The 20th Annual Beaver Roundup was held in the Falls City Community Hall on August 3, 2013, with well over 400 former students and guests in attendance during the program. Registration and social hour began around 4 o’clock, and was followed with supper consisting of barbeque and sausage and all the trimmings. J & M Pro Sound provided the background music during the meal as well as dance music at night.
The honor classes of 1953, 1958, 1963, 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, and 2003 were recognized during the program that featured music and trivia from high school days. Janis Rotter, class of 1967, was the MC for the program. The Falls City High School Dance Team, Cheerleaders, Color Guard, and Mascot provided entertainment, and raised the spirit of the crowd. Mr. Tylor Chaplin, Superintendent of Falls City ISD, spoke briefly, and he recognized the newly formed Falls City Education Foundation.
