  • 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 http://www.glassmenalumni.org & http://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

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

  • 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!

  • What is the current plan to reach out to more alumni and how can we help? (This goes for both facebook and some of our older maybe not so computer literate family)

  • Thanks, Gina.  I’ve seen the 990’s, but I think a lot of people are looking for the actual list of debts and statement of actual donations made thus far, itemized in all their glory. I’m just posting my questions […]

  • How often do you guys meet, and how quickly do you post the minutes thereafter? What kind of transparency can we expect from the GAABOD (i.e. results of fundraising efforts, donations received, etc.)?

  • Is the GAABOD working on getting a list of the corps debts from the GBOD so that we can know what all debt we are truly looking at? I think we can all agree that the biggest elephant in the room is the lack of […]

  • One big difference between this forum and Facebook is that I can’t like posts. That is a good idea, Kevin. Sharing profits with any other organization that is looking for similar ways to make money could always be […]

  • My only issue with pushing for recruitment is that I don’t want it to be “all for naught” situation. Some people (me included) take it very personally. If I bust my butt and find 20 more kids to sign up from my […]

  • I didn’t think about that, Kevin. Good point. Fortunately though, if you are right, we now have two organizations. So perhaps Gmen could run 2 and the GaaBod could run 2. Just thinking outside the box.

  • Sorry. I didn’t really read your post, David. I was responding to the first post you made on the other page referencing bingo before we were rerouted here. Lol.

  • I know nothing about running bingo but will help however I can. I do know how to kiss ass.  Any volunteers wanna go have a beer with me at the American Legion Post #265 and Elks Lodge #1734 at the January camp?  […]

  • Mine were 97-99 – but mostly because I’m biased, and of course those were the years I marched. The golden years were definitely memorable though!
