Class of 1962
40th Class Reunion

Patty and John's Restaurant

July 5, 2001

Hi there…… Remember us?………. BHS Class of "62 and Canners through and through……..

Can you believe we have been out of high school for FORTY years?

The Reunion Committee has been planning for this 40th reunion and also reminiscing about the good ole' days at BHS with the Class of '62. We have all decided that none of us really feel "that old" to have graduated forty years ago.

It would seem like only yesterday EXCEPT for the fact that "they" demolished our school to make way for a more modern school that they built right behind it. If you all remember, we were the first class to graduate from the new auditorium! - Time Flies…..

We are now older and hopefully wiser but we still need that camaraderie with our former classmates to take us back to days of our youth.

Please plan to join us on Saturday, July 13, 2002 at Patty and John's at 1161 Westminster Avenue in Hanover, PA to help us revive the "Spirit of the BHS - Class of '62". We will have numerous drawings instead of awarding prizes for the most of anything. We will also have cash door prizes. Who knows? This evening may not cost you anything. Mark your calendar now……. More information will follow…..

Ken Thomas will be doing a PowerPoint presentation to take us back to "those" days. Please send any old pictures to him to be included. These can be pictures taken at school, on Senior trip, at slumber parties, football games, earlier reunions, even elementary school days, or just clowning around with former classmates. Please put you name on back of the pictures so they may be returned.

You may also want to check out our class website at Our website includes or will include elementary school class pictures, graduation in our caps and gowns and even our full yearbook including sports, clubs and activities. If you don't know how to use a computer, just ask your children or grandchildren. I'm sure they can help. This will be a great way to keep in touch with old friends throughout the years and not just reunion time. When you fill out the enclosed questionnaire, please remember to include email addresses as well as phone numbers.

But, we're also hoping the questionnaires will reveal the names of those individuals who were throwing water balloons from the 10th floor of the Taft Hotel on our Senior Trip. Or maybe we'll find out who put the tacks on Mr. Emanuel's chair in History class. We're also trying to remember who stabbed "Beaky" Ehlman's frog and drained the aquarium. Memories are there but facts are fading.

Although we will be sending postcards out closer to the date of the reunion for confirmation, we wanted to send the information to you so that you can put the date on your calendar. We would like the questionnaires back as soon as possible so that we can start compiling information for you. Please encourage as many classmates and former classmates to attend this special reunion. If you know of someone who had been a member of the BHS Class of '62 at one time but did not remain to graduate with us, please send us his or her name and address so that person can also be included. We do need your help !
