Galion Alumni Association brings back the 300 Club


A popular fund raising effort has been brought back to Galion by the Galion Alumni Association.  The 300 Club will be used by the Alumni Association to raise funds for its many activities. The format of the 300 Club is simple. Three hundred $20 tickets are sold.  At each home Galion football and basketball game two winners of $100 will be drawn.  Winners names will go back into the drawing, so it is possible to win more than one drawing.  Winners need not be present to win.  Tickets will be sold up to the first home football game.

Tickets are available from the board members of the Galion Alumni Association.  Board members with tickets are Brian Treisch, Joe Kleinknecht, Bill Durtschi, and Julie Boles.  More information on tickets is available on the Galion Alumni Facebook page or by calling 419-566-5326.


Funds from this activity will support the efforts of the Alumni Association.  The Alumni Association has supported the campus wear fund of the Galion Schools, the marching band trip to Nashville, and other activities of the Galion City Schools.
