We were rewarded once again by another outstanding basketball team. Our Hawks brought home the Bay State Class C title and advanced to the semifinals in the Tech Tournament at Boston Garden. Spring arrived and with it the ordering of our class rings. Measurements were taken then. Anxiously, we awaited our Junior year to receive the symbol of upper¬ classman. June came quickly, and with it exams, our class trip to Rocky Point, and then we were Juniors! Junior Year 1963-1964 As we entered Bellingham High School in 1963, we were conscious of the fact that we were underclassmen no longer, but full-fledged upperclassmen. We began the year by electing officers. Chosen under the guidance of advisor Mr. Hayes were: Brian Hughes, president; Joseph Laplante, vice-president; Linda Godbout, secre¬ tary; Claire Biron, treasurer; and Ronald Lussier and Nancy Belanger, Student Coun¬ cil. Two big and important activities faced us: the publication of the school news¬ paper, the Student Voice, and the planning of our Junior Prom. Class rings arrived and there were many happy Juniors to be found. In December, we were saddened by the death of our Principal James J. Keough, a member of the Bellingham school system for twenty-five years. Basketball once again highlighted the sports calendar, and we hailed still another championship team. Tri-County League Champs, the Hawks, played the last season of basketball in our small eleven-room school. We just missed by a few weeks, playing in our brand new high school. February 21, 1964, found us moving into the spacious, new thirty-four room Jr.-Sr. High School. Bright, sparkling facilities greeted us and made work much more pleasant. March and April sped by; and May 15th, the big night, arrived. Fifty-two couples danced to the strains of A Summer Place. Iris Van Heldon was crowned queen and Gerald Wall, king, with Pamela Robinson and Claire Biron in the Queen ' s court. Without the work of the Prom Committee, headed by Gerald Wall and Carloyn Conte, the affair could never have been such a splendid success. The year was almost finished; a car wash ended our activities. Could we ever forget Mr. Heron and Mr. Hannigan, gym, cafeteria meals, a faculty basketball game in May, and the thought that we would soon be Seniors? - ' SSt« w. C ' c ■

Class History Freshman Year 1961-1962 In September of 1961, we entered Bellingham High School as the class of 1965. Frightened and awed by the fact that we were finally Freshmen in high school, we viewed our new surroundings with doubt and uncertainty; the tiny eleven-room school looked mighty big to us. Victims of two platooning, we were divided that year, the college course attending the morning session, and the commercial course, the afternoon. We quickly set about electing class officers. Chosen as Freshman leaders, under the direction of class advisors, Mrs. Louise Kelley and Mr. Will.iam Conlan, were Ronald Randall, president; Russell Phillips, vice-president, Kathleen Daley, secretary; Ruth Zakrosky, assistant secretary; Patricia Scolavino, treasurer; and Pauline Brothers, assistant treasurer, while Ann Huston and Roger Lariviere represented us in the Student Council. The Senior Get-Acquainted Dance warmly welcomed us to high school life. The tremendous record of our basketball team overshadowed all other sports events. A perfect Tri-County League record was posted by our Hawks. In the midst of the season we were hit by mid-year exams’ and took three days off for those severe headaches. But we recuperated in time to hold our biggest and only social event of the year, the Mardi Gras Dance. A huge success, financially and socially, it helped our bank account grow substantially. The resj of the year passed rapidly, and suddenly it was June and final exams. Who can forget Mr. Conlan and Mr. Fleming, our first class trip to Nantasket, and finally promotion to Sophomore status? Sophomore Year 1962-1963 The school year 1962-1963 found us no longer lost and bewildered, but settled and ready to get back into the routine of school life. We were no longer on double sessions. Under the supervision of Mr. David Hayes and Mr. Francis Flynn, we elected Joseph Laplante, president; Brian Hughes, vice-president; Linda Godbout, secretary; and Ruth Zakrosky, treasurer. Student Council representatives were Robert Kass and Carolyn Conte. Soon after, we began planning our Harvest Hop which proved to be another successful social event.

Seniors at last! After three years of hard work, we finally reached our fourth and final year. Led by Advisor Mr. Hayes, and officers Brian Hughes, president; Robert Kass, vice-president; Denise Savard, secretary; and Claire Biron, treasurer, we quickly set about working to make this a successful and eventful year. Repre¬ senting us in Student Court were Linda Mostek, Ann Minichiello, Iris Van Helden, and Norman Bardell. Our first class activity was the annual Senior Get-Acquainted Dance, warmly wel¬ coming the Class of 1969. Mr. Flebotte Day, organized by the class, was proclaimed; the entire student body participated in welcoming our new principal. The newly instituted Senior Program Committee, formed to co-ordinate our class activities, or¬ ganized a highly successful Turkey Raffle. In the Thanksgiving spirit, the class donated food baskets to needy families in town. One of the biggest projects of the year was compiling our yearbook, The Epi¬ logue. The biggest edition in B.H.S. history, this book will remain as a lasting re¬ minder of our four-year stay. In January, the staff almost suffered a heart-attack when our advisor, Mr. James Ryan, was called by Uncle Sam, but a few days later we were reassured that he would still be with us. On the sports scene, our track team made a fine showing this season, a great improvement over last year. In basketball, though no championships were won, we were treated to an exciting and suspense-filled season. Leaving the squad were Seniors Norm Bardell, Bob Kass, and Jerry Wall. Swiftly, Spring overtook us. Now we are at June ' s door. Exams are over. Senior week has arrived: our class banquet, yearbook day, our class trip to Ted Hiltons, class day exercises, and our commencement ball. There is only one step left to take, Graduation. Four years ago, it seemed so far away. Now it is here. B.H.S., it was good to know you.
