Athol Reunion

For many years there has been an Athol High School Reunion every two years on Memorial Day Sunday. The last graduating class from Athol High School was 1955, so those graduates who are still alive are 85 or older.

A group of Athol Grade School graduates are trying to keep this biennial event happening and are reaching out to anyone with Athol ties to come greet others and share memories of the Community Hall. They are planning an Athol KS Homecoming Open House at the Community Hall on Sunday, May 28, 2023 from 2-4PM. A special time of sharing will begin at 3:00 PM. Refreshments will be served.

In 2025, the Community Hall will be 100 years old so let's keep meeting together until 2025 for sure. Please consider this your invitation to greet friends and remember good times in the hall. There is a longer story in this week’s Pioneer about the event. For questions contact Dianna Rice 785-476-8083 or Donna Johnson 785-476-2691.
