THE BIGGEST PLUS ABOUT BEING A BHS 1972 CLASSMATE:

  I got to grow up and live in the most wonderful place in the world—Southern California in the USA
  I got to be a part of a class with the best looking, smartest men and women ever assembled at BHS
  I got to go to school in a place that wasn’t North Dakota, Maine, Alabama, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Kansas, Arkansas, Oregon, Louisiana, DC, South Carolina, etc.
  I got to hear and see live some of the greatest music ever written and performed and got to see the evolution of recorded music from vinyl records, reel to reel, 4-track, 8-track, cassettes, CDs, MP3s, downloads, to the cloud.
  I knew that graduation from Bellflower High School would allow me to write my ticket for full happiness thereafter, having a leg up on all other high school graduates across this nation.
  I didn’t have to be in the BHS Class of 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975…

Welcome to the Bellflower High Class Of 1972 web site! We are glad you have "come home" after all these years. We loved seeing so many of you at our 40-year reunion in August 2012. We now look forward to an epic 50-year BHS '72 Class Reunion on August 26-27, 2022!
 

Please explore and enjoy this website dedicated to all of our classmates--those still with us and the many that are no longer with us.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

BHS '72 Class 50-Year Reunion--Aug 26/27, 2022

HERE IT COMES!! 

Our BHS '72 50-Year Reunion will be held over 2 days--Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 in 2022. We will have two official events for all classmates:

** The first event is a casual mingle / get-together on Friday night, August 26, 2022, from 6pm to 11pm at the Spanish-style, two-story Recreation Park clubhouse in Long Beach, CA, at 5001 Deukmejian Drive. There will be hors 'd ouerves and beverages, live music (2 live bands as background music) and lots of warm greetings and fun.

** The second event is a nicer dinner, program, silent auction and dance (with an amazing 5-piece dance band) on Saturday night, August 27, 2022, also from 6pm to 11pm, at The Mayne Events Center in Bellflower, CA, at 16400 Bellflower Blvd., just south of the railroad tracks on Bellflower Blvd. It is a great 2-story banquet and meeting space with an attached Los Angeles County Fire Museum with vintage fire trucks on display. The Mayne Events Center has been the chosen venue of the BHS classes of 1969, 1979 and 1971 for their 50-Year reunions as well. 

We will also have a 3rd optional 9-hole golf event for 25 classmates on Friday afternoon August 26, 2022, starting with some practice swings at 11am, a Noon lunch and tee times set for after the lunch. This is a fun event we first held at our 40-year reunion and is back by popular demand. This event is for those classmates who want to play some golf or those who have always wanted to try golf in the easiest way to ever do so -- a best ball scramble format. You will have a great time whether you golf well or not.

The countdown clock above is now set for August 26, 2022, the start of our 2-day reunion events.

 Some say our 50th will be our last reunion--and it most certainly will be the last of its kind, and it will be epic. The pent up energy we all have to get out and celebrate and reacquaint with each other will be an added excitement for sure. We had/have a most special class and we will have a most special reunion. We hope to see every one of you at our 50-Year Reunion, as you are a huge part of the BHS Class of 1972 and will be warmly welcomed by all in attendance.

Thanks so much on behalf of our big cheeses--Mara, Kerry and Barb.

 

OH WHAT AN EPIC 50-YEAR REUNION WE Will HAVE!
