Subject: Brighton High School, Rochester, New York
BHS Alumni Web Site (www.bhsalumni.net)
It is with sadness and regret that we announce to you:
We have decided not to renew the web hosting contract for bhsalumni.net web site. As of July 26, 2017, the website, which has served 86 BHS classes, will no longer be active. After almost 23 years and thousands of volunteer hours, which we were happy to provide, and expenses, we felt that it was time to “pass-the-torch.” Unfortunately, no one was qualified to receive it.
We made our decision based on traffic to the site, operational costs, interest from the BHS alumni community and commitment from the Brighton School District and the BHS Alumni Board. Costs are rising and interest and commitment seem to be declining.
Paul and David both have a deep sense of accomplishment for creating and maintaining the first High School Alumni Website ever built in Monroe County and an alumni database of 18,384. We both felt a sense of appreciation from the frequent and infrequent visitors to the BHS Alumni Web Site. We have received many accolades of praise from BHS alumni who had re-connected with fellow classmates and from those who truly appreciated the work and effort involved to provide the availability of this free website to the Brighton Community.
We wish to express our thanks to the many people who have helped to make www.bhsalumni.net a success.
Paul A. Hundredmark (Class of 1964) and David McBride (Class of 1962)
