BC alumni banquet is next month

The Benton Scholarship Foundation (BSF) is sponsoring the second Benton Community All-School Alumni Banquet on July 10, 2010 at the Keystone Turner Hall.

All Benton graduates are invited to the banquet, even though they may not have gotten a postcard letting them know about the event. The BSF has been working to create a database for class reunions. This database contains the known addresses of all Benton graduates through 2001. For this reason, Benton Alumni are asked to spread the word to each other. All proceeds will go to the BSF to provide scholarships to Benton graduates. The Benton graduates from 1965 are the first graduates of the school district. Graduates that year graduated from separate high schools from each town under the Benton name. The following year, all Benton students came together as one graduating class and graduated together as the Class of 1966.

If you are interested in attending, below are details about the event:

Social Hour: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Dinner: 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Dance: 8 p.m.

To reserve your place at this event, please send your name(s), graduation year(s) and registration fee(s) to: BSF, PO Box 129, Van Horne, IA 52346 or contact Jo Prusha @ 319-228-8701 ext. 351 or or Andrea Townsley @ 319-442-3221 or
