YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Alumni from all of the former schools in Youngstown are getting together this weekend for a purpose.

The “All-City Tailgate Party” was organized with a goal of getting members together for an alumni association for East High School.

The organizer, Ron King worked with the football team at East High and noticed the students had a lack of school spirit. He wants to form the organization to raise money for a football stadium for the school.

“We’re trying to pull them together under the idea that even though this is not your school per say, your children, your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren will probably at some point in time go through this school,” King said.

The event is from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Rayen Football stadium.
