Saxon Alumni News!

Vol. 12

Welcome to the Loara Saxons Alumni Association e-newsletter! 

Hi Saxons,


Did you make it out to the ballgame? 36 Saxons, friends and family went to the Angel's game against Texas July 25th. We rented the huge suite and had a great time! Principal John Briquelet, his wife, Activities Director Paul Chylinski and his wife were our honored guests that evening.     


Even though the Angel's let the game slip away we all had a great time. Class years 1965 through 1985 were represented that evening. We will do this again next year and I hope to see you there.


School starts very early this year!  August 12th is the start date with school ending before Memorial Day.  This new schedule allows for Homecoming to be moved up to Friday, September 25th. We will be meeting after the game at Mama Cozza's for the after party.  If you are still in the Anaheim area join us and show these young Saxons some Saxon Spirit! We have a new football coach this year and we are hoping for a great season. This will be the 50th Homecoming by the way!


October 3rd the Class of 1965 is celebrating its 50th Reunion!! For more details see the article below. On October 18th we will be wine tasting at Lorenzi Estate Vineyards and Winery in Temecula. This event is limited to 25 people and we have already sold half the tickets. If you want to join us  click here to purchase your tickets. Don't delay because these are going fast!! 


On November 14th we are headed back to Linbrook Bowl for some more bowling fun!  We had a great time last time and some folks went back the next day to bowl on their own. Click here to purchase tickets for bowling.  There is no limit on the numbers who can join the bowling event.


Some of these events help us to raise money to give back to Loara's current and future students. So far we have helped fund a field trip, donated a laptop, and donated funds to help replace the girls softball outfield fencing. It is a start and we hope to do so much more and even one day start a scholarship fund.


We also need your membership dues to help with that. We cannot do this without your help. So, if you haven't sent in your dues yet or if you haven't joined the Association I urge you to do so as soon as possible. The easiest way to join is to visit our website at and click the membership button. There is a pay by credit card form and a printable main in form If you just want to donate some money to the Association you can click on the Saxon Traditions Store on our website, click the donate button and pay by credit card or mail us a check to PO Box 9397, Anaheim CA 92812-9397.


I hope to see you at an upcoming event!
