And It Came To Pass...

With shovels in hand and smiles in abundance to mark the gaiety of the occasion, members of BAHS gathered to bury the proof of the town's existence on Saturday am. A long list of items buried, include brochures, newspapers, a Legion Memorial Day program, high school yearbooks, a map of the town, memorabilia from the Centennial celebrations, and the list goes on. Children from North Star High school wrote letters commemorating the event...all to be opened in the year 2054!! The sesquicentennial year will be something to behold by the younger generation. A granite marker was placed!!
