BHS 1959

Welcome to the Belmont High School Class of 1959 web site!

We have found out that we genuinely like each other, and that it is really fun getting together to reminisce about our times together while we were in school, and to get caught up on our current lives! We went through some great times together, a unique time in everyone's life. Our growing up together has made us family, and our gatherings over the last few years have brought many of us closer together than we ever thought possible!

This web site is dedicated to keeping us close between gatherings. Anyone with memories, pictures, stories, or anything else to share, please let me know!

We need your input! There will be a survey attached to the next Newsletter, asking about your interest in class communications and activities. Please complete and return the survey. If you don't get the newsletter, please email me.


 


55th Reunion!

The 55th Reunion is now another great memory! To help you remember, or, if you couldn't make it, to see what you missed, here are some pictures.
Lynne Russell Pillsbury sent in her pictures from the reunion. They are here.

To remember our classmates who have passed on, we updated the Memorial Video that was shown at the 50th Reunion. The Memorial Video is posted on the Memorial Page here.


Belmont High Hockey Star Meets Boston Bruins Hall-of-Famer, the best hockey player of all time. If you don't recognize them, it's our own goalie, David "Moon" Mullin and our all-time favorite Bruin, Bobby Orr. This meeting occurred over the Thanksgiving weekend in Stuart, FL, where Dave stayed at Orr's condo.

Human rights activist honored at Cape event

Dorothy Stoneman was named Woman of the Year by WE CAN, a nonprofit organization helping to empower women to change their lives. The seventh annual conference and awards ceremony was held at the Wychmere Harbor Club in Harwich Port on Thursday, June 2. The Cape Cod Times had a nice article on Dot and a few of the great things she has done to make a difference in our world. Thanks to Martha Parks and Paul Larkin for letting me know about this fine tribute to a wonderful person! And we knew her first!

Here is a link to the article in the Cape Cod Times.


Another great Mini-reunion weekend!

The Sixth annual Mini-Reunion/Spring party happened May 20-22, and it was another fine time! We had (I think) 69 total that attended at least one of the events. We had a new hotel this year, the Marriott in Burlington, and I think it worked out very well. We started with an informal gathering at the FitzWilliam Pub at the hotel late Friday afternoon going into the evening. Saturday morning something new was added, as we met at the Chenery School at 10 AM for a talk by Stretch reflecting on our time at BHS and the years after graduation. The talk was fascinating, and there was time both before and after for visiting, eating donuts, swilling coffee, and general catching up. This also allowed some ad hoc groups to form for lunch, sightseeing, etc. before the Big Party at 4. Once again Dotty and John opened their house Saturday evening, and once again I was amazed at the fun, fellowship, and good time everyone seemed to have! Coach Stone dropped in for a while which was a special treat. Sunday morning we finished up with brunch at the hotel.

The first pictures from Saturday morning, the Party, and the brunch are here.

Slide show from Lynne Pillsbury here.

50th Reunion an Absolute Blast!


This is the group photo taken by the official photographers. They did a great job with a somewhat unruly crowd (us)! They did a CD with a lot of great pictures, and the CDs are available from them. Jody Gagnon, PricePerfect Photos, 774-678-0448 priceperfect@comcast.net. Jody has given us permission to post a slide show of the pictures.

Our 50th Reunion was an absolute blast! We had 134 classmates, and a total of 203 attendees. What a great turnout! This was really a great time, and I think everyone was sorry to see it end. But it won't really end, because we are more in touch with each other than ever, and that will continue with phone calls, emails, and our two web sites!

The Slide Show of the pictures taken by PricePerfect Photos, as well as all the pictures that Classmates have sent me, have all been posted. The links to all the picture galleries for the BHS 59 50th Reunion are on the Reunion50 page. Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures!

There will be a lot of new pictures of classmates who will be added to the Then and Now. If you aren't on there and couldn't make the reunion, how about sending me a picture or two? If you don't like your current picture, send me a new one and I'll replace it.

Elementary School Pictures

We didn't just meet when we got to High School! We thought it would be fun to look at some pictures from Elementary School. The Chenery pictures are from Bill Callahan. Natalie Pascoe, Anne Shea Oliveri, and Bob Hughes supplied the Winn Brook Pictures. Sue also scanned our Junior High Picture. We also have St. Joseph 1955 from Bob Wicks, and Kendall from Barbara Johnson and Carol Magrath Morse. Burbank 1953 from Helen O'Toole!

There is a new Winn Brook page with several new pictures, and an attempt to identify everyone. Just added, Payson Park from Dick Sawyer and Jean Zimmerman!

We're looking for more elementary school pictures!
