Rowland Heights – Community Support Needed for Volunteer Event: The entire community is invited on Fri., Sept. 26, to celebrate Rowland High School’s 50th Anniversary with a fun-filled, community jubilee!
With a bow to its beginnings when Rowland was a small community where students were just as likely to ride a horse to school as drive a car, the 50th Jubilee will boast a good ole’ fashioned Country/Western theme. Everyone is invited: alumni, students, parents, faculty/staff (past and present), and community members. The campus will be filled with activities such as food booths to tantalize a variety of tastes, game booths, entertainment, a trip down memory lane, and tours of the new modernized facilities will begin at 3:15 p.m. Afterward, everybody is invited to the stadium to cheer the Rowland Raiders football team on to victory at 7 p.m.
Rowland High School Principal, Mitch Brunyer, is in charge of the volunteer committee. “Being a lifelong Raider as a student, teacher, and now principal of the school, I am very proud of its history and traditions. I look forward to highlighting the school and its connection to the community – we hope everyone can help support and attend this community event!”
Please help with this gala by donating funds and/or goods. All contributions are tax-deductible. Banners are available for purchase ($250-$1,000) for display outside the Rowland High School Tom Aney Stadium for the entire school year. Contact ASB Director, Leslie Phillips, at (626)965-3448, ext. 3323, or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.rowlandhs.org.
