Inspired by Jim Carroll, LHS Class of 1965, this event is to benefit Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation , which was held for the first time during LHS 2011 homecoming. There was $10 admission fee which included the homecoming parade and football game, as well as a video stroll down memory lane and homecoming dance with music of each decade starting with the 1930's.

The third annual Alumni Reunion is scheduled for September 27, 2013 at which time the new Bank of New Hampshire Athletic Stadium and Jim Fitzgerald Field, sponsored by LHS Alumni will be officially dedicated.
