Organizing a reunion and getting the word out to as many classmates as possible takes a great team effort. Be part of that team by keeping us updated on any changes to your directory data. You may contact us through the website, or reach out to a Reunion Committee member via telephone if email is not something you typically do (leave a voicemail if you don't get through to a human being -- we may not always answer calls from phone numbers we don't recognize).
When we checked in on bounced emails for our Class of '73 website in early February 2018, we found there were 44 classmates who had apparently changed their email address in the last year or so and not updated their profile. Update May 1, 2018: After doing some "detective work" on those bouncing emails today, we discovered 15 of those 44 email addresses were entered in profiles when we first uploaded our classmate list to the website, that those 15 classmates had never activated their profiles by establishing a password. We’ve removed those email addresses and deleted those classmates from the Oh No - Bounced Emails! page.
Support the Bradford High School Alumni Association
We hope you'll consider supporting the Kenosha Bradford High School Alumni Association (KBHSAA) by becoming a member. Please visit the Alumni Association's official website for more information on its mission to provide annual scholarships to deserving seniors and recognition of Distinguished Alumni for their achievements. Speaking of scholarships... KBHSAA will host its annual DAA Banquet & Silent Auction (benefiting the Scholarship Fund) on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at Kenosha Country Club. You'll want to keep an eye on KBHSAA website's Sneak Peek: Silent Auction for updates on items going up for bid... might be fun to gather a group of friends and attend this event. Or, if a summer night of baseball is more to your liking, plan to attend Bradford Alumni Night with the Kenosha Kingfish on Monday, August 6... 60 minutes of "tailgating bliss" under the big tent from 6-7PM, followed by 9 innings of family-friendly fun!
The KBHSAA has honored two of our classmates as DAA recipients: Michael Martino in 2001 and Peter Barca in 2005. Next time you have occasion to visit BHS -- perhaps to take in a grandchild's concert or performance in a play (yikes... that means we're really getting old!) -- take a few minutes to check out the plaques on display in the hallway outside the Auditorium. At our reunion in September, let's brainstorm nominating deserving member(s) of the Class of '73 for DAA consideration in 2019.
Last and Probably Most Important: Keeping Your Information Private
Is your contact information (i.e., address and phone number) secure on our website? This information is not visible to anyone except yourself and our website administrator. Your email address cannot be made viewable through your Edit Profile page, but others may send you an email through the contact box at the bottom of your page. (However, if you send a message to a '73 Classmate through their Profile, they will see your email address so that they can respond.)
When a fellow Classmate clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to include in the details you post under your profile.
