Union #1/Adams City High School Alumni Association History:  The reunion tradition originated at a backyard picnic in 1958 by a group of Union #1 High School chums: Gladyce (Wells) Henry, Harry and Evelyn (Cline) Coit - class of 1915, Dorothy (Smith) Hartley - class of 1920, and Freda (Farney) Gress - class of 1917.  Their first official reunion took place on May 22, 1960 at the Rose Hill Grange Hall with 44 attendees.  The all school reunion has continued to grow throughout the years as classes graduated from Adams City High School.  

Annual Luncheon:  Union #1 - Adams City High School Alumni Association hosts an annual luncheon the last Sunday of June. Special recognition is given to the  40-year, 50-year, 60-year, and 70-year classes. All attending  classmates are introduced by roll call.  Nostalgic memorabilia is displayed for your enjoyment.  This is a fun day and an excellent opportunity to reconnect with old friends and former classmates from Adams County School District 14.  Invitations are mailed in April to the 40-year or more classes.   

Memorabilia:  Please keep the Alumni Association and/or The Commerce City Historical Society in mind when you "spring clean".  Donations of school and community memorabilia are appreciated - photographs, scrapbooks, year books, autograph books, dance and other programs, newspaper clippings, souvenirs, class reunion memory books, school newspapers, uniforms, trophies, and other related items.  Copies are OK.  Your written memories are especially welcome.  

Association Board:  The Alumni Association Board is made up of schoolmates from many different classes working together to plan and produce the annual all school reunion.  The board meets four times a year between February and June to plan the details and produce the materials for the reunion event.
