About the event
This year marks Willow Lake High School's 110th consecutive, annual all-school reunion. What an amazing tradition! Join us for the Alumni Banquet, which will begin promptly at 6:30pm with the presentation of the colors by our local American Legion. Enjoy a meal of smoked brisket sandwiches with all the fixin's, plus SDSU ice cream for dessert!
Due to gym space, the banquet is alumni-only. Non-WLHS spouses and community members are invited and encouraged to attend the Alumni Dance, held outdoors this year on main street in front of The Rusty Nail. Come and enjoy music by Greg Hanson & the Backroads. If you prefer a quieter space to visit with classmates, stay in the gym for our new "Hospitality Room," featuring refreshments and background music provided by Willow Lake's own Leland Harding III & the Family Tradition Band.
DONATIONS TO THE SCHOOL
Continuing a tradition started three years ago, you have the option to add a donation here with your registration for the Willow Lake Alumni "Dollar Per Year" Challenge. Would you consider gifting $1 for every year you've been out of high school, or any size donation? Since 2019, $8800 has been donated to our Willow Lake School! Beneficiaries include the FFA program, music department, school plays, the library, new playground equipment, and new outdoor picnic tables. Thank you for your continued generosity! Please note that, due to a technicality in our online event software, your donation will be made as the purchase of "tickets" in $5 increments.
New this year are two purchase options: 1) a newly printed Alumni Directory, and 2) a DVD of the 1960 Class B boys baksetball State Championship game, featuring Willow Lake vs. Harrisburg. The directory and video are $20 each.
Thank you for your continued support of your WLHS Alumni Association! We hope to see you in July!
Alumni Banquet & Dance
WLHS alumni are cordially invited to our Alumni Banquet. The $25 ticket for alums includes their admission into the dance. Spouses who are not WLHS alums are welcome to attend the dance, but will purchase that ticket ($10) at the gate.
If you are unable to attend the 2022 WLHS Alumni Banquet, please show your support by sending in your annual Alumni dues of $10.
Consider making a donation to your WLHS Alumni Association! Funds benefit projects at the WL School. Purchase these optional "tickets" in $5 increments to total your desired donation amount.
