Every year since 2005,on the weekend closest to the
17 and 18 of July, the CCS Alumni Association sponsors an
All-Classes Reunion for the "CCS Alumni and Friends" .
The 2016 Reunion will be held July 15 16 and 17, 2016.
The reunion is open
to anyone who graduated from, attended or taught at Cambridge
Central School at any time. You not only get a chance to see your
classmates but friends that were in classes before or after you.
The 2016 Reunion Weekend coincides with the Cambridge 150th
Anniversary. Many things have been planned for that event
including a parade, street dance and fireworks!!!! A
schedule of the weekend's events can be found
The weekend starts with the popular Orange and Black Golf
Scramble on Friday. Teams of 4 play for a variety of prizes, for
the fun of the game and the reunion of friends and classmates.
Mike Baratto, Class of 1962, is in charge of this event. You can
register for the Scramble
In the past years the Friday Night Meet and Greet has been in
various locations. It has been held in the little lot next to
the Train Depot and across the street from The Hotel. The Vapac
Front Yard and the Rice Mansion also have been the venue.
The 2010 get-together was held in the newly renovated
Freight Yard, which made for a great indoor facility for this
event. The old Presbyterian Brick Church has hosted us. In 2014,
we had a trivia night at the American legion. For 2015,
the Class of 1965 hosted The Lake Dance Revival which was a
Some classes have used Saturday morning for their
milestone reunions, (10, 15, 20,25...50, 60 years) The Class of
1958 had such a great time at their 50th Reunion Breakfast in
2008 that they have decided to make it an annual event.
Saturday afternoon, THE REUNION at the
American Legion Pole Barn. This large pavilion even kept us dry
when it rained on the gathering in 2007 and out of the sunshine on
the other years. Class pictures are taken early in the afternoon
by Tom McMorris, Class of 1970 and can be ordered from his web

lay claim to a table as a "home base" but time is spent with from all different classes. You will hear "Do you
remember when.....?" followed by lots of laughter, or "Oh my, it
has been years....!!!" Hugs, handshakes, pats on the back, more
laughter, some tears but all in all, a great time is enjoyed by
all. Appetizers and a meal are served and a bar is available.
There is a charge and a reservation has to be made if you eat.
You are welcome to drop by for the atmosphere, appetizers and
camaraderie, however we do ask for a $7 membership or "cover
charge". If there are extra
meal tickets available you are welcome to purchase them at the
gate also. The Reunion winds up 6 PM
The All-Classes Reunion ends with the Sunday Breakfast at the
American Legion. The Legion has gained a reputation, and rightly
so, for serving a great breakfast. The buffet has lots of choices
and plenty of it. The charge is minimal considering all there is
to eat and we do want reservations made in advance but will take walk-ins. The
Legion needs a general head count for the breakfast.
Although the Alumni Association encourages all the classes to
schedule their reunion on this weekend so we all can be together,
some classes find it more convenient to have to have it on
separate weekends. We try to help as much as we can with
publicizing and notifying the classmates involved through the web
site and newsletters.
