Reunion Host Hotel~~

Fairfield by Marriott Hutchinson

June 1, 2020 update on the reunion--

Altho Kansas and Reno County is easing up somewhat on the Covid 19 restrictions, we still don't know what will be in effect for our reunion date. We will see what the end of July brings us and check with the hotel, American Legion, DJ and the high school for the Homecoming BBQ to see where they are at. In the case (heaven forbid) we do have to cancel, all registrations that have been turned in so far will be refunded so don't be afraid to turn yours in now if you want to.


We have found our new Host hotel, listed above.
OK, so I think things are coming together for the 2020 All School Reunion. It will not be the same as before since the closing of the Atrium but think we will have a good time. Host hotel is the Fairfield in Hutchinson (you can book your room now), we will have a meeting room reserved for our registrations, Kats Store and community hospitality room with coffee and water provided along with table for visiting at the Fairfield and our social hour, banquet and dance will be at the American Legion also here in Hutchinson. For now burger night at the Legion and the BBQ before the homecoming game in Chase are still a go. Registration paper will be coming in your upcoming March Alumni Newsletter. Make sure I have your current address plz. New this year is with your registration (while supplies last and first come, first served is your choice of any yearbook we have in stock. Check the website for what is available and make your choice known on your registration paper that you send in. Also new will be a red wristband put on at the time you pick up your registration packet that will get you into the game on Friday night and on Saturday at the American Legion. Keep looking on the website link for the 2020 All School Reunion for updates from time to time. Are you ready to party and see classmates?
