Old Timers Reunion
Aug 2-4 2024
About Old Timers
Originally, Old Timers Weekend began as a way for graduates of Covington's historically African American high school, Lincoln William Grant High School, to reunite and celebrate their achievements through a softball game, no with its 36th year, the event this year plans to welcomed close to 2,000 people over the three-day event jam-packed with sports tournaments, information booths and community resource fair.
The park where the annual event was held is named after Dr. James Randolph, an African American physician and community leader. He was the first African American physician to be on the staff of St. Elizabeth Hospital in Covington and the first to be a member of the Campbell-Kenton Medical Society. A large percentage of African American children born in Covington between 1922 and 1958 were delivered by Dr. Randolph.
An active member of St. James A.M.E. Church in Covington, he also served as President of the Kentucky A.M.E. Organization of Lay Members. In 1997, he was posthumously inducted into the Northern Kentucky Leadership Hall of Fame.
