Here is Dicken's note:
Just wanted to give you a quick update. The we've been continuing to
send out cards and e-mails to alumni. I've been concentrating my efforts on
contacting the classes between 1968 and 1975, but we're telling everyone who
asks that all alumni are invited. I recently met with Vicki Harrison (Class
of '68), and she's jumped in to help. People are generally responding well;
interest is high. We're getting closer to the big event, so it's time to
press everyone we can find to contact THEIR old friends and help spread the
I should also stress the need to book reservations as soon as possible
for those who will be lodging in our local hotels. I'm finding that the
better places are already filling up. The Class of '86 is celebrating
their 20th, and they've already pretty much booked up the Northwoods Resort.
On a private note, it has been an unhappy month for the Eversons, and I had
to focus on family matters. I lost quite a bit of time for working on
Homecoming matters, and had to cancel a committee meeting, which set us back

UPDATE ON THE SPRING SPORTS:
Girls Varsity Softball:
The girls softball team lost their CIF playoff game
to RIM and now look forward to the alumni game on June 3, at the High
School. It was an emotional ending for the girls as it was Mike and Delores
Cliftons last softball game as coaches. They will be retiring at the end of
the school year in June.
Boys Varsity Baseball:
After a come from behind home victory last week the
Boys Baseball team lost in the second round of CIF play off. Great season
for the Bears.
On May 26, Chad Hall won the C.I.F. 1600 meters at Cerritos College. It was
an exciting race with Chad seeded fourth in the race. Michael Coe of
Cabrillo Lompoc started out fast with Chad on his heels. Chad ran the final
lap in 58 seconds and won with a time of 4:10 but Chad felt he could have
ran faster. What a remarkable young man and his coach Mickey Hall was
really a proud father. Now on the state track meet.

During the spring the After School Program sponsored by the SGM/BBHS
Educational Foundation presents their various string instrument concerts.
Wednesday evening I attended the guitar concert taught by Tara Chapman. We
had about 22 students perform before about 50 parents and grand parents.
Shellie Black did a great job of organizing the event. Thanks to Debra
Sarkisian for her many hours of volunteering to organize and put on these
after school programs. Thank you Debra.
