Merriam Webster says that ‘Alumni’ is a plural form of all genders that refers to a person, or persons who have attended or graduated from a particular school, college, or university, and it also includes a person who is a former member, employee, or contributor.
Consequently, if you were a teacher, student, secretary, or worked pushing a broom, YOU need to be included in this Photo Event.
Please note: We have been GRANTED PERMISSION from the School Principal for this event!
There will be photographers on the second floor of the museum, and a drone will fly over taking pictures and videos. We must have some sort of organization for this activity, so here are a few GUIDELINES & RULES:
** THE HANNAH J. ASHTON SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED.There are plans to designate a day for a ‘Community Event’ that will be scheduled with a variety of activities, and you’ll be able to go inside on that day. Our Alumni Photo Event is strictly an OUTSIDE VENUE.
** The REYNOLDSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT will be notified so traffic issues are at a minimum. They are very helpful when we have the kids here for tours. And -- we want this to be orderly.
** NO PARKING IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL LAWN. We don’t have magic cameras that can photograph people through a car, and the short ones (kids) will be in the front. ALL children (recent students) will be on the sidewalk, so they are visible in the photographs.
** NO SIGNS PLEASE. This is a “People ONLY” event, and there’s no need to bring signs. Leave your politics, class designations, and grievances at home.
** NO LITTERBUGS ALLOWED! You had better not leave one speck of trash anywhere. Please don’t expect the volunteers from the Reynoldsburg-Truro Historical Society pick up after you!
** THE REYNOLDSBURG-TRURO HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM WILL BE CLOSED. The only people allowed in that building will be our photographers, the news media, and a few of our Board of Director Members.
** We are all here for the same reason; to HONOR HANNAH J. ASHTON!
** IN Case of RAIN – We will meet on Wednesday, June 7that 5:30pm
