The Brainerd High School Alumni Association hosted its seventh annual BHS Alumni Weekend over the weekend. The purpose of this Alumni Weekend serves as a fundraiser for the BHSAA Scholarship Fund and membership drive ($25 per year) for the BHSAA. This weekend has become a “reunion” of all BHS Classes for ‘60’s – present. Below is summary of scheduled events:
