ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hi all,

We have the opportunity to get together at a couple of events on June 1!  Both of these events are open and available to all classmates and our guest members.  While both are free to attend, if you choose to have drinks or food at the evening gathering, it will be at your expense.  We do know that several out of town classmates will be attending (including Randi and me) and we hope that you'll come out so we can visit and catch up!

EVENT #1
What: Class of 1970 Tour of the new AAHS Building
When: June 1 at 2:30 pm
Where: We will announce the meeting place about a week before the event

 

EVENT #2
What: June 1 Gathering in Altoona
When:  June 1 at 6:00 pm
Where: TBD (it will be at a local restaurant in Altoona)

While there is no upfront cost, we need you to register for these events.  Registrations are needed to arrange for tour guides and to select and arrange for a place to meet.   We have built 2 event registrations, one for each event.  You can see these on the left menu at the bottom, or you can click on each event above and the link should take you to the registration.

If you want to see who's registered, click on the "Classmate Profiles" link on the top menu.  You should see the following screen:

Look for the events that begin with "Attending".  The total attending is at the end of each line.  Clicking on the small circle in front of each entry will filter the list to show the names of those attending (you may need to scroll down).

We hope to see you all!  As always, if you have any questions, please let us know at info@aahs1970.com .



 

Small Group Gatherings

Check out our gallery of Small Group Gatherings to see who's getting together.  There's an active group in Altoona meeting every other month (next gathering is May 23 at Marzoni's).  Let us know if you are meeting with classmates, we'd love to post pictures and advertise to the class for you!


 

Congratulations
 AAHS Class of 1970!

Thanks to your generosity, we have reached our interim goal of $25,000 as the first Altoona Area High School graduating class to create an endowment through the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to benefit our alma mater.  (In fact, the foundation, as of February 29, reports $25,860 in the account.)

Our next target for the AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund in honor of David and Randi (Kibler) Shellenbarger$35,000!

We encourage every class member to become a partner and share in this endowment, so we can tell our children and grandchildren, friends and neighbors, that as an alumni class, we have created an enduring program to benefit biomedical science studies at the high school for many years to come.  Every contribution is important, and no contribution is too small.  What is more, if we can raise an additional $5,000, an anonymous donor will match that amount, pushing us to or past the $35,000.  We hope our classmates will continue to financially support the fund in the future and provide the ability to do even more. 

If you are interested in more information about the program beneficiary of our class endowment -- the Altoona Biomedical Science Pathway – CLICK HERE (NOTE: this is a big file...may take a few moments to load).

The endowment's Initial Funding Group expects to convene a meeting later this year in Altoona, hosted by the AASD Foundation, to discuss the fund, the Altoona Biomedical Science Pathway program focus, and the fund's future with our local Class of 1970 "mates" who also wish to attend.  Details on this meeting will be forthcoming. 

In the meantime, we hope you, and perhaps your families and friends, will consider further contributions to the endowment.

Directions for contributing are included below:

  1. By Check: payable to AASD Foundation (Please write “AAHS Class of 1970” in the note/memo section of your check.  Checks should be sent to:  AASD Foundation, 1201 8th Avenue, Altoona, PA 16602.

  2. Online (credit card): https://www.aahsalumni.org/.  Simply click the “Donate” link on the menu bar at the top.  Then, click “Donate Online” next to “AASD Foundation”.  The “Campaign/Fund” button will default to the AASD Foundation.  When making your donation, please type: “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund” in the “Donor Comments” section to make sure the gift is categorized correctly.

Again, please be sure to designate our class fund with your donation so it will count toward the new match.


Again, congratulations and thanks to our AAHS Class of 1970.
