BHS Centennial Celebration Sept 11-14, 2008

Next year there is a 100 year old party for BHS and below are the details!

Hi Cathy,

Thank you for your email. There is not yet an active website for the Centennial, but we hope to have the official site up by mid-November. The address will be

The main Centennial Celebration date will be September 11-14, 2008, and we have plenty of exciting events planned.

Please encourage alums to put these dates on their calendars. We will also be
rededicating the BHS War Memorial on this next Memorial Day, 2008. That will be the first Centennial event which will culminate a year later with the graduation of the Centennial class in June of 2009.

I am attaching an alumni interview form (below) which you may print out and distribute or email to interested alums. Please encourage them to email it
to any alums they know as well. We are trying to get it out to as many alums as possible.

We are having an evening planning reception on Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00pm in the BHS Library. Anyone interested in helping with the
Centennial is welcome to attend.

I am sorry we do not yet have our Centennial publications finished, but I hope this helps. If anyone has questions they can email me at this address until the website is up, or can call 818-558-4700 x57808.

I hope you have a wonderful reunion on Saturday, and that many of you will plan
to join us next year for the Centennial celebration.
