President’s Blog, April 2015

Welcome to the April “BLOG.” I hope you are enjoying the monthly comments about your alumni association, highlights of Winterset as well as updated calendar of events for the association. This month your board will be having an appreciation dinner to thank those who help get the Husky to members throughout the year. This includes editing, printing, sorting, folding, stuffing envelopes, and mailing out copies to those alumni who do not get the Husky via e-mail. A big THANK YOU from me to these volunteers!
Those of you who do not live close to Winterset but plan to visit will notice some changes to the community. Hy-Vee has opened and is located where the Gold Buffet/Gold Star Lanes just to be, a new motel is being built on the bypass, the John Wayne Museum will be opening in May, hanging flower baskets will soon adorn the square, and there is even talk about a bike trail to Cedar Lake. Remember that Winterset has much to offer returning alumni to see and do, so please return sometime this year.
The Alumni Board will soon begin planning the All School Reunion to be held in October during the Bridge Festival. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to renew friendships and reconnect with classmates. Look for more details in upcoming blogs.
If you are having a class reunion this year, be sure to get current addresses from Billie Jo at the Administration Office (515-462-2718) and also let her know of classmates addresses which need to be updated. Your help will enable the Alumni Association to be current for mailings and contact information for alumni.
Until next month please remember to keep in contact with classmates, plan your next class reunion, support WHS, remember to renew membership and remain active. If you are currently not a member, please consider joining. You can go to our website at and sign up for membership as well as finding out about the Association.
