Due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic and a survey we took with the reunion classes involved, the Springfield Alumni Association has decided to cancel the 2021 Alumni Banquet and Parade, and not try to hold in August. We feel that the safety of our Alumnus is the most important thing.
We are almost to the light at the end of the tunnel of this situation, but we feel it is safer not to have the weekend in 2021 and hopefully be able to come back strong in 2022.
So, we are planning on a “NORMAL” Alumni Weekend 2022 on Father’s Day weekend, June 16th thru 19th, 2022
With no alumni weekends for 2 years the expenses will be higher in 2022. We will be setting up a PayPal link and urge you to pay your dues this year, if you can, by donating to the scholarships funds and the general fund, which we are in the process of setting up. We know times are tough for many but if you can please help us in any way it will help us to try to make 2022 as special as can be.
All the information will be on the alumni website and Facebook within the next few weeks as to how you can make your donations.
Please update your contact information with current mailing address and/or email addresses. We are going to try to email as many newsletters we can to help save on one of the huge expenses of printing and mailing.
We hope to see as many as possible in 2022 to celebrate in the our alumni spirit and pride! that we are all used to and proud of.

Alumni Day Parade Information:
Parade assembling areas are as follow:
o All classic vehicles will assemble on the right side of the PCM access road.
o All bands will assemble in parking lot next to Jake’s. (the Old Go-Go gas market place).
o All dignitaries’ vehicles will enter at the lower entrance (THIS IS YOUR ONLY ENTRANCE) by the walking path and assemble on the left side of the PCM Access road. They will park and await direction from the Alumni parade officials when they may line-up on the street.
o All floats will also enter at the lower entrance by the walking path and proceed behind the
PCM building until they arrive at the Artisan Surfaces grass/dirt parking lot. They will park
and wait for direction from the Alumni parade official when they may enter onto the street.
o Fire trucks will line-up on the street by 10:15am parallel with the classic vehicles.
o We ask that everyone is parked and ready to start by 10:00am and parade will start
Please note that vehicles that are NOT in the parade must be parked in the lower PCM
parking lot or arrangements must be made for drop-off at that spot. Sorry for the inconvenience, but parking is limited and the parked vehicles take up valuable room that is needs for floats
and dignitaries cars.
There will be numerous alumni officials there to help you get lined up. Please be patient and
have no fear everyone will be in the parade as scheduled. If there are any questions you can
contact Jean Patoine 802-591-7230. As you plan your float, please keep in mind the above
rules of Alumni participation.
