From the Facebook page for Alvarado, we obtained this year’s schedule of events.

When the reunion was founded, stock certificates were issued. Here’s the stock issued to our John James.

Each year those who attend the Reunion receive a Commemorative Ribbon. Over the years these have come to be valued collector’s items.
