How far has the organization come?
DHS Friends is completing its fourteenth year.
During this period the organization has grown into a
group of Dunn High School alumni, faculty, and staff,
which, through financial contributions, is making a
difference in the lives of students who have family ties
to Dunn High School. In fourteen years, DHS Friends
has given $35,520 in student aid and $127,000 in
scholarships. To insure scholarships will be given in
memory of Dunn High School for many years to
come, we also created three endowed scholarships
with the NC Community Foundation. These
endowments have a current value of $196,383. With
your help as a member, DHS Friends will become
even stronger, and the memory and legacy of Dunn
High School will live on forever.

2015 DHS Friends Reunion
Honoring the Classes of
1935, 1945, 1955, 1965, 1975, and 1985
The 2015 DHS Friends Reunion will be
April 25, 2015, at Chicora Country Club, 495
Chicora Club Drive, Dunn. DJ Joey Warren
(www.djjoeywarren.com) will play a variety of
music that appeals to all Classes beginning at 9:00
PM. Chicora will provide indoor, as well as
outdoor, covered seating, offering everyone the
opportunity to enjoy music and dancing, or to
have a quiet conversation with old friends.
The doors will open at 6:30 PM for renewing
old friendships, socializing, and dancing, with
heavy hors d’oeuvres being served. The evening
will conclude at midnight. Chicora has all ABC
permits and is a smoke-free environment.
You must be a 2015 member of DHS Friends
to attend the reunion. Each member is allowed to
bring one guest. The cost for the reunion is $25.00
for each member and $25.00 for each guest.
The DHS Friends Board challenges each DHS
Class to increase DHSF membership and reunion
attendance. The Class that has the most DHSF
members at the time of the 2015 reunion, and the
Class with the most members attending the 2015
reunion, will receive special recognition.
We look forward to seeing all
Dunn High Alumni and friends at
the 2015 reunion. Come early and
stay late!
2015 Honor Classes
DHS Friends will honor the Dunn High School
Classes of 1935, 1945, 1955, 1965, 1975, and
1985 in a special recognition program during our
2015 reunion. We hope all DHS Friends
members will plan to attend the 2015 reunion,
but we especially invite the members of these
honor classes to attend this year’s reunion and
be recognized.
