GRADUATION DAY 1968
GRADUATION DAY 1968

Great news from Jerry Zahl on the results of our 50th reunion class scholarship fund raising!  This will be published soon in the UB!
 
“Due to very positive leadership from the WA-HI Class of 1968 Reunion organizing team, and the strong spirit of the class of 1968, the WA-HI Class of 1968 has helped raise over $9,000.00 in the last 45 days for the Walla Walla Public High Schools Scholarship Fund.
$3,000 came from those celebrating their 50th reunion, and this amount was matched TWO FOR ONE by WA-HI class of 1962 Graduate Garth Lindsey.
The entire class gift plus gifts from other graduates and caring community members brings the Walla Walla Public High Schools Scholarship Fund total to approximately $117,585.40. With a little bit of love, and more luck “in the market” the fund will hopefully end the year at or over $120,000.00.
This is a fund that began only six years ago, and which has paid out near $9,000.00 in Scholarship assistance. Fund earnings only go out as scholarship aid for increasing learning opportunities beyond high school.
Every gift of any size is always appreciated; for the need as well as recipient appreciation remains strong.
 
Gifts may be made to Blue Mountain Community foundation, P O Box 603, WWW 99362 ; ATTN WWPHS-SF Great appreciation to the WA-HI Class of 1968, to Garth Lindsey, and to all who continue to help this program grow. Jerry Zahl

WHAT A REUNION IT WAS!  NEARLY 200 PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE, WITH UNLIMITED SMILES AND LAUGHTER, RECALLING TIMES PAST.  AND A GREAT START TO THE CLASS OF 1968 SCHOLARSHIP FUND (SEE BELOW). 

THE RECEPTION AT THE WINERY, THE TOUR OF THE HIGH SCHOOL BY THE CURRENT PRINCIPAL, AND THEN THE COUNTRY CLUB DINNER.  THE WINE, THE FOOD, THE COMPANY, THE MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED .  AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE TEACHERS BILL BIELOH, DICK NEHER, AND RON AND JOYCE HUNTINGTON. 

THANKS TO THE REUNION COMMITTEE FOR SUCH AN OUTSTANDING EVENT.
IT JUST FELT PLAIN GOOD TO BE AROUND CLASSMATES FROM THE CLASS OF 1968.  REAL AFFECTION WAS PALPABLE. 

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE REUNION COMMITTEE IS RE-CONVENING TO PLAN A 55TH REUNION.
