Big Stone Gap Schools Reunion

The Big Stone Gap Schools Reunion is held each year, circumstances permitting, on the last full weekend of June for local high school alumni, attendees, and their guests. This includes those who attended any of the schools which became Union High School in Big Stone Gap, VA: Appalachia, Big Stone Gap, Bland, Central, East Stone Gap, and Powell Valley.

The 2022 Reunion will consist of:
A Saturday, June 25th, 6PM buffet dinner ($30) in the dining room of the Wise Inn (which recently underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation), catered by the Country Kitchen in Big Stone Gap, and
A Sunday, June 26th, 1PM buffet luncheon ($15) in Goodloe Hall at Mountain Empire Community College, catered by the Union HS Mama Bears. Local students who have been awarded scholarships to MECC from the Buccaneer and Lonesome Pine scholarship funds are introduced as part of the luncheon.

Invitations are mailed in early May to persons for whom the reunion organizers have a street address, and an online signup URL is sent to those who have provided email addresses. If you wish to attend but have not received an invitation, you may sign up online and pay by credit card (small fee) at:
