The Galion Alumni Association entered 2019 with high expectations for the organization in the Future. We have with open arms, welcomed new members into our fold with several accepting positions on the Board of Directors. We have already experienced the dividends of having these younger alumni stepping up to accept the challenge of renewing interest in the Galion Alumni Association.

Membership in 2018 reached 160 dues paying members, of which 85 were Lifetime Members. This year, three members chose the Lifetime Membership option and we thank them for their dedication to the Association. Most of our annual members are individuals or couples that maintain their memberships year after year. We would like to encourage those members that are local to participate by attending the monthly meetings and becoming a member of the Board of Directors or participating in the activities of the Alumni Association. There is always the opportunity for all to relay suggestions for activities that would appeal to you. Alumni Association information and activity updates may be found either on the Galion Alumni Association website or Facebook page.

Current alumni association members are Brian Treisch, president; Joe Kleinknecht, vice president; Steve Melchoir, treasurer; and Bill Durtschi, secretary; Karen Flowers, Nadia Oehler, Kelly Phelps, Sarah Wegesin and Meghan Tyrell.
