AHS Band Reunion – AUGUST 25!!! RSVP NOW!!

From: Becky (Molitor) Pifer

(AINSWORTH_ALUMNI@yahoogroups.com)

Calling All Members of the Great Machine of Red and Gray 197?-1986 – ALL welcome – other years as well!!!

Do you remember all the fun times with the Ainsworth High School marching band? Band camp… night rehearsals at Mandeville… playing throughout the school halls before pep rallies… pre-game and half-time shows… our one-of-a-kind cadence. Come relive your memories and the people you made them with at the first Ainsworth High School Band
Reunion evening!! Whether you only played in the concert band, chilled with the jazz band, or twirled a flag in the marching band, you are welcome to join us.

Right now, we are planning on gathering for dinner somewhere in Flint, but we need to know how many people will attend before we make further plans. The reunion evening will be held:

When: Saturday, August 25, 2007

Time: 6 p.m.-?

Where: A place in Flint to be determined

Please RSVP by Friday, June 15 to Becky (Molitor) Pifer at Becky.L.Pifer@cmich.edu or Linda Detman at ldetman@health.usf.edu . When we have a rough estimate of how many people will attend, we will find a suitable restaurant in Flint for our group.

Please join us!

Sincerely,

Linda A. Detman (1982)

Becky Pifer (1981)

Michele Detman (1984)

Added Blog Site to Website

I finally had a chance to make some changes to the www.ainsworth1985.com website. I added the https://ainsworth1985.wordpress.com link to the front page of the site. My plan is to update the site with the information that I have received in the next couple of weeks.

Remember this site is open to anyone from the Ainsworth High School. We would love to hear what everyone has been up to. And if there are any upcoming reunions, you can use this site to pass along information.

Responses from 5.2.2007 E-mail

Well, I got about nine responses after I sent the e-mail out. So thanks to those people. I even got some from other people who went to Ainsworth.

If you are wondering why I have time to work on the website and the blog, it because I enjoy doing it. I have been working on the website since 2003. It started out with about five pages and it now has over 100 pages to it.

And the blog came about because the company where I work: ServerBeach (www.serverbeach.com), WordPress is one of our customers. So I get a chance to see what kind of services our customers have to offer and  get the AHS community talking to each other.

So I hope more people will take a look at the blog and use it to pass along information.
