40 41-Year Reunion Home Page

Hello fellow BHS Class of 1980 classmates,

Welcome back to your class homepage www.bluffton1980.com. After studying Classmates.com, Alumniclass.com and other social networking sites thinking that they might offer a better/faster/easier way to communicate, setting up our own website just seemed like the best approach. You can also find us as a Facebook group at Bluffton High School Class of 1980 or by searching in Facebook for "Bluffton High School Class of 1980".

This site will also contain similar information as the Facebook site, and is targeted for those classmates who do not use Facebook.

I would also like to capture contact information, so please fill out the contact information to make it easier to let you know about future events. If you have photos that you're willing to share, please post them to the Facebook group site or email them to blufftonclassof80@gmail.com and I'll post them to the photos page.

If you have any suggestions, please let us know.

Nick Zello
