Saxon Alumni News!

Vol. 8

Welcome to the Loara Saxons Alumni Association e-newsletter! 
Message from the President

Hi Alumni,


Have you heard the news? The Loara Saxons Marching Band has been selected by the Mayor of Anaheim to participate in the Washington D.C. Memorial Day Parade next year!! Great news and congratulations to our band director Scott Dominguez and the Loara Saxons Marching Band! Now for the hard part. The band will need to raise the funds to travel to Washington D.C. and the estimated cost is $120,000.00. I know it seems like a lot but remember how big the band is and how much it would cost to get just one person to Washington with airfare and hotel rooms.  The band will of course be doing their own fundraising and the school will be able to help some but this is an opportunity for Alumni from all years to step up and help these young Saxons.  Any amount you can donate will help to defray the cost of this trip and would be greatly appreciated by the band and Loara!


Mail your checks payable to Loara to:

Don't forget we have a fun event coming up, bowling at Linbrook Bowl on April 25th. See the details below. We need you to get your money in ASAP so we can reserve your lanes for you.  Click here and scroll down a little to reserve your spot.   


We also have some new events we are working on in the near future. A possible lunch at Tom's Farms in Corona and wine tasting in Temecula. We should have more details about times and dates in our May newsletter.


A large batch of membership renewals went out in the mail in February. I want to thank those Saxons who have renewed your membership. Every $20.00 does really help and we do appreciate your commitment. We can't give back to Loara without your help.


Last month the Loara Saxons Alumni Association donated $200.00 to the Loara Saxons softball team for their new outfield fence. Previously we have donated a lap top and funds to a field trip. The more Saxons who join us allow us to do these donations. As we grow so will the size of the donations!


Once again, if you have not joined the Association please consider doing so. It is only $20.00 per year. We have 1321 people on our Facebook group page. If every one of those signed up at just the $20.00 level that would give us and annual income of $26,420.00. However, only about 200 Saxons have joined so far. We are growing but slowly and we really need your help!


Best regards,



John D. Marshall - President

Class of 1969


How the Alumni Association is Giving Back!
Your Alumni Association is working very hard to build a strong, long-lasting, collaborative relationship with the faculty and staff at Loara High School.  As alumni we remember our teachers, coaches, and administrative staff. 

By giving back to the current faculty and staff of Loara High School we hope to get our newer alumni to help us to more for the school.  Some of the current projects are burying the time capsule, donating when we can to smaller projects (like the softball team fence), and now helping the band get to Washington D.C. 
Pie donations for the faculty & staff on national PI Day!

Candy filled Easter Eggs for all faculty & staff and a special Easter basket for the Main Office to share with TA's and visitors.

We can't do it without YOU!

Thank you for your continued support of your Alumni Association!!!
 2015 Quartermania benefiting the Miss Anaheim Fall Festival Scholarship Program
We'd like to thank you for joining us last year and hope you will attend our party once again.  If this is your first time, you are in for a fun night!  We host an unique event.  Local businesses donate delicious appetizers, we have a decadent dessert bar, fun raffles, of course the fast paced Quartermania game (it's easy to participate) and beer and wine are available for purchase.  We have gifts geared toward both men and women.  This is not a typical ladies luncheon on a Saturday afternoon.  It's a Friday evening... The perfect way to kickoff your weekend.  Come celebrate and support a great cause at the same time.  A good time will be had by all!   Click here to see the flier! 

This is the main fundraiser for the Miss Anaheim Fall Festival scholarship program.  The money raised goes toward educational scholarships and helps fund service opportunities for the MIss Anaheim Fall Festival Scholarship Program's Court.   


You'll get a chance to hear them talk about the program and what it means to them.  I'm excited for you to meet and interact with these girls...  I think you will be impressed to see the benefit of this program first hand! 
***Space is limited so get you checks in today.  Our goal is to sell out this event ahead of time.   


See you at the event,
Debbie Herman
