Still have openings for the June 25 golf tournament at Tumwater Valley Golf Course to raise funds for our scholarship program. The first 60 to sign up are assured of getting into the tournament. Deadline to sign up is June 18, 2016. Registration fees are $95/person or $380/team. Tournament includes team prizes, closest to pin, and longest drive for both men and women, golf cart, and a post tournament banquet at River’s Edge Restaurant (about 6PM). To sign up complete the registration form. Also if there are any alum who would like to provide sponsorship, please complete the sponsor form. This event is our primary fund raiser to fund scholarships and has been enjoyable to see alums of all generations. Golfing skills help but not necessary, we’re out there to have fun and support scholarships.
Tumwater Fourth of July Parade
Every year for the past 4 years we’ve participated in the City of Tumwater 4th of July Parade to advertise homecoming. This year is no different except that the City would dearly like to attract a band of some sort to participate. Both high schools and junior highs do not participate. I remember during my high school years how strong a force our band and choir programs were and how they could inspire community enthusiasm! The thought occurred that there might be some alums of yesteryear who might be interested in forming an “Alumni Band” to add to the parade festivities. If there are former band members who’d like to do just that, please contact Louisa Ward Shimamoto at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360)915-2205. THSAA will gladly provide Kelly Green T Shirts!
This year’s homecoming game will be October 14 against Aberdeen High School. We again will display our History Wall and also plan to provide a birthday cake to celebrate the 55th year of THS’s opening back in the fall of 1961.

Dear Thunderbirds and Thunderbirdettes, Class of 1965
It has been 50 years since we graduated from Tumwater High School! A vote was taken at the great 45th reunion to determine if another casual format was desired for the 50th or a more traditional multi-day formal reunion. Vote was overwhelming to have the exact same thing at the same locale, Columbus Park on Black Lake, 5700 Black Lake Blvd SW., Olympia, WA 98512.
We will be flocking to the park and Kitchen #1 on Saturday, August 22, 2015, from 3:00-7:00
This facility, by the way IS handicap accessible should your knees be shot or your wing broken! The park charges $7 to roost your vehicle. At our quarterly Thunderbirdette Brunch we voted to provide Rental of the park, Plates, Napkins, and Fine Plastic Ware and to again have a Potluck feed. So please fly in with your to-die-for dessert, marvelous main dish, or scrumptious salad. You will need to bring your own beverages and while there is LOTS of room at the picnic tables under the giant roof, if you want a lawn chair, better tie that onto your vehicle too! We hope to see you at this fun event where we can kick back, mingle, relax, and talk about “remember when”!
