Reunion 2006 a success

Mardi Gras masksIt took an entire year to plan but in just three short days, Reunion 2006—and hundreds of visitors—came and went.

Reunion 2006 had a total participation of more than 750 alumni and guests—50 percent higher than last year’s event. There were 59 classes represented at this year’s reunion, from the class of 1936 to the class of 2007. Highest class participation honors go to Class of 1956 with 16 percent.

Distance didn’t seem to be a problem for Oswego alumni, who came from 26 states including Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey, while farthest-distance-traveled honors go to 12 alumni from California.

Eleven groups held official mini-reunions during Reunion Weekend. The newest Reunion feature, a mini Taste of Oswego—Mardi Gras style—featured favorite foods from Canale’s Restaurant, Oswego Sub Shop and Rudy’s on Saturday evening.
