“Our class was more (insert talented, athletic, or intellectual) than yours.” Organizers of the 3rd Annual AHS All-Class Reunion hope to see classes “battle” for attention at the Saturday, August 2 event.

“It’s our hope that more classes will set up display tables in a low-key, good-natured competition with other classes,” said volunteer Jeff Waldron, AHS Class of 1976. “We’ve had great turnout the first couple of years, but we’d like to see even more alums of all ages. A favorite at every reunion are the display tables sponsored by individual classes. We provide the tables, and class representatives put together their display and memorabilia.”

The All-Class Reunion, initiated in 2006 in honor of the high school’s centennial, is sponsored by the Anacortes Schools Foundation. Anyone interested in the event is invited to the next meeting, July 24, 5:15 p.m. at the school district office at the Middle School.

The All-Class Reunion will be held at Williams Gymnasium, 1-4 p.m. on August 2, a date purposefully scheduled to take advantage of the fact that many alums come home for the annual Arts Festival.
