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 is only updated by information we receive from reunion directories,
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
’76 at 614-871-3373 or email@example.com. Although not required,
we do appreciate a donation to help with keeping the costume in
good shape & other expenses. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

North Hi Club & Women’s Alumnae Association Luncheons
– We believe that North is the only school 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
welcome new members.
