The Brentwood High School Alumni Association held its annual all-school reunion on Friday evening in the BHS courtyard. What the BAA calls its Third Weekend in September was once again well attended, with well over 100 turning out to renew old acquaintances. BHS graduates from as far back as the 1930s attended.

Guided tours of the high school were given by Brentwood School District Superintendent David Faulkner.

Also during the weekend, separate class reunion parties were held by the classes of 1953, 1955, 1960, 1965, 1970 and 1973.
