You will be placed in your 1st and 2nd choice class till the class is full. You would then be placed in your 3rd choice class if class is not full. Class roosters will be generated in the order registration was received. So register early.
Lunch will be provided Wednesday – Friday, and dinner on Wednesday and Thursday evenings with social time after. Social time will include not only a time to visit but to dance, play games and share. We will have show and tell after dinner Thursday. Come share a story from your family’s past of how they celebrated their Wyandotte heritage, or maybe you have stories from family, of their time in Ohio to Kansas to Oklahoma. If you have any old pictures, artifacts or memorabilia from Wyandotte past, please bring to show and tell. It should be a fantastic evening.
