The Gorin Alumni was held at the Boyer Event Center on October 9th. The doors were opened at 4:30pm to allow the Gorin High School alumni an early chance to visit with old classmates and friends.
Due to not having the alumni in 2020 the honored classes of 1970 and 1971 were recognized and had their own decorated table. The 60-year classes of 1960-61- and 70-year classes of 1950-51 were also recognized.
The president, Elaine Forrester, welcomed everyone. Board member Bill Davis led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. Following the pledge, Allen Fitzgerald gave the blessing. Then the alumni enjoyed a wonderful meal catered by Steve’s Diner of Kahoka.
After the meal the business meeting was called to order by President Elaine Forrester. The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were reviewed and approved. The 2022 slate of officers are as follows: President Elaine Forrester, Vice-President Nancy Platz, Secretary Debra Heck, Treasurer Leon Buford, and board members are Hazel Buford, Bill Davis, and Connie Ward.
