Dear Alumnus,

It’s time to make plans to attend the Brookville High School Class of 1987 20-year reunion. This event will take place the weekend of August 24-25, 2007. We hope that life has been treating everyone great since we last met. Life has changed in many ways for all of us and we hope that you will join us for our reunion to take the time with each other to have fun catching up. Committee members, noted below, have been working hard to plan a reunion that meets or even exceeds your expectations. This weekend of events will have something for everyone to enjoy. A special thanks is extended to Tonya Bryant Rosser and Karin Kitts German for their hard work in finding everyone.

If you would like to attend the reunion, please complete the accompanying registration materials and mail them along with your payment to the address provided at the bottom of the registration form. Feel free to bring along your spouse or a guest to the Friday and Saturday evening events. If you have children, they are encouraged to join us for Saturday’s family festivities at the park. Saturday Night’s event at the Kirkley Hotel & Conference Center requires a headcount and the cost of the food, ballroom fee and hotel room rates are dependent on the number of attendees, we hope that you will respect our registration deadline of June 1, 2007, so please register early.

If you are unable to join us for the day and evening events on Saturday, we hope to have you join us at the Friday evening event. Note that attendance this night is FREE since it is a “pay your own way” event where we plan to informally convene the Class of 1987. Please let us know if you plan to do so by completing the registration form so that we know to expect you. If you cannot attend at all, or can only attend Friday’s event, completion of “The Latest Buzzz” form is encouraged so that we can include your information. We are also planning to feature a “Then and Now,” slide show on Saturday with photos taken during high school and of you now with your family (a photo with you and your spouse/ significant other, children, pets, etc.). Be sure to review the enclosed details and submit some of your personal photos of our years together in high school—even if you cannot attend the reunion.

Along with these registration materials, you will find a list of alumni that we have been unable to locate. Of the 278 invited classmates, we have been unable to locate 42. Please help the committee and support this reunion by notifying me of information you may have on these missing graduates. You may E-mail this information to me at anne@hovis.cc or ahovis@wileywilson.com or you may include it along with your completed and returned registration materials. The committee’s goal is to extend this invitation to all alumni!

To save on mailing costs, any updates or changes in the reunion events, will be posted on the BHS website. To do so, visit http://www.bhsbees.com   From this website, click Reunion Info and then Class of 1987. There, you will find reunion information and any updates we may have for you. If you have received this packet through postal mail and have an E-mail address, please help us to reduce possible expenditures in the future by making us aware of your E-mail address.

I sincerely hope that you can attend the reunion and look forward to seeing you there. Please, if you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me or another committee member.

Best Regards,

Anne Geissler Hovis
