IVHS Alumni Weekend is almost here!

Check out the change in venue

You know it is summertime when Illinois Valley High School Alumni Weekend pops up in everyone’s schedule. This year the IVHS Alumni weekend will be a little different. Although the postcard sent in the mail reads Friday – Sunday, the actual reunion dates are Thursday, July 4 through Saturday, July 6.
According to IVHS Alumni Board member Donna Tellyer, “We would like to emphasize the Reunion Weekend ‘All You Can Eat’ breakfast at the Senior Center at 520 E River St. along with the scholarship fundraiser silent auction. It is Saturday, July 6 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Adults $9, children under 12 will be $4.”
In the past there has been a breakfast at the Jubilee Park pavilion, so Tellyer wanted to make sure that all the alumni knew about the change.
You can view the information about planned events and the IVHS golf tournament on A-11, just remember to disregard the dates posted.
One event that is not in the ad is the third annual Soapbox Derby that will be held at noon Saturday, July 6 on the Schumacher Rd. hill close to the Taylor’s Sausage Processing Plant. This is a special occasion that you don’t want to miss. Valley residents of all ages build derby cars and race them down the hill. The event is a fundraiser for Main Street Cave Junction and is sponsored by MSCJ, Illinois Valley News and Trillium Bakery.
