   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.
   "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

Hello, to all Bushy Park graduates, attendees, faculty and family,
Wishing you all a very happy 4th of July 2022!

This month we have a few pieces submitted by and related to those who attended London Central High School after it left Bushy Park in 1962. It is all that I received. Both came as the result of Ron Crowe (64). I met with him before the pandemic. He lives not too far away from me. He told me that he tried for years to get those from Bushey Hall to put together a newsletter like ours, but received no support or interest whatsoever. He receives our newsletter every month. The fact remains, without receiving memories, or current activities, from our readers in the 1953 - 1962 years, we have nothing for the newsletter. Eventually, the newsletter will fade away. Just another fact we cannot change.
Anyone who wishes to see ANY or ALL back issues of “Bushy Tales”, can do so at website, run by Bob Harrold (60). You can also look at and/or leave a message on the “Guestbook" provided there, on the link on the left-side of the homepage. Also available there are all Central High School yearbooks. At the bottom of the home page, you can search the website for individuals by name.
Another month will be 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 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.
- 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 were 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:
It is a huge help for us when those emailing Pat Owen or Bill Rumble include their Graduation Class Year.
