President’s Blog, October 2015

Your alumni board is gearing up for the Bridge Festival weekend and look forward to seeing you at one of our venues for the weekend. This year the dates are Saturday/Sunday October 10th and 11th. Reminder to alumni to stop at the Farmer’s and Merchants Bank Community room on Saturday from 1-4 for the Alumni Welcome Center where you can rest and meet other alumni at the Festival.

The largest Alumni function will be the All Class Reunion at the Jackson Building Saturday October 10th from 5-9pm. Food and drink will be provided. Free-will donations appreciated. This is a perfect opportunity to visit with members from your graduating class and reminisce about your high school days. In addition, past teachers may be in attendance to visit with as well as friends from other classes who were not in your graduating class. So come out for an evening of renewing friendships and relaxing with other alumni. This year there will be locations available in the building for group pictures to be taken-so don’t forget a camera or cell phone. We were going to have an old time photo booth, however, due to some technical glitches it did not work out, perhaps next year.

I read in the latest issue of the Husky that many class reunions are being planned for the Bridge Festival weekend. It is wonderful to have so many alumni coming back that weekend. Class reunions include the classes of 1950, 1955, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1990. Hoping members of these classes find time to join other alumni at the All Class Reunion as well.

Until next month please remember to keep in contact with classmates, plan your next class reunion, support WHS, remember to renew membership and remain active. If you are currently not a member, please consider joining. You can go to our website at and sign up for membership as well as finding out about the Association.

A final item of importance to alumni is please only use the web site that is for our alumni association. There is a site that some have gotten on which says it is the Winterset Alumni site. This is incorrect so please do not sign up for their products or membership. This address is Please avoid this site.
