     A weekend of fun, fellowship and memories for the whole Bryan family is in store Oct. 5-7 when the college celebrates “Lion Pride” Homecoming 2007.
     Alumni Coordinator Warren Cole said festivities start Friday at noon with the Alumni Golf Tournament at the Dayton Golf and Country Club.
    
That afternoon the Lions Cub Bible school will open for children ages 4 to11 while Mom and Dad reunite with their classmates at cluster reunion dinners in the dining room. Alumni from 1966 and before will have their own Good Ole Days reunion dinner in the Rhea County Room, followed by the first of two special showings of the new “Inherit the Truth” video of the Scopes Trial reenactment.
     Following the dinners will be time for sports, as the volleyball team takes on Tennessee Temple and alumni challenge current Lions in baseball, soccer and basketball. A special treat during this time will be “Sundaes at the Ball Park” for spectators who attend.
     Saturday’s reunion schedule includes lunches with faculty members in the dining room, the homecoming soccer game against Tennessee Temple, a women’s soccer game with Brescia, two volleyball games, the Alumni Awards Dinner, a bonfire with all the fixings for s’mores, and the women’s alumni basketball game.
     Homecoming will close Sunday with the alumni worship service in Rudd Auditorium. Howard Burgoyne, ’82, will speak, and Jessi Hundley, a senior music major, will lead worship.
     “We are excited about ‘Lion Pride,’ and hope to see many of our alumni back on the Hill for homecoming,” Mr. Cole said. “Plan to join us for the weekend and reconnect with friends and with our alma mater.”
