Sherman E. Burroughs High School


After much careful deliberation, the  Executive Reunion Committee has made the decision not to hold our special event in October, just 8 ½ weeks away.  We do already have a new date to look forward to with anticipation!  Getting together as many of our old friends as possible to mark now more than a half century since high school graduation is very important, but we feel a great responsibility for keeping everyone safe and healthy as well as trying to ensure the best possible time, full of fun and comradery.  

The tough decision to postpone was made in light of the rising COVID 19 cases fueled by the even more potent Delta variant and the associated precautions and restrictions currently in place for large gatherings.  It’s hard to stymie the disappointment but hope the setting of a new date already will help stoke the embers of excitement and enthusiasm!  April was the second most popular choice specified in our recent survey.  We think the “extra time” will lend to planning an even better occasion in all aspects.

For now, you all are being given the assignment of staying healthy and happy.  And of course if you would like to help with our Gold 50++ “Spring Fling” in any other way – just let us know! (posted Aug 18th)

Let's do this!

Those of you fortunate to attend the 45th reunion and/or the 2020 "Bring It On Home" event in Ridgecrest know that the class of 70 band boys still know how to rock with phenomenal talent.  Great news! They are planning to showcase their musical prowess and passion again at our April 2022 Bold Gold event. Thank you and many blessings to Steve Roberts, Paul Hupka and Gene Warren for getting the ball rolling then rolling with the punches!  Keep practicing heart
