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

Bill's message is below. I'd also like to wish everyone a great holiday season. Pat

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

• Welcome to 2024!


Without receiving your memories, or current activities, from our readers in the 1953 - 1962 class years, we have nothing for the newsletter. Eventually, the newsletter will f-a-a-a-a-de away. Just a fact we cannot change. 😌

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, each has had a different experience while they were there, and each has 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.

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!

- 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 to 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.

Please send all content to be included in the newsletter to Bill Rumble (57) at: BushyTales1@verizon.netsmall envelope
It is a huge help for us when those emailing Pat Owen or Bill Rumble include their Graduation Class Year.

To UNSUBSCRIBE from this newsletter, simply send an email with the Subject line showing your Class Year and the word “Unsubscribe” to: Bill Rumble (57) at BushyTales1@verizon.netsmall envelope or to:  Pat Terpening (58) Owen at nemoamasa@sbcglobal.netsmall envelope
