The school gym, remember it was like new when we were in school, is being remodeled after almost 60 years of use. The school would like to have a new gym time clock so they are having a fund raiser and the Class that raises the most money will have their name on the clock. I have been told that the cost is around $30,000.
Since this fund raiser coincides with our 50 year class reunion I thought we might see just how much as a class we could raise. Wouldn't be something if we could raise the entire amount. A $1,000 dollar donation works out to be just $20 a year for the last 50 years. Attending Arvin High School was worth at least $20 a year to me. How about you? We know times are hard, unemployment is high and $1,000 bucks is a lot of money so we understand if you want or need to give less. Hey, we will get excited about $20 bucks. Let me put it this way...Give what you can. This is about doing something that makes you feels good not a burden.
As soon as we have the information of where we want you to send your donations we will post it here. So check back, we are just starting this project. We will also post the amount raised but will not post or disclose any names. Your donation will be confidential. The donation to the school will be as a class donation.
The goal is to have the Class of 1960 on the score time clock in the gym for the next 60 years and more importantly give the school a new score time clock for the gym.
