About the event
This year marks Willow Lake High School's 111th consecutive, annual all-school reunion. What an amazing tradition! Join us for the Alumni Banquet, which will begin in the school gym at 6:30pm. Enjoy a delicious meal, enjoy reminiscing with classmates, and help us welcome the graduating seniors from the WLHS Class of 2023.
Due to gym space, the banquet is alumni-only. However, non-WLHS spouses and community members are invited and encouraged to attend the Alumni Dance which will be held in the gym after the banquet. [Your banquet attendance ($25) also admits you to the dance. Those not attending the banquet pay $10 at the door for admittance to the dance.] Come and enjoy live music by local favorite Greg Hanson & the Backroads. There will be not be beverages available for sale at the dance, so please plan accordingly.
If you prefer a quieter space to visit with classmates, stay after the banquet in the school multi-purpose room (lunch room) to enjoy our Hospitality Room. Refreshments will be available. School and Alumni-related memorabilia will be on display, on loan from the Willow Lake Museum!
