Barrington High School Class of 1987
October 7, 2017
Fellow Class of 87s!
YES, you read that right, it’s been 30 years since we graduated high school, and 10 years since our 20th (math). Time for a reunion.
Just like that overnight party we threw on the front lawn of our Senior Week, we’ve got our act together. We’ve got a date (Oct 7th, 2017 – BHS Homecoming), venues, hotel rooms blocked if you need one, and an awesome committee throwing the weekend together. Details are below.
For now, the ask of YOU is just three things!
- MARK YOUR CALENDARS. Block that date from other things, line up babysitting, and plan on coming. This is going to be casual, fun, and inexpensive. The focus is squarely on YOU and re-connecting with each other and with our hometown. More details will be provided as the time approaches (but you can reserve a hotel room now, see below).
- UPDATE YOUR CONTACT INFO with the Barrington High School Alumni Association. It only takes two minutes to fill it out, and that’s our ONLY contact database so super important.
- JOIN OUR CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE (search for “BHS Barrington (Illinois) High School Class of 1987”). Not on Facebook yet? It’s time.
Please help get the word out. Reach out to the rest of your high school squad that you’ve kept in touch with, and come as a crew. Forward this email and the links below. Or just come on your own – we’ll have plenty of name tags so don’t worry about knowing people!
Here are the details.
- 30th Reunion Event: Sat October 7, 2017, 6:30pm.
- Location: Barrington Hills Country Club
- Theme: CASUAL, Bronco Barn Dance (flannels and jeans encouraged, country music not – we’ll go with 80/90s era stuff). This is SHOW UP and reconnect. Not formal!

Even if you live in the Chicago area, consider staying here Saturday night. You can reserve it now and cancel up to 24 hours before, so there’s no cost – why not just do it?

SAVE THE DATE NOW & LET'S GET TO OUR 200 PERSON ATTENDANCE AT THE 10 & 20 YEAR GIGS. As many of us know, life is precious, it is short, health is fleeting, and it's awesome to reconnect with friends from your past when you are given the chance - so be there!
