2023 Membership Drive

 The Galion Alumni Association is looking at forward to a year of change and renewal in 2023. We have entered into a period of transition from the old to the new. We are moving forward in anticipation of building a new board of directors and officers.  With the infusion of younger directors, the Alumni Association will experience some growing pains at first, but with the hope of offering more for dues paying members in the future.  You are encouraged to offer your suggestions as to what you would like the Association to offer to members and to consider actively participating as a board member. Get printable Membership form here.

 Membership in 2022 was at 152 dues paying members, of which 92 are Lifetime Members.  There were two new Lifetime Memberships during 2022.  Most of our annual members are individuals or couples that maintain their memberships year after year.  We would like to encourage those members that are local to participate by attending the monthly meetings and participating in the activities of the Alumni Association.  Alumni Association information and activity updates may be found either on the Galion Alumni Association website or Facebook page.

2022 Update


The sale of 300 Club Tickets was once again our most successful fund raiser with all of the tickets being sold. This brought in $6,000.00 with $3000.00 of that awarded to drawing winners.  How does it work?  At each home game during football and basketball seasons, two tickets are drawn to determine winners of $100.00 each.  Those tickets are then returned to the container and are eligible for future drawings during the season.  Membership dues provided the other source for revenue for 2022 with dues providing $1,535.00. The balance of our income was attributed to donations and interest. Total income for 2022 was $7,146.23.


The Alumni association Sponsored an ad ($250.00) in the Sports programs, an ad ($100.00) in the Performing Arts Program and a Sponsorship Package ($2,500.00) for Connections Weekend. Donations were made to the Junior Prom Parents Committee ($200.00) and the Middle School Spooktackular Event ($100.00).  Expense Items this year included $70.00 for Post Office Box fees.  300 Club drawing winners and ticket printing costs and donation to Boosters club for holding the drawings totaled $3,399.92.  Fees for our 2023 website hosting were $287.88.  Total expenses for year totaled $7,007.43

The Galion Alumni Association continues to be a participating member of the Connections Weekend Committee.  This Committee is responsible for the production of the Galion Connections Weekend which will be held October 11-14, 2023. The Alumni Association plays a large role in the Hall of Fame event and encourages the submission of nominations for Galion High School graduates that deserve recognition.  Nominations for the 2023 Hall of Fame inductees are due by June 1, 2023.  The Connections Weekend Committee maintains a file of nominations submitted, but not selected from previous years for future consideration. All of the Connections Weekend events are open to the public and are not restricted strictly to Alumni.  We encourage your participation in these events.

The Connections Weekend is intended to serve as a fund raising vehicle to provide funds for building a Performing Arts Center on the Galion City Schools Campus.  This is an extremely ambitious undertaking and will continue to be a priority project in 2023. This will be a multi-million dollar project and will require some large donors to step forward. Planning is in process for providing funding for this large project and The Alumni Association is committed to providing any support possible to help accomplish an acceptable end result.

You are encouraged to visit the Galion Alumni Association Facebook Page or the Galion Alumni Association website.   The Alumni Association Board generally meets once a month unless there is a cancellation or rescheduling. The meetings are currently being held at Ralphie's in Galion, usually at 6:30 p.m., on the third Monday of the month.  All who wish to participate are cordially invited to attend.
