WHERE ARE THEY NOW


Battle Creek Central High School
Class of 1965

Come Explore with Us... 

Here's an overview of how to use the BCCHS Class of 65 website.

Home Page is the webpage you are reading now. From any other page on this website, you can immediately jump to the Home Page by clicking on the BCCHS logo in the upper right corner.

Announcements appear after this overview. They will come and go and will usually contain information of a timely nature. You may browse expired announcements using the "What's New" feature.

What's New allows you to browse all the changes made to any aspect of the website including profile changes, announcements, new pictures or videos, new messages in the message center, etc.

Contact Us is useful to tell the website administrators about problems, questions you have, changes you would like to see made, password resets, etc.

Paean 1965 & 1964 displays the entire two yearbooks online. You can bookmark pages, zoom in on important pictures, print pages, etc.

First Time Visitors is what you'll want to read if you are new to the website and want to join. If you are a classmate of the 1965 Battle Creek Central class, please be sure to join.

Class Connection is the BEST way for Facebook users to link their Facebook account directly to the BCCHS65 website. Check it out.

Do you want more items explained right here? Be sure to use the Contact Us feature.

Who are your classmates? 
In the summer 2017, we added approximately 100 names as classmates on this website. None were graduates of BCCHS in 1965 who we forgot to include. They were BCCHS students who you may have had in class and might have been your good friends many years ago but who, for some reason, didn’t graduate with us. Rather than exclude them from some possible connections with their old friends, we added them as classmates for you to connect with. If there’s a classmate who was in the same grade as you, whether it was elementary, junior high or high school, who you would like added to our website, let us know via the Contact Us feature.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Celebration of Life Service for Frederick Gibby

Fred's wife, Loretta, and his daughter, Nicole, would like everyone to know that his Celebration of Life Service will be as follows:

Tuesday, July 6, 2021
Pilgrim Congregational United Church of Christ 
1200 W. Glenlord Rd.
St. Joseph, MI

Visitation with family: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Those who wish to may wear bright, joyful colors in remembrance of the joy Fred brought to our lives. 

For the consideration of everyone attending, masks are required.

For those uncomfortable with wearing masks, or unable to attend in person, the service will be streamed online. Streaming information will be announced here at a later date.

Also, look for a notice in the Battle Creek Enquirer and Battle Creek Shopper soon.

 

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT  upcoming post-COVID reunion

As many of you are aware, many months ago plans were made to hold our 55th Reunion in August, 2020. Then along came COVID, postponement of many normal events, adapting to a new, safe environment, etc. Our 55th Reunion was cancelled, but no new date was scheduled because of so much uncertainty. Now that many facets of normal life are returning and more than 45% of American adults are fully vaccinated, it seems like it's time to pursue a post-COVID reunion.

Here is the current proposal. We are working with a downtown event venue, Record Box Loft, and there are limited dates available because so many cancelled events are now being rescheduled. We will try for a Friday night to allow for those who want to get together with family and friends for at least a long weekend. Saturday would be second choice; Sunday, third. It will probably be in September because earlier dates are completely booked. Even September is nearly unavailable.

 

DETAILS:

There will be no charge to attend. A cash bar is available.

Food is complementary;  heavy hors d'oeuvres.

This will be a late afternoon/evening event.

We'd like to invite the BCCHS classes of 1963 and 1964.

 

Perhaps, if there is very little interest in attending a social event this summer/fall, there will be more interest in attending a summer 2022 event.

Please logon to the website and complete the survey. All answers are important to us.

If you are interested in helping with this reunion, please contact us using the "Contact Us" link along the left side of this page or complete answer 3 in the survey.

There is a link at the TOP left to click to begin the survey. It is called "55th Reunion Survey."

UPDATED ITEM FOLLOWS.

ALL BCCHS lunches are...

CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the corona virus.

Stay tuned for the next lunch and any other scheduled events.  

PAST BCCHS lunches and picnics...

Our Class of '65 lunches normally are on the third Wednesday of most months. Typically they are at Clara’s on the River at 11:30 a.m. or noon. Clara’s has good food and a convenient location with lots of parking. Clara’s will set aside a space for us in the restaurant where we can eat and visit for a few hours.

For several months, we've had monthly get-togethers for classmates in Battle Creek. Many classmates have enjoyed the company of each other and great food. If you live close to BC or will be visiting on the dates of the lunches, please join us! It's fun to spend some time with each other for lunch and catch up with what is going on.

Here are the past lunches in 2020:

January 15, 2020 at NOON at Clara's on the River. A small group attended.

February 19, 2020 at NOON at Clara's on the River. A small group came and celebrated the 114th anniversary of the founding of the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, which is now Kellogg's. It's was GRRRRREAT.
