Fayette alumni reunion scheduled July 31 (03.17.2010

Written by David Green.

Fayette alumni are invited to the 2010 school reunion dinner scheduled July 31 at the high school.

The most noticeable change in this year’s reunion is scheduling the meal at 1 p.m. The change was made to give alumni a better opportunity to visit and become reacquainted throughout the afternoon.

“By serving a mid-day meal, it gives classes the opportunity to plan for individual class reunions in the evening,” said Dee Ferguson, one of the event organizers.

Festivities will be in the high school gymnasium and plans are being made final. A roast beef and baked chicken dinner will be served at 1 p.m. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and tours of the new school will be given until 12:30.

A distinguished alumni award(s) will be presented and guidelines for making nominations will be sent soon with the reunion invitation letter. Nominations for the award must be returned by June 1. The deadline for dinner reservations is July 15.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
