The Springfield High School Alumni Association welcomed back returning officers and trustees. Keith Ferguson, Gail Higgins, Marie Gelineau, Mary MacMahan, Margaret Bingham, Brenda Markwell, Jean Patoine, Louise Peale, Andrea Cook, and Tim Brown are all available to answer any questions you may have about the goals of the SHSAA. Contact information can be found on www.shsalumni.com.
There are many opportunities for interested persons to take part in raising funds for SHS scholarships. We are grateful for the help recently offered by Earl Davis and Dana Burke. As we mapped out our calendar for the coming year, the ever popular Unicorn Craft Fair was high on the list of topics. Marie Gelineau organizes over 80 crafters, all with unique offerings, and fills Riverside gymnasium and cafeteria with an endless array of shopping opportunities.
If you fancy performing, maybe you'd want to take part in our annual Variety Show. This year's presentation will be directed by Alice Page with assistance from Alumni liaison, Brenda Markwell.
This show is another venue for raising funds for our scholarships. Show dates will be announced at a later time.
The weekend following graduation next June brings the 55th Alumni Weekend celebration. The theme is TV Classics. Classes can start plans at any time but be sure to register those plans with Keith Ferguson, 885-3273.
The Association would also like to have all classes, regardless of their year of graduation, consider participation in the Alumni Parade in the following year, too. The town of Springfield celebrates its 250th birthday in 2011.
The Alumni Association has aptly chosen this birthday celebration as the theme for its weekend in 2011.
