Annual Summer Potluck Picnic 2023
As always, the West High All-Class Alumni Potluck Picnic 2023 was a wonderful time! We had 53 people in attendance (twice as many as last year). It was held at the usual place: the Crossroads United Methodist Church, located at 1100 South Hague Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. A big thanks to Paul Pennell ’57 for helping secure this location once again.
We enjoyed tasty Sloppy Joes, cooked up by Eli Bowen ’74, and a variety of side dishes and desserts from those that attended. Our Alumni Association Board of Directors collected many door prizes and giveaways. Guests at the Potluck won specialty items made in Ohio, West High School Alumni merchandise, and many gift certificates donated by local businesses, including El Vaquero, Sparano’s Pizza, Chick Fil-A, Hooters, O’Charley’s, Roosters, and Ding Ho (donated by Brad Laver ‘75), to name a few.
We always give away prizes for the oldest and youngest classmates in attendance, and have prize drawings just for being there, so don’t miss your chance to take home a prize next year!
Quite a few alumni classes were represented this year. We had 3 alumni from the 1940’s, 16 from the 1950s, 3 from the 60s, 19 from the 70s, 3 from the 80s, 1 from 90s, 1 from the 2000’s, and 7 guests.
It is always an enjoyable time connecting with each other — meeting new alumni and catching up with our old West High friends. Those that attended should be sure to tell all of the alumni you know about the fun time you had so we can have an even larger turnout next year!
Thank you to all who came and a special thank you to all of the Board members that helped make this event a success. We wish you all a year of good health and peace, and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s West High All-Class Alumni Potluck Picnic!
Stay tuned for details for 2024!
