With the local success of the Springville and Eden communities hosting alumni weekends, the Gowanda Boosters Club will be kicking off their first Alumni Weekend July 24-26.
The purpose of the weekend of events is to allow all classes to gather and to help take some of the pressure of those trying to plan reunions every five years.
A family-friendly agenda is planned with plenty of opportunities for classes to reconnect with their own classmates as well as upper and lower classmen. Most of the activities are free or minimal fee for participation.
Organizers are happy to include local attractions such as Zoar Valley, Hollywood Theater Gateway Park and Cattaraugus Community Center in the activities.
The hope is to build on this event every year and bring GCS alumni back to their roots.
In addition to sponsoring a hole in the annual Boosters G-Town Golf Tournament now included in the weekend of events, there is an opportunity to be an alumni weekend event sponsor.
