The Granada Alumni Reception and Banquet will be held at the Complex with a lot of memories shared of the flood of 1965, as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the devastation that struck cities in Prowers County.  An open air dance at the park will finish out the day’s activities from 8pm to 11pm.
