The All Classes Reunion presents an opportunity for mini-reunions within the mega reunion. Mr. John Baehr, retired teacher/club advisor/coach, will be attending the reunion and is calling upon all alumni who were members of the Reach Out Club to join him for a mini-reunion.
On the morning after the reunion, you can continue to catch up with old friends and participate in a great community event that honors the memory of one of our WHRHS classmates. The Bob Beckert Memorial Scholarship 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, June 1 at WHRHS. Bob was a member of the Class of 1976, was tragically taken from us 10 years ago when he was killed in an automobile accident in which he was a passenger. His friends and family started the run just a few months after Bob's passing and it has become a major annual event in the community. Bob and his wife, Nancy Schneider (Class of '78) had four children, who are carrying on the organization of the run/walk.
Runners and walkers alike, please plan to continue the reunion weekend by participating in this event, which raises funds for scholarships for graduating seniors from Watchung Hills. So, if you are coming from out of town, bring your running or walking shoes. For more information about the Bob Beckert Memorial Scholarship 5K Run/Walk, go to the website at www.run4rjb.com
