2017 REUNION COMMITTEES – Don’t forget
to check with PBAA to see if classmates on your lost list are in
our database. Contact Elaine Siens Botkin ’74 at 614-263-3471
and she will send you a list of the information we have from your
year. There is no charge. All we ask is that you return the favor
by sending us a copy of your updated class list. By working together
we can reduce costly returns. It also helps Polar Bears locate each
other! We only send complete class lists to reunion committees,
but if they are in our data base we are able to supply addresses
on an individual basis to members, unless “that someone”
has requested otherwise. However, this list I can only updated by
information we receive from reunion lists, at North on the Fourth
and our membership. We would be happy to come to your reunion with
North merchandise. It always adds to the fun and it helps everyone.
You can’t lose. Contact our sales chairman, Jackie Batt Wilson
’59 at 740-967-8367. If you want our polar bear to visit your
reunion contact Christy McCoy Kirtlan at 871-3373 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although not required, we do appreciate a donation the help with
keeping the costume in good shape & other expenses.

in the country to have three separate alumni groups PBAA, the Old
North Hi Club (men)and the North High Women’s Alumnae Association.
What is even more amazing, everyone gets along and cooperates with
each other. Many people belong to two of the organizations. Both
ONHC and NHWAA hold bi-monthly luncheons at the Clintonville Women’s
Club, located at 3951 North High St, The men meet on the second
Thursday and the women on the third Thursday in January, March,
May, July, September and November, at 11:30 a.m. There is always
an interesting program and great fellowship. The costs of the luncheons
are women $16 and men $17. Reservations MUST be made by members
by the Wednesday of the week before the luncheon with checks made
payable and sent to the individual association. Please state the
year of your graduation on your reservation. All three alumni groups
