Twenty San Diego Eagles gathered for the chapter’s first “Always an Eagle” event Sunday at the Green Dragon Tavern & Museum, Carlsbad, Calif. BCSD was one of 31 alumni chapters nationally to hold this event sponsored by the University.
BC sponsors such events around the country to welcome new graduates into local chapter areas. San Diego County generally gets 12-15 new graduates each year, returning home or coming to this area for the first time. While two members of the Class of 2016 registered for the event, they were unable to attend.

BCSD thought it would be fitting, as well, to acknowledge our senior alumni, the Golden Eagles, alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago. Pierre Godefroy ’56 attended yesterday and we presented him with a “Golden State Golden Eagle” certificate.
The Green Dragon Tavern & Museum (6115 Paseo Del Norte, Carlsbad) is a replica of the original Revolutionary War-era tavern in Boston. In expanded spaces, it is also a museum offering artifacts from the American Revolution time period, and it provides meeting rooms and more. Besides the Boston connection between BCSD and Green Dragon, Bruce Bartlett, president of the Green Dragon and history buff who conceived and executed the project, is a BC parent, father of Brooke Bartlett Rodriguez ’00.
