|This is the web site of the former Edwards Central School of Edwards,
New York. All students attending public school in the town of
Edwards between the Class of 1949 and the Class of 1986 were graduates
of ECS. This web site, however, includes classes that were
graduated from the old Edwards High School, dating back to 1914.
Banquet Reservation Form Available
Get ready - the annual ECS Alumni Banquet will be held on the
evening of May 25, 2013 at Silas Wainwright VFW Post
6338, Gouverneur NY 13642 . Class years of '43, '53,
'63, '73 and '83 will be honored with emphasis on '63 and '83.
Come enjoy an evening with old friends catching up on the
events of the last year or sharing the stories of your lives
with those you have not seen in a long time. All who
attended ECS but did not graduate for whatever reason are
welcome too. We all shared laughter, joy and tears
on the fields and courts, in the classroom and our community.
Festivities will start at 5:30 pm with a cash bar. At 6
a buffet will be served: Italian marinated chicken, baked ham,
escalloped potatoes, pasta salad, fresh vegetable tray, coffee
and tea and dessert (provided by volunteers). The cost of the
meal is $16.00 per person which includes a donation to the ECS
Alumni Association. We would like everyone to register
in advance by clicking here to download the reservation form
which can then be mailed in.
If you can donate an item for the silent auction, something
unique to your area, like maple syrup or Saratoga Sweets,
please do. All proceeds go to the Alumni Association.
Would you contact your classmates to get the names of those
who have passed on and elect one of you to give that
information at the banquet?
Can you volunteer to work on the banquet either beforehand or
on the day of? I am emailing and writing letters to all
for whom I have an address. If you know anyone who would
like to help, please have them contact me. Email me
through this website or write me at 19 Ashdown Rd Apt C,
Ballston Lake NY 12019-2343. Thanks in advance for
any suggestions or assistance that you can give.
