Hi Martine,

My daughter, grandson and father will be there with me.  I just posted the payment for both the dinner Friday night and the picnic on Saturday.  We'll be staying with my father for most of the trip but will stay at the hotel Friday night in case Megan has to take Ashton to the room.  We will be there for drinks at the hotel bar on Thursday night.  My father loves the oysters there!

I can't wait to see everyone!  It will be fun!  I hope a lot of people can join us at the hotel bar on Thursday night!  Spread the word!

See you soon!

Even though I can't attend, I am happy to donate to the class gift of trees and bench. I remember how hot it got there and some shade is a great idea as a class gift!  I'm sure everyone will have a great time!

August 11, 2022:   Hello All Class of '72ers:  

For the 50th reunion, I will be flying in to Tucson from Raleigh, North Carolina.  Are there any North Carolina Reunion attendees that will be at the TUS airport on Thursday, September 29, 2022 heading to Sierra Vista? I will have a rental car and would be glad to share my ride.  

Looking forward to this visit !

Fello classmates.  I can only say wow.  What a wonderful time I had.  I still can not stop smiling.

Suzanne Levinson

I am still smiling, too, and wiping away a few tears (of laughter and sadness) after watching the videos of our time together. Thank you to Layne for the videos, to all of you for the photos, which should keep us in these moments for a few years. And to everyone who made this happen, huge gratitude. Hope to see you all again.

I was unable to attend the reunion, but would like to come to the next event in May.  Is it called "Buena Friends?" Could someone post the details here?  I am unable to find them.

Huge thank you to all of you that worked tirelessly to make this a most memorable was over-the-top amazing.  I'm so grateful for the friendships, the  laughter, conversations and so much love. I feel fortunate and blessed that we were able to gather Sunday morning for a beautiful memorial service for our missing classmates. Thank you, Emory, for leading this with such grace and kindness. Layne, Suzanne, Martine Mary Beth, and so many other volunteers...thank you for a very special and cherished time together. Just...perfect!

On behalf of my sister, Marla Smith BHS class of 1972 put on a class act 50th reunion! I love the talk that Emory Davis gave "date of birth, date of death" vs. "date of birth to date of transition ". Suzanne Levinson, your memory of Marla made me laugh. 

While Marla wasn't there physically, she was there in spirit. I am blessed to have had her as my sister. Again, many thanks for the dedication and photos. Our reunion will be in 2 years for Class of 1974, time has flown since high school days.

This 50th reunion was phenomenal - I knew it would be.  So many people worked so hard to make it great.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  Loved your drone, Layne!!

I get so emotional at these reunions because I’m so attached to our Buena class of 1972.  It was great reconnecting with classmates and friends and now we can visit those who live close to Tucson.
