volunteers to help in one or more of a variety of tasks. You can phone or

organize reunions; fold and stamp the quarterly newsletter; research and
write or edit articles for the newsletter.
You can work from the
comfort of your home and do not have to live in the immediate Washington
area for some tasks. Using a computer and being on the Internet are
helpful but are not required for many tasks.
We are always
searching for folks who either attended or graduated from
Western. We provide addresses for classes planning reunions and work with
reunion committees to locate people by phoning, researching marriage
records, and using internet searches. People love to be “found”, so this
is a satisfying activity.

programs and uniforms, art works, play & dance programs, sports and cadet
