“School days…School days…Dear old golden rule days…”

Dear Classmates:

It has been 50 years (hard to believe) since our graduation.  How would you like to get together and reminisce? How about making some new memories? We are setting the stage for just such an event.

We are embracing technology to economically reach out to as many people as we can by posting and emailing reunion info and forms. Here is how you can get the latest info, ask questions and contact committee members:

            Class Facebook Page: Bearcats Seventyone

            BCC Class Reunion Site:  www.bearcats71.freeservers.com

            Classmates.com - Reunion Contact Cheryl (Clark) Fugate

            Email Address: bccclassof1971@yahoo.com

            By Phone:  See numbers below

We are also publicizing our reunion in the Battle Creek area. If you have a current email address, mailing address, phone number or any other information about classmates that no longer live in the Battle Creek area, please email their contact information to us or contact a Reunion Committee Member. Feel free to send us an email message to ask any questions regarding the reunion that you might have. After 50 years, it is very difficult to find current contact for classmates, especially those who have never attended a reunion.
