9th Annual Wayne Basketball Alumni Game

Hello!
Hoping everyone can make it out again for the 9th annual Wayne Basketball Alumni Game, which is set for Saturday, January 7, 2017,@ 11:00 am at the High School. Games and teams will be set up similar to last year so there will be time to rest and socialize in between games.

A $10 Donation will go to the Connor Burns Ideal Teammate Scholarship, established to honor the memory of Connor, who passed away in 2009. This donation will also help fund the Kyle Stewart memorial scholarship as well. Kyle passed away in 2014.

The hope is that many will join together to honor and remember both of these fine young men. Money will be collected that day.

Please respond as soon as possible to let John know if you will be there.
Text John Cotsonas at 585-737-fivethreezerofour.

This is helpful so he can have a general idea of teams before game day! Also, PLEASE pass this info along to any other basketball alumni- there are many others out there who may want to play or just come and visit with old friends!

2016 Wayne Soccer Hall of Fame Inductees

  • A.C. Capers
  • Mike Schneider
  • Glen Cone
  • Karen Wheeler

Hello everyone!! There are a few upcoming alumni events coming up:
Wednesday September 21st will be the Alumni Soccer Games. The Women will play at 6pm and the Men at 7pm. Cost is $10 and will include a t-shirt. We will start the games with the “older” (1950-2002ish) alumni playing first, so they old timers can get a few minutes in before the younger alumni can jump in. That way, we encourage all to come out and play.

We will have our 4th Wayne Soccer Hall of Fame Induction homecoming weekend on Saturday September 24th at halftime of the Boys Varsity game.

Following the homecoming game there will be a reception at Ontario Country Club for any alumni and friends to celebrate the hall of fame inductees. Appetizers will be provided. This celebration is open for friends and family of Wayne Soccer.

Looking For Contributors

For various reasons, we don’t have access to as many sources of information that we once did for this website.  So the following would be helpful:

  • Send info and/or links that would be appropriate Alumni News items.  Any news and info of interest to alumni. Start with “Contact>Submit News” on the menu.
  • Additional people willing to contribute and write the short Alumni News and Announcements that appear on the front page Blog.  It is relatively easy to setup other contributors on the new website.  Click on the contact link above on the main menu to let us know you are interested.
  • Reunion Info – Some people still come here looking for this.  If no one sends the info in, it won’t likely appear here.  You can submit reunion info at “Contact>Submit Reunion
  • Yearbook photos – we have a decent but limited supply of yearbooks, but they have already been heavily mined.  Many years are not represented.  Dust off those printer/scanners and send some pictures.  Worst case, try to use your phone camera.  You can submit a small number of photos (up to five) using “Contact>Submit Photo(s)
  • Current Wayne Sports notable news or events.  Many people still like to hear about the Wayne athletic teams, and though we probably can’t cover it all, occasional updates would be good to pass along here.  This can be passed along using the Alumni News submission link above.

If not sure, click on the contact link above on the main menu.  You can also use this email:  briand”at”waynealumni.org

Updates

Some progress on the website.  Completed the In Memory section, added a boatload of photos into galleries.  Still some more to do, but it is a good thing my internet is not limited by data caps.  One can now comment on posts, pages, etc, using Facebook or Twitter accounts, or provide a name and email.  The question will be – will we be able to fend off the onslaught of spam – I have added some tools to help, but we’ll see.
