for responding to the initial mailing. Our response rate has been
very good. I have received postcards back from over 160 of our classmates
(out of 289) that are interested in attending the reunion! We have
still been unable to locate a number of people. Please check the
Class of 1989 web site at
http://www.bhsbees.com/reunion_1989.htm (this page) to see if you can help locate anyone. If you do know where someone is, please get in touch with them and pass this information along to them or have them send an e-mail to BHS89REUN@aol.com.
We have moved forward and finalized the plans for the reunion weekend. This letter will outline the dates, places, and cost of the reunion weekend.
your calendars for Friday, October 1st and Saturday, October 2nd.
The schedule of events for the weekend are as follows:
Friday October 1, 1999 FOOTBALL GAME AT STINGER STADIUM*
AND/OR HAPPY HOUR(S) AT ‘THE CLEANERS’
*Due to the 1999 football schedule not being finalized until February, we were unable to confirm that a home game will be played on this particular evening. However, if a home game is scheduled, then you can count on finding a section with the graduates from the Class 1989 at Stinger Stadium (and an informal gathering afterwards at ‘The Cleaners’). If a home game is not scheduled, then plan on an informal gathering at ‘The Cleaners’ on Main St. in downtown Lynchburg.
note that tickets to the game and/or drinks and appetizers at the bar are
NOT covered in the reunion cost.
