119th ANNUAL PORTVILLE ALUMNI BANQUET

Date:  Friday, July 13th, 2018
Start Time:  Social Hour at 6pm, Dinner Served at 7pm
Location:  TBD
Reservations: TBD dinner plus alumni dues

The annual banquet is a Portville tradition that is attended by
about 200 people each year, made up of alumni and their guests.  
The menu usually features a Beef and Bird Combination Platter,
with potato, salad, rolls, and dessert.  A gluten-free dinner or
vegetarian dinner is also a meal option.  A cash bar is also
available.  

Our business program follows dinner, when we present the alumni
scholarship, Bretzin's award, and Hall of Fame awards.  We
encourage someone from each honor year to speak on behalf of
their class during this time.  The event is a very nice affair and not
overly formal.
 Check out our banquet page for more information
on reservations, directions, and more.

AMERICAN LEGION STREET DANCE
Date:  Friday, July 13th, 2018

After the banquet, head back to Portville and stop in at the Legion

stars.  The Legion sponsors this event in their outdoor venue and
pavilion.  They have a lot more parking than ever and the bar
inside the Legion is open to patrons 21 and older.

Take a leisurely paddle down the Allegheny River on a warm July
day.  PCS has generously loaned us the use of their boats and
gear.  The route will start near the Millgrove bridge off Gleason
Hollow Road and follow the river to the new boat dock at Linn
Landing near the Steam Valley bridge.  Chris Linn donated the
land and the School/Town obtained a grant to make this project a
reality.  Bring your sunscreen and enjoy the beauty of Portville
from a totally different scenic perspective.  Parking is available at
both the start or the finish for your vehicle.  Youth under age 17
must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  30 Kayaks are
available (20 singles and 10 2-man kayaks) so register early -
First come, first served!

PORTVILLE HERITAGE DAY
Date:  Saturday, July 14th, 2018
Start Time:  10am to 5pm
Location:  Pioneer Park at Main Street and Maple Avenue

Description:  Downtown Portville is a buzz of activity all day
Saturday.  Our Annual Heritage Day coincides with Alumni
Weekend so that everyone can see everyone that is in town and
enjoy the activities from the park to the fire hall and further down
Main Street.  
One of the day's biggest highlights each year is the
Antique Car Show (see the 2017 flier here).  Ballots are given out
so you can vote for your favorites to win a trophy.  The Fire
Department has been sponsoring the chicken barbecue the past
few years and craft vendors set up their wares all around the
park.  There will be a petting zoo, games for the kids, and lots of
fun things to see and do.  The library has entertainment and
vendor booths too.  The Tyler Eastern Star will host their annual
pancake breakfast at the Masonic Temple from 7:30 to 10:00am.  
The Pfeiffer Cabin will be open - stop by their booth in the park for
more info.
If you would like to sponsor your own booth, we will post the 2018
vendor application as soon as it is available - meanwhile, for
2017, we used this
Vendor Application.  

PCS SCHOOL TOUR
Date:  Saturday, July 14th, 2018
Start Time:  
NEW TIME!!  2:30pm
Location:  Front entrance of High School by the Clock

Description:  If it has been a number of years since you have
attended PCS or a ball game or function at the school, you will be
impressed with the expansion and great condition of the school.  
Recent exterior changes include the bus circle parking area, a new
entrance to the elementary school, lights for night games and new
bleachers on the football field, an expanded bus garage, as well as
replacement windows for the whole school that resemble the
original 1950 style that many of us remember.  Inside the school,
you will fondly remember our same old auditorium with the
maroon velvet curtains but the library is no longer over the main
entrance, there are north and south gyms, there are media rooms
and robotics technology, and much, much more.  The tour takes
about an hour.  
Disclaimer:  Our tour is informative but it is not a forum for
discussing school budgets or policies. If you have questions or
comments about spending or school taxes, they should be
addressed to the Board of Education and not our volunteer docent.

ALUMNI TENT AT PIONEER PARK
Date:  Saturday, July 14th, 2018
Start Time: 10am to 5pm
Location:  Pioneer Park
  South Main Street at Maple Avenue, Portville

The Alumni Association will have a large tent in Pioneer Park with
tables and chairs where you can enjoy some shade, sit and eat
your lunch, or just take a few minutes to catch up with some old
friends and acquaintances.  You never know who you will run into
so stop by and say hello while you wander around the grounds.  
All are welcome whether you are an alumnus or not.

ALUMNI PHOTO IN THE BANDSTAND
Date:  Saturday, July 14th, 2018
Time:  
NEW TIME!!  1:30pm at the Bandstand
Location:  Pioneer Park

We thought it would be fun to have a group photo of alumni that
are in the park on Saturday.  We hope to include everyone that
can make it (especially anyone that was unable to attend the
banquet where photos are also taken).
