What a kick! Wonderful to hear the marching band play Hoorah for Berry, Tequila (and Berry's anthem?) after allllllll  these years. Does anyone have any "Crow's Nests" from 1968-69, 1969-70 or 1970-71 ?

I was in the Class of 1970, thisweb site has really been a great trip back to our high school days.  I attended the Friday night festivities for the 69 class reunion.  It was great to see a lot of old friends, made some new ones too.

I was 2 years behind and didn't get to be a 1969 class member,but it is always a part of me since I made it to the 6th grade with most of you that remember Mrs Gary. Visit me on facebook under "Just John Miller " and see what I've been up to. I get to see Joe Terry and others from time to time at a few events around Vestavia Hills. Sandy and I live up and behind Party Time in Vestavia Hills now for the last 5 years.May God bless and I am so glad this site is here.

Fabulous additions to the picture albums! Somebody needs to learn how to "tag" pictures like they do on Facebook!

Dear All...What a great reunion we had. I cannot thank the reunion committee enough for all your hard work. As I was touring the school someone commented that some of you were decorating at the Club. Many thanks for making it so memorable and so special. I loved seeing everyone and getting to talk to so many special people from the past. Some of you I went to elementary school with and some were friends from Jr. High or High School. It was such a good time and I thank everyone for all the memories that I am so grateful to have with so many of you. That is what we take with us from high school is the precious memories. Thanks to each of you for those memories!

Wow! I had a great time! The Odds & Ends were great! How many reunions are lucky enough to have a band from our past. And guys, you were hot!  I just did not get a chance to say hello to every one . wished we  could have one more day, since my slow memory finally began kicking in about events and folks from so long ago. I mean, some of you go back to elementary with me and the Brownies! Wow, this was a wonderful trip for me. Thank all of you for all the effort and work to make this special weekend. I can't wipe the smile off my face...Forty years...oh me oh my.

Many, many thanks to the Reunion Committee.  Great Job!  You even managed to plan the weather.  If you could only have slowed down time.  So many people to see, so much to say and so many memories to share.  Great to see all of you.  I am thankful to have had the opportunity to see all of you and remember some of the best times of my life.

I have been trying for WEEKS to work out a way to come but unfortunately I can't.  I am the chair of the Druid Hills Artist Market in Atlanta and am an artist in the show and in charge of 50 other artists! I just CAN"T believe the reunion is the same weekend.  I will so miss seeing everyone.  I've loved the website and hope you will load LOTS of pictures onto the site after the reunion! I've been married to my husband Roger for 35 years now and our 18 year old son, Alex, heads to college this fall. Memories from Berry are some of the best of my life. The closeness of the class is so obvious with all the work you folks have done on the reunion and with so many who plan to attend. I will be thinking about everyone the whole weekend!

What a fabulous site! Thanks to whoever put it together. I won't be able to attend the reunion, but thanks to this site I feel like I have. I know you all will have a great time. I saw Rick Northrup's posting about looking forward to spending more time with his grandkids. Can you believe we have grandkids? Aren't they great, and don't they make you feel both old and young at the same time?

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzz I looked at the 1969 Berry classmates and recognized everyone.  I looked at the past reunion pictures on the website and recognized about two people... I think.  I am sure very few of you will recognize me.
I left Berry HS in 1967 or so bound for military school.  Yes, I deserved it, but it worked wonders.
I really look forward to being reaquainted on 04/16 as we twirl to the "old" music at the pub.  I REALLY love to cross paths with people not seen in years if not decades.

Hello, fellow old timers!  I hope the last 41 years have be exciting, healthy and happy years for my former classmates.  Our class had a lot going for it!  The reunion site is excellent and I thank everyone who contributed to it.  My husband & I will be in S.C. that weekend, unable to attend.  I'll be there, in spirit, dancing the evening away & singing our old favorite tunes with our old band & laughing with my old pal Benje.  I moved away from Alabama so many years ago & was amiss in staying in touch with close friends.  Have a great event!!

Thanks to those who set up this web site. Its a lot of fun. Ironically, I was early to a meeting in Birmingham today and rode by Berry and my old neighborhood (Regent Forest).  Berry actually looks a lot better than when we went there and the old neighborhoods around the school stilll look good too.  Hope to see everyone at the reunion.
