The annual business meeting begins at 10 am in the EHS Auditorium, with a barbecue lunch following the meeting. The meal will be catered by McGowan’s Catering of San Angelo. The meal can be enjoyed in the cafeteria or at tables set up in the courtyard.

The Class of 1999 along with the Class of 1969 will participate in the annual “Ringing of the Bell” ceremony which will takes place on the Schleicher County courthouse square at 1:30 pm. Class photos will be taken at that time.

The Mias Amigas Club was organized 88 years ago by several women, all of them EHS graduates who met once a year to keep in touch with friends. After several years of reunions, they decided to invite men and women from other classes to join them.

Later, it was agreed to invite the class that had been out of school for 20 years to the reunions. And so it began! Being out of school for 50 years is an honor recognized each year.

EHS graduates from 20 years ago and beyond are invited to come with their friends and families to enjoy the festivities, see old friends, and perhaps make new ones! Former EHS teachers and coaches, along with current ones are also invited to re-connect with former students.

Hope to see you this weekend!
