Alumni Banquet

Founded in 1894, the Bethel College Alumni Association has held annual banquets since 1896.

The association again invites all alumni and friends of the college to this longtime event.

The 2021 banquet is scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3, in Jolliffe Auditorium in Memorial Hall, as part of the 2021 Fall Festival.

Following a delicious buffet meal, the program will include special recognition of the Golden Thresher Class of 1971 and presentation of the 2021 Outstanding Alumnus and Distinguished Achievement awards to exceptional graduates. The year’s other reunion classes will be acknowledged, including the Heritage Class of graduates from 1956 and earlier.

The Golden Thresher Class will sit together at the banquet. Seating for others is open. A reception with this year’s Alumni Association award recipients will follow the banquet.

Tickets are required for this event.
