Class of ’61 Foundation Activities

The Class of ’61 does wonderful things for the students of District 41.  They are hosting a golf tournament to raise funds for their foundation and sent me this information to share with alumni.



Attached is our sign up flyer for both golf and hole sponsors. This link to our website gives some info about our Foundation:

We also have a Facebook page:

Anything you can do via the RI Alumni website will be appreciated.

Your RIHS Booster Club also voted to sponsor a hole. Please forward the flyer to the appropriate person so it can be sent in for registration. The hole sponsor signs can have a logo. Can you email me a logo for the Booster Club logo?

Thanks for your offer to help. Hopefully your club members can also put together a team.
