ANNOUNCEMENTS

WEST ALBANY CLASS OF 1973 45TH REUNION

The 45th West Albany High School Class of 1973 class reunion will be held Thursday, August 9, 2018 through Saturday, August 11, 2018.

The reunion this year will be a bit different. There will not be a formal sit-down dinner, but there will be three opportunities for get-together’s with friends, both new and old.

Thursday, August 9 - We will kick off our reunion at Monteith Park for the concert. Sawyer Brown is the scheduled entertainer.  This event is free, but donations are welcome.  The concert begins at 7:00 p.m., however, the beer garden opens at 5:30 p.m. For more information on this event, see this website:  https://www.cityofalbany.net/departments/parks-and-recreation/events/river-rhythms

Friday, August 10 - Vern and Jeri Saboe have extended an invitation to attend a “Deck Party” at their home, located at 1832 NW Cascade Heights Drive, Albany.  Beer and wine will be provided, and attendees are asked to bring an appetizer to share. There is a great deal of roadside parking in their neighborhood. Time of the gathering is 6:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Saturday, August  11 - Saturday evening will find us at Calapooia Brewing, located at 140 NE Hill Street, Albany. We have the outdoor atrium area beginning at 6:00 p.m. This venue offers brews and burgers (at your own expense), darts, and regular live music. All food and drink must be purchased there.

During the day, there are lots of things to do in and around Albany including The Historic Carousel & Museum, Peavy Arboretum, Timber Linn Memorial, Monteith Historical Society, Albany Regional Museum, parks (both human and dog), not to mention an abundance of shopping both downtown and around. And don’t forget the golfing!

If you know of someone who hasn’t attended any of the past reunions, get ahold of them and share this information. Some classmates come a long distance to see everyone.

If you have any questions, please call Patti (Voegele) Freauff at 541-788-3224 or email her at pandmfreauff@gmail.com. See you in August!

Good Morning,

My name is Steve Sprenger and I am a member of the AUHS Class of 1969.  This year we are hosting the “All Class/Old Timers” reunion on June 24th, for the classes that graduated 1978 or before. 

We keep hearing that many people do not hear or read about the event and so we are making a concerted effort to get the word out by contacting as many classes as possible.  I have attached below the article we put in the Albany Democrat Herald.  I would appreciate it if you would send this information to your classmate via email, Facebook, classmates.com, text, etc.

Also, if you know other year’s class reunion contacts, please send their email address to me and I will send them this note.  I am compiling a list for future “All Class/Old Timers” reunion committees.

Thank you for your time

 

Albany High Schools “All Class/Old Timers” reunion is Sunday, June 24th of this year at the South Albany High School cafeteria.  This reunion is for all persons who were members of the class of 1978 or before from West Albany High School, AUHS, and SAHS   The “Reunion” will be from 11 to 3pm.  Kathy Gilchrist Martin is chairman for this event and you can reach her at 541-979-5885 or by email at Kathy@alk.to
