Rushcreek Memorial High School Class of 1954

In September many members of RMHS Class of 1954 and their guests enjoyed a luncheon and time to visit with their classmate, Wanda (Hockman) Goodell, who was visiting from Washington State. Wanda stated that “of the many museums, I’ve visited, it (BAHS) is my favorite.  When I think of what you’ve done for a small town, it is special. I love museums. Thank you for all you do for it.”

In October, Class member Lynn Freisner and his wife Lynda, were visiting from Florida. They visited the museum for the first time and really enjoyed it.
REMINDER! REMINDER!
The museum will closed from November 3, 2019 until April 2020.
Please plan to stop by soon. Remember - it is FREE of CHARGE.

Past Perfect Software
Earlier this year the BAHS began converting its records of artifacts from Excel to “Past Perfect” software. BAHS has over 8,000 artifacts recorded and more come in nearly every day! “Past Perfect” is the world’s leading software program for collection management. Over 10,000 organizations worldwide, including museums of all sizes, use this software. Archivist, Ken Shofter, reports that 95% of the conversion has been completed. Our thanks go to Ken and many others, who have worked, on this project- which included some upgrades to our computer system as well.
