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:

  • Sunday – Bring Back the Praise event held at Tucker Baptist Church.  T-Ran Gilbert and the New United Church choir were the featured performers.  Donations were collected to benefit the Bible in School program at Brainerd High School.
