AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund

In spring 2022, several members of the Altoona Area High School Class of 1970, in part to commemorate their belated 50th reunion, partnered with the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to launch the “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund.” 

The new endowment fund, currently with contributions/pledges of more than $7,000 and an overall goal of $25,000, was created as “a gift in perpetuity” to benefit the high school.  The Class of 1970 is the first class to utilize a named endowment, which will literally “pay dividends” to the school for many years to come. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and contribute (either one-time or ongoing) to make this project a success.

Under the AASD Foundation, our tax-deductible contributions, will be pooled and invested until the $25,000 goal is reached sometime in the next few years.  A small committee of class donors along with the foundation will be established to monitor and help guide the fund and determine how proceeds might best aid the high school.

The endowment fund will be discussed briefly at the AAHS Class of 1970 reunion on Saturday, July 30, 2022, in Altoona.  Questions can always be directed to our website (info@aahs1970.com) or to Paula Foreman at the AASD Foundation by email (pforeman@altoonasd.com) or phone (814-946-8424

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM

AAHS CLASS OF 1970 REUNION COMMITTEE

 

Hello Classmates,

On behalf of the Reunion Committee, we want to thank you for your support of our efforts to put together the last few reunions.  It’s been an interesting experience for all of us.  After much discussion, we’ve decided that the upcoming reunion in July of 2022 will be our last as a committee.  There are several reasons for this:

  1. Apparent dwindling interest from classmates (based on current registrations)

  2. Lingering issues from the pandemic

  3. Old age and tired bones

We originally thought about announcing this at the reunion, but we’re writing now, as we wanted to encourage you to come out for one last gathering.  We also didn’t want anyone to be under the impression that we would be planning a 55th.

That said, we have a subscription for the website that is good through 2026 (and can be extended).  I (Dave) intend to keep this going at least that long.  If there are classmates who want to try to organize further gatherings (either for the entire class) or more local events, I will be happy to build announcements, event pages, etc. for you.  I would expect all planning to be done by that group and my participation would simply be communication.  If you are interested, please contact me at info@aahs1970.com or see me at the reunion.

We’re still hopeful that we can get together in July.  Please register as soon as possible, but please be aware that the absolute deadline for registration is July 1, 2022.  If we do not reach at least 150 attendees, we will be forced to cancel the reunion as costs will prevent us from moving forward.

SPECIAL REQUEST!

Hi all...we have a special opportunity at our reunion this year.  Our DJ, Laine Roland (Awe-Struck Entertainment) is the daughter of deceased classmate Colleen Mosser.  She is very excited to come to the reunion and hopes to hear about her mom from those of us who knew Colleen.  Laine was only 16 when her mom passed. 

If you have stories to share, please plan to introduce yourself to Laine at the reunion. She is also planning to bring her mom's yearbook for you to sign.  However, it would be nice to give her a more permanent record of recollections.  If you are willing, please go to Colleen's "In Memory" page (click here) and add your recollection.  We will find a way to pull all of these off the site and present them to Laine at the reunion.  Please take advantage of this special request as a way to honor Colleen's memory and give her daughter some special remembrances.
