Nocona readies its triennial

The Nocona High School Ex-Students Association is busy planning the 2016 Triennial Homecoming following a Jan. 13 meeting.

Honor classes for this year’s celebration will be 1964, 1965 and 1966. Nocona will celebrate with the traditional parade, barbecue lunch , Hall of Honor induction and many other festivities.

The committee is still looking for NHS Hall of Honor nominees. Hobie Meekins, committee member, said they hope to have these chosen by May. Anyone nominations should be sent to 105 E. Hwy 82 in Nocona.

A date and a theme for this year’s event will be chosen after the committee receives the football schedule in late February or early March. They are hoping to set the date for a weekend in September.

Anyone who is interested in being a part of the planning is invited to the next meeting at 7 p.m. on March 8 at Meekins home, located at 107 Monroe St. in Nocona.

The committee will in touch with at least one person from every graduating class. These individuals will contact the other members of their class to make sure everyone is invited to the upcoming event.

“We invite around 3,000 people,” said Meekins. “And every year we graduate 50 to 60 kids so we are adding to this huge group and celebration.”
