TUCUMCARI - Tucumcari High School alumni of different eras will come together this weekend to reminisce about the past and make new memories at the annual Rattler Reunion.

This year's host is the Class of 1988, who have decided on the theme 'Rattlers Around the World,' said Sally Maestas, host class member.

Maestas said the theme will highlight the Rattler alumni's global travels throughout the years. She said there have been Rattler alumni who have lived and traveled to different places since leaving home.

"The alumni have spread, shared their Rattler spirit with the world," Maestas said.

This will be the 47th annual Rattler Reunion, with a few changes to the events, said Michelle Jaynes, Reunion Board.

Jaynes said this year there will only be 350 tickets sold for Friday and Saturday's banquet. She said an exact count is needed for the caterer to prepare enough food for the events.

"We know this is not how it has been in the past," Jaynes said. "This will help to streamline the banquets and ensure there is enough food for everyone."
