January 2021 Update:
In order to plan the BEST All-Class reunion, the committee has made the difficult decision to hold off the event until the 3rd weekend of July 2022. There are still too many unknowns for this upcoming summer such as the timing of vaccines for the general population along with not knowing when restrictions on large gatherings and travel will be lifted. A lot of planning and volunteer participation is required for an event this large and the committee wants to make sure it is as successful and safe as possible for everyone. Thank you for your understanding and we will all be ready to party in 2022!!

Statement From Ashland Chamber of Commerce: After a lengthy discussion with the Ashland County Health Department & the City of Ashland, the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce has decided to cancel the 4th of July Parade and the Ashland Bay Days Festival. In addition, the Ashland High School Reunion committee decided to postpone the All-School reunion to 2021. The COVID 19 pandemic has put limitations on large groups gathering which will hinder our outdoor festivals in June and July. Other factors include consumer fear to gather in large groups, marketing expenses that cannot be recovered if the event is eventually cancelled, and the ability to recruit volunteers because of safety concerns. The safety of our sponsors, spectators, volunteers, and staff is priority and we feel this is the best outcome for 4th of July parade and the Ashland Bay Days Festival. Good news!! Thanks to an anonymous donor, the 4th of July fireworks will go on!! We will also be looking at the fire run and hope to have a car run attached to the fire run for those who are interested in participating. This would take place before the fireworks at the usual time. The Chamber is considering the possibility of a Labor Day Parade this year. We are as heartbroken about these events as you folks are, but we need to make sure we are able to coordinate safe events. Thank you for your understanding.

Congrats to Kasey Jaskowiak for designing an awesome t-shirt for our first ever Ashland All-Class Reunion. We decided to keep things simple, easy and affordable so we are only having 2 choices. The Ashland Historical Museum’s online store will be handling the orders. The t-shirt sales will be a fundraiser for the museum and they will be keeping 100% of the profits. You will be placing your order and paying for your order and then picking up your shirts either at the Bohemian Hall on Thursday July 16 or anytime during the reunion at the Ashland Chamber tent at Bay Days. Once the online store has our tees available, we will let everyone know. Can’t wait to see everyone!

Plans for the reunion are taking shape and the website is almost ready to launch.

Just a heads up…
Classes are starting to secure places to hold their own gatherings on either Thurs or Fri nights of the All-Class Reunion weekend. Remember…each class can decide whether or not they will hold their own gathering. Classes can combine with other classes as well and meet up at the same places. There are plenty of parks and bars to use. Some classes are even going to meet at local classmates homes. Once the website is up and running, we will have a list of where and when each class is meeting. You might not like your class and want to hang with others 🤷🏼♀️😂
