It’s almost time for the Port Clinton High School Alumni Weekend on Sept. 24-26, which is sponsored by the Port Clinton High School Alumni Association. Join fellow PCHS alumni and retired staff as they “Rally, Reconnect and Rediscover!”
There are many events planned for the special weekend celebration, which only takes place every three years.
The Alumni Band Night is Friday, Sept. 24 and registration is required at www.pccsd.net under the Alumni Link. At 7 p.m. it’s Time to Rally! at the kick-off of the Redskins vs. Edison football game at True-Lay Stadium.

Saturday, Sept. 25 is Port Clinton Day. At 10 a.m. rediscover Port Clinton High School. Come visit and rediscover what’s happening in 2021. This isn’t the PCHS you remember, but it will make every alumnus proud.
There will be cafeteria treats — remember those peanut butter bars and square pizzas? Bite-sized tasting provided while supplies last.
Just added has been a tour the new Port Clinton Athletic Boosters Field House from 11 a.m. until noon, with new Wrestling Coach Adam Hicks. Alumni wrestlers will want to stop by and say hello to Coach Tom Fisher, who will also be in attendance.

On Saturday, explore the shops, dining and all downtown has to offer. Take a walk to the Port Clinton Lighthouse and take an alumni selfie at the Lake Erie Love sign. This is the time to reconnect, relax, socialize, dine and catch up with classmates and friends.

At 7 p.m. all PCHS alumni will gather by the stage at Meals on Madison to rally and mingle with a live band. Before Saturday night is over sing the fight song and alma mater.
Sunday, Sept. 26 is Catawba Day. There is so much to see and do on Catawba that it’s a perfect time to reconnect with friends and family. PCHS Alumni Day at Catawba Museum is 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Catawba Island Historical Society members are opening Union Chapel just for PCHS alumni.
Theo Dunham, PCHS alumnus, will be on hand to record alumni video memories for the museum archives. Do you have Catawba memories of Gem Beach, Enchanted Lake Forest, Catawba School or other Catawba favorites? Come and see all the museum has to offer and share your Catawba memories.
From noon-3 p.m. on Sunday enjoy the beauty of Twin Oast, owned by PCHS Alumni. The beautiful grounds and facility located in the center of Catawba is the perfect setting to catch up with classmates and friends.
Various seating areas are available or bring your own lawn chairs. A football game may be on the big screen on the lawn. See more at www.twinoast.com.
Then it’s farewell until the next PCHS Alumni Weekend in 2024!
