Please stop by the Alumni Home Days tent on Home Days weekend. We are located at the south entrance to Elmwood Park, near Zuber field. On display are the baskets which will be auctioned at the breakfast on Sunday. IHS class year books and memorabilia will be on display. It's a great place to mingle with IHS graduates too!
