The upcoming 2022 Homecoming Weekend (June 24 - 26) promises to be one of the biggest events ever held. The last Homecoming Weekend was in 2019 and many Class Reunions were postponed from 2020 and 2021 until this June. At least ten class reunions will be held over the big weekend ('57, '60, '62, '65, '66, '67, '70, '71, '72 and '77) and there details can be viewed at http://fairhavenalumni.org/reu...
The weekend will kick off on Friday evening, June 24th at 5:00 PM at Fairhaven High School with the raising of the Big Flag by the Classes of 1970, 1971 and 1972. Normally this honor is bestowed on the class having their 50th year reunion, but since the Classes of '70 and '71 had their reunions postponed until this year, they are joining with the Class of '72 to share the honor of carrying the Big Flag out from Room 7 to the flagpole and raising it. There will also be an Open House within the high school for anyone who wants to wander the halls and reminisce with old friends and take a few photos.
On Saturday, June 25th the Homecoming Fair will be held in the town center from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm with a wide assortment of craft and food booths available. Guided tours of FHS led by FHS Alumni President Bob Foster '66 will start at 10:00 am and again at 12:00 noon on Saturday as well. For details on these tours as well as other tour dates at Fairhaven High School please go to this link: http://fairhavenalumni.org/new... Tours have not been allowed since 2019, so we're expecting some large numbers, especially with all the reunion attendees in town for the weekend.
The All-Class Breakfast Buffet catered by the Courtyard Restaurant will be held on Sunday, June 26th from 8:30 - 10:00 am in the FHS Cafeteria. The Classes of '70, '71 and '72 are co-hosting this event, but all are welcome and tickets for the full buffet are $12 and a limited number are available at the Alumni Booth in front of the Millicent Library at the Fair on Saturday.
On Sunday, June 26th following the Breakfast at 10:30 there will be a dedication ceremony in Mr. Mel Entin's old Biology classroom on the third floor that all are invited to attend. Steve Entin '65 will be present to unveil a plaque dedicating the room to his father.
The weekend will wrap up on Sunday evening at 6:00 PM with the FHS Hall of Fame Banquet and the Induction Ceremony of the Class of 2020 which has been postponed for two years. Tickets for the Banquet are $35 and can be reserved by emailing HOF member Bob Foster at: RWFoster22@gmail.com
