MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
“Message from the President”
As I sit here to write this spring message, winter is still holding on, but we have had a couple of days that have previewed better days to come. It is a busy time for both the school and for us here at the Alumni Association.
First, if you haven’t already heard, one of the best supporters of this Association has decided to retire from both her position as Vice-President and Chairperson of the Reunion Committee. Linda Reik-Davis has been a staunch advocate for this association and for Valley Forge in general. It is not an exaggeration that if not for Linda, this association may not exist. She has helped support and guide the organization through some very hard and difficult days during her 15 years with us. I wish her the very best in her retirement and hope she sticks her head in the door to say hi often!
The 2018 senior scholarship essays have been submitted and are being reviewed and scored. The winners will be announced at The Winner’s Circle Assembly on April 13th in the Student Center at Valley Forge. The winners will then receive the scholarships at a dinner on May 10th at La Villa Banquet Center where all of the Parma City Schools PTA scholarship recipients will be honored with family and/or friends attending as well. As Always I will post information about our scholarship winners both her and on our Facebook page!
We have two nominees for this year’s Hall of Fame induction which will held during this 2018 Commencement at The Wolstein Center on Sunday, May 27th. I will announce their names next month both here and on our Facebook page. Both of these nominees have led exceptional careers in their chosen fields and have distinguished themselves as Valley Forge Patriots of the highest regard. I look forward to the honor of presenting these two gentlemen this award.
So, as I said a busy time. In closing, I invite our Patriot alumni to come and visit with us at our next Association meeting Tuesday, April 17th at 7:00 PM at Parkview Elementary School located just off W. 54th Street at the State Road Park entrance. (Just south of Parma Senior High School) The entrance to our office space is the door closest to W. 54th Street. See you there! Go Patriots!

Donate Your Old Yearbook to the Alumni Association
If you have yearbooks you no longer want, please consider donating them to our library. We are trying to put together a second and possibly third set of Archives to be kept off-site for protection.
These are available for reference only in our office.
The Wetlands Project
The Wetlands Project began with a discussion between the Association and Jim Wohl, Class of '66.
Looking for Memorabilia!
The Alumni Association is always looking for VF memorabilia. We use them in displays and we make them available for your class to display at reunion time.
We can hold on to your class' memorabilia so it doesn't get lost in someone's attic or basement. We even have the very first Battlecry that was published in 1962.
