar with what needs to be done.  My husband also is a travel associate for one of the largest Cruise One franchises in the country and he will be doing the bookings, etc.  I am giving him your contact information for his files so you will also be receiving emails in regards to other travel opportunities for both yourselves and your families.  His name is Marc Weitzman just so you don't delete before reading!

Again, be sure to share this adventure with other classmates - both in our class and any others!  Also feel free to include your families!  The more the merrier!  I am totally open to all suggestions, opinions, etc. so feel free to send them over.

Hope to hear from you soon

Q & A

Q1. Should submit a survey even if they are not sure they can come?

A1. Absolutely. We aren't asking for a commitment - just trying to determine if there is interest (which there is) and if so, preferred destination, time of year, and most importantly budget! We can't even get quotes yet - when that happens, we will send out itinerary, ship, date, and price structure. Then we will send out a booking request where classmates send back their preferred stateroom category request, names, credit card for deposit. Also - with the cruise lines, deposits are required but 100% refundable if they cancel prior, to final payment, which is about 120 days prior to departure. Hope this helps.

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.

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.
