The 2014 Wildcat Reunion will be held at the Orleans Hotel and Casino

on Saturday, September 13, 2014

Details will be mailed to alumni the first week of July, 2014

RSVP and pay ahead of time here

Once a year a dedicated committee works hard to put together the Wildcat Reunion. This reunion is historically held in early or mid-September. It was started in 1978 by alumni Bill "Wildcat Morris (class of 1945) . Hence 2008 was the 30th anniversary of the Wildcat Reunion. The reunions were held in Morris' backyard until they became too large. It was then held in various locations until Morris died in 1998. In 2001, alumni Bill Boyd and other members of the class of 1949 started it up again at the Stardust Hotel. It was moved to Sam's Town in 2002 and has been held there annually ever since. In 2012 it was again moved to The Orleans Hotel and Casino.
