Oconee Alumni Association to hold first Meet & Greet Reception on afternoon of annual banquet on June 27

.

By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc

.

The Oconee County Alumni Association is endeavoring to broaden participation.   It includes all Oconee High Schools, now and from the past.   It includes all ages or graduating years.   Larry Weatherford, who graduated from Watkinsville OCHS in the late 1940’s, has devoted much time and leadership to the effort.

.

The Association has a broad membership on its Board of Directors that reaches over decades of graduates.   Since the Consolidated High Schools began hosting in 2007 (Class celebrating 50th), more Bogart graduates are attending.   Crowds are maxing out the seating area of the Civic Center.The Association is considering various options to deal with even larger crowds in the future.
