Class of 1997 Reunion
For the 15-year reunion, the Class of 1997 gathered for a fun, informal picnic with classmates and our families on the Saturday of Homecoming. This was the first year the 15-year reunion gathered during the day rather than during the evening. Because of the success of the event, we hope it becomes a tradition.
We planned to have a picnic down by Lake Valentine, but due to the chilly day, we moved the picnic inside to the Bethel Underground in the first floor of the Brushaber Commons. We enjoyed hamburgers and other picnic fare. We shared memories and flipped through memory books as the young children ran around the room.
Many of us headed up to the Football game immediately following the picnic to watch the Royals in the last minute victory against Concordia.
It was a great afternoon as hearts were stirred with gratitude for Bethel and the friendships made during our college years.
