This year when Wauneta High School and Wauneta-Palisade High School Alumni gathered for the annual alumni banquet they found no shortage of things to do around town.

The Alumni Committee, Chamber and School joined forces to provide a full day of entertainment where alums were provided several ways to catch up and get reacquainted with the town and school.

The Chamber kicked off Saturday’s festivities with a complementary “Welcome Home” luncheon at the American Legion. Approximately 50 alumni members attended the lunch.

Next up, the Chamber sponsored tours of the Chateau Theatre, allowing those who live away from Wauneta the chance to see upgrades made at the theatre. Champa group prepared a slideshow of the classes for the tour as well. Approximately 30 took advantage of the tour.

Before the banquet, the school provided tours of the Wauneta Attendance Center.

Approximately 150 attended the evening banquet, organized by Casey Haarberg of the class of 1998 and the Alumni Committee.

Ashley Fortkamp served as Master of Ceremonies. Recent graduate, Logan Bischoff, welcomed alumni as the 2013 class president.

Stacey Yost Freouf provided the invocation.

Entertainment at the banquet was provided by the Wauneta-Palisade speech team’s girls OID team including Ellie Lee, Cameo Rector, Leiauna Alberts, Nicole Strand and Christi Christner.

Catering for the meal was provided by L&L Catering.
