A Letter from the President
Here is the quarterly letter from the Alumni Association President, Bob McCarthy '51
This is to let you know that your RHSAA has been active during the past few months. We received requests for participation in the Teachers Wish List and slightly over $2,400 has been awarded to RHS teachers to supplement their classroom instructional needs. Both our board meetings, the first Wednesday of every month, and association general meetings, the third Wednesday of every month, have been held since this past August.
Currently, plans are being made for our “Winter Luncheon” by our activities chair, Judy Aguilar. The luncheon will be held on Sunday, February 19th, at the Timbers in Sun City. You shortly will receive an official announcement of this gala affair. The cost of the luncheon will be $40 per person. Some may think that this is rather high, but it must be taken into account how we all know how the cost of both food and labor have increased over the past couple of years. The Timbers always presents a delicious meal in a delightful setting. Since the pandemic has somewhat subsided, we hope to see a large crowd at the luncheon sharing tall stories with their classmates from Roseville High.
Another project that your RHSAA is actively involved in is the Roseville High School Historical Museum Project. The project is being headed up by Erin and Greg Granucci, both instructors at Roseville High. Plans call for the project to be done in two phases. The first phase will be done in the Sylvia Besana Administrative Building foyer and hallway. The second phase will be on the face of the Julie Estridge Library. Each phase will consist of beautiful graphics depicting the history and pride of the “high school on the hill.” Each phase of the project will be priced at $10,000. Phase I in the administrative building is being funded by the Alumni Association, not from our general fund, rather from contributions made to the “Memorial Fund.” Contributions will be solicited from former graduates for funding of the second phase of the project and have already been received from some. See the enclosed informational flier.
Once again, I would like to remind you that all of our general meetings of the association are open to all and are held on the third Wednesday of each month, August through May, (except in December). I would like to see the attendance at these meetings increase, and I would encourage each of you to try and attend at least a couple of the meetings each year.
Now, on behalf of the Board and myself, I would like to wish you a glorious Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year. And remember, “Once a Tiger, always a Tiger!”
