Organizers of a Saturday, Sept. 10 homecoming for Watertown High School are calling on alumni and friends of the school to help put together a new display of all graduating class pictures.
Each graduating class had a composite photo taken with all members of the class included. Organizers have some of the older pictures from the 1930s, 40s and 50s but do not have a complete collection of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Pictures of the classes after 2000 have been saved by the high school and will be used for the display.
"We would like to borrow your class picture, have it copied for the display and return it to you," organizers said. "The Watertown office of Wilson Bank & Trust has graciously offered to act as a drop-off point for the pictures. We would like to have as many pictures as possible for the homecoming event. However, if you would like, you may bring your picture to the event, remembering the picture will be returned to you."
Bricks in the Purple Tiger Passage will also be on display at the homecoming event. Brick sales continue, and there is one panel of 72 bricks still available on the first floor, organizers noted. A committee member will be available for brick sales on Sept. 10.
The Sept. 10 homecoming event will be held at 1 p.m. with a brief program scheduled for 2 p.m. The graduating picture project is funded by Historic Watertown. A display unit has been purchased, and the copy expense will also be covered by the club.
