I would like to take a moment of your time to update you on a few financial developments with Glassmen Alumni Association.

First, I am thrilled to announce that we raised $1,710.68 at the All Star Review, on June 22nd. This amount includes funds raised from the 50/50 Raffle, Alumni Swag Sales, Straight Donations, and a donation from DCI for providing amazing volunteers. We had a great time at the show, and thank you to everyone who gave their time to help. It was wonderful to see so many Glassmen Family members together in one place again.

Second, we have now raised enough money to keep our memorabilia in storage for at least 2 full years. These funds will allow us to keep our historical items together & safe until we figure out the next step. This is an important achievement, and we thank everyone who helped us reach this goal.

Third, the Administrators of CorpData have graciously waived their fees for us. This means that the Glassmen data will remain active in their database, but we do not have to pay for it. We will be able to contact you via email by using their database, so please keep your CorpsData account updated with your contact information.

Finally, it was announced about a month ago, but if you haven’t heard… the Glassmen Alumni Association is now officially a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization! This was a very long process with the IRS, but it’s finally complete and it’s a HUGE step for us as an organization. All donations are now tax-deductible, and we can begin major fundraising.

Please keep an eye on the Glassmen Alumni Association & Glassmen Experience Facebook pages for upcoming information & events. Information & Alumni merchandise can also be found on our websites at www.glassmenalumni.org & www.glassmenexperience.com

If you have any questions or concerns about the financial aspects of the Glassmen Alumni Association, please feel free to contact me directly. You can reach me on Facebook, or you may email me at treasurer@glassmenalumni.org

Thank You so much for all of your continued support. If we work together, we can achieve anything.

Liz Von Allmen, GAA Treasurer

timedonationHave you ever wondered how you can help without having to dig into your wallet?

Maybe you WANT to give back, but are strapped for cash at the moment.

Do you miss those people you use to march, volunteer or teach with, and wish you could see them again?

What a great time to reconnect with your past by volunteering to help the Glassmen Alumni Association at the All Star Review on June 22, 2014, at Bowling Green State University. While we can’t guarantee you’ll have time to watch any performances, we can offer you a chance to reconnect with friends and family of your past while helping DCI present an awesome show.

Sign up for a specific job today! DCI has agreed to provide us with a generous donation toward our storage fees, which will go a long way toward helping us keep our historical items safe.

Stay tuned for details on an after-show party! (We must be able to fully staff the show before we can plan this event.)

G-WestAs you may already know, the Glassmen Alumni Association is renting a storage unit holding a significant amount of memorabilia donated by the Glassmen Drum and Bugle Corps.

Storage is roughly $75 per month, plus we have several measures that need to be taken in the future for safely storing items long term. Please visit our Glassmen Experience website to view items we are selling to help offset this monthly cost.

For $25, you can purchase an 8×10 print of the watercolor painting of G-West that alumni parent Dianna Porter created for our alumni auction. This beautiful print provides a nice keepsake of the Glassmen, while helping the Glassmen Alumni Association maintain the archives. Your help is greatly appreciated!
