The BHS Class of 1960 Reunion Committee is pleased to announce the "40+1" class reunion, held at Angelica's in Middleton, Massachusetts, on July 28, 2001, was better than we dared hope. Joan Fairbank mentioned she very rarely has seen that many happy adult faces in one place. All of the committee members had some people come up to them and say this was the best reunion they ever attended. The work the committee did was only a portion of the reason. It was more likely a combination of the point we are at in our lives, the fact the class hasn't had a real reunion for 16 years, we had Jim Moses Music for entertainment, people were there that had never attended a reunion before, and, for all we know, the phase of the moon. The Class of 1960 was ready for a reunion!!

That night there was a definite majority vote for a forty-fifth reunion in four years. It will be difficult to top this one, however, but if the enthusiasm of that night continues, we will do it!!

It was difficult to trim down the list of "missing" classmates to notify everyone of the reunion. If we as a class do not stay in closer touch, next time it will be even more difficult to locate everyone, as we are now at the point in our lives where we are

We signed a contract with Jim Moses Music for our Reunion 2001 entertainment. Jim is a full time DJ, singer and entertainer. His card says "You Get Full Time Quality" and "All Functions: Weddings to House Parties." We have seen him working and he is a major talent in his line of work.

Ray Charland, a member of your Reunion Committee, came up with the idea of making name tags from our yearbook photos. He designed them, photocopied the image from a yearbook in the Beverly Public Library, and fabricated them. It was necessary to go to the library for a "clean" copy of the yearbook, because our classmates wrote all over the photos in our own copies, as I'm sure you know. The image is set in heavy laminated plastic, with a safety clip on the back. The reverse side, not shown, contains the individual's yearbook write-up. These became souvenirs for those who bought reunion tickets.

The spouses/guests of class members hand wrote their names on special cards that Ray made up, much like the one for Maureen Darcy on the left. Those handwritten IDs were then placed in a plastic ID case, also with a safety clip on the back. The cards had one of several cartoon characters, in color, on them. The third type of card were those for classmates or former classmates for whom we did not have a photo. Maureen Darcy's ID is one of those.

It is the strangest thing seeing people you haven't seen for 40+ years. If it wasn't for these clever IDs by Ray, some of us wouldn't have recognized some classmates even after they told us who they were. At the reunion we were saying, "Oh, I'd recognize you anywhere," while at the same time surreptitiously eyeing their picture ID, wondering just who the hell is this person? It was especially tough as we can no longer read anything at a distance. Next time the picture and text will be bigger.

Actually, I'm kidding, but there is a grain of truth to that story. It is quite interesting how this stranger in front of you, a person you haven't seen for forty years, sort of morphs into your familiar classmate from so long ago, after you finally realize who they are.

Anyway, many thanks to Ray for providing an important element in the success of our reunion. Kudos, Ray!!

08/08/2001: Many classmates did not specify who the second ticket was for so I list them here as "& guest" because I simply did not know for certain. Please don't be offended if you attended with your spouse and you were not listed as Mr. and Mrs. Let me know and I'll change it.

Many thanks to our generous classmates who gave money to the BHS Class of 1960. Their generosity enabled us to make the "40+1" reunion a great success. There is money left over for a nest egg to be used toward future reunions. The bulk of that will be used toward the 45th reunion coming up in 2005, and perhaps an interim event, too. Some of the money will be used to help keep BHS '60 in closer contact with each other. This will be done through this Website, post cards to those without an email address, and perhaps a newsletter or two. [NOTE: It is very important that you keep us apprised of your current email address - please let us know if it changes.]

As we move toward the 45th reunion in 2005, the biggest help you can provide is keep us informed of mailing and email address changes, so we can stay in touch. Please remind others of this, too, should the occasion arise. Thanks! Perhaps you know where one of our "lost" classmates can be found? See an up-to-date list here:
