To: All BHS Alumni

To: All BHS Alumni:

After many years of publishing the "Sr. Bulldog News" newsletter, Herb Vincent has decided to retire. We are in the process of putting together a committee of Burbank High School Alumni to redesign the newsletter and include some of the innovative ideas that have been proposed.

This is a great opportunity for alumni to get involved in the Sr. Bulldogs Foundation. In this cyber world it is no longer necessary to live in Burbank. Everything can be sent electronically so that anyone can become involved.

One of our alumni has already volunteered to design a new masthead so we are quickly moving forward. Your contribution can be as little as sending in photos and/or articles that you may have found or written that would be of interest to our alumni.

The committee is looking for people that have one or more of the following skills:

Graphic Design

We are also looking for someone to take on the role of Editor. If you would like to be part of this new and exciting change to the newsletter please contact us at

Thank you.

Carol Brown Baker ('67)
President, Sr. Bulldogs Foundation

Bruce Gatton BHS '71 Passed Away July 31, 2011

Email from Cathy Nicholls Coyle BHS '67 today:

Hi Alan, Linda & Cathy: Just heard more sad news today when Greg Gatton, from our class ('67), called to inform us of his brother, Bruce Gatton's ('71) passing on Sunday, July 31, 2011. Bruce had been suffering for several years with pancreatic cancer.

John & I have known Bruce since he helped coach our youngest son on the Burbank High football team in the late '80's. Bruce was always the first one to help out no matter what was needed. He was a giant of a man and very intimidating in appearance, yet had a heart of gold. We will miss him dearly. He leaves behind his father; brother, Greg; and two sons, Mitchell and Paul.
