These pictures are now working again - 9/4/06

Update!  We had approximately 250 people at the reunion Saturday night!

It was a great success, according to all the feedback we've received so far. Both in person, and by e-mail last night and today. A few of the reunion committee members have told me they also have received a lot of positive feedback. We had quite a few former teachers attend the reunion events. Thanks to everyone who made contact with those teachers and invited them to attend.

I would like to invite anyone who has pictures they would share with us all to please send them to me at and I will share them on this page with everyone. I have a few pictures myself that I will put online sometime soon. I know that several of you told me you'd share your pictures with me, too.

It was great to see so many familiar faces, and to see everyone getting along so well, having a good time. It made all of our planning and work worthwhile to see that. We had some surprises, with several people who had said they would not be able to attend, who did make it after all. A special thanks to Ned Haley & Mike Hill for getting the word out to their classmates.  I hate to mention names, because there are so many who did so much. It was truly a team effort.  As David mentioned at the reunion, Ann Garbee Kostal did a LOT of work, not just the food. Others who worked very hard all year on this were Shirley Green Wright, Gary Bailey, Susan Robertson McDaniel, Wayne McDaniel, Gail Newman Neal, Linda Kitchen Hughes, Sara Jane Maddox Ewers, Wanda Roberts Wright, David McCoy, Larry Snell, Kathy Myers Carson, Sue Johnson Hall, Nancy Gunter Robertson, Dianne Carroll Mendel, Susan Rowland Lewis - and many others. Quite a few others helped decorate Friday and Saturday. If you know another name that should be on this list, please let me know - I will add it - they all deserve a lot of credit for their hard work and dedication. My part of this was not that difficult for me. Doing web pages and managing e-mail lists and messages is much easier - almost fun - compared to the programming I do at work. And seeing how much fun everyone had this weekend made it all worthwhile.

Without all this support, we could not have had such a successful reunion. And because it was so successful, many are already saying we need to do this again in 5 years. Or in 10 years (I think 10 years is too long to wait, myself).

In order to let everyone share a little more about their experience at the reunion, and also to collect suggestions for next time, I am clearing the Reunion Guestbook and changing the format, so we can collect and share these ideas with each other.

If you change your address, or your e-mail address, please let someone know, so next time we do this, we will be able to find you!  There were a lot of people we did not find. The information we had was too old.

Thanks to EVERYONE for your support with the the reunion!  Thanks to those who drive or flew back to Lynchburg to see your old friends. Some of you told me you planned on this for months, or changed your vacation plans in order to be there. Larry Creasy worked back to back 16 hour days in Florida and flew in at 2 PM Saturday I heard. Some people had never been to a reunion - ever!  We were very privileged to have those people there. 
One spouse who was not from Brookville, but married a Brookville Bee, told me that she had so much fun that it made her wish she had gone to Brookville herself. It just confirms what we've all known all along, and what TODAY'S BEES ARE STILL SAYING,  BHS is a great school!
Once a Bee, always a Bee.

Go Bees !
