Woodbridge Alumni Association to be formed
Woodbridge High School graduates are trying to establish a Woodbridge High School Alumni Association. It would include all Woodbridge High School graduates from 1970 until the present. Some classes have held class reunions, others have not. The association would hold a yearly banquet in the spring. All Woodbridge High School graduates would be eligible to attend.
Classes celebrating milestones (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, etc.) would receive special recognition.
Another goal is to establish a scholarship fund for children and grandchildren of Woodbridge High School graduates.
Anyone interested should send a note which includes name, address, phone number, year of graduation, and if you would be willing to help. Mail to Dottie (Breeding) Bauguess (Class of 1976) in care of Woodbridge Elementary School, P.O. Box, P.O. Box G, Greenwood, DE 19950.
