 Lake Worth Community High School Homecoming

Mark your calendars! Let’s have some fun! How about a Lake Worth Community High School Homecoming Weekend! This could be a mini-reunion.

Friday, October 26, 2018, is the Homecoming football game. By the way, there is a ramp to get up to the stands. Our new band director, Tiffany Cox, tiffany.cox@palmbeachschools.org, will be looking for alumni band members and majorettes to participate or just sit nearby to cheer on the band and, of course, the football team. As time gets closer, I’m sure more Homecoming festivities will be announced.

Saturday, October 27, 2018, is the LW Dollars for Scholars Golf Tournament at Palm Beach National Golf Club, 7500 St. Andrews Road, Lake Worth, FL. Sign in is at 12PM. Cost is $125 per golfer or $400 per foursome. You might be the lucky golfer to get a hole-in-one and win a boat! If you aren’t a golfer there are other ways to participate by purchasing golf balls for the ball drop, buy a tee sign advertising your business or sharing your support, or offer gift certificates for the silent auction. It’s a fun day and we can use volunteers, too. The money raised helps academically qualified and financially needy Lake Worth High School students. For additional information or to register contact Tournament Chairperson Meredith Abrams fsuteachermere96@mail.com.

Sunday, October 28, 2018, will be the LWHS Alumni Foundation luncheon at Atlantis Country Club at 1PM. Lunch $20 tax & tip included. RSVP.

Show your LW Trojan support by joining the Alumni Foundation. Annual dues are $25 single, $40 couple, $200 lifetime. Also check out our website www.lwhsalumni.org. For additional information on membership and/or the luncheon contact Carol Childs Webster ccwebster@comcast.net.

Come on let’s do this! Fill up your gas tank, buy that plane ticket, find your maroon clothes, contact a fellow Lake Worth High School Graduate and join us!

DONATION FOR NEW BAND UNIFORMS

The new uniform “reveal” with Dr. Chris and MaryJo Petterson, Dr. Elvis Epps, Tiffany Cox and Trojan Sound Band Members.

I have some exciting news to share with you.  One of our LWCHS grads, Dr. Chris Petterson and his wife, Mary Jo, donated $4000.00 to purchase new band shirts which will not only be cool to look at, but cool to wear in our warm South Florida weather.  Dr. Petterson and his wife had earlier donated $1000.00 for the band competition trip to Atlanta.

The uniform drive is still in progress, but with a hefty $40,000.00 bill, these new shirts will make our band members look snappy and full of rhythm until the $40,000.00 goal can be met!  Amazing what “new threads” will do for the self esteem of the band members!  AND…who knows maybe it will draw in some new band members.

A big THANK YOU  goes out to Dr. Chris Petterson and his wife, Mary Jo. 

Carol Webster, President

Randy Hall Memorial Fund

The Alumni Board of Directors lost not only a wonderful Treasurer and Board Member, but a loyal and terrific friend with the sudden passing of Randy Hall. A 1960 graduate of Lake Worth High School, Randy was an integral part of our Alumni Foundation, serving as Treasurer, and was a well respected and invaluable member of our Board.

The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation is setting up a Memorial Fund in Randy’s memory. If desired, please send any amount, tax deductible, to the address listed below and note Randy Hall Memorial Fund on your check. We certainly appreciate any donation.

 NEWSPAPER DISTRIBUTION IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Two issues of the Alumni Foundation newspaper were mailed to over 11,000 alumni in 2013. The cost to your Alumni Foundation for these two issues was $8321 which represents over 80% of our administrative expenses.

In order to save most of this money, we plan to take the following steps beginning in 2015.

  1. Continue to create the newspaper twice a year.
  2. Deliver printed newspaper only to Alumni Foundation members (see membership application elsewhere on this website).
  3. Provide newspaper on our website for all other alumni.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.
