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.

For additional information, contact committee members David Metcalf at 419/237-3009 or Dee Ann Potter at 419/237-2292.
