Alumni get back to roots at annual banquet PDF Print E-mail

Alumni of Chase County High School were back in large numbers last weekend for the annual banquet and weekend of events.
Alumni Association President Marlon Kunnemann said 265 attended the Saturday night banquet after the honor classes ending in “3” had class pictures taken. An earlier afternoon tour of Imperial was also provided.
More than the 265 likely attended, however, as others gathered with their classes later in the evening after the formal festivities concluded.
Along with the honor classes, Kunnemann also gave special recognition at the banquet to military personnel and veterans who attended.
That’s always a special part of the banquet program, he said, since it’s always held Memorial Day Weekend.
“The military—that’s what the weekend is all about,” he said.
Earlier in the afternoon, alumni had the chance to take a community tour, hosted by the Imperial Community Foundation Fund.
Lori Pankonin, member of the Foundation’s advisory committee and a 1977 Chase County graduate, emceed the tour, which was taken by 26 alumni and guests.
She said the progress of the community was highlighted, “confirming that Imperial continues to be a growing community.”
After the banquet, the classes gathered at the Imperial Eagles Club for a dance.
Above at right is the list of alumni and former teachers read during the necrology.
