FRIDAY NIGHT BANQUET
The Alumni Committee has been busy discussing our plans for the 119th
Annual Portville Alumni Banquet which will be held on Friday, July 13th,
and Heritage Day which will be held on Saturday, July 14th.
This year, our venue will be the Event Center at Good Times of Olean. We
had our banquet there last year for the first time. If you have not
experienced Good Times yet, you will find it has a lot of activities in a very
large complex. They have bowling alleys, arcade games, mini-golf,
volleyball pits, the Hammerback Bar and Grill, The Point Restaurant for fine
dining, and the Snak Shak for quick, casual meals.
Due to the many comments that we received last year, the dinner will be
buffet-style instead of a sit-down dinner. There will be a selection of
beef, chicken, and pasta. The full menu can be found on our banquet page.
Our Master of Ceremonies will be Honest Bob Fairbanks, class of 1960.
Bob is a real entertainer with his anecdotes and jokes. We appreciate him
taking time out from his car racing schedule to be with us. We will
present the Hall of Fame awards during the business meeting. The HOF
Committee does a great job of acknowledging our community leaders.
For the past two years, the banquet has ended about nine p.m., allowing
alumni to get back to Portville for the American Legion street dance for the
rest of the evening.
Come on down to Portville for our annual Heritage Day festivities on
Saturday in Pioneer Memorial Park. There are always fun things to do
there, things to buy, people to see, food to eat, etc.
Portville Alumni will have a large tent to provide seating with shade if it's
sunny and protection from an occasional sprinkle of rain if it's not. We are
set up from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and usually located near the food
For the adventuresome types, Extreme Sportsman Preston Van Curen will
guide the Alumni Kayakers down the Allegheny River again this year. The
route is from Mill Grove bridge to the Steam Valley bridge launch site at
Linn Landing. Many thanks to Mr. Wimpy Swetland, who provides the river
access in Mill Grove.
We will gather at the bandstand (or gazebo, if you prefer) for our annual
alumni group photo. Here is the gang that showed up last year.

You will also find the reservation form for the Banquet and a registration
form for our Kayaking event. For a recap on last year's banquet and
