Mountain Lakes Alumni Weekend: The Tradition Continues

The Mountain Lakes Alumni Association is pleased to announce the 2017 Alumni Weekend schedule of events. Alumni Weekend—held over Homecoming weekend—has, over the years, become a can’t-miss event and this year will be no different. We have activities planned to be of interest to alumni and their family throughout the weekend, culminating with the annual Mountain Lakes Alumni / HERD Alumni pig roast, which will also be hosting eight MLHS class reunions in 2017. Please see the weekend itinerary below for more details.
