Rare treat for OF alumni at annual homecoming
The Annual Orangefield Homecoming will be held Saturday, June 13, at the Orangefield Elementary Cafeteria from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
As a special treat this year, the Cormier museum, located next to the gymnasium and ball fields, will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., so it can be viewed before or after the reunion.
The museum was given to the school district earlier this year by the Cormier family. There is no charge to view it. At this time, the museum is only open on special occasions or by appointment. This is a rare opportunity for not only Orangefield Alumni, but anyone in the Golden Triangle Area to take a peek at this magnificent collection of yesteryear.
Built to look like the streets of downtown Orangefield during the oil boom days, each “shop” is a treasure trove of collectables covering every category imaginable.
From a wall of model cars and trucks, to a garage filled with full size antique cars, it is full of childhood memories. Antique toys, skates from the skating rink and a mechanical horse are just a few of the items Paul Cormier collected and cherished.
It is a jaw dropping exhibit and the only one of its kind in the area.
Memories are what the homecoming is all about. Bring your old annuals and pictures to share with friends you may not have seen in years.
The committee provides the meat, bring your favorite side dish to share. No reservation required.
