Alumni Events

What is the monthly breakfast?

The monthly breakfasts are a way for alumni from all years to gather.  The second Saturday of each month alumni gather at Marie Callender's, 540 N Euclid St., Anaheim, CA.  The breakfast begins at 9 am and usually ends about 11 am.  Alumni are responsible for purchasing their own breakfast.  An invitation to each months event with pictures of the menu is sent out via our Facebook page at 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/LoaraSaxonsAlumni/

 

We hope to see you at Marie Callender's!

How do I recommend an event?

The Alumni Association is always looking for fun events.  The more we can gather the better.  Previous events include:  Angel Games, Bowling @ Linbrook Bowl, Ducks Games, Winter Holiday Luncheon, and Wine Tasting.  All events are self purchased. 

 

We would like to have all graduating years participate; therefore, keep in mind when suggesting an event that our newest alumni are either going to college, trade school, have joined the military, still living at home, working, or underage for drinking.  

 

If you have an event idea simply email Anna Kunkle, Alumni Association President at LSAAPresident92@gmail.com

How do I find information about my reunion?

Many of the reunions are publicized via the alumni association Facebook page at

https://www.facebook.com/groups/LoaraSaxonsAlumni/

 

If you do not have a Facebook page simply go to the "EVENTS " on the navigation bar here, and click "Decade Reunions."  We post reunion information as we receive it from various Class Reunion committee. 

 

If you know of a reunion and do not see it on this website please let us know by emailing loarasaxonsalumni@gmail.com.

How do I plan a reunion?

Typically the class president of any one given year is responsible for heading up a committee to plan reunions.  Most classes hold Decade Reunions (every 10 years) in a location near Loara or Orange County; some classes also host 5-year Mid-Decade Reunions that are more informal.

 

LSAA is in the process of creating a summary "How to Plan a Reunion" guide.  Once it is complete, it will be upload to the website.  If you have any helpful hints you would like to add to the document please email Pam Manazer, Class of 1965, at pamanaz@aol.com

Donations

What is the time capsule?

Part of the planning for Loara’s 50th Anniversary in 2012/2013 was to purchase a Time Capsule and to fill it with artifacts from Loara’s history.

 

The Loara Saxons Alumni Association, Inc. agreed to purchase a Time Capsule for the school and to collect the artifacts. Through the efforts of John Marshall, Class of 1969 and Anthony Mastrangelo, Class of 1965 a Time Capsule was fabricated out of Stainless Steel and purchased.

 

Artifacts are currently being collected to go into the Time Capsule and burial is being planned for late in 2015 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the 1st graduating Class of 1965 from Loara.

 

If you have artifacts from Loara’s history, photos, pins, programs, clothing anything of interest that you would like to donate to the Time Capsule please contact John Marshall @ Lsaapresident65@gmail.com.

 

The Loara Saxons Alumni Association, Inc. is also asking for monetary donations to be made to the Time Capsule Fund to help with the burial costs. A concrete vault will need to be built and the estimated cost is $3000.00 including the plaque.

 

Please visit the Saxon Store on our website to donate to the Time Capsule Fund or you may mail a check to:

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!

Can I make a donation to a specific cause?

Absolutely!  LSAA has several specific causes it supports throughout the year.  A few of these include the Tommy Thomason Scholarship Fund, Winter Wishes (in November/December), and Prom Assistance (in March/April).

 

Tommy Thomason Scholarship Fund

In September 2017, the LSAA began accepting donations for the Tommy Thomason Scholarship Fund, and we have received numerous contributions.  Details with respect to scholarship requirements, validation of information, the scholarship amount, and the Application Form and deadline are posted annually in August/September.   

You can donate at any time on line by on the Scholarship donation box on the DONATION page, or by mailing your check to LSAA, P.O. Box 9397, Anaheim, CA 92812-9397.  Thanks in advance for keeping Tommy's Legacy alive!

 

Winter Wishes
Loara has a "Winter Wishes Program" to help fulfill some wants and needs of our current Saxon students. Reading the requests from some of the students is heart breaking. Some have never been able to afford one yearbook in their 4 years at Loara and would like just one of them. Some would like a t-shirt so they can be proud of their school when they are off campus. Some are asking for a hoodie sweatshirt because it is getting cold. One asked for a Starbucks card so they could get some breakfast in the morning.  Annual requests for assistance are posted on the DONATION page in late October, but you can donate anytime during the year.

 

Planned Giving

Are you interested in giving to LSAA on a regular basis?  or possibly including LSAA as an insurance or Will beneficiary?  For information about Planned Giving please email John Marshall if you are interested.  Thanks!

 

 

How do I donate physical items such as yearbooks, sports or band items, or any other memorabilia?

LSAA has a storage container that includes band "sails" (aka banners), yearbooks, uniforms, and other memorabilia.  Please email John Marshall if you wish to donate items.  Many of these are loaned out to various class reunions so they can share Loara's history and legacy at their events.
