April is here and we are finally looking forward to spring and warmer weather. A lot is going on this spring for Alumni.
Our Alumni Board meeting is scheduled for April 9 at 7 p.m. at WUHS.
A quarterly Alumni meeting is scheduled for May 14 at 7 p.m. at WUHS. All are welcome to attend these meetings.
Our Alumni Scholarship Committee chair by Darrell Thompson and co-chair by Brian Johnson will be meeting with their committee and deciding who will be receiving scholarships. We are very excited about the scholarships this year as we have voted to add to the scholarships we will be giving out. We are now offering two new scholarships for students that have been accepted into vocational or certificate programs.
Our next big project is getting out the annual Alumni newsletter. We are missing a lot of names, addresses and email addresses. In the interest of saving money we would like to be able to email the Alumni news letter to those that would like it emailed to them instead of mailed. We will need your name, address, year of your graduation, and email address. You may email or call your information to Jean Johnson. Jean’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is 457-1720. One of the ways that the board has thought about is having one contact person for each year that has graduated. If your class has this in place please email Jean with this contact information.
The theme for this year Alumni Parade is games. The following floats are registered: 1957 Pin The Tail On The Donkey, 1958 Ping Pong, 1961 Whack a Mole, 1964 Go Fish, 1973 Operation, 1974 Monopoly, 1979 Beach Volley Ball, and 1994 The Price Is Right. To register your float, please call Betty Fredericks at 802-457-3978.
The Alumni Board would like to thank the following people for their hard work: Carol Towne, Chair of Concessions; Jane Soule, Co-Chair of Concessions; Barbara Leonard and all her crew, both new and old. For the Annual Alumni March Pot Luck Dinner and the Vermont Standard, for there continued support in reporting our events.
Please email Marguerite Mayhew Popple with any Alumni news you would like put in the Vermont Standard at email@example.com or call her at 802-674-4212.
