WYANDOTTE – The Seneca Indian School Alumni Association will host the 2019 Seneca Indian School Reunion at the Wyandotte Cultural Center located on the old Seneca Indian School campus. All alumni, former staff, friends and family are invited to attend.

Events begin 7 p.m., Friday, June 7 with a hotdog roast and horseshoe tournament at the old basketball courts. Hot dogs will be provided along with a bonfire. People are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and to “cut their own hotdog stick.”

The main meeting is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 8 inside the Wyandotte Cultural Center. A potluck lunch will begin at noon and will include door prizes, raffles and arts and crafts. Saturday concludes with the first ever Simon Bush Pool and Bowling Tournament at River Bend Casino Club 60 West from 5 p.m. to midnight. Winners receive a trophy and bragging rights.

A special collection of recently found photographs from Robert F. Kennedy’s visit to the Seneca Indian School in 1968 will be on display at the main meeting. Copies of other archived Seneca photos and memorabilia from the Oklahoma Historical Society and individual alumni photos will be on hand to share. Attendees can also video record their comments and memories of Seneca Indian School history if they wish to contribute to the school’s history.

Recognition awards will be given to the oldest alumni, alumni who traveled the farthest and to the decade that has the largest number of attendees. Special hotel room rates are available for attendees. Seneca T-shirts also will be available. One-year Seneca Indian School alumni memberships are only $10.
