A family affair

Apr. 10, 2019 | Every year on April 10 siblings set their differences aside to celebrate their special bond.

National Siblings Day was originally founded by Claudia Evart in the late 90s after she lost both her siblings early in life. She chose April 10 because it was the birthday of her late sister, Lisette. According to Claudia, Siblings Day is meant to "develop, nurture, and sustain the special bond between siblings."

It's no secret that here at BCS we're all about family. We've welcomed many siblings throughout the years. The long-standing tradition dates back as early as 1887 when brothers B. and G. Smith arrived. Our current Association Board Chair, Linda Rodeck, BCS’81, followed her brothers, Bruce’78 and Keith’79, to Moulton Hill, and this year alone we have 15 sibling groups. Some might say that the relationships formed here are similar to those of siblings. We hope you'll take this opportunity to reach out to your siblings (whether real or forged) and let them know how much you appreciate them.
