BHS Committee Meeting results
Medicare Party to be August 15, 2015!
Held 5/2/2015 at Ray Moore's house
We a great meeting at Ray’s house last Saturday. Over 20 people showed up and a great time was had by all, with Potluck food and drinks, and a mini-reunion.
We did conduct some business as well. The Date, time, and other particulars for the 2015 “Medicare Party” were determined as follows:
- Date: Sat., August 15, 2015
Time: Happy Hour at 2pm, regular party starts 3pm, Dinner at 5pm, and fun until whenever.
Location: Once again, Jim and Marilyn Larson have volunteered to Host at their place in Ferndale. Directions/Maps coming later. We ask that people try to each bring a folding chair or such to help with seating supplies. We do have some for those who can’t bring one.
Food/Dinks: It will be Potluck as before, and Jim Larson and Steve Birman will be in charge of Deep Frying Turkeys again. Drinks BYOB. And if all goes well, Jell-O shots will be available again too. :)
Music: Mp3’s and video’s including past reunions. Large Poster prints of group photos from past major reunions, and photo albums of all pics as well will be available to view. Also, our Binders with Grade School and Jr. High photos will be available too. If you have any photos from those eras please bring them, they are always a huge hit! We will have a scanner available on site.
- Tables etc. will be handled by Wally and Ray.
- Paper Plates, plastic utensils, decorations, etc. – Marilyn, Linda, and Karyn.
Collections: Paula Pazaski Hovde will again be in charge of collecting $5.00 per classmate to help pay for costs (any leftover balance goes to our reunion fund).
Web site and Facebook
postings: This info will also be posted on our site www.BHS1968.org
as well as in our BHS1968 Group on FB.
Evites will be sent out as well. Be sure to RSVP to your eVite so we know who’s coming or not. If you don’t get an eVite by the end of May, let me know so I can make sure your name and current email are on the eVite roster.
- We also talked about our big 50 Year Reunion – Time Flies! - coming in 2018. The consensus was that we should do something very similar to our 40 Year Reunion, and that the Lakeway Inn has served us well in the past and is our preferred location (easy to find, right off the freeway, rooms right there, easy to deal with and great service in the past). Dena has agreed to review our agreement from last time and to touch base with Lakeway Inn on matters such as lead time and reserving the room, costs, etc.
Reminder: We still have T-shirts on sale from last year. Go to www.bhs1968.org/sales.htm

You also will be receiving some email surveys from us in the near future. We are exploring some ideas such as Embroidered Alumni Logo Patches (sew-on) and car windows stickers, and other T-shirts designs. The surveys will provide us with an idea of which designs you like best and whether you would be willing to purchase any of them if we ordered them. We need this last info to have an idea of how many to order.
Lastly, as always, we are still looking for people. We continue to get new contact info on people and are up to around 50% now. But that still leaves a lot of people we can’t reach. If you know how to reach someone whose info is not listed in our directory
, please send us their info. Thanks!
