OLEAN — Renewing old friendships, remembering favorite teachers and classes, lots of laughter — and, “Do you remember when?” — will be part of the 135th Olean High School Reunion weekend June 15-16.
On Friday, June 15, alumni will gather at Hickey Dining Hall at St. Bonaventure University. A social hour with a cash bar will begin at 5 p.m. followed by a buffet dinner and reunion program at 6 p.m. The reunion party, featuring Freddy & the Jets, is 8 p.m. to midnight. Cost is $35 per person.
