Saturday, Oct. 12 is shaping up to be a historic day in Tryon.

Former students, faculty and staff from all schools located in Tryon through the years, as well as the current students, faculty and staff from Tryon Elementary School are set to gather at Harmon Field from 2-9 p.m.

Memories will be shared, old friendships will be rekindled and those who are no longer with us will be remembered all in a family-friendly, alcohol-free gathering.

Beginning at 8 a.m. on that Saturday, the log cabin at Harmon Field will be staffed by committee members and volunteers available to offer assistance, provide name tags, gather contact information and accept donations. Pastries, fruit and beverages will be provided at the cabin as well from 8-11 a.m.

From 10 a.m. until noon, the Tryon Elementary School’s doors will be open for those who would like to remember the past while admiring the present.

Planning for the future is an option as well: pavers for the new courtyard are being sold to raise funds for improvement. School staff will be on hand to provide assistance or answer questions if needed.

Tryon merchants, many of whom attended Tryon schools themselves, will display old photos in their shop windows. A stroll through town will allow everyone a chance to visit with business owners and provide entertainment while trying to remember what was located in each storefront through the years.
