Welcome to the official, non-profit website created for the boys and girls of the former Bonny Oaks School in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Hi, I am Christine Haven, your Webmaster.  You can always find me at texasbonny@yahoo.com
It is the intention of this website to give the former children of the Bonny Oaks School and Vine Street Children's Home an avenue to help visit their past and hopefully renew old friendships.  NoBOS_Clinic.jpg (25643 bytes) barn.jpg (26879 bytes) matter how or why we arrived at the homes, we were there as children, and share that common bond.


Please use your website for the outlet it was intended and enjoy it's pages.

True to our country's heritage, true to our Bonny Oaks home, we said the Pledge of Allegiance at school on campus every day:

of the United States of America
and to the Republic, for which it stands
One Nation Under God,
Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice
for All."
