    A heart of gold is our loving friend Craig Exner who has been the glue to most all the pieces that makes BPHS at BP School. I remember pumping his gas when I was a kid and his charming personality was felt at the pumps. It’s amazing to chat with Craig weekly/monthly and allow his knowledge of the history of families who began building the Barrineau Park community to ‘feel’ your heart. This man loves God, Family, Friends. Ppl and Fishing mainly in Perdido River. His wife Bonnie a wonderful Lady and a community doer who also shares her love for BPHS. Lynn Welch has also been deeply committed to the function of the Historical Society who I feel will make an excellent President. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful establishment for 9 years.

    all the “shout outs” that I know you will receive.
    Good Luck in your future endeavors.
