Next summer marks the 55th anniversary of our graduation. We are planning a grand reunion although we are planning to keep it on the casual side.
Tentative date could be Saturday, July 9, 2022, yet appropriate venues are quickly filling up. This post is just an inquiry to determine how many might attend so that we can reserve the optimal venue.
Please email (if possible in the next couple days) to Tracie McGarity with your interest in attending and the estimated number in your party. Thank you!
Our honorary classmate, Michael Vincent Buscemi Jr. (1948-2021) went home peacefully to the Lord on the last day of August 2021 and was laid to rest this week. Mike’s career had taken him to Alaska where he started and raised his family. After a quarter century, he relocated to Ohio for the last several decades. Let’s please keep Mike and his family in our prayers.
From all your friends in Bishop Watterson Class of 1967, RIP, Brother Mike!
Anyone present at our August late afternoon gathering will report what a great and fun time we all had. Growing each month, this seemed to be our highest turnout yet! Some faces that we haven’t seen in a while were able to make it. It was fun to spend a little time catching up with everyone.
Due to the COVID variant that seems to be determined to cause havoc, we’re not scheduling an event for September. Hopefully October will bring better days and the resumption of our time together!
On a happier note, for our 55th Anniversary Class Reunion, the weekend of July 9, 2022, is the date preferred by those in attendance at our last get-together. Any and all comments welcome!
