Welcome to the official website for
Central Dauphin High School Alumni!
This is the ONLY site connected to the CDHS Alumni Association.

We also have a Facebook page - "Central Dauphin HS Alumni Association"

The General Meeting scheduled for Thursday, Sept 23rd was postponed until Thursday, October 28th, venue TBD at a later date.
The updated CDHS Alumni Directory is officially in process!  We will be working with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), the company who bought out Harris Connect when we were in the middle of doing the 2016 edition of the directory.
PCI will begin their outreach to our alumni via postcards and emails on October 1st, and eventually follow-up phone calls if people don’t respond to the cards and emails.
If you don't want to have your information published in the directory, you have that option, but we are hoping to collect current contact info for our internal records.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Class of 71 Reunion
Anyone concerned about social distancing should feel very good about the following:
We have changed ballrooms inside the Sheraton Hotel. We have moved into a room that can handle up to 120 people inside, but the big news is, this room has its own 30’ X 60’ covered patio. And thanks to the generous donation of classmates Sandy Miller and Cindy Wire, we will have three outdoor heaters so that no matter the temperature, we will be able to go both inside and out comfortably.
If you have not made your reservations, please do it now. We have over 80 confirmed and are hoping to reach 100. Just log onto The full schedule of events can be seen in our prior post.
The 50th reunion WILL be held the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd. Our original criteria for postponing would be if masks were required or any other government mandates. Since there are no mandates and the vast majority of our age group is vaccinated, we will hold the reunion as scheduled. We will have masks and hand sanitizer available for those who need or want it.
All details are listed below, including an update should the football game with East be cancelled.
