Here’s a preview of the kinds of things you can expect to find in The Husky:

The Alumni Association expresses their gratitude! We would like to give special thanks to the American Legion Hall for letting us gather at their facility for our folding parties. It is the perfect location for us!

We count on the volunteers for every issue of The Husky. The time they take out of their lives to help us out is invaluable. We have a “folding party” for each issue that is mailed out and the volunteers fold and stuff the newsletters, and apply the mailing labels.

They are a hardworking group of folks who show their dedication and Husky loyalty by volunteering their time. And…. maybe…. some of them come especially for the coffee and treats, too (or so they say). They are a lot of fun, and we appreciate them! This photo was taken in May, 2015 and shows the volunteers who were present to work that day.
