Social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner to follow at 6:30 p.m. Reservations will be mailed to alumni for whom we have a current address. If you do not receive an invitation in the mail by mid-April, please call one of the committee members to update your address.

Cost for the dinner and festivities is $30 per person. You can also send in your reservation through email and pay at the door. Reservation forms can also be found on the Blanchester School Foundation Facebook page and Contact Ellen Binkley Hill (937-728-1289) or Laura LeMaster Summers (937-689-1709) for more information.

If you cannot attend the banquet, please consider sending a donation for the scholarship fund; donations are tax-deductible and should be made out to Blanchester Schools Foundation (Alumni Fund).

We will be celebrating the 50th-year anniversaries for the classes of 1970 and 1971, as well as all of our other alumni. If you graduated with either of these classes, please contact your class organizer for information on special gatherings in addition to the banquet.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, table seating is limited to six. Please wear a mask and follow safety protocols. These guidelines may change between now and the banquet.
