Wakefield Class of 1960
What are your donations used for?
Reunion Committee Business
We will no longer print the Newsletter after the 2016 summer edition. All
communications will take place either by direct e-mail or public access to our class
website. We still have certain costs associated with maintaining class records.
Donations to the class defray these costs.
We do need to have a reasonable pool of seed money in our treasury in order to make
good-faith deposits for contracting services in advance around our major 5-year reunions -
hotel, food service, music, and photography - to name a few. And this is real money,
not just promises. We try to keep a balance of a few thousand dollars for this
Picking up the costs of a few invited guests to our reunions (e.g, faculty from our
high school days and persons associated with contemporary Wakefield) is one of those
things that - rather than adding to the registration costs - are being taken care of from
your voluntary contributions.
From time to time one of our classmates needs some help in attending one of our
functions. Our resources are very limited, but we try to help those we can.
Don't be afraid to ask, don't hesitate to contribute.
So if it's been a while since you contributed anything to the Class of 1960. Now
would be a good time to consider making a contribution to our general treasury. Make
checks payable to "Wakefield H.S. Class of 1960" and mail to Jeanne Midgett at
the address on the top of this page. Our books are open to anyone wishing to see how
funds are expended. Expenditures of your hard-earned money get good scrutiny.
Some of our classmates who attend the Mini-Reunions in Sarasota make contributions to
this activity. These funds go primarily to cover expenses and help those who want to
Donations Beyond Our Class
And if you've still got any money left after all the above, go to the Wakefield
Education Foundation site, and do something for them too. WEF has been very
supportive of our efforts and allows us mount the 1960 class pages on their site - we are
taking about over a gigabyte of information. And WEF does some very worthwhile
things with contributions, as is explained on the WEF site.

Finally, consider the Arlington Outdoor Education Association, an organization that has
been supported by many individual 1960 Warriors, as well as Wakefield 1960 as a group.
