2017 HILIARD ALUMNI ALL-SCHOOL CONVENTION / REUNION
This year's all-school reunion is Friday, July 07 - Sunday, July, 09, 2017. The theme focuses on how we as individuals can be instruments of change. "The Difference We Make Begins With You". You Be The Change You Want To See in The World. How we behave with each other, what we say to each other...these simple things impact our world every moment of every day. We should all want the difference we make to be positive and not sit back and wait for change to come from others. The Convention kicks off with the annual picnic Friday morning to Friday afternoon at a choice of two locations, Duncan Park, or on the lawn of the Hilliard Alumni Association on Avenue C. There will be entertainment on Friday night at Bay City Service Center with a Soul Train Night of Motown Music and Talent Show Performances and Competitions. Cash Prizes will go to the three best performances. Dress in 70's Motown-Era Clothing on Friday evening, as Gift Certificates will be awarded to the male dressed most like the Motown era as well as the female dressed most like that era. Hosts for the Motown event will be Hilliard High School Alumni Class of 1967, celebrating their 50th year anniversary as graduates, along with the Hilliard Alumni Association as a whole.
Saturday morning, July 08, 2017 starts with a morning business meeting - WESTERN STYLE - at the Alumni Building.
