Welcome Class of 1986!
If you can believe it, it is time for our 25-year high school reunion this September!
Our Reunion committee is in the midst of planning a weekend of activities during Homecoming weekend, starting Friday, September 23 and ending Saturday, September 24th. We wanted to give you this opportunity to “save the date” on your calendars to make sure that you can attend.
The tentative schedule of events is as follows:
Friday, September 23rd
7:00-10:00 pm – RSVPs (changed from MIllrose) – casual class gathering with heavy appetizers and cash bar. Price to be determined.
Saturday, September 24th
10:00 a.m.: Homecoming Parade ---Bonnie Campbell Olson is coordinating the truck/flat bed that we will need to decorate with Class of ’86 paraphernalia. We ask you to bring your comfortable walking shoes so that the adults can walk alongside the float/and your kids can ride in the flatbed and throw candy to the crowds.
After Parade: BHS will be hosting a tour of the high school ---see how it’s changed in the past 25 years----free t-shirts will be given away to those who answer questions correctly about the school.
Pre/Post Game Tailgate Party----BHSAA Alumni Tent & Cookout --- at 111 Grille at the Ice House (former Chessie’s Restaurant) --- Come hang out before or after the game with other alumni from our class and from the other classes and bring the kids. Cash food and drinks.
7:00 -11:00 pm – Saturday night party at 111 Grille. Final class gathering. Food and drink prices to be determined.
The reunion committee is looking for a few more people to assist us with planning/coordinating the weekend of activities. If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My phone is 239-216-3050. I live in Naples, Florida so local help would be greatly appreciated. I will be in town June 10-11th and we will be having a committee meeting at that time. Please let me know if you are able to attend.
The current committee is made up of Caryn Rasnick, Cely Escobar, Inderjeet Sidhu, Bonnie Campbell Olson, Sue Eckl Kinney, Rob Wiltgen, and Vicki Gantter Czernik.
In order to keep the nightly costs down, we are looking for anyone who may be able to “donate” to our event for music, decorations, name tags, etc. Please let me know if you have any connections that would be willing to donate to us celebrating 25 years!!!
We will continue to send out updates about the weekend’s activities as we get closer to the event. We will also send out a mailing for RSVP/payment information for each of the night’s activities.
In the meantime, if you are a Facebook participant, I have created a BHS Class of 1986 25 Year Reunion (Barrington, IL) page. Updates regarding the reunion will also be posted to this page. Just type the page name, or just BHS Class, in your “Search” area at the top of your page and you’ll find the link. Please “LIKE” the page and you will get the reunion update postings on your Wall. So far we have 10% of the class connected via this page. Social Networking at its finest .
We hope to see you all in September in Barrington!
