We have reached the end of another quarter, the 4th quarter, and that means the end of yet another year. I have had a very busy year but thanks to the Board of Trustees a very productive year. The people that run this association are very special volunteers and I know what a small part I play without them. THANK YOU ALL!
I have said it before but it is worth repeating, “Our Museum and Association are unique. As far as I know, or can tell, we are a one of a kind organization throughout our nation.“ That in itself and with your membership in such an organization is something to be very, very proud of.
If you have not visited our museum lately please come in and see what is new. Our volunteers work constantly to update our facility, display cases, record books, old year books (dating back to 1905), scrap books (dating back before WWII), books (written all by R.H.S. Graduates and on display), R.H.S. jewelry, old band uniforms, cheerleader uniforms, panorama pictures of classes dating back to the 50’s, old athletic pictures dating back to the 1900’s, and this list just scratches the surface.
If you have not visited your museum you are truly missing out on one of the best kept secrets in the Reno area. Let us face it, no other high school has the legacy or pedigree that we pose and are able to share with others and do proudly. Please join us.
In other issues of this newsletter I have stressed the importance of sustaining memberships in the Alumni Association. As I have referred to membership in the past, “I have said it is the life blood of this organization and will be as long as we are active. We is you so if you have not joined the Alumni Association please do. It is inexpensive, informative (newsletters quarterly w/membership fee), and it makes a great gift.
Due to the restraint in the limited space for this newsletter, we have not published a membership application form in quite some time. Not so for this letter! At the publication of the last newsletter I received a call from a member’s wife who asked why not, why don’t we offer an application? So fill out the application and join. Thank you for the phone call Mrs. L., nice talking to you.
This year has not been quite as good for new members as I would have liked. That being said I was really taken by the number of new Life Members Thank you all very much, THANK YOU.
This year was also a good year for very generous individual donations and generous class reunion donations. The Class of 1978 made a generous donation at the conclusion of their reunion. THANK YOU ALL. Your name will be added to the Major Donors Plaque that appears in the Welcome Vestibule Area as you enter the museum.
Again I must add my voice to Facebook and others to pleas in asking for new volunteers to fill vacancies on our Board of Trustees and our crew of volunteers who help around the museum. Please come and help. Only a few hours but very rewarding.
Also Scott Jordan is moving on. This will be a great loss as he has served in many positions including Board Member, Vice President, President and many others. THANK YOU.
One last BIG Thank You goes out to Roberta Fraser for her tireless years of museum help. We could not have done it without you! THANK YOU FOR YOUR YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR MUSEUM. YOU HAVE BEEN A TREASURE.
