Crossville Alumni Update
School starts in a couple weeks and Labor Day is just around the corner.
Labor Day will include Grayville Days, with details of that celebration to be forthcoming in the near future.
And while Crossville normally observes the Labor Day weekend quietly, this year will be a little different, as the Crossville Alumni Association will be hosting the annual alumni banquet and celebration Saturday, Sept. 4th.
Denise Burnett of the Alumni board reported alumni invitations have been mailed. She urged everyone to return their invitations and fees as soon as possible. Alumni members were reminded they can now bring a guest. If you did not receive an invitation then you may personal message Denise. If you need to update your address, mail that information to Crossville Alumni P.O. Box 152, Crossville, Il 62827. That is the same address for an RSVP to the banquet.
Activities this year will include the annual Cox wiener roast Saturday afternoon and alumni church services Sunday morning at the Crossville Methodist Church.
The banquet is normally held Memorial Day weekend but due to Covid it was cancelled in 2020 and a decision was made earlier this year to move the banquet to the Labor Day weekend.
The Class of 1970, who had planned on observing their 50th graduation anniversary will be celebrating this year in the English room following the banquet.
It is expected to return to the May dates in 2022
