Annual Old Settlers' Days Celebration

The community of Highmore holds Old Settlers' Days annually the third weekend in June. It is set for June 17-18-19, 2022.

 

The HHS All-school reunion committee was hoping to have the reunion this summer, 2022, but they have decided to wait at least another year or until 2025 to have another reunion. They have a list of who paid last year and your money will be held on file for the next reunion. You may contact the committee if you have another preference.

 

Old Settlers' Weekend is a community effort, put on by volunteers from a variety of groups, organizations and businesses. Each year, we seek individuals to assist us with the tasks it takes to make Old Settlers' Weekend a great experience for all. This takes many amazing volunteers. Even an hour is enough. If you have any questions or want to volunteer, please send us a message on Facebook.

The community of Highmore comes together each year to offer a variety of different events. Our goal is to make Old Settlers' Weekend fun for the whole family.
