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
email@example.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.
