The Alumni Board held their first meeting of the year
to prepare for this year's festivities.

Our reunion is held on the Saturday before Memorial Day of each year, which means this year's reunion will be on May 28th.

Our association has held an annual reunion every year since the organization was formed in 1894.

You are welcome and encouraged to purchase advance tickets. Prior purchased dance/banquet tickets will be available to be picked up at Donna & Viola's Shirts (formally The Locker Room) at 522 Main St., up to noon on Saturday, May 28th, and then at the door of the banquet. Dance tickets may be purchased at the gates.

The alumni members and guests are limited to 675 for the banquet, so get your reservations in quickly. Banquet tickets are $15 each. This year we are once again excited to announce that we are having the dance OUTDOORS - weather permitting! Main Street from 5th - 6th will be blocked off and we are having a street dance. The Silver Bullet Band will perform. They play a variety of music with an entertaining blend of Top 40 and traditional country-rock hits. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the festivities! Chris' Cafe and La Hacienda, two local downtown restaurants, will be open. Alcohol will be permitted - but no glass containers, please. If the weather does not cooperate, the dance will be held inside the city auditorium. Dance tickets are $5 each, Bracelets will be given at the gates. Gates will open at 8:30 PM.

Please Note: Construction is underway and Main Street from 1st to 5th Street is closed off. You will be detoured either on Brown or Parker Streets when you come in town.

Alumni Activities include: Parade through downtown - 10 a.m.; Social at high school cafeteria 2-4 pm.; Banquet/Meeting at high school gymnasium - 6-8 pm; Coffee Social at high school cafeteria (wheelchairs will be available) - following banquet - 8 - 10 pm.

The Library is sponsoring breakfkast again this year at the City Auditorium from 8 - 11am, catered by Chris Cakes - $6 for all you can eat.

Notable Quote:

"Of all the Alumnis in the East and West, this glorious Alumni of Osawatomie is the best. The Alumni has been a live organization ever since its coming to life in 1893. Miss Grace Adair Hunt was the first president of the organization, and out of her efforts it was established. And today, it is the largest and peppiest bunch of "old grads" in Kansas."
