Bakersfield College is celebrating its 61st annual Alumni Barbecue on Sept. 17.

“This is a time to meet and greet, get together, hear from coaches, talk some football and some red & white,” says Becki Whitson, president of BC’s Alumni Association. Whitson is also “expecting a good sized crowd this year.”

This year the barbecue will be held in BC’s cafeteria. The doors open at 5 p.m. for social hour.

Dinner will be served from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Ticket prices are $32 for adults, $7 for children, and $22 for students. Free parking will be made available to everyone.

Ben & Jerry’s, beer, wine, soft dinks, BC’s jazz band, and drumline will be in attendance. Baby Cake’s Mini Donuts will be the newest addition to the alumni barbecue.
