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 BHS '72 Classmates! 

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 in Summer 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.

 

 "When we're connected to others, we become better people."  - Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Bellflower High School Class of 1972's 50-Year reunion is officially on the rails toward a summer 2022 date for all our classmates. The countdown clock above is just a placeholder (12 August 2022) until the head honchos pick the actual date(s) for the reunion. The class big shots want to get a few more completed surveys from class members before making the final decisions on dates, # events, type of events, music, etc.

 Some say our 50th will be our last reunion--maybe not, but we want it to be an epic event regardless. We are counting on the timing of this reunion to be clear of COVID concerns. Further, the pent up energy we all have to get out and celebrate will be an added benefit for sure. At this point, the pre-reunion survey is now live and can be accessed on the BHS 50-Year Reunion" link to the left on this home page. Have fun with the survey!

 

PS -- As the 50-year reunion survey results are now visible, we still encourage all classmates who haven't filled out the survey to get your thoughts in as well. 

 

 

OH WHAT A NIGHT(s)!

Hello all you wonderful BHS Class of 1972 classmates:

What a couple of nights (plus a day for our golfers) we had. Our 40-Year BHS '72 Reunion is now in the books. The afterglow of feelings and comments by so many suggests that we nailed it! 

It was truly a team effort. There are so many great folks to thank--from all those heroes who planned, prepared and carried out the numerous moving parts required for such an exceptional 2-day, 3-event program, to all of those 100+ good classmates and guests who attended these memorable events and made them so extraordinary. As we "mature" as adults, the connections with each other seem that much sweeter with the passing of time. Of course, there is never enough time to do all the reconnecting we really would want to do. However, as Mayor Koops challenged us to "catch the lightning in a bottle" for our 40-year reunion while we could, there is a feeling of "mission accomplished."

Perhaps our biggest regret was not having all of our classmates there, many of whom are on this website and could not make it for various reasons. You were missed, yet remembered fondly. 

On the fundraising side of things, check out the "Give Back to BHS" link  on the left of this home page for the latest from its chair and classmate Harry Bigelow Cason.

As for the future, a 50-year event will be next. 

Regarding the recapping of our 40-year reunion events, we have put a link on the left side of this website home page called "BHS 72 Reunion Recap." Feel free to click on it and have a fun look around. We need your help. Though we have captured some golf photos and have some Friday and Saturday night event photos, there may be more pictures that you have taken and we want to put them there. There were three events: 1) The BHS Golf Tournament, 2) the Friday Mingle Event, and 3) the Saturday Big Event. So as we continue to chronicle these three events, please send by separate email (eteynon@aol.com) photos you want to share from these three events, especially the Friday night mingle event as we have very few pictures currently. In the meantime, enjoy the "BHS 72 Reunion Recap" as it is a pretty good electronic history of our special time together.

All the best, and, as always, we are operating under the wise and benevolent guidance of the big kahunas, Mara and Kerry.  

Thanks for a very special time, Ed Eynon.
