Graduates of Tyler Consolidated High School are invited to return to the fold for an evening of fun and reminiscing on March 30 as the second annual Alumni Basketball games have been announced for that date.
Last year more than 70 Consolidated graduates returned to their alma mater to participate in men's and women's alumni basketball games, as well as cheerleading and band activities. This year, organizers of the event hope to have even more participation.
"Everyone who showed up last year seemed to have a great time," said a spokesman. "For some it was the first time they had returned to the school since they graduated. We had promises that several of them were going to return this year, and we're hoping that even more come back and join us on the court."
