Due to the Covid 19 pandemic the annual October 24th meeting and meal for friends and alumni of the former Norman School District will NOT be held. However, the building will be open for viewing from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Norman High School and Caddo Hills’ alumni and other visitors must follow the guidelines set up by our state officials – no temperature, masks in place, and stay 6 feet apart. Board members will sanitize objects and air regularly. You are required to sign in. Copies of the summary of the yearly expenses, payments, and donations and the minutes of the 2019 meeting will be available for alumni, and all of the rooms except the “library” will be open for viewing. The elevator will be available for those who need it, and guests may linger in the newly renovated auditorium and “math” room. No refreshments will be served, but a donation jar will be available, and dues may be paid. Please give generously as no fundraisers have been held since fall of 2019, the building has not been open for business, but bills still have to be paid.
If alumni will only be in town on a date other than Oct. 24th, feel free to call the president, Mary Beth Lysobey, at 870-223-2724 or email her at lysobeym@windstream.net or nhpp2014@windstream.net. Someone will meet you at the high school and give you a tour. The same safety procedures apply.
Thanks to the generosity of Wanda Lee Graves, the Lybrand family, Andy Buck, George Johnson, and Enoch and Darlene Pate, major renovations have taken place the past 12 months. As soon as the Covid pandemic allows, the auditorium will be available for meetings, entertainment, and educational programs.
