   Thanks to each of you who have taken the time to submit photos and articles for the newsletter. Please keep them coming! I can only use what I receive from you. Those of you with an eye for detail will notice that the first 2017 issue was Issue #1 of Volume #17. Gary ran the Issue and Volume numbers from the very first issue, which was March 2001. Each month I was going crazy ensuring that I had the correct Volume and Issue numbers. Now they will correspond with the year and month of the year. Some editor types will think this is heresy. I think it is practical.
   I am sending ONLY issues of "Bushy Tales" newsletters in .PDF format now.
   Anyone who wishes to see any/all back issues of "Bushy Tales" can do so at the London Central High School, RAF Bushy Park web site, here: maintained by Bob Harrold (60). You can also look at and/or leave a message on the Guestbook provided, on the link on the left side of the homepage.
   "In addition to your Class Year, please add your maiden name in emails and messages, if that is applicable. We'd love to tell you that remember all of you by your married names, but unfortunately we don't." - Thanks. Pat

Below is Bill's message. Hope all is well with everyone. Take care. Pat

Hello, to all Bushy Park graduates, attendees, faculty and family,


Another month keeps rolling around, so: 
 - Any photos you have and would like to share, send them along, too. You can just take a picture of your old photo and email it to me using your smart phone/tablet. No computer skills required. No scanning necessary.
- Any written narrative you wish to send us can be easily corrected for grammar, punctuation, spelling, formatting, etc. No one else will ever know. What you see in the newsletter will be the wonderful story YOU want to tell.  Pat Owen is outstanding at sorting these things out.
- Any thoughts you have about your time in England and Bushy Park, no matter how brief, send them along. Also, descriptions of what you have done since leaving Bushy Park would also be interesting to others!  

We all have lived through an amazing period in our country’s history. And we are still doing so!  Each person who attended Bushy Park traveled a different path to get there, had a different experience while they are there, and have had a different path through life since leaving there. Take the plunge and give us a bit of your life, or all of it. No one will be judging you. Each of us has a unique story. It may seem bland and uninteresting to you, but I am certain that others will think differently.

Please send all content to be included in the newsletter to Bill Rumble (57) at:
