2008-0620_all_class_reunion.jpgBased on two years of experience, it seems Anacortes High School alumni are more inclined to take a “sentimental journey” later in life. In other words, gray hair is prominent among those in attendance at the AHS All-Class reunions.

Organizers of a fledgling summer event are eager to add to their volunteer ranks, drawing interest from a range of age groups as plans get underway for the 3rd Annual All-Class Reunion Saturday, August 2.

“We’re happy with the quickly growing attendance at our All-Class reunion,” said volunteer Jeff Waldron, AHS Class of 1976. “It is inspiring to see so many alums so excited about getting together to reminisce and catch up on news of each others’ lives.”

“It would be great to see a cross section of alums from all classes, including our most recent grads. We could use as much input as possible as we put together plans. More recent graduates, together with our young-at-heart alums, can help us continue to make this event better each year.”

The first all-class reunion was held in 2006, the high school’s centennial, with strong support from Superintendent Chris Borgen, School Board and staff. It was such a hit, organizers decided to make it an annual event, complete with food, class displays and guest speaker.

The first of several meetings that will be held in preparation for the August 2 reunion is scheduled at 5:15 p.m., June 17 at the board meeting room on the second floor of Anacortes Middle School. Questions include a 2009 theme and consideration of a guest speaker.
