A week-long celebration of the Plymouth community and the schools that are a big part of it saw several “Old Timers” sports contests, community events that included volleyball in Centennial Park and a Family Game Night at Mancino’s brought together hundreds of Plymouth graduates and their families.
At week’s end the traditional “Big Red Opens” brought hundreds more together once again. The Ladies Open on Thursday raised money for the women’s athletic programs at Plymouth High School. Friday it was the mens turn with the 21st annual Art Thomas Big Red Open. Both events were hosted by the Plymouth Country Club.
Golfers from all over the country and literally all over the world made the trip back to Plymouth for the annual events.
A key member of the Plymouth state basketball champions of 1982 and the Trester Award winner for that year – Phil Wendel – made the trip back from Beirut, Lebanon for the men’s golf event. Wendel is a teacher at an American school in the country.
The PAA is a non-profit organization that works to connect and inform Plymouth graduates. All funds collected by the organization go to support extra and co-curricular programs at the Plymouth schools such as art, music, theatre and sports.
