Still looking for a few classmates. Check out our web page *****.com. Selling ads for our program book in order to offer scholarships to classmates who would like to attend but due to lost jobs etc, cannot afford it.

If a grade school reunion can sell over $1,000 worth of ads, high school should do much better. Unfortunately it is not. So far we have only sold $50 in ads. Come on Boganites. If you have a special memory, a picture or someone you would like to remember, this is a great way to do it. Also, we would like to support our classmates who own businesses. For further information on buying an ad for the 1973 runion program book, contact Patricia (Walsh) Howe

thanks for your help. I know we can do it!
