35th Annual 

Old Timers Reunion 

Aug 5-7  2022

Randolph Park

Covington, KY

About Old Timers

Originally, Old Timers Weekend began as a way for graduates of Covington's historically African American high school, Lincoln William Grant Highschool, to reunite and celebrate their achievements through a softball game, no wit its 35th 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 35th Annual Old Timers Reunion returned this year, two years after being cancelled because of the state-wide COVID-19 shut down in 2020. Yet again, current residents, family and friends, and former Eastside residents from as far as Ohio, California, Texas, Florida, and New York converged at Randolph Park in Covington, Kentucky. ​

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.
