Benson Polytechnic High School Alumni Association

Planning your next reunion


Are you interested/involved with planning your class’ upcoming reunion?  We’re here to help.  We have a growing database of contact information, as well as an active presence on Facebook (also here), Twitter and LinkedIn.  Let us help you publicize your event!

If you’re looking for ideas on where to host your event, considering sharing our large picnic site at our annual Benson Community Picnic.  Blue Lake Park has a host of activities including a splash pad, playground, trails, sports courts and of course, the lake!  Contact us for more information on this.

Another idea is to use Kenton Station as a meeting place.  Several classes have held successful, informal reunion events there.  We also have a Benson Alumni “Meetup” there once a month.

Finally, please consider sharing any contact information you gather with us so that we can store it in our database for future events.  Your next reunion 5 or 10 years from now will be so much easier!


  1. A reunion for the Class of 1963 is up and running. Contact Roger Edwards at rrredwards [at] frontier [dot] com for updates. I’ll try to make your Feb BOD meeting and the Tech Show to advance our organizational efforts.

  2. The first ever, Class of ’63 reunion is now scheduled for Aug 16th, 2013, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel , NE 2nd Ave & Broadway in Portland. The date is the Friday immediately before the Benson Alumni Association’s picnic at Blue Lake Park on Saturday. Plan now to attend one or both events. Classmates, contact me for updates and to assure we have discovered where you are. I only made it as far as Gresham. Roger Edwards, rrredwards [at] frontier [dot] com.
