SWHS Alumni Assn - monthly meeting

The May general membership meeting of the SWHS Alumni Assn is Wednesday, May 26th at 1:00 p.m. at the Sedro-Woolley Senior Center.

Come on by and find out about the success of our May 1st geranium and tomato plant sale! And get your ticket for the All-Class Picnic on July 10th - better yet, volunteer to help out at the picnic! It's always more fun when you have a job to do and an excuse to circulate among the alumni!

Our breaking news is that the 2010 scholarship recipients have been selected. As soon as the students are notified, you'll see the list here!

Membership rally was today!

Thanks to the faithful members of the S-WHS Alumni Assn who came to our membership "rally" this morning to hear about the association activities. We appreciate your time and interest. Please spread the word about our association and encourage your class members to become active!

This year we will award 6 scholarships to S-W grads who are pursuing vocational careers. Association members make this happen! Check back here often so you can see who the winners are as soon as they are announced!

Here's a photo from this morning - a good looking crowd!

Alumni Association Membership Rally!

Saturday, May 15th, plan to be at the S-WHS Membership "Rally"! The Association holds these informative meetings twice a year - to ensure that alumni have a chance to attend and find out what we are up to!

May 15th
10:00 a.m. to noon
Sedro-Woolley Senior Center
Bring a friend!

We'll have information on fundraising efforts for scholarships - including the recent successful geranium sale - our upcoming all-class picnic on July 10th, and ask what you would like to see the Association provide as far as member services (e.g., our newsletter and this blog!).

It's really important to have at least one member from each graduating year attend. So many classes have a person who is their focal point for class gatherings and information. That person needs to attend to be able to pass the information back to their class members, near and far.

YOU also need to attend so you can become more involved with the Association. Especially to help with the all-class picnic, which is right around the corner!

Is your class having a reunion event or any kind of gathering this year? Bring that information so we can help you publicize it!

Are you recent grads or was your graduation year way back when? All classes are welcome! This is an inter-generational opportunity!

Here's your trivia question for today: Who are the folks in this photo? They are part of the S-WHS Alumni Assn's leadership team. Come to the membership rally so you'll know their names!

Geranium Sale today!

Thanks to everyone who turned out for the annual Geranium Sale this morning! It was a big hit, as usual.

Geraniums, tomato plants, and baked goods were flying out the door! I don't think there were any tugging matches, but I wasn't there the whole time.

We thank you and the scholarship fund thanks you!

Committee chair Doreen monitors sales.

Barbara tidies up the plants.
