New Richmond Alumni Association Watches the NR Pride Grow
Last August, New Richmond held its first ever All-Classes Alumni Reunion at Coney Island’s Moonlight Gardens. This event reunited over 460 NR alums, with class representation dating back to as early as 1941. It was this very event that sparked the establishment of the New Richmond Alumni Association (NRAA), with the intent of supporting and giving back to the New Richmond Schools and Community.
As a result of the 2017 reunion dinner, the NRAA was able to provide scholarships to two graduates of the class of 2018. “We’re excited to present Principal Bailey with $2000 in scholarship funding for NRHS,” stated Mr. Bob Lees, a member of the NRAA. “This years reunion planning is in full swing and we are hoping to earn even more for student scholarships and to continue to solidify our generations of alumni into a strong force to support our schools.”
Building on the success and popularity of last year, the NRAA is excited to present the second annual All-Classes Alumni Reunion to be held on Saturday, June 30, again at Coney Island’s Moonlight Gardens. With graduation just a week away, members of all classes - including the newest batch of 2018 alums - and their guest are invited to enjoy this special event.
With an opportunity for alumni to interact and socialize with old and new friends, there will be a social hour with a cash bar, live musical entertainment from local groups, a short program with class introductions and of course a full buffet dinner. The cost of the event is $40 per person for reservations received through May 20 and $45 per person for reservations received May 21 or thereafter. The deadline for reservations is June 22. Reservations can be made online or at any branch of the Riverhills Bank.
Looking back on the first reunion, there was a tremendous amount of pride and loyalty displayed by our alums. The NRAA is anxiously awaiting to watch the pride grow as they congratulate the graduating class of 2018 and look forward to seeing graduates of all ages in the weeks to come.
