Some of you may remember Dave LeSueur, from Burbank High’s Class of ’67. He sent along the following:
As you know, I am being inducted into the BHS Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, Sept. 8. Another basketball player (from the class of ’65), John Gaball, is also being inducted. So I am hosting a reception/get together on Saturday, September 8, from noon until 3 p.m. at Burbank High honoring the basketball teams of 1965 (Gaball’s team) and 1967 (my team). The event is not just for the players but also for any friends, relatives, well-wishers, and former groupies who want to come. Basically, it’s an excuse to get together with people who, understandably, are not interested in coming to the ceremony that night but would still like to visit with friends from that era. All classes are invited.
The reception honoring the ’65 and ’67 basketball teams will be held Saturday, Sept. 8, noon to 3 p.m., in the BHS art room and, if needed, the dance room. (The two rooms are right across the hall from each other.) It will be very informal—i.e., wear whatever you like.
The evening ceremony is being held in the BHS gym. There is a “meet and greet” at 5:30 pm with the ceremony starting at 6:00 pm.
John Gaball (Class of ’65) and Coach Jack Loutensock will also be honored. If you are in the Southern California area, take advantage of this opportunity to see some Burbank High faces!
