Have just received notice from the Panama Canal Society that 494 of the 700 rooms at the Marriot have been booked. If you have not yet joined the Society & made your room reservation DO IT NOW!!!!!!The overflow hotel is the Hyatt which is NOT a convenient walk for those in high heels or who have had more than 3 Panamas.
Hey...there seems to be some confusion with classmates that were notified of the class reunion via email. All the reunion forms and
regestration forms that you need are on the main page of this web site! Take advantage of this easy method of downloading this information. If you are having problems retrieving this information please let Bill Mc know. We want to see as many of you there. We have heard from so many classmates that have NEVER attended a reunion before....we are going to have a great time!
BILL, DO ME A SMALL FAVOR...PLEASE E-MAIL TWO OLD FRIENDS. LET THEM KNOW WHAT
THEY NEED TO DO TO ATTEND OUR REUNION.

Home page was great, like to see more photos, maybe I can recognize some old girlfriends 30 yr's later.
Great home page! I wish all of the class would send in their updated personal info. Without it, you are lost to others. In July of 2000, there will also be a reunion of all who ever attended St. Marys School in Balboa. Information about this is available from Kathleen Welch at firstname.lastname@example.org and it will include faculty.
Belated Happy New Year, Bill. Hope that this finds all well. Have been back in Puerto Rico since early January after spending the holidays in Panama and watching the turnover ceremony on 31 December. Quite an experience. My husband is still there ... working fiscal closeout for the US Government. Was back there for the long weekend last week ... many changes already in motion. The most startling, for me, was the devastation of the wonderful stand of banyan trees along Gaillard Highway outside of Albrook. Apparently the new railroad will go through there. Was a real heartbreak to see all those wonderful trees destroyed. Also learned that the old housing office adjacent to the Balboa Train Station will be taken down and the soccer field by the Fastlich ball fields will be cemented over to be used as a container lot. Fate of the train station is uncertain. Albrook is a competition of who can remodel the most lavishly and houses in Fort Clayton are now on the market. The rock monument at the Administration Building has been moved to make way for a new flagpole ... placed down by the Goethals Memorial as I understand it. Apparently a bit of a controversy over who will get Balboa High School ... the Instituto Nacional or the Panama Canal Authority ... A lot definitely has happened in a short time ... wonder what it will look like the next time I go. But, it is still home and it was great to be there. Puerto Rico is not bad but a lot of challenges for those who have moved here from Panama as well.
Looking forward to the reunion and catching up with everyone.
Sending best wishes.
P.S. Please note new mailing address.
BHS '70 Home Page is great - I frequently check it out and run across names of classmates I have fond memories of. Looking forward to seeing them at the upcoming reunion. My new email address is email@example.com
