BYHf Class of 1967 50th Anniversary Reunion

We held our 50th Anniversary Reunion on Friday, June 30, 2017 at the good old B.Y. High building in Room 309 at 6 p.m.

We served a dinner catered by Magleby’s.

It was wonderful to see everyone!

Joel Murphy coordinated all of our reunion efforts. Thanks Joel.

Friday, those who were interested went to Brent and Charlene Ashworth's home at 1 pm to see Brent's collections of Church documents, Hoffman papers, Butch and Sundance history, etc.

Please text Joel at 801-404-1199, De Ann at 801-361-2656, or Susan at 801-234-0081 to update your class info.

We are not aware of losing any additional classmates since our 45-year mini-reunion. We hope this is the case.

Friday Lunch Together
12:30 noon

The BYH Class of 1967 is having lunch at the Brick Oven (Heaps) in Provo on Friday, August 17th at 12:30 p.m. We need some idea of who will be there as a room has been reserved for 25 to 35 people. Please contact a member of the reunion committee (see list at bottom of this page)..

Friday Evening Party
7:30 p.m.

The Reunion Committee has added a casual get-to-gether on Friday evening of August 17 at 524 W. Vintage Drive, Provo, home of Susan Payne Rogers. We are asking everyone to bring their yearbooks, photos etc. to share. We have made a special memento to give to those who attend. We have had some fun as a committee reading what others wrote in our yearbooks. Some hope to rewrite any they are too embarrassed about having penned in ink. This party begin at 7:30 p.m. and end by 10 or so, because we will be up and in Payson to ride horses by 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Horse-back riding set for August 18, 2007

-- Horseback Ride August 18th
Date: Monday, June 18, 2007

Hey Dudes (and "Dudettes") -

I spoke with Dan Shaw about hosting a horseback riding activity as part of our 40th year reunion on Saturday morning, the 18th from his ranch at Elkridge (Payson foothills). [SEE DIRECTIONS BELOW]

Dan would love to help supply some horses, and James Pinegar (Kris' hubby) and I will supply the rest of the remuda. We will pre-ride a couple of small loop trails near Dan's home in Payson canyon and give everyone that expresses interest an opportunity to ride. Children? Let's stay with classmates and spouses only.

We can do this in two different groups if we get a large response - one hour or so for each trip, one starting at 10 am and another at noon.

Dan Shaw will provide a continental breakfast before we ride at 9 and 10:30 on the 18th at his ranch – this in lieu of the Subway sandwich lunch that we had previously planned at the end. This will provide more time to stop by Brent Ashworth’s new store in Provo before the Academy Tour, or directly after at 3:30 - 4 pm.

All class members and spouses are invited to Dan’s ranch, even if they are NOT horseback riding, to eat breakfast, visit and take photos.

All of these horses are just barely broke and have been used as "Bucking Stock" in major rodeos throughout the West so everyone is guaranteed a ride they will never remember - if they recover, that is! NO, No, no -- just kidding - these are super gentle, "anyone can ride" type of horses that we have used with other less experienced riders over the years.

We invite class members and their spouses to come ride, see some great scenery and enjoy each others' company along the trail.

Long pants, sunscreen and/or hats are recommended and bottled water or canteens can be put in the saddlebags, cameras are encouraged for Kodak moments and group photo ops.

Some class members such as De Ann Terry, Joe Gee and Steve Peterson have horses or mules and may want to bring their own animals which would be even better - encourage any others that have to do likewise.

We should be done (if we do two sessions) no later than 2 pm that afternoon.

We have arranged for a special tour of the restored Academy building (our "old digs") with Douglas Smoot, and we will do that together immediately after horseback riding, at 3 p.m.

Let me know whether you can attend or not -- my phone number and email address are listed below for those who have questions about the horseback ride - hope to see y'all on the Trail!

Historic Building Tour with L. Doug Smoot
Begins Saturday at 2 p.m.

Arrangements have now been made for a guided tour of the restored BY Academy Building with Brigham Young Academy Foundation preservation leader, Doug Smoot, beginning at 2 pm that afternoon immediately following the ride.

Provo City Library director, Gene Nelson, has reserved the Young Special Events Room (201) on the main floor across from the Art Gallery, to begin our tour.

Doug led the effort and committee that took several years to raise funds for the restoration -- he will provide unique "behind the scenes" perspectives of the many challenges that were overcome to preserve this historic structure for future generations. Do not miss this only opportunity to learn where your former classrooms, locker rooms, study carols, etc. are now in this finished edifice.

The building tour will conclude between 3 or 3:30 pm to allow members of the Class of 1967 to visit B. Ashworth's and to shower and attend the 40th Year Reunion dinner at the Riverside Country Club by 6 pm.

We invite all BY High alumni to join us for this special tour, especially the classes of '66 and '68, who graduated before and after our class of 1967!

Hope to see you in the Main Hall, Room 201, at 2 pm sharp on the 18th!
