2017 Member Mixer “A Family Affair”

Thanks to the support of the Anaheim Hofstetter Family, the AHS Alumni Association 2017 Membership Mixer was a resounding success. Fun, as well as financial rewarding, the June 9 event was enjoyed by a crowd of Colonists who filled the backyard of Barry and Cathi (Soden) Hofstetter’s Anaheim estate home.

The Americana-themed party was also an opportunity for a pre-Flag Day “Salute to Anaheim High Fallen Heroes and Colonist Veterans.”

It’s not too late to join the AHSAA for the 2017-2018 membership year. A Legacy (Lifetime) membership is also available.  Click here for the AHSAA Donor Form.
