Many albums below have new photos added to them.
But we still need class photos from most of the elementary schools! So far, we only have photos from Crim and Kenwood.

SEEKING PHOTOS from our school years!
If you have some you are willing to share, please send them to Patricia Biesiot pbiesiot@gmail.com and she'll set up the online photo albums.
Photo must be in .jpg, .gif, or .png format.
It would be really helpful if you could identify the people in the photos when you send them. Thanks!

If you have photos, but don't have access to a scanner, let Pat know and we'll figure out a way for you to mail them to her so she can scan and upload for you.

Types of photos we're looking for:
  • Previous reunions 10th, 20th, etc.
  • Homecoming, prom, random school dances
  • BG elementary school group photos (yup, photos were in black & white back then!)
  • Newspaper clippings with photos of classmates
  • Recent photos of your and your family (and your pets!)

Scroll down to the Albums and choose either Click to View Slide Show or Click to View Page Layout.
Click on the small preview images at the bottom of the first page of each album to view different photos or use the arrows on the sides of each photo to view the other photos in each album.

A few folks are not identified, noted by ?? in the photo captions. If you know who they are, please tell Patricia Biesiot pbiesiot@gmail.com so she can update.
