Hello Classmates,


I have very sad news to share with you. Our Classmate and Friend Dan Reynolds passed away last night Monday, October 1st of a heart attack. Don’t know about the arrangements yet, but when I do I will post them on this website. Please keep Dan’s family in your prayers.

Hello Classmates!!!

So sorry to announce that there will not be a 45th Reunion in 2016!!! I personally could not plan anything because of my work schedule!!! If someone else in our Class would like to take the reins and plan something  by the End of the year that is perfectly fine but it is already October!!! If you would like to get together before our 50th and don't mind that we will be off a year we could possibly have something in 2017? Please let me know your thoughts on this? Perhaps a picnic or something casual?  We will definitely have a 50th Reunion and I look forward to seeing everyone there!!! Thank you!!!

WOW!!!What a turnout for our 40th BGHS Reunion!!!! Friday night at the football game 120 total (88 classmates)  and Saturday night 160 (110 classmates).  A great time was had by all who came together to catch up and talk about the good ole days!!! Safe travels to those that are going home today and please let us know how much you liked the reunion, what you didn't like and and what we could do to make it a better experience for you. We already know to make the font on the name tags bigger and make the spouses nametags a different color....done!!!  As a whole, I think everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.  Be sure to check this site often to keep up with our classmates and to check the home page for any news about what's going on in the BGHS Class of 71 nation!!!GO PURPLES!!!
