Celebration_Slider

Please mark your calendars to attend the East High School ScarletCelebration on Friday, May 12, 2017! The event will be held again at the Iowa Events Center, the former Veterans Memorial Auditorium.The events we’ve held there have been huge successes with a growing turnout each year. Many classes are now having their reunions at the Celebration by reserving a table for their classmates and taking advantage of the opportunity to socialize, not just with their class, but with other classes.
We will again have heavy hors d’ouevres and beverages, along with a cash bar. The Silent Auction will be held again – so be sure to bring your checkbook or credit card!
For those of you that have landmark reunions next year (10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th,etc.), please let me know your plans so we can promote them on our website and via social
media. Please urge your classmates to attend the Celebration so your class is well represented!I would also like to encourage you to consider making a contribution to the EHS Scholarship
Fund. Many classes are pooling their resources and offer an ongoing endowed scholarship. The Foundation also has tax saving options – please contact us to get more details. These
scholarships help East High graduates achieve their dreams of higher education.

Questions? Feel free to contact me at julie@pcgmarketing.com; call or text me at 515-360-9176; or go to our website: desmoinesEHSalumni.com. Updates will be posted soon!
