The Galion Alumni Association will hold its annual Wine Tasting Event on Saturday, March 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Galion Country Club.  Tickets for the event are $25 each or couples tickets for $40.  Tickets are available from any Alumni Association Board member.  Check the Alumni Association website for more information on ticket availability.

The Wine Tasting Event will feature Ohio wines and appetizers prepared by the chef at the Galion Country Club.  A silent auction is also a part of this fundraising event.  Last year's event was a great success and fun for all that attended.  "We had a very good time and great success with this event last year," said Brian Treisch, chairman of the Galion Alumni Association.  "We hope for an even bigger crowd this year."  The event is open to all, not just Galion alumni.

Funds raised by this event will go to the support of the Galion City Schools campus wear fund.  The Galion Alumni Association supports many other school activities as well including recent support for the band trip and the facilities review project.  Membership in the Galion Alumni Association is open to all that attended Galion schools, taught in the Galion Schools, or wish to support the Alumni Association.

2015 Membership Drive and 2014 Review


As we look at 2014 passing in our rear view mirror, the time has come to present our accomplishments in the past year and recruit new members for 2015.  In the review below, are the activities that the Galion Alumni Association participated in during 2014.  It is through our memberships that we are able to contribute financially and physically to alumni activities involving the Galion City Schools and the Galion Community. Thank you for your choosing to support the Galion Alumni Association.

 In 2014, there were 144 dues paying members, of which 71 were Lifetime Members.  Lifetime Memberships have increased by two this year.  Most of those that are Annual Members have been loyal members through the existence of the organization. We, as an organization, greatly appreciate the loyalty of our current members and encourage the participation of these members to become actively involved in the activities of the organization.  Would you please consider becoming a dues paying member for 2015.  For local members we encourage participation by becoming a member of the Board of Directors and participating in the activities of the Alumni Association.  There is always the opportunity for all to relay suggestions for activities that would appeal to you.

2014 saw the Galion Alumni Association continue to pursue opportunities to aid in building a better school system and community.  We have been involved in providing funds for small projects that benefit current students and recognize the contributions of Galion Graduates. Some of those efforts are covered below.
