The Old School Reunion Festival is a Pomaria community festival started in 2012 as a fundraiser for the restoration of the old Pomaria School so it could serve as a community center for various public and private events.
The Old Pomaria School Reunion Committee consists of elected town officials as well as community members who are interested in restoring the school so the Town of Pomaria will have a community center available to anyone needing a large facility.
Anyone interested in the Old Pomaria School, especially students who attended the school, are invited to join the Old Pomaria School Reunion Committee to help with the festival and fundraisers.
