Organizers invite everyone to attend the 15th annual Green Creek School Reunion on Sunday, June 12, from 2 – 5 p.m. The former Green Creek School has a rich history, having operated continuously for 78 years, during which thousands of students passed through its doors. For the past 14 years, on the second Sunday in June, hundreds of those students have returned to their alma mater to renew old friendships and to relive the days of their youth.

For generations, the school was the center of activity for residents of the area. Some of these activities – cultural, social, recreational and education – are still being offered there because of the many people who have worked diligently to establish the Green Creek Community Center on the site.

All former students, teachers, their families and friends are encouraged to bring their old pictures, annuals and memories to share. Refreshments will be served.
