Centenary Celebration of Baileys Harbor Grade School Scheduled for June 2017

Baileys Harbor Grade School (BHGS) celebrates its centennial this June.

Lynn Mattke has taken the lead in planning a school picnic and presentation at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall on June 25 at 11 am. Traditionally, the end of the school year was marked by a festive outdoor potluck picnic that included the students, teachers and parents. The menu generally included hot dish, hot dogs and trimmings, Jell-O salad, coleslaw, pickles, cake and ice cream. The picnic for this celebration will be catered by Cornerstone Pub.

Mattke is making a concerted effort to contact and invite as many alumni of the school as possible to come together and share fond memories of Dick and Jane, eraser clapping, baseball games, geography bees, and all the trappings of a wonderful grammar school experience. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the school reunion, whether you attended BHGS or not. Contact Mattke at [email protected] or 920.495.3853.
