School foundation wrapping up '02 campaign

ILWACO - The Ocean Beach Education Foundation this week announced the successful completion of the past year's Ilwaco Alumni Donor Campaign. Organizers are celebrating a total of almost $125,000 in money donated and pledged.

Karen Keiski Kaino, treasurer of the OBEF and a member of the Alumni Donor Campaign committee, reported "We still are receiving donations from alumni responding to a mailing done in July, but for organizational purposes the steering committee has ended their work."

The Alumni Donor Campaign was patterned after similar projects taking place right now all over the country. Large and small communities are seeking alumni resources for support of their public schools. As state and federal assistance becomes less and less adequate, public groups are creating growth funds that will provide a stable source of funding for generations to come.

The Ilwaco Alumni Donor Campaign steering committee is a prime example of grassroots volunteerism to enhance one's community and the quality of life therein. In June 2001, a group of 13 Ilwaco High School alumni began working together to locate other alumni and create a database. Now that the campaign is over, it is hoped that a byproduct of their work might result in increased membership in the existing Ilwaco High School Alumni Association, and annual or semi-annual publication of an alumni newsletter.

Peninsula residents who served on the committee include: Martha Turner Murfin (1935), Dobby Wiegardt (1948), David Aase (1953), Nancey Kary Olson (1958), Darlene Frazier Biggs (1959), Ann Holway Driscoll (1959), Fred Cook (1960), Lorna Andersen Follis (1960), Frank Glenn, III (1961), Penny Bunce Treat (1964), Mary Bussone Luethe (1968), Karen Burton Harrell (1971), Karen Keiski Kaino (1972), and serving as honorary chair, and an inspiration to the whole campaign, was Class of 1922 graduate Lolita Tinker Morris.

Anyone still wishing to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Alumni Donor Campaign may do so by sending a donation to the Ocean Beach Education Foundation (OBEF), P.O. Box 372, Ilwaco, WA 98624. Make checks payable to OBEF.

LONG BEACH - Citing upcoming construction projects impacting the P.U.D. storage site at Highway 101 and Sandridge Road, the Sunset Empire Transportation District will no longer stop there to pick up or discharge students riding the bus to and from Start of the Sea School in Astoria.
