Deadline To Donate For Honor Our Heroes Drive Is November 25

A number of BHS students have been hard at work as part of our annual Honor Our Heroes drive to gain items to send to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were fortunate to get a huge donation of candy from local dentists following halloween that we have been busy packing to be shipped to our troops. The students pictured have been donating their time after school to help with this effort.
If you would like to help, we will be collecting items until November 25. The following much needed and appreciated items are being collected for our wonderful GI’s: (Also a fund has been set up “honor our heroes” for those who’d rather give a check.)
