 REUNION PLANNING GUIDE  

 

Dear Reunion Planning Committee Members,

 

The Arrow Education Foundation is also the WHS Alumni Association. We maintain and update an alumni database, and the Foundation website. Twice a year we publish and distribute the WHS Alumni and Friends Newsletter.

 

Here are some ways that we can assist your committee in reunion planning:

Provide a class list (names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers). *

● Provide labels, registration flyer and postage for one reunion mailing. *

● Post reunion information on the AEF website: www.arroweducationfoundation.com

● Place reunion information in the May & November newsletters (info needed by April/Oct).

     * Please give us two weeks to provide database lists, notices and labels.

 

 

Additionally, the Foundation can:

● Arrange tours of the high school. (We'll put you in touch with a contact at WHS)

● Arrange special seating for your class if you wish to come to the Foundation tailgate party before the Homecoming game.
