Dear Patrick Henry Class of 1978 Patriots,
John Osborne and myself, representing our Class of 1978, presented a check in the amount of $13,000 to the Patrick Henry High School Foundation during the October 3, 2008 PHHS Alumni Open House event held in the school’s newly remodeled quad celebrating the school’s 40th Anniversary. Hopefully, a few other classes picked up on this idea and will follow suit at their next reunion.
To clarify, these funds were actually an accumulation of the funds donated by your Reunion Committee to the Foundation as a result for net revenue collected from reunion tickets, raffle/silent auction, and related expenses associated with our 20th, 25th and 30th Reunions. However, even though our attendance at the 30th Reunion was less than we originally budgeted for, we were able to limit our expenses and, as a result of our successful raffle and silent auction, we were able to donate $7,000 of these monies from this event alone!
The PHHS Cheer programs whom helped out with our 20th and 30th Reunion programs were each given $400 and $450, respectively, as a thank you for their efforts. One lucky, hardworking cheerleader received a new iPod for her efforts in selling tickets at our August 16th event.
Once again, I would like to thank our entire Reunion Committee for their hard work, and in particular: Ron Akers, Steve Cosio, Diane Darley-Munoz, Donna Devine-Wallace, Erin Doherty-Kanetsky, Deanna Hopkins-Christman, Renee Jones, John Osborne, Andy Poat, and Tony Romero, just to name a few.
If you are still interested in receiving prints of the photographs taken during the night of the Reunion, please contact Carolyn Marie at (619) 920-6852, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to periodically check this PHHS Class of 1978 Website for announcements and to keep your contact information up to date.
