On October 22, 2006 Alumni Volunteer Class Administrators and Assistants from nearly all the decades since the 1940's met and voted to formalize the Dallastown Alumni Association under the umbrella of the Dallastown Area Educational Foundation providing immediate 501(c) (3) tax exempt status for donations made to alumni efforts through the Foundation. The next day the Dallastown Area Educational Foundation Board of Directors met with Alumni representatives and mutually agreed to unite. After a unanimous vote the Association became formalized under the Foundation.
Alumni Association leadership (Class Administrators and Assistant Administrators) now normally meet three times a year around the time of the Alumni events listed above. These meetings typically involve alumni business /concerns and immediately afterwards a workshop is offered to all Class Administrators and their Assistants on different aspects/functions of the individual class websites. Alumni also provide reports to the Education Foundation at their regular monthly Directors meeting.
The current objectives for the Dallastown Alumni Association are:
Historical: To finish building the individual class sites by loading all names of graduates in the respective classes , the senior photos and and their contact information last on file. To update your contact information click your class website below and click the Log On Button and follow the directions. Special thanks to Frank Schmuck (CA 1984), Angel Fanton-Kern (CA 1982), Shane Krout (CA 1988), Stephanie (Tif) Carlson Janssen (CA 1987), Heather Johnson (Ca 1990) and Keith Ehrhart (CA 1960) along with other Class Administrators who have worked tirelessly loading names, photos and contact information of their class and classes without administrators. Activity: Alumni activity is focused around three events each year. Two events are supported by Alumni. They are the Dollars for Scholars and the Homecoming Football Game/Dance. Note: Alumni are involved with the Dollars for Scholars Awards Banquet through each individual class and their respective decision to offer a scholarship. The third event, the All Alumni Family and Friends Picnic, is open to the public and held the last Saturday in July each summer. This Picnic is completely the responsibility of Dallastown Alumni. Each Alumni Class is asked to handle a specific task concerning the picnic and donate at least one item valued at $25 or more to be used as prizes.
