IT'S ON, CLASSMATES !!!!!
SEPTEMBER 23RD THRU THE 25TH, 2016
We are going to stage another memorable weekend, and we want all of you to attend this weekend full of events and all at the reasonable price of $105.00 per person. This time we have shifted the venue back to the totally remodeled Somerset Inn, site of our 25th and our 30th reunions.
We will start with a 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM get re-acquainted evening at The Heathers clubhouse which is located on Square Lake Road just east of Opdyke Road. It is a wonderful condo complex with a golf course and club house. We will be offering hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and all drinks will be your responsibility.
Saturday, we will all board buses between 11:00 AM and Noon and we will be taken on a 2 hour tour of the fabulous resurgence of Detroit. The tour will be moderated by folks who represent the City as well as the Tour. I am sure all of us remember what the City looked like when we were at Seaholm as well as what it became. You will be astonished at the rebirth and the restoration that has already taken place. This tour will be part of the package.
Finally, the Reunion itself will commence at 5:30 PM with cocktails and followed by a sit down dinner at 7:00 PM. Ralph Costa, Jr will be our DJ again, and we all hope that you will be able to dance at least one dance after the floor show is over. That is, if you can get up!! LOL
I will expand on each of the events as we get closer to the big weekend, but I wanted to let you know now as you may want to book your room at the Somerset Inn. (248-643-7800). Just say you are with the Seaholm 1961 55th reunion and choose your room from 3 different price points.
For your information, we have had over 170 of us commit to the reunion which will mean nearly 270 in attendance including spouses. So, it will be another great gathering with a lot of fun and laughter.
And to end this invitation, don't forget to use our web site at Seaholm61.org and update your information. I will be sending out the updated roster within the next 30-60 days. Additionally, I would like for each of you to write a short biography of your life since we graduated. Not a long one, but a general synopsis of what you have experienced, achieved, etc.
See you at the 55th,
Your Reunion Committee
It's all about enthuasium and spirit! The Birmingham Seaholm High School Class of '61 has held the 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, and 50th reunions. Now we are planning our 55th — another fabulous reunion Friday, September 23rd through the 25th, 2016 at
This website is loaded with goodies, the most important of which is our ability to share life's experiences via pictures and comments. Scroll through the 517 plus classmates with email addresses and enjoy memories, reacquaintances, and if you are a BSHS 61'er, use the login to update us on your situation, including a recent picture.
New PIPER: Online and Ongoing
We had a wonderful time at the 50th Reunion — so many good friends to see again, so many memories to revisit. And now, with five years gone by, and with only a few months till our next reunion, we want to keep that spirit alive by making this website into an updated version of The Piper, a place to meet online for news, entertainment and conversation.
To make that happen, what we need most of all is for everyone to help out.
In Memoriam Pages
The In Memoriam section is one of the most visited parts of the site, and in order to make it easier to navigate, we have divided the list of departed classmates into two pages:
