Hello OHS Alumni!
Alumni Weekend was a great success! The weather was perfect and Alumni participation was outstanding. The Friday Golf Tournament and luncheon were held at the Oneonta Country Club. On Saturday, at OHS, we had the Ceremony for our Alumnus of the Year and Inductions to our Athletic Hall of Fame and Wall of Distinction. After the Ceremony we had lunch outside followed by the Football Game against Chenango Forks. Additionally, there were many Class Reunions held during the weekend. Even though we did not hold the Friday evening gathering at the Armory, everyone had a fun and memorable Alumni Weekend.
I thank all the committees and volunteers for their hard work and dedication. The weekend was successful because a small group of our members found the time to plan and execute the events. Please consider joining a committee. We have begun planning our 2022 Alumni Weekend. We will keep you updated as we progress into next year.
Our Alumni Association meetings will resume in April 2022. We will hold our meetings at OHS and on Zoom. Our Zoom meetings have been very successful and we have received many positive comments from our local and out of town members. I encourage you to come to the meetings and participate with planning and implementing future Alumni Events. Volunteers make our Association successful.
In the past, many Alumni have renewed their membership during Alumni Weekend at the Friday evening gathering. Since we did not hold this event this year, please look on the back page of this newsletter, your membership expiration date is next to your mailing address. If your membership is expiring, I encourage you to renew your membership through our website or mail. Memberships, Donations and Fund Raisers provide funds for Scholarships, this Newsletter, Alumni Association Activities and administrative expenses.
