  ~ ~ ~ 2021 Reunions ~ ~ ~

1940 (81st)
A mini reunion is planned for a mutually agreed upon date in October for Marie Goff and Nell Bosman, the last two members of the 1940 Class who live in/near Kenosha and are "able to get out and about."  It's bittersweet, isn't it?  They will greatly miss chatting with Emil Tenuta, who has been a regular at their annual reunions but is unable to attend this year, as well as Charles Heide, who passed away earlier this year.

CANCELLED:  1966-1980 BHS Choir Reunion
The 50th Anniversary of the Norway trip and choir reunion that was to be held on Sunday, Sept. 26 has been cancelled. Director Roger Tweiten has been advised by his physician that due to the spread of the Covid variant and the fact that attendees will be coming from many different places, some vaccinated, others not, as well as those of us vaccinated being due for the 3rd booster shot and due to his and Verna's age, it would not be a good idea to attend. 

We completely understand and Roger has asked this of his former choir members:  "Two things I would request from each former student.
1)  An update on your life since I last saw you.
2)  What memories stand out as you think back to when you sang for me? And for those that were on the Norway trip...what did it mean for you at that time & what memories stand out now? I will so miss the in-person connections but welcome any facetime, zoom, e-mail or phone. Stay safe! Stay well!”

Thank you Eddie Bedford. Eddie from Bradford Acapella choir and class of '69 has offered a fantastic solution to our canceled choir reunion. He will be setting up a ZOOM call with Roger and Verna and anyone that would like to join in on their phone, laptop or desktop.  When Tweitens get back to us with a date, likely in October, Eddie will send out directions to anyone who would like to join in on the Zoom call with The Tweitens and any other past choir members interested.  Eddie will also send a link and all you have to do is click on it and you will see Roger and Verna and all choir alumni who decide to join us that day. So STAY TUNED !!! YES, it's a choir pun! And Roger Tweiten LOVES puns.
