Alumni Relations

The EFHS Alumni Association is comprised of all of the graduates of Enosburg Falls High School. The High School has been sending graduates into the world since 1891 and boasts a diverse, accomplished membership that, while it is dispersed across the country and around the world; is heavily represented in the Franklin County area. The association supports four primary activities.

1.     The Alumni Banquet that is celebrated on Saturday evening on the last full weekend of the month of June at the Enosburg Opera House.

2.     The Alumni Golf Tournament, currently being held at Enosburg Falls Country Club at noon on the Friday preceding the Banquet.

3.     The Alumni Directory, the seventh edition published in June 2016. It can be purchased by mail or at Wood Meadow Market on Main Street in Enosburg. This edition has an addition 12 classes of graduates and numerous corrections and updates to the 2004 edition. A special thank you is extended to Marcia Blanco, the Digital Media Productions teacher at the Cold Hollow Career Center for her tireless efforts in arranging this edition of the directory for printing by Reprographics.

4.     The EFHS Alumni Scholarship is awarded annually to two graduating seniors. This activity received a welcome impetus from Darlene Hill Worth from the Class of '64. Information on this year's fundraising efforts are provided below.

2019 Weekend

The 2019 EFHS Alumni Banquet was celebrated on Saturday, June 29, 2019. The group in attendance featured an outstanding turnout from our 50th anniversary Class of ’69 as well as healthy number from the Classes of ’64, '59 and '54. Marian Carpenter Wetherbee was honored as the senior Alumni in attendance representing the Class of 1943. Marian earned a donation to the Enosburg Food Shelf on behalf of her class. The “Miles to Go Before I Sleep” award for the alumni who traveled the greatest distance to attend the Banquet was shared by Larry Pudvah  from the Class of '59 and James Lawyer from the Class of '64. Larry traveled all the way from Tucson, Arizona while James traveled from Newburg, Oregon. 

Classes in attendance included 1981, 1979, 1972, 1971, 1969, 1966, 1964, 1959, 1957, 1954, 1949, and 1943.

 

Friday’s Alumni Golf Tournament featured a record turnout of 31 teams totaling 133 golfers. The tournament raised $3,244.50 for the EFHS Annual Scholarship Fund on an absolutely splendid day for being on an Enosburg Falls Golf Course that was in excellent condition. 

 

The Class of '64 took the initiative for an impromptu Alumni Scholarship Fund collection during this year's Banquet. Their generosity resulted in the following class contributions in support of one scholarship fund:

  • Class of '57 - $50
  • Class of '64 - $325
  • Class of '69 - $320
