Friday evening, July 19, 2013, beginning at 5 p.m., the ECS Alumni Banquet and All-Class Reunion will take place at the Tannenbaum Lodge at Holiday Valley. The evening will begin with a social hour at 5 p.m. with a buffet dinner served at 7 p.m.

Details and a reservation form can be found on the ECS website at www. (click on “alumni”). Please send reservations to Ellicottville Alumni Association, P.O. Box 1033, Ellicottville, NY 14731. All ECS former students and graduates (and their guest) are invited to attend.

One of the highlights of the evening will be the presentation of a commemorative plaque to the ECS senior boy and girl chosen to receive the annual Alumni Award of $300 each at graduation. The award recipients, along with their parents, will be special guests of the Alumni Association.

Special recognition will also be given to members of the five-year Honor Classes in attendance. A photographer will be present to record those classes, as well as candid shots to be included on the alumni webpage for next year. There will be displays of class memorabilia, pictures and yearbooks to browse before dinner.

This year’s gathering is again a two-day affair with brunch Saturday, July 20, at the United Church of Ellicottville from 9–11 a.m. It’s another great chance to renew friendships and trade memories.
