2009 Holidays

BCHS was proud to host the annual Philomath Christmas tree lighting ceremony. It was seasonably cold that evening, but our camaraderie kept us warm and not all of the student musicians froze to their instruments! The music was wonderful, Santa's cheer was contagious, and the community seemed to enjoy the cookies and new "Can You Hear Me? Now?" exhibition in the museum.
