Clear Creek High School Alumni Association Reunion Planning Guide

      The Clear Creek High School Alumni Association each year holds the Annual CCHSAA
Picnic/Reunion that is open to all alumni and friends from all graduating years.  The Association also
supports each class in preparing for their individual class reunions. We encourage each class to
schedule their reunion over the same weekend as the Annual Reunion/Picnic. We invite each class to
attend the Picnic. Details on the Annual Reunion/Picnic are included on the 'Reunions Upcoming ' page
of this website.
      As each class makes the arrangements for their reunion, regardless of the dates, they can submit
the details to the Alumni Association and the information will be added to the 'Reunions Upcoming' page
of this web site. Reunion information can be emailed to

This page is intended to assist those alumni who are starting to plan a class reunion. Included are:

  • A  brochure listing dining and hotel information as well as attractions in Clear Creek County.

  • Several example notices that have been posted on this website by previous classes describing their reunions.
