Sad News Re Greg Skarr

Sorry to inform everyone that Greg Skarr has passed due to complications of diabetes. His obituary can be read here:

It was a fantastic night!!

I’m sure all that were there can agree that the Class of 1973 really knows how to have a good time!  It was an epic party!  If you were there, we were all glad to see you… and if you weren’t able to come, the planning for the 45th has started, so please send your email and address in via the contact form or by emailing  Love to you all from the webmaster!

Then Vs Now Slideshow

$60 price extended! The Reunion is less than 3 weeks away!

We had previously extended the $60 price to September 15th, and that got a LOT of you out of the woods.  We thought we were going to have to raise the price to $75, but there has been such a good turn out that we can hold the previous price of $60!   You can register by mail by mailing a check for $60. Please make your checks out to: “BOGAN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS of 1973 REUNION” and mail to: Joanne McNamee, 235 West Fairview Way, Palatine, Illinois 60067.  If you’d rather just let us know you intend to come and pay at the door, please contact us via the form on the lower right corner of the home page!  However, we can accept cash only at the door, so get those checks in early if you want to pay that way!

Photos Needed!

As shown in the sample of our illustrious classmate George, we intend to have a slide show that shows “Then and Now” photos of those who are attending the reunion in October.  We are going to have ONE page per person as shown on the sample.

sample slide

In order to do this, we need photo(s) of you as you are now — perhaps with your family, perhaps doing one of your favorite things, at your job, getting an award, or perhaps just a great headshot that you happen to have now.  It’s up to you!  But remember, since it is only one page, the more pics you send, the smaller each pic will be, and to keep the work down for us, there should be NO MORE THAN FOUR.  Also, since these will be projected up on a large screen, the pictures should be good resolution when sent (but not too big or the computer will choke!) The slideshow will also be posted to the reunion webpage after the party.
We have your “Then” picture from the yearbook, of course, so no need to dig for those.
Please send pictures in any of the following formats: .jpg, .pdf, .eps, .psd, .tiff format.  Please keep file sizes under 500 mg.
PLEASE name your pictures in the following format:  lastname_firstname_pic1.jpg, lastname_firstname_pic2.jpg, etc.
Please send the picture to  Please do NOT send the pictures to any other email, even if you have an email for one of the reunion committee members, and please follow the naming convention or we cannot guarantee we will be organized enough to include it (LOL!)
Thanks!  We look forward to seeing you at the Class Reunion!
