BHS Class of 1965
Dear graduates of the Berea High School Class of 1965,
Wednesday, June 10th, 2020 marks the 55th year since we graduated from Berea High School. Over the winter, there were discussions regarding a get-together to celebrate this milestone and to also take a tour of the High School before they tear it down.
The restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic stopped that planning.
HOWEVER, there is no reason why we cannot have a Zoom reunion.
Therefore, on Wednesday, June 10th, 2020, starting at 3:00 PM Eastern Time, and again on Saturday, June 13th, 2020 starting at 7:00 PM Eastern Time, we will have a reunion over Zoom. Please come to one or both of these gatherings of our classmates to celebrate.
Please contact Tom Nosek by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let him know which day(s) you would like to participate. Tom will then send you the Zoom ID that we will use for the BHS Class of 1965 Reunion 2020. An Agenda for the reunion is found below. After we share a couple of videos, we’ll open the microphone to those who would like to share with the whole group where they are living now and possibly one favorite high school memory. If you would like to speak to the whole group, let Tom know in your e-mail so he can call on you.
Zoom is a free video-conferencing application that you can use on your computer, smart phone, or tablet. If you do not already have a Zoom account, go to the following web site to open a free account (they will sell you an enhanced account but you do not need one!) and follow the directions:
Five to ten minutes before 3:00 PM Eastern Time on the 10th and 7:00 PM Eastern Time on the 13th, go to the Zoom Sign In web site (https://zoom.us/signin) and log into your account and enter the Zoom ID that Tom will have sent you.
We are using an old mailing list so if you have new addresses for any of our classmates, would you please let Tom know and also go ahead and share this e-mail with them.
The tentative Agenda for Reunion 2020 is:
- Champagne (or any other beverage that you would like to bring to the party) Toast to the Class of 1965
- Viewing through Share Screen on Zoom of a YouTube video of the OLD BHS
Viewing through Share Screen on Zoom of a YouTube video of the NEW BMHS
- For those who want to talk to the entire group, there will be a one-minute sharing of where you are living now and one favorite high school memory. Be sure to let Tom know that you would like to do this so that he can call on you.
- Sing the BHS Alma Mater
- Open everyone’s microphone and we’ll party until the wee hours of the morning
Before the reunion starts, we can all have our microphones open and say hello to everyone. Once the program starts, we will mute everyone’s microphone and only open it for those who are conducting the program. We will call on each person in turn who would like to share something with the group.
This is going to be a different reunion BUT this is going to be fun!!!
