The Memorial Page is NOT available yet, but sadly I have placed random entries.  I am currently trying to update with pictures, and the obituary.  I have put online a few.  Please also know that I can change the display backgrounds for the entire website.  However, I CAN'T CUSTOMIZE  with the mascot due to the extra costs involved.  I am also  currently working on the 50th Reunion updates to the site.  Any suggestions, please voice mail or email [BBL]. Thanks.

JRBHSCO1967: MEETING

November, 2016

 
HELLO CLASSMATE!

 
The 'MEETING' will now come to order!

 
First of all before the business at hand, we would like

to thank Carol Zeh, for her willingness (again) to join the

Reunion Committee.  Since then, we also have

welcomed Becky Graf Del Propost.  Roger Hoover

remains as our Treasurer. Donations are and will

be GREATLY appreciated. The Committee has room

for additional classmates to become members. We

sadly and wholeheartedly miss Dan McClish, Louie Farris Jr, and

Dave Shriber, our deceased Committee members.

 
OLD BUSINESS:
 
Our apologies to classmates we have not yet

been in contact with by snail mail, phone, or email.

Budget constraints are necessary for postage, paper,

and, online search sites. The Committee has

diligently been searching and calling classmates

from Beverly's LOST list. We have also welcomed

your retirement! Did you update or delete your work

email? Please notify 
Yvonne with yours, or other

classmates' information.


Reunion dates are September 22, 23, 24, 2017.

 
The Reunion location is the Holiday Inn Akron

West-Fairlawn, 4073 Medina Rd, Akron,

Ohio, 44333. Early room reservations are available

at a reduced rate. Mention 'Buchtel Class of

1967'. PHONE: 330-666-4131 or 1-888-HOLIDAY,

or www.holidayinn.com/akron-west .

 
TABLED:
 
Sunday, one activity, Brunch, Picnic, Pool party.

 
NEW BUSINESS:
 
FACE BOOK. We have a Group, and a Page. The

'John R Buchtel Class of 1967' is our location name

for both the page and the group. There are other

locations that reference our class, but they do not

use the "John R". Beverly will try to keep both the

page and group locations updated
.
However, please refer to our website for the

complete package including pictures.

 
MEAL SELECTION.  In the past we have only been

offered the Buffet Dinner option. For our 50th

Celebration, we have a choice. We can choose to

have a Buffet, or your personal selection of a plated

dinner option. We are asking you to make your

choice before December 31, 2016.  We can then

present the totals to the hotel for accurate pricing

for them, and also for our ticket packages. Please  

email your choice ASAP. We will notify final choices

on our website.



After the "MEETING" we will 'distribute' the 'meal

package in its entirety'
.
QUESTION: IS THERE ANY FURTHER BUSINESS?
 
Please notify Yvonne for corrections and/or

additions.

The Meeting is adjourned. 


Meal Selection packages were emailed.

Please notify Yvonne if you need a copy.

MAY 5, 2016 Cinco de Mayo aka May 5th

¿Cómo estás? (Hello, how are you?)

Fellow Classmate, that's your lesson for today. Forty-nine years ago, we had never heard of this holiday celebration. It was when the Corona beer drinkers introduced the party concept that practically sweeps over 95% of the U.S. college campuses today, and co-workers needing excuses to leave early. OK, OK, really it was when Spain relinquished their hold of Mexico/California in the 1800's, but that's just a technicality.

Remember "Get Smart" with Maxwell Smart? "Can you imagine?” McDonalds began selling in 1954 at one location, and has now sold over one hundred billion hamburgers as of 1993. They quit counting! So did Goodyear Tire. Forty-nine years ago, coffee was mainly percolated at home, now there's Starbucks. FYI: Barrister- Lawyer type person. Barista - Someone working in a coffee shop. 
While Miss Sexhauer wanted your face IN a book, Mr. Z is making millions of dollars from 'Facebook. Then there's the WWW/Internet as we know it now, along with cell phones, cable, satellites, and Apples you don't eat. The King of Siam said it best "et cetera, et cetera,” or etc. 

What's the point? Well, the point is that our 50th, yes Fiftieth Class Reunion will be celebrated next year, the weekend of September 22, 23, 24, 2017, at the Holiday Inn on West Market Street. The date and the place was selected by the 'majority' rules. 

Nothing 'trumped up' about it! (Forgive the pun!)

Can you speak text messaging? R U ABL 2 B ON COMIT-E? Are you able to be on [the] committee? Do you have any suggestions? Please call Yvonne at 330-807-XXXX or email to her at her @aol.com address.

'Sad news' notifications are difficult to send. When a death notice is read and sent out, usually it may mean someone was sick perhaps days, weeks, months and sometimes years prior. What spirits could be lifted if some type of a greeting whether a cheer, thinking of you, get well, or even sympathy card had been sent from the class as a whole or from individual classmates? Please keep that in mind for our sick and shut in members, and those that are bereaved. We all like to be thought about and prayed for - no matter what situations in life occur. Please send an address and name. Specify if it can be published for those classmates wanting to send cards, or if only one card from the class as a whole should be sent. Thank you.

Take care. Enjoy the Spring, look forward to Summer. Sunscreen and bug spray are essential for outdoors. 

Sincere regards from your
John R. Buchtel High School Class of 1967 Committee

FINAL SELECTION FOR THE 50TH CLASS REUNION CELEBRATION

Holiday Inn Akron-West

 

The banquet/ballroom has been selected by a majority vote.  The group block rate of rooms is $109.00 + bed tax and local tax per room per night.  We will try to get the cost lowered as we move closer to the date.

 

REMEMBER 

 

Except for the contracted actual costs of the dining facility, each location has various gratuity charges and taxes. Keep in mind that the food prices will roughly increase approximately 10% in 2017.  It is our hope that we make the choices you want because we really want you to attend.

We will contact you about the next phase of Reunion Planning 101.  Plan on joining the Committee and sending donations.

 

Thank you.

OCTOBER, 2015

Good morning everyone,

 

 

Many of you have heard and received emails with information regarding the passing of several of our classmates in the past and this year.   However, many emails were returned as “'non-deliverable.”   The distribution list is updated when I am notified by a classmate when their email has changed.  Face Book reaches a vast majority of the world, but alas - not too many in our BHS Class of 1967.  

 

Regarding our Reunion. Beverly has checked hotels, and corresponded with several hotels' sales managers.  It's narrowed down to these locations:
 Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls,
 Holiday Inn located in Fairlawn,
 Double Tree, and,
 the Hilton, both on West Market Street.
Room rates vary from $100 - $150 per night. Dinners can be plated, buffet, or stations. We'd like to know as soon as ANYONE can, please to respond as to WHERE you want to go. Roughly speaking, we are hoping NOT to go above double the cost of any of the previous years' ticket prices.  We endeavored to remain at $50 per ticket, in 2007, and 2012 which included funding our website hosts.  After our last Reunion, we incurred a few complaints.  It won't happen again,  because we ALL are able to make our choices known prior to 2017.   

 

    (DONATIONS?  GLADLY ACCEPTED AT ANY TIME!)
$$ to:
Roger Hoover/BHS 67
266 Gleason Avenue
Akron, OH
44312

Reunion dates are, September, 22, 23, 24, 2017.  Right now time is of the essence because weddings, etc., are being planned, and we don't want to wait too long to decide. The first 50 people that respond will make the choice. Then, the fun parts can really begin. The Time, Place, When and Where, will all be in place.  Those of you that want to work at making our 50th Reunion a memorable success will be able to make it happen by joining forces to do just that.

 

Thanks a bunch.
Enjoy your extra hour of sleep if it applies November first.

  BOO!!!

 

Have a great day!
