MLAA Alumni Weekend 2017: The Tradition Continues
The Mountain Lakes Alumni Association is pleased to announce the 2017 Alumni Weekend schedule of events. Alumni Weekend—held over homecoming weekend—is quickly becoming a can’t-miss event, and this year will be no different. We have activities planned to interest alumni and their family throughout, of course highlighted by the annual Mountain Lakes Alumni/ HERD Alumni pig roast, which will play host to 8 class reunions. Please see the weekend itinerary below.
Friday, October 20th
Homecoming Football Game
Come out and enjoy a Friday night football game under the lights at Wilkins Field! Meet up with fellow alumni and cheer on the Mountain Lakes HERD as the team seeks redemption for last season’s loss against Caldwell. Be sure to visit the MLAA tent where there will be giveaways, alumni registration, and 50/50 tickets available for purchase. A special ceremony honoring retired MLHS teachers, coaches, and administrators is scheduled for halftime. Game starts @ 7 p.m.
