Welcome to the reunion website for Bethesda Chevy Chase High School BCC Class of 1962. Can you believe it is (now more than) 50 years from our graduation?
This website was created by the reunion organizers as part of the 50th reunion. It’s been so popular that we will keep it going at least for the next few years. On these pages you’ll find profiles of your classmates along with messages, descriptions of reunion events, and photographs old and new.
We had a wonderful 50th reunion the weekend of November 16 and 17, 2012, at the Bethesda Hyatt Hotel (where People’s Drug used to be). The first gathering was Friday evening at the hotel, and then on Saturday we toured a much-renovated B-CC in the morning and went on a walking tour of Bethesda in the afternoon. The main event was Saturday night at the hotel, where about 190 of us enjoyed talk and food throughout the evening. Sunday morning we had breakfast to recap our time together. We began then to plan for another Bethesda gathering in five years!
Did you know there are 75 Class of 1962 B-CC alums living in the western states - 34 in California alone? It's a long way to Bethesda from there. So a West-Coast Mini-Event was held on Sunday, September 15, 2013, for those who didn’t make the main event in Bethesda, and to give those who did attend the 50th a chance to meet again. Richard Lane hosted this "51st" at his home in Hillsborough, California, just south of San Francisco and only a few miles from the SF Airport.

The West-Coast Mini-Event was so much fun that Rich is hosting a "52nd" as well, on August 31, 2014 (for more info, see WEST-COAST MINI 2014, at left). For those who live in the west, here’s another chance to get together without a major trip back east. And for those who live farther away, it’s another great excuse to visit sunny California.
