 Fowlerville High School Alumni meetingbeing held at fairgrounds on June 12

The Fowlerville High School Alumni meeting is being held at the fairgrounds on Saturday, June 12, from 3-6 p.m.

“It’s ‘a go’,” said Judy Recker, the Alumni Association president. “We’ll be gathering in the area around the Finlan Gazebo in the front of the grounds. We are planning a low-key afternoon of visiting and renewing friendships. We also plan to recognize attendees from the honored classes.”

The event was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Alumni Association unlikely to be able to meet at the Fowlerville Junior High—its normal site—due to indoors public-health restrictions still in place. The gathering normally includes a banquet and program and is held the first Saturday after the high school graduation.

Realizing that a ‘normal’ Alumni Banquet & Meeting was not possible and not wishing to allow the event to be cancelled a second year-in-a-row, Recker said that she and the rest of the board started brainstorming via ZOOM and came up with this option.

“Cindy (Ruttman) Krebs has been contacting individuals from the honored classes, both last year and this year, in hopes of having them participate in a program that will recogize their milestone reunions,” said Recker. “We’ll also conduct our business meeting which is required under our bylaws.”

More information will be offered at a future date, but in the meantime plan on bringing your lawnchair to the Finlan Gazebo, along with any photos and memories that can be shared.
