Attention BHS Class of '55... REUNION TIME!
Today my sister, Patricia (Palmer) Peck forwarded to me the following email regarding her upcoming reunion. Please pass the word - THANKS!
Happy 2010. Here's to a great year.
Since the reunion is coming up the evening of Friday, September 10, 2010, we are getting an early start by checking e-mail addresses and in some cases home addresses where people have changed one or both addresses and have forgotton to inform us.
We are excited about the next reunion as we think it will be a fun affair with live music and great food.
You will be receiving your invitation by snail-mail around March with pertinent details of costs, hotel fees, etc.
I just received an e-mail from Hank Court and he was good enough to volunteer to pass on three more of our classmates information who have fallen through the cracks. Please, if any of you have other classmates with which you have kept in contact through the years, it would be a great help if you could take a minute and send us their e-mail/home address information so they can be included in our mail-outs. Classmates move or change their e-mail addresses and forget to inform us, and, voila! there they go.
I Googled a handful of classmates who's e-mail had changed or we had only partial information such as just a name with nothing else or a street address with no city or vice-versa. In one instance the feedback included a telephone number. I called the number and asked the person answering if he went to Burbank High. The answer was yes and what followed was really amazing. He lived in the state of Washington in a forest located an hour's drive from any town. When I told him who I was and what I wanted he was amazed. His wife had died a year ago and he had been talking to another "lost" classmate (whose wife also is deceased) a week earlier saying he wished he could find out about our class reunions because he really wanted to attend and get in contact with his old friends from BHS. Wow! Talk about timing.
His name is Charles Whitton and his friend's name is Jim Seaberg. If any of you want to contact Charles or Jim let me know and I will give you their info.
We think it is going to be a great reunion and we are so glad to see so many of you are planning to make the effort to have some fun and reunite with your classmates.
It would be a great help, also, if you could give us some feedback as to your plans. The earlier we know your plans, the easier our jobs become.
Thanks so much in advance for your help.
