located at 800R East State Street in Olean, NY. Located near the
intersection of East State and Front Street, it will be on the right coming
toward Portville and on the left coming from Portville. Look for their big
sign at the entrance.
The dinner this year will be buffet-style and feature John Wayne steak,
Chicken Parmesan, Pasta with Marinara, Garlic Potatoes, Chef's Choice of
vegetable, fruit, lettuce salad, rolls and desserts. We are offering a
vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free combination option in a vegetable
stir-fry served over basmati rice. The price per person for the buffet or
special meal will be determined next spring. All alumni are expected to
pay alumni dues which covers the cost of the invitations and mailing.
Your non-alumni guests do not pay dues.
In the April-May time frame, we will be mailing an invitation to everyone
in the honor years for whom we have a current address. If you are not
in an honor year, or have not received an invitation by the end of May,
our 2019 reservation form will be posted here so that you can print and
mail it with payment to PO Box 516, Portville, NY 14770. We would
appreciate receiving your reservation by June 28th, 2019.
This year we are extending our registration from 5:30 to 7:00pm. After
check-in, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be available at the
cash bar. Dinner will be served promptly at 7:00PM, followed by a short
During the business meeting, the Alumni Scholarship will be awarded to
a graduating senior student. Please note: Starting with our 2018
AlumniScholarship, PCS Seniors no longer have to have a parent that is a
Portville alumnus. The scholarship is open to all PCS Graduating Seniors
who would like to apply.
Other awards include the Alumni Junior Recipient and the Charles
Bretzin Memorial Award. We also pay tribute to classmates that have
passed away since last year's banquet - In Memoriam - and vote on the
election of officers for the upcoming year.
Members of the honor year classes are invited to speak briefly on
behalf of their class and awards will be presented by the Hall of Fame
committee to their recipients for outstanding contributions to our
Members and their guests will be seated according to their classes. The
banquet center is spacious so any special seating arrangements can be
accommodated. Parking and restroom facilities are always a factor when
choosing the location for the banquet for the comfort of our guests.
Class photographs will be taken again this year by Coni Coletti and
Shane Lord, photographers from "On Location Photography". Please
bring cash to the banquet and your photo order will be mailed directly to
you. Pricing for 2019 will be posted prior to the banquet night. Coni
and Shane can be contacted directly at (716) 372-8029 and check out
their OLP On Location Photography Facebook group here.
Alumni Contact Information
Keeping the database updated with contact information is always a
challenge so we appreciate the efforts of the class coordinators who are
our primary source of new address information.
We realize that not everyone uses a computer, especially some of our
older alumni. We will continue to use the traditional postal service of
mailing our reservation forms when this is the only delivery method
available. However, in an effort to reduce administrative costs of the
Association, we prefer to communicate with our alumni electronically
when possible. This includes email, Facebook, and other social media.
If you have any updates to your mailing address, email address, or other
contact information, please fill out our CONTACT US form and submit it.
Also if you are aware of any alumni obituary that may not have appeared
in our local paper, you can use our contact form to inform our historian
so that they will be honored at the banquet's In Memoriam.
If your questions are not answered by the information on this site, feel
free to send us a note and we will contact you directly.
