40 Year Reunion Announcement!

BHBL Reunion - Class of 1978

Recap of our Reunion Weekend  

The second weekend in August 2018, was overcast and drizzly, HOWEVER, the classmates of 1978 didn’t mind because they were overjoyed to reunite with each other and raise the roof partying into the wee hours of the morning, just like the old days! What a great time at The Charlton Tavern Meet & Greet, hosted by our very own Michael Maloney and Sue Quinn Maloney! Thanks for your perfect hospitality and delectable food selection. People wandered from one group to another eager to meet the next classmates. Not recognizing many with their bald heads and extra cushioning, gray hair and glasses, we all conspicuously sought out the name tags with pictures and with a gasp, acknowledged the face in front of us which was gaining familiarity as we peered into their eyes and made the association with the yearbook picture! We embraced and exchanged stories about our travels over the last few years. We raised our glasses and toasted and we smiled for the cameras as the flashes were going off in every corner of the tavern! What a grand get-together! The following evening, for our 40th BHBL Reunion, we all dressed-to-impress, adorned with our formal attire. There were new faces and many from the Meet & Greet the night before! Again, we moved from one group and table to the next and introduced ourselves, pushing our pictured nametags in others’ faces! It was a spectacular event as we mingled, cultivating old friendships and forging new ones! The perceived differences we held onto so tightly in high school, seem to have all melted away and classmates were just delighted to share in the commonality of our togetherness after 40 years! Everybody was well-behaved and fairly subdued, until they had a couple drinks and then the Lupi twins kicked up their heels on the dance floor and showed everyone how to boogie to the disco music! Then, many others loosened up and joined in with stockinged feet and swing and line dancing and it was just fabulous fun! Still others preferred to gather on the Lighthouse Restaurant patio, alongside the Mohawk River, and chatted about old times and new. Mike Maloney, of course, entertained everyone as he smoked his cigar and remarked that he can’t text because his fingers are too fat and the voice recognition feature for texting doesn’t work either, because it can’t understand his raspy language and just types out garble! LOL

Thanks to Cori Schorr Kinns for being my partner-in-crime as we had many late-night hour text conversations about planning, exchanging lists and finding classmates. Thanks to Louise MacCormick, Lynn Rivers and Paula Rowley for their exceptional skills in putting together such a memorable table for our deceased classmates. Thanks to my good friend Emma Mullen who helped with the set-up and raffle tickets and was just a great support all around (1975 Mohonasen graduate). Thanks to Rit Rizzo who coordinated the event, tabled a tasty buffet and who gave us a great price. Thanks for the specialized service from the Lighthouse bartender and waiters-waitresses too. Thanks to DJ Joey & Company who kept the dance tunes spinning. Thanks to all the helpers who contributed their reunion expenses as a donation to help balance the final figures. Thanks to Tom Wagner for organizing a very well-attended and worthwhile tour of our BHBL High School, lead by the new principle. All in all, it was a group effort and I SO appreciate everything that was done to contribute to achieving this exquisite end result.
