JMF Fall Celebration, Friday, October 21, 2016, Caleb Mills
During the 2015-16 school year, Shortridge introduced a new partnership with the Joseph Maley Foundation (JMF). JMF is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit, established in 2008 with the mission, "serving children of all abilities." They work to build acceptance of individuals through seven programs that engender compassion and respect for the diversity of life.
As Shortridge continues its partnership with the Joseph Maley Foundation in the current school year, we are pleased to share that JMF will host their Fall Celebration on Friday, October 21, in Caleb Mills auditorium. This fundraiser provides a wonderful opportunity for SHS alumni to learn more about the Joseph Maley Foundation, the scope of their programs, and the collaboration with Shortridge while raising critical funds for JMF. Discounted tickets are available for Shortridge alumni--simply enter promo code

This event celebrates the programs, partners, and volunteers of JMF.
**The presentation begins in the auditorium at 12 noon, and afterwards Foundation programs will be showcased in classrooms.

**Tours also will be offered to explore Shortridge with current students serving as ambassadors.

SHORTRIDGE ARCHIVE & MUSEUM...
LOOKING FOR SHORTRIDGE ARTIFACTS & TREASURES
WHAT? -- ESTABLISHING THE SHORTRIDGE MUSEUM
of artifacts and memorabilia.
WHO: Volunteers are beginning to sort through and evaluate items in the collections of books, yearbooks, trophies and other Shortridge-related antiques currently
WHAT WE NEED/HOPE TO OBTAIN:
* Vintage SHS jewelry and accessories; e.g. class rings, vintage pin, class keys, brooches, etc.
* Vintage SHS clothing items: Letter sweaters/jackets, sports uniforms, ROTC uniform, senior cords, cheerleader outfits, etc.
* Original photographs of teams, events, dances, special visitors, etc.
* School trophies (not individual unless pre-1930)
* Vintage SHS artifacts; e.g. dance programs, correspondence of an historic nature, pennants, banners, signs
* Vintage scrapbooks and SHS-related videos
* Rare, unique, quirky, one-of-a-kind items.
WHAT WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING:
Due to limited space and the availability of digitized copies, we don't need:
* Yearbooks: we have duplicate copies for many years; the older yearbooks are in very fragile condition that should be separated and stored in special archival-quality cabinets where they would be better protected.
* The Shortridge Echo
* Newspaper clippings
We're almost certain there may be alumni and/or family of alumni who may still have items stored in an attic, basement, estate sales that could be added to this historical collection. If you have NON-PAPER items that might be included, send those items to: Shortridge High School, ATTN: Lori Armstrong, Partnership Coordinator, 3401 N. Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208.
OR Contact Charlotte Ottinger directly with questions regarding this project: 317-509-8577 or by email: COttinger@IUHealth.org Continue to check back for updates regarding our progress.
Or if you don't have any of these items, kindly consider a financial donation for our committee to purchase archival quality storage supplies and vintage display cabinets. These display cabinets can range upwards of several hundred dollars each. OUR
FINANCIAL GOAL: $5,000 OR MORE! We need to obtain several display cabinets and/or archival storage supplies to properly catalog years of Shortridge artifacts. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
