     The Tully Alumni Association was organized in 1897 with the intent to gather annually and to maintain a Directory. The first Alumni Banquet was held in 1898 at the Hotel Slayton. Up until the 1940's the annual banquet was held at various restaurants or civic club locations in the area. Then until the late 1970's the event was held at the High School. There was about a 10 year period when there was no annual event. In the 1990's, a 1937 Alumnus, Nellie Gordon, who was also a retired school secretary at Tully, got together with a few others and re-organized the annual get-together. The directory continues to be updated and printed annually and the most recent edition (2018) is available for purchase at our online store (click here to go to store).
