For those of you who have been following along, you'll remember that the BHS Class of 1970 recently held their 50th reunion culminating with the opening of a time capsule.

Presenting the check to the Brown family is (from left) Class of 70 representative Patty Tullis Mitchell, fellow class of '70 alum Beth Thiery Brown, Karen Brown Mealy and Kevin Brown. Thank you, Class of '70. We appreciate your generosity! Once a Bruin, always a Bruin! #BetterAtBlackford
Please spread the word!

Once a Bruin always a Bruin! The Blackford High School Class of 1970 had its big reveal Saturday night during their 50th reunion. The group examined the items recently retrieved from a time capsule buried 50 years earlier as part of the dedication of the school. So, what treasures did the class find tucked away for the past 50 years? Contents of the copper box included a Reflections yearbook, a BruInformer student newspaper, a student handbook, photos, a local newspaper, maps, and soil. Class members plan to share the items from the time capsule with the Blackford County Historical Society. From the photos shared by the class, it appears a good time was had by all at the reunion. Best wishes to all our Blackford Bruins! (A big thank you to Diane Ring and Don Rogers Photography for the provided photos.)
BCS seeks an additional Kindergarten teacher. (Please share.)

We'll see everyone back for class on Monday!
