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!

Facebook had an Unofficial Bogan Reunion page that no longer exists. It contained a yearly, "All Years Reunion" gathering at Groucho's. Not sure if Groucho's was sold since the 2010 reunion gathering.

Will there be such a reunion for April 2011? It was usually held on the last Saturday in April. Where will it be this year?
Anybody with info. please respond.
