Mr. Ayotte, Business Advisor. It is now that our task is finally accomplished. Our Year¬ book has gone to press; not without the usual frustrations, and hard work. It is at th is time, too that the staff should extend their thanks to Mr. Robert Heron, Mr. Julien Ayotte, and AAike Hachey. To Mike we owe our deepest appreciation for the many hours he has put into this yearbook and al¬ though an underclassman he is indeed out good friend. Mike Hachey, Photographer.

Those who have had him in the classroom as a teacher know of his patience and ability. He has always given, both in the classroom and outside, unselfishly. He has shown himself exceptional both as a teacher and person, and we, the class of ' 69, would like to give him our thanks and love. 6 aaEMgwa . . -■ _■ ■ __- - - _•_ Appreciation We would like to thank Miss Fiore, our class advisor, and Mrs. Hannigan, our co-advisor, for having co-ordinated our efforts so successfully. Miss Fiore has carried on on the same high level on which Mr. DeLellis had left off. With her Spartan endurance, she has survived our chaotic class meetings. We hope future classes in BHS w ill be fortunate enough to benefit from her guidance, but perhaps she may find a more lucrative career as Ruth Buzzi. We would like to also extend our thanks to Mr. Robert Heron, our yearbook advisor. His quiet and gentle good nature has endeared him to the hearts of the senior class. We will always remember this guide of our lives with deep affection. Mr. Minichiello ADMINISTRATION Knowledge comes but wisdom lingers. Alfred Lord Tennyson Mr. Manning Mr. Frappier Sa .. M " L r- Superintendent t Mr. Minichiello Anthony C. Minichiello has served as Super¬ intendent of the Bellingham School System for the past nine years. His dedication and efforts have brought our educational system to new horizons. With degrees from both Holy Cross College and Boston University his qualifications are surpassed only by his vast experience. Truly, there are few words available that could emphasize the effect this one man has had on our rapidly expanding town. ' _ ' 1 ' ’ _ Principal Mr. Manning Bellingham High School has undergone num¬ erous changes since this building opened in 1964, and many of the changes were incorpor¬ ated by our principal Albert A. Manning. He became principal at the end of the 1966-1967 school year and due to his knowledge, wisdom, and, most important, foresight we of Belling¬ ham High School owe him a deep and sincere thank you. ' Mr. Frappier Being one whose job is to enforce rules and designate punishments, Gerard E. Frappier does it well and is one of the most respected men in the entire school system. At Bellingham High School, Mr. Frappier is omnipotent and revered. When he gives an order it had better be done, but yet he is a truly compassionate human being with whom one can share almost any problem. A man like this is difficult to find, and we who know him value his friendship and guidance highly. AAR. LINDSAY FACULTY " A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

" Berkeley ;s f oo.’Krt • •. ?« F r e s h Under the direction of Miss Feccia and Mr. McDonough, the Freshman Class organized itself, so that it appears only chaotic, not a shambles. This, however, is normal for freshman year. We are sure that as sophomores their shaky confi¬ dence will become firm, and they will achieve the potential they show as a class in the long four years ahead. 1 s o P h o 0 The Sophomore Class should have an enjoyable time next year as it breaks into the upperclass ranks. Guided by class advisors Mr. Paul Smith and Miss Nancy Finegan, these students will be looking forward to such events as the arrival of their class rings and the Junior Prom, and will be maintaining greater responsibility and leader¬ ship in academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Their efforts and achievements will be beneficial to both the school and themselves. I MU Inninrc Elizabeth Kelly, Secretary; Diane Roy, Treasurer; Bradley Wong, President; John Minichiello, Advisor; Paul Hennessey, Vice-President. This year ' s juniors have done an excellent job of keeping up to the guiding lights of the school. From the day the juniors received their class rings, they were welcomed as upperclassmen. Moving through the year, the class planned to have the Junior Prom at the Sheraton Biltmore. Under the direction of Mr. John Minichiello, the juniors have proven themselves to be leaders and are sure to have a great year in ' 70.

Senior girls who distinguished themselves were Kathleen Martin, who was voted Miss Congeniality; Amanda Gardner, who was runner-up, and Diane ' Weston, who became our own Junior Miss. There are just not enough adjectives to describe all the talent embodied in her. She ' s really fantastic and we are extremely proud of her. She later dis¬ tinguished herself at the Massachusetts Junior Miss Pageant and won the Miss Breck Award for hairstyling. Paul Arsenault Kathleen Martin, Miss Congeniality; Diane Weston, Bellingham ' s Junior Miss; Amanda Gardner, Runner-up. Paul Arsenault has indeed brought a new glory to Bellingham High School. He is the first boy from Belling¬ ham to ever have been chosen for Boys ' Nation and one of two chosen from the whole state. He has distinguished himself in school in mock elections and will certainly succeed in the future. His academic achievements have changed the outlook of most people towards our school.

Class History BLAST OFF! Time: 8:00 a.m. Date: September 7, 1965 Destination: Outer Limits Skyrocketing upwards at last! Launched into new surroundings we were well on our way. Insignificant little freshmen? Maybe so, but as a team we were ready for any obstacles—even those gourmet lunches. Oh, the mental anguish of those first few days! Let me see, right-left or is it left-right? . . . Oh no the bell ... A late slip . . . the office . . . Are you kidding? Discouraged? Well, maybe a little, but with the leadership of our newly elected officers: president, Gerard Crotty: vice-president, Gerard Kass; secretary, Janet Boucher; and treasurer, Alice Fournier we were reassured of a smooth flight. Now that we were settled, things began happening. Freshmen-Get-Acquaintance Dance—we were the center of attraction . . . Dancing with Seniors, WOW!—But we can only do the fox trot!! Excitement and enthusiasm prevailed throughout the basketball season as our team led by All Star, Glen Gariepy, managed to bring home the Tri-Valley Crown. Sports were looking up in every field that year. The novelty of a football team was just too much to take. So as the first stage of our rocket dropped, we ventured forward in search of even GREATER EXPECTATIONS. Up, Up and Away! The lift off was a success. We had something to look back on and at the same time to push us forward. With the guidance of our advisors, Mr. and Mrs. Hannigan, and the assistance of Gerard Kass, president; Daniel Ranieri, vice-president; Gail Whitten, secretary, and Paula Brisson, treas¬ urer; our ever-increasing momentum was put to good use—We sponsored a hair-raising Halloween Dance. Just a little more self-assured, who knows we might even bunk a class! It was a year of frustra¬ tion for the faculty . . . bomb scare after bomb scare . . . What a way to start the day!! . . . Everyone outside ... It must be at least 20 below out there! . . . First period down the drain again. Aw Gee! However uneventful this, our second stage may seem, it gave us a sense of belonging and unity. Now that we were half way there, an extra boost of ambition speeded us onward to the next phase of our quest. Let ' s follow that Star. Nothing was impossible, not for our class. Headed by Robert Dupre, president; Daniel Ranieri, vice-president; Gail Whitten, secretary; Paula Brisson, treasurer; and our advisors, Mr. DeLellis and Mrs. Hannigan, we were ready to meet our challenge. Finally upperclassmen! Our shiny new rings were symbols of authority. For some strange reason junior hands were always in sight those first few weeks. As we looked ahead to our senior year class ' financial situation became the primary concern. So with the X-mas spirit we eagerly set out to sell the most beautifully attractive pine-scented candles to be had . . . Would you Believe?? Thanks to Mr. DeLellis we reaped a profit of over $1000. Proud of this fine accomplishment we became a class of many wonders; indestructible and unpredictable. What could possibly go amiss? The best was yet to come. Good old Mr. Rook supplied the moral support with his famous last words, ' ' you dummies ' ' . . . Determined Mr. Foster just never gave up—even though we didn ' t get it. The biggest event of the year was drawing near. In no time at all we made the wise choice of Kathy Martin, Prom-chairman, and Sally Kearman, co-chairman. ' The Impossible Dream of dancing in gowns and tuxes under chandeliers at the Sheraton Biltmore was becoming reality. 86 With the coronation of King Dennis " Punchy " McLaughlin and Queen Gail Whitten and her court of princesses, Paula Brisson and Ellen McNiff, the evening reached its height. Somehow we man¬ aged to dance as elegantly as possible to the bunny hop and Mexican Hat dance. Twelve o ' clock came much too soon—thank heaven for those post-prom parties. Now that we were flying high, overflowing with initiative, bounding with energy, it was no time to quit. We blazed our trail to fame with the shocking performance of " Murder Takes the Veil " . . . Just think, a chance to be discovered! . . . Work, Work, all the time Work, but it was well worth it. The entire class worked together as a synchronized machine to make the play a most cherished and unforgettable experience. We will always be grateful for all the time and effort put forth by our devoted directors, Mr. Foster, Miss Fiore, Mr. Crepeau and Mr. DeLellis. What more can we say besides " Thanks for the groovy play. " How can we ever forget those wild escapades at the New Moon and Pizza Pit after each performance. As a finale to this great weekend it was over to Deb ' s house for a swinging class party . . . Anyone for a swim? ... It was definitely a day that will head the list of our fondest high school memories. Our delight was marred only by the departure of two exceptional teachers, Mr. Rook and Mr. DeLellis, whom we came to look upon as true friends. Words cannot express the appreciation we feel for everything Mr. DeLellis has done for us. Can the future promise as much? There is but one direction to follow. Time is running short. With a tinge of regret, the third stage became a part of the past. To reach the unreachable. Whatever it may be, No matter how hopeless, No matter how far. We were inspired by phrases from " The Impossible Dream, " a song that embodied the undying spirit of our class. Faced with the greatest of our undertakings, we began the task of encapturing four years of growth and learning into our yearbook. As an appropriate theme, we chose " The Impossible Dream, " symbolic of graduation—The Glorious Quest. The loss of our advisor, Mr. DeLellis, was compensated by the replacement of Miss Fiore—our small but mighty class activator. It was extremely important that we select capable leaders for our final stand as a class. As a result of election , Michael Martin was given the presidency, with Philip Skrzat, vice-president; Ellen McNiff, secretary; and Paula Brisson, treasurer. The hope of the school was receiving its much desired accreditation. Early in October we underwent three tension filled days of evaluation ... Be yourselves . . . Act Naturally . . . They told us . . . Oh sure!? ... So many strange faces roaming the halls ... in and out of classes taking notes. Three long days and then months of doubtful waiting. Just in time for Christmas, the news of our well earned accreditation was proudly announced. Once again as a traditional Thanksgiving gesture of the senior class, food baskets were given to the needy families in town. Always on the move—Putting " Our Best Foot Forward, " we were sure to make headwav. Ama¬ teurs? ... No more. Directed by Mr. Crepeau, Miss Fiore, and Mrs. Kedian, and encouraged by our previous success, we staged an almost perfect performance, except for a little adlibbing. With the help of those February snowstorms, time seemed to be passing us by. Before we realized it Senior Week exercises were approachmq. Senior Commencement . . . Our " Sunrise and Sunset " . . . The beginning and the end. Kathy Martin re-elected chairman of the prom and Mary Tuttle, co-chairman were responsible for the evening ' s success. The Class Banquet . . . Our trip to Ted Hilton ' s ... so long awaited, and now a mere happening of yesterday, only to be remembered as two days of excitement and joy. Graduation was now in our grasp. Molded into young adults and trained as leaders of tomorrow, we leave our small world happy and proud, yet with sad hearts. Life from here on end is what we make it.

It has plans for several fund¬ raising events and an induction of worthy students in the spring. mite M Newspaper This year the newspaper, under the direction of Miss Fiore and Mr. Foster, has undergone many changes. No longer is it the production of one class, but now it is a project that the entire school may participate in. Besides being profes¬ sionally printed, the newspaper also has a new name, The Sounds of Scripture. The literary stan¬ dards are high and one may be proud to be a member of the staff.

Future Teachers of America The main objective of the F.T.A. is to show interested students the many as¬ pects of the teaching profession. Installa¬ ti on of Officers was held with Mr. Mini- chiello as guest speaker. Several students interested in a teaching field formed a panel to ask questions about their planned professions. Plans for the future include a visit to a teachers college.

Collecting money at the basketball games, on the buses and selling candy are just a few of the many things that they must do.

With the aid of Mrs. Kedian and Mr. Brisson the students have re¬ vealed some very good literary pieces.

' Very interesting!! ' ' The year of 1968-69 has been a very active year for B.H.S. ' s Student Council. In September, one representative and one alternate were elected from each homeroom thus enlarging their membership from thirty members to sixty-three members. Essentially, the Student Council will act as a mediary among the stu¬ dents, faculty, and administration. If there are any problems or ideas to be acted upon, they should be brought up at a Student Council meeting. As in past years, the Student Council started off the year with a very successful dance in honor of the football team. The third annual Student Council Banquet was held at the Beverly Club. Right on its heels came the annual Student Council Talent Show which was a big success. After returning from Christmas vacation, the Council started plans for the Winter Carnival Bell which was held on March 22. Much more was to follow. OOPS! I just want to swing! " Thanks to the determined efforts of Miss Fiore and Mr. Mohan, this club was formed at Belling¬ ham High. The leaders of the 80 future Jean- Claude Killys were Richard Hammond, President; Debra Dupre, Vice-President; Rolande Parent, Treasurer; and Mary Tuttle, Secretary. The big activity of the Ski Club took place February 20, 1969. Would you believe 2 busloads of " skiers " traveled to Mount Snow? The trip was a huge success—no broken bones. It was difficult to de¬ termine who enjoyed themselves more—the teachers or the students. 99 The Drama Club, under the direction of Mr. Crepeau is one of the largest organizations in the school. Their first theatrical attempt will be a one-act play, " High Win¬ dow " with Chris Bi- ron. Bob Fontaine, Helen Pelland, Mike Martin and Linda Wheeler. This play will be entered in competition.

The team will be handicapped next year by the loss of Captain Mike Dupre. Engrossed in thought! Trophy Presentation. GLEE CLUB club, the emphasis is often on chatter at rehearsals rather than music. However, they do manage to get to the music, doing a thorough job, directed by Miss Faith Martin. They sponsor three concerts a year, all successes. , ' 4 “jf ' VW.ii Vijft? Majorettes Under the capable leadership of Captain Phyllis Tosches, this year ' s major¬ ettes—Priscilla Biron, Deborah Hammond, Pauline Riendeau, Dora Tosches, Cheryl Laviolette, and Linda Wheeler, and Deborah Gadboishave once again proven themselves an added attraction to the Blackhawk band. Surely none of us appreciates the efforts these girls put into their fine performances and we now take this opportunity to thank them. That Blackhawk Marching Band returned to high school on August 25 for its first pre-season. For 3 days, Mr. Chamberlin taught new and vet¬ eran band members how to march in the patterns of motion style. As Bellingham is one of the few bands in the state that marches in this style, the band is beginning to gain in reputation as well as experience in marching in this difficult style. Bill Brisson was chosen drum major and Phyllis Tosches head majorette for the marching season. The Concert Band strives to perfect both Classical and popular music. The Stage Band rehearses Tuesdays at 7:30. This organization has appeared at many school functions playing in the modern " big band " style. A tour of high schools is being planned for the spring.
