It is with great regret that the Alumni Board has decided to cancel our 2021 Alumni Banquet because of Covid -19. Our plan is to have a triple banquet next year on Memorial weekend, May 28, 2022. It was a hard decision to make but felt we are still not safe enough to have a large gathering at this time.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If any of you would like to send in donations you may do so with the information at the bottom. We will still be awarding scholarships to the 2021 graduates. We will have financial obligations throughout the year such as our web site fees, mailbox fee, etc., and the scanning of the composites, the pictures that used to hang in the high school. They are starting to deteriorate. We are trying to preserve them. I have put a line on the form for general fund, composite donations and for scholarships.
Again, the Alumni Board wish we could continue with our plans for the 2021 banquet, but after talking with several people to get their input and with people coming from all over the United States and sometimes from other countries, we feel it is best to cancel the banquet this year.
We are going to put together a booklet for last years and this year’s graduates explaining the alumni association. We feel bad they will not be able to experience the banquet and being properly inducted into the organization. If any of you have any ideas to put in the booklet, please let me know. I am planning on putting a paragraph about some of the alumni and what they have done since they graduated and what the alumni association means to them. If you would like to be included, please send me a short paragraph about what the alumni association means to you. I would like to receive this information by April 20, 2021.
We look forward to having a large banquet next year and hope to see you all there.
