Additionally, if you are leaving after Sunday, I'm trying to organize an event for Sunday
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. A BBQ at Miller Park ? Bowling at one of the lanes ? (depending on the heat inside an air conditioned building).
Please send me an email by Wednesday, July 21st. so reservations / details can be worked out.

Send to: Thanks everyone, Dean Berenz


Hello Classmates

I arranged a tour of BHS for our 40th and have been asked to do the same for our 50th. Tim Moore, the BHS Principal has agreed to be our tour guide on Saturday morning, August 7 at 10am. A highlight will be the new "Fine Arts" building which was finished I believe in 2019.

If you are interested, please drop me an e-mail, I would like to have at a minimum 10 classmates for the tour.

I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you for the 50th!

Michael "Mike" Jones


Class, we need event pictures... lots and lots of pictures. There is a page set up - "50-Year Reunion Pics" where you will be able to upload your pictures directly to our website. The instructions are on the webpage. 

It would be great if you identify the peeps in the pics. As most of you have experienced over the last few years, our "facial recognition software" seems to be giving out as time goes on.

Fun and funny are the greatest pics to remember!


Hello Everyone!

Just wanted everyone to know that I published my first book (outside of my dissertation anyway)! The title is "Scarred But Unscathed: Growing in Faith." It's available through Amazon,, and my website at Hope you take a peek!

I'd include a picture of the cover but apparently can't do that here!
