BHS Class of 1965
Dear graduates of the Berea High School Class of 1965,
Friday, June 10th, 2022 marks the 57th year since we graduated from Berea High School.
The last two years we held a virtual reunion over Zoom that went very well.
Therefore, on Friday, June 10th, 2022, starting at 3:00 PM Eastern Time, we will have our third annual reunion over Zoom. Zoom meetings aren’t as good as in person reunions BUT they are easy to attend – just click the link Tom will send you. Zoom is a free application available for all makes of computers, tablets, and smart phones. Clicking on the link that Tom will provide will allow you to download the application if you have not already done so.
Please contact Tom Nosek by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let him know that you would like to participate. Tom will then send you the Zoom ID link that we will use for the BHS Class of 1965 Reunion 2022. After we take a tour of the new Berea/Midpark High School and share a couple of pictures, we’ll open the microphone to those who would like to share with the whole group. Sharing may include where you are now living, what you enjoy doing in retirement (We’re assuming we are all retired now!!!!), and possibly one favorite high school memory. If you would like to share with the whole group, let Tom know in your e-mail and he will call on you in turn.
Five to ten minutes before 3:00 PM Eastern Time on the 10th, click on the Zoom link that Tom will send you and you should be directly linked to our reunion.
If you have new e-mail addresses for any of our classmates that we may not have, would you please let Tom know and also go ahead and share this e-mail with them.
Before the reunion starts, we can all have our microphones open and say hello to everyone. Once the short program starts, we will mute everyone’s microphone and only open it for those who are speaking. We will call on each person in turn who would like to share something with the group. After that, we will open the microphone so that we can have a group chat until we all fall asleep.
The reunion organizers,
Tom and Corky (Wilchek) Nosek (email@example.com)
Rick and Diane (Doutt) Langner (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I would like to thank Gerry Danzey for letting me know that George Behrend passed away on March 3, 2022. George and his wife (Donna Duresky Behrend) were living in the Villages, FL.
Please note that the time of George's memorial service has been changed to ONE O'CLOCK PM on June 18, 2022. Due to limited parking, we request that those planning to attend try to carpool. This is a Celebration - please wear your tie died apparel or your brightest colors - George would love that!

I hope you like the new layout. I wanted to let you know, the "Log Out" selection is in the drop down menu, click on the little "head and shoulder" in the upper right hand corner. Let me know if you have any questions or comments!
Karen Sauke is asking our help to try to identify a student who went to Loomis School (pictures link here). As she recalls, his name was Joel and lived at the Berea Children’s Home. He and a companion were skating on ice in the Berea Metro park and his friend slipped under the ice. Joel attempted to rescue him and drowned instead.
Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas? We all love a good mystery!
