Mark your calendars to join us on June 15-17 for the Girard Alumni celebrations and events.

Click here to make your advance registrations. You will need to complete one for each person attending.

Registration will be in the Common Area of the high school from 9:00am to noon on Saturday, June 16, as usual.  The Common Area is in the new entrance on Summit Street. A 30-minute documentary celebrating Girard’s 150-year history will be shown in the Shireman Performing Arts Center at 10am that morning and again at 4:30 in the afternoon just before the dinner in the cafeteria.  The regular program honoring the Classes of 1968 (the 50-year class) and 1993 (the 25-year class) will follow dinner in the Shireman Center.

Tickets for the dinner/dance will be $20 this year for advance registration.  That’s $5 less that the last two years.  Reservations are necessary in advance to help us determine how much food to order.  Click here to make your advance registrations. You will need to complete one for each person attending.

The dance this year will be at the Pink Pickle next door to the old “Nick’s Drive-In” on St. John beginning at 8pm.  The band, The Dirty Saints from Springfield, was recently voted the best band in the 417 area code. There’ll also be a surprise performer or two.  For those who don’t wish to attend the dance, they may go to the Common Area after the program to visit from 8-10pm.

For those who wish to attend the dance only, tickets will be $10 at the door and everyone is welcome.  This is not an event exclusively for alumni.

The Raymond Community Home is also planning an ice cream social from noon-2pm on Saturday at their location.

Other events for the day are still being organized and will be announced later. Please check back.
