Over 500 Atlantic High School Alumni Attend Weekend Festivities

News

July 17th, 2012 by Jim Field

The Atlantic All Class Reunion saw success last weekend with alumni from several states and classes represented within a 50-year span.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful weekend to host the All Class Reunion,” Atlantic Area Chamber Director Megan Roberts said. “The heat gave way on Saturday evening and the street dance crowd was much appreciative.”
Overall, more than 500 alum were present at the different events throughout the weekend of July 13-14, Roberts said. Pleased with the progress from last year, Roberts said she hoped to see it grow even larger in 2013.
“We have every intention of continuing the alumni event because the Chamber business community sees great value in bringing those folks back to town,” Roberts said.
The Reunion weekend kicked off with a wine and appetizer reception Friday night and was followed by tours of the Atlantic High School and Washington Elementary on Saturday. The Atlantic Middle School and Schuler Elementary were closed for construction. The history of Atlantic video was also shown Saturday as well. The weekend activities concluded with a street dance at the Rock Island Depot.
“We heard many positive comments about our beautiful schools and many alum were appreciative of the organized events,” Roberts said. “As always, you never know what opportunities for our community may come out of reconnecting some of these alumni with their home of Atlantic, Iowa.”
