Celebrate Me Home – Information



Greetings from The 2015 Homecoming Committee. Please mark your calendars for June 19, 20, 21, and 2015 – the dates for the next Big Sandy Pioneer Homecoming. We are excited for the coming months of planning and preparation for the event. We hope you are looking forward to the gathering with anticipation also!


The first invitations have been mailed to alumni. Even though we attempted to have accurate addresses, we have had a few returned in the mail. If you receive the Mountaineer but haven’t received your letter, please let us know so we can update your address.


We will celebrate Big Sandy High School Students from 1915 to 2015 with the parade theme “100 Years of Pioneers: The Past, The Present, The Future.” Start thinking of your float entry!


Check out our facebook page and the website, http://www.bigsandyhomecoming.com or bigsandyhomecoming.org. You can email us at info@bigsandyhomecoming.com with your email service (soon through the website as well).


You may purchase a memorial page for any loved ones who have passed away since last Homecoming OR who have never been listed in the book. Prices are $100 – full page,

$50 – ½ page, and $25 – ¼ page. A photo can be added to the memorial at no extra cost & can be emailed to us so you don’t have to part with the photo. Send memorial information & payment to us at PO Box 437, Big Sandy. Photo can be mailed also or emailed to nonadanreuther@yahoo.com. Please send memorial info to us NOW, as soon as you can, but definitely BEFORE January 15, 2015 to be included in the printing.


Housing is something we want to address this homecoming. We have heard that alumni would prefer to stay in Big Sandy if more accommodations were available. It won’t take long to fill the motel. Do you have a home, a room, a camper that you would rent out? Please contact Joleen Williams at 386-2267 if you can offer space to visiting alumni. We would love to have a list available when someone contacts us with a request.


Be sure to watch the Mountaineer, website, and Facebook page for future updates. The itinerary, registration forms, and general information will be announced in the coming months. We are looking forward to Celebrating You Home. Your 2015 Homecoming Committee Members: Phil (’69) & Vicki (’68) Silvan, Randy (’72) & Joleen (’76) Williams, Rusty (’73) & Nona (’73) Danreuther, Larry (’78) & Ann (’78) Bitz


Check the Mail…

You should have your Homecoming Letter by now!

Celebrate Me Home is coming to Big Sandy June 19, 20, and 21, 2015. This will be a Centennial year – 100 years of Pioneers.

Registration forms will be ready in January of 2015, and you will have the option of signing up here on this website.

It’s a good time to purchase a Memorial Page in memory of a loved one who has passed away since last Homecoming, or who has never been in the memorial book. A full page is $100, one-half page is $50, and a quarter-page is $25. The cost includes photos or text of your choice, which can be emailed through this website or mailed to the Homecoming Committee (see the About page for details). The deadline for memorial material is January 15, 2015, for inclusion in the printing of the booklet.

Finding a place to stay while you enjoy the festivities is important, and there are several options available. You can make arrangements to stay at the Big Sandy RV Park (call 406-788-2534), Q’s Motel (406-378-2389), or call or email the committee for information about homes, rooms and campers for rent from local residents for the weekend.

Are you in touch with foreign exchange students or classmates that didn’t graduation from BSHS but went to school with you? Invite them to Homecoming! Share the web address (either .com or .org) or Like our Facebook page and share the link. If you need help learning how, call, email, or message as best you can and we’ll give you a hand!

There is much more in the letter – if you or someone you know would like a copy and didn’t get one, please share the address with the committee. On the other hand, if you prefer email, or would like your address taken off the list for any reason, please notify the committee as soon as possible.
