Our thanks to the members of the 2017 Combined Class Reunion organizational committees who did so much to make last weekend such a great success!
Reunion activities took place over Labor Day Weekend and included members of the Classes of 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2012
Friday Night’s main event, the “Beer-n-Brats” social attracted the largest crowd ever to attend the Friday Night STAG gathering. Held in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons, it also included a “State of the School” update by Principal Lower, class group photos and a Cardinal home football game at 7:30 p.m. against Reynoldsburg H.S.

Saturday morning’s annual Family Bike Ride along Alum Creek was rained out! 1984 alumnus David Hohmann, who leads the excursion, promises that we’ll try again next year!

Thanks once again to all those who helped and participated! Work now shifts to preparing for the 2018 Combined Class Reunion next summer/fall for the Classes of 1968 (Golden), 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 2002, 2008 and 2013 — and hopefully the Classes of 1963 and 1958 as well!! Look for a reunion survey letter in October from alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 ([email protected]) asking interest in specific class/group activities and seeking volunteers to become part of their class’ reunion organizational committees.
We’ll see you at the next Alumni Event!!
