Closing the Curtain on the Dinner-Theater!
At the January meeting the BAHS Board voted to discontinue the annual Dinner-Theater after 30 years. It was a difficult decision. The Dinner-Theater began as one of the primary fund raisers for the BAHS and became a favorite community tradition. But over the years attendance declined and volunteers were not as readily available. The board found that it was not feasible to continue this event. 

THANK YOU to all who supported the Dinner-Theater from 1990-2019.

DID YOU KNOW?
The BAHS has class pictures from Bremen High School and Rushcreek Memorial High School for the years 1898 through 1962?   Below is the Bremen High School Class Picture of 1912. The picture is taken in the driveway of the home located on the southwest corner of Marietta Street and Strayer Avenue. Sitting in the driver’s seat is Ford Turner.  Ford Turner was born in Bremen in 1895. He died in 1998 at the age of 103!

Ford’s son, Bill, stated that his father began painting in the late 1950s and was very serious about his painting. Bill also provided a self portrait of Ford that was painted from a photograph that Bill had taken of Ford. (Above Right)
