The Clinton Courier
The “granddaddy of all class reunions,” Arrowstock, a Clinton High School multi-class reunion, will return on September 23 for the third consecutive year.
Arrowstock ’23 will be held from 5 until 10 p.m. on the brick streets of Olde Towne Clinton. In addition to featured entertainment The Chill, the event will include a Spirit Tent competition between CHS classes, and Class of 1973 alum Nash Nunnery will be available to sign his new book, Magnolia Gridiron Cathedrals.
Classes are encouraged to show their Arrow spirit by decorating a tent on the brick streets that night. There is no charge for putting up a tent, but classes are asked to contact event organizer Janna Dale to sign up. Classes will be judged based on their Arrow pride, and the winning tent will be recognized.
The Chill, a ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s cover band that plays everything from Motown to classic rock, includes Clinton High School alums David Cummings and Craig Tucker.
The reunion event is free, and food and drinks from brick street restaurants 303 Jefferson and The Bank by Pizza Shack will be available for purchase during the event.
Many CHS classes have also planned extra events during the weekend, including meeting to go to the CHS football game on Friday, lunchtime gatherings, and the like.
The Class of 1978 is having their 45-year reunion the weekend of ArrowStock ’23. On Friday night, there will be a potluck dinner, followed by a picnic lunch on Saturday.
The Class of 1983 has also planned events to celebrate their 40-year reunion, including dancing and food on Friday night, with music provided by FAZE4 at Clinton’s Hilton Garden Inn.
Saturday evening, both classes will join the Arrowstock multi-year reunion in Olde Towne Clinton. For information about the Class of 1978 reunion, contact Tommy Ashker at 901-626-7735. Contact Cindy Bishop Pitts at 601-715-3217 for information about the Class of 1983 reunion.
Last year’s Arrowstock event drew over 1,000 from CHS classes all the way back to the 1960s. In addition, the event raised over $1,000 for the Clinton High School Alumni Association’s annual scholarship program for deserving CHS seniors.
Sponsorships for the event, which has a theme of “A Night to Connect the Classes,” are still available.
