Classic Car Show Transforms AHS Campus into Art Colony

More works of art than just a body, engine and four wheels, the 100-plus classic cars that participated in the 7th Annual AHSAA Car Show transformed the Anaheim High campus into an art colony.

A large group of attendees enjoyed the Oct. 21st AHSAA 7th Annual Colony Classic Car Show. The classic cars, student performances, music, food and much coveted art trophies created by Car Show Chairman Clint Stark added to the show, as well as an opportunity drawing and silent auction with an assortment of classic prizes.

The Colony Classic Car Show also caught the attention of student video producers and a drone pilot. Click here to view.

2013 Anaheim Halloween Parade

Anaheim High showed plenty of “Spooktacular” Colony Spirit and Pride in the 2013 Anaheim Halloween Parade. The AHS line-up included Anaheim Performing Arts Conservatory students as “Zombies on Parade”. They lurched their way down Broadway from Manchester to Anaheim Boulevard, providing scary entertainment for the thousands of spectators who lined the parade route.

Another parade highlight was the newly formed AHS Alumni Band and Color Guard. The 30-plus member group gathered for regular practices before taking to the streets for the annual parade. The group has raised several thousand dollars for the current Colonist band.

The Anaheim High Cheer Squad, with beloved Clem Colonist mascot, provided plenty of pep for the parade. The Anaheim B.R.O.S., a group of students who band together to provide community service and inspire their peers to pursue higher education, served as banner carriers.

Also representing Anaheim High in the parade were Diane Rodriguez ’77 as Connie Colonist; Steve Valdez ’79 and Jim Olenick ’76, who created a “Big A” float; and Janet Brown ’77, Cynthia Roybal ’73, Debbie Vidana ’76, and Sallie Vravis ’63, all line-up chaperons.

Colonist VIPs who joined the line-up included AUHSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Novak, an AHS Class of ’71 graduate; AHS Principal Dr. Anna Corral; AHSAA President Gerald Woodward ’59; Elmer Thill, a 99-year-old Colonist from Class of ’32; and AHS Homecoming King and Queen Oscar Garcia and Daisy Dorado. The Colonists VIPs were convened through the parade by Andy Ersek in his ’66 red Corvette; Mac Burke, 1953 MG; Bill Utter, red Mustang; John Dade, ’75 burnt orange Mustang; Doris Trenary, ’63 Chevy Nova. Another featured vehicle was the 3rd Annual Colony Classic Car Show Winner, a ’56 VW Bug owned by Rick Litchie.
