Bentley High School 55th Reunion - Class of 1963

 

May 2, 2017

 

We are planning a dinner either at a restaurant or banquet hall.  From the number of respondents we’ll need to secure a large facility.

 

We are looking at tentative dates of September 21st or September 22, 2018.

 

In order to secure a location for the reunion and finalize the details we need an accurate head count.  PLEASE RESPOND IMMEDIATELY.

 

Please let us know how many people plan to attend.  Count spouse, friends and guests etc.

                 

If you are in contact with other Bentley ’63 classmates that I might have missed please contact them as soon as possible.  Give them my email address listed below.

       

Additional weekend activities will be discussed at a later date.

Hello fellow Bulldogs,
 
As most of you know, the Bentley Alumni website that I maintained was closed down last year so we wouldn't have to keep paying about $150 per year.  Many classes have their own websites now.  Our email address will continue, since it is free.
 
The former Alumni Association went out of business about 40 years ago and I became the "Bentley Alumni Liaison" since then.  In those years we had accumulated some funds by selling old Yearbooks and new Alumni Directories.  Now that those funds are no longer needed I have donated all but $100.75 to the LPS Education Foundation.  On April 29, 2016, $1,220 was donated in the name of Bentley Alumni to the Foundation.
 
The Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization chartered by the State of Michigan in 2004.  Its goal is to provide additional financial support to the district for innovative programs and services, so the school system can continue to be a "beacon of excellence" to all those it serves.  Anyone can contribute directly to the Foundation by visiting their website  http://www.lpsfoundation.org/
 
If you are interested in purchasing USED YEARBOOKS for $20 plus $5 postage, please contact me.  I still have ONE copy (or 2) of each of the following years:  1954, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1969=2, 1970=2, 1972, 1981, 1982=2, 1984, and 1985.
 
NEW ALUMNI DIRECTORIES are also available at different prices.  Each edition contains a biographical section with addresses and phones of those graduates who responded, a class year section listing the names of all graduates of that class, and a geographical section listing responders by their city, state and country.  Each edition also contains a few pages of the history of Bentley and Livonia Public Schools.
1998 edition, $10 + $5 postage, the first ever published, edited by George Calder, 11 copies
2002 edition, $20 + $5 postage, very similar to 1998 but biographical info is by individual classes, 11 copies
2006 edition, $30 + $5 postage.  Edited by LPS Education Foundation with new history information, 3 copies
The above three editions are available from me.
 
2016 edition by LPS Education Foundation available in different formats around $100 at Harris Connect Customer Service 800-877-6554
