June 7-9, 2013
In addition to the traditional Alumni Weekend held at GLAA in October for alumni of all Michigan boarding academies, there is a special one for the alumni of Cedar Lake Academy that takes place in June.
For about a decade, GLAA has hosted the "Ye Olde" CLA Alumni Reunion for those who attended or graduated from Cedar Lake Academy 50 or more years ago. Alumni, Larry Pumford (CLA '45) birthed the idea for this special weekend. As we age, memories seem to increase in importance. Getting in touch with old friends that were a part of CLA memories makes for a very special weekend. Former school mates and spouses along with faculty gather from all over the country, usually the second weekend in June, to reminisce, bring each other up-to-date with what is happening in their lives, worship, eat and share in other ways with each other. Two classes are honored each year; the 60-year and the 50-year graduating classes. The former class is usually responsible for Friday night vespers. The 50-year class is in charge of presenting the Sabbath School and Church services. Other activities utilize the talents and skills of attendees that were in many cases cultivated and used while attending CLA.
