Colls On The Cove 2014
Calling all alums: We need YOU!!!
Active members are the lifeblood of our organization, and meeting attendance is one measure of our activity. Reminders are sent out to our board members when meeting time comes around. We encourage all alumni, especially those from the 1960s and 1970s, to start coming out. The 1960s and 1970s grads, for the most part, have raised their kids, and some are nearing retirement. We could use your help and input. Come meet our board, lend a hand, or just make a suggestion. You may run into someone you haven't seen for a while.
The next Alumni Association meeting is on Tuesday, June 16th at 7:30 p.m. at the Collingdale Community Center.
