                                           Lewis Memorial Fountain HS Alumni Challenge

On October 11th, 2014, to help fund the restoration of the Lewis Memorial Fountain the Sigourney High School (SHS) “Class of ‘74” issued a fund raising challenge to other graduating classes in Sigourney and the surrounding area.  At their 40th Class Reunion dinner and reception, held at the Sigourney Golf Course club house, the class accumulated pledges for the Fountain restoration effort. Class members had come together for an evening of renewing friendships and refreshing memories. During the proceedings Jerry Wohler suggested that the class, gathered together as it was, had an opportunity to kick off a significant fundraising effort for the historic Fountain. Nearly everyone who grew up in Sigourney has some fond memory of playing around the fountain, enjoying the lights and the spray, or possibly walking by and enjoying the view with a date or a loved one. The suggestion was followed immediately by vigorous head-nods and noises of approval.

Jerry had no difficulty getting the pledging started and in just a few minutes the class had collectively established the initial watermark for Alumni Class donations. A challenge is issued to all graduating classes to meet or beat the Fountain Donation from the Class of ‘74. There are any number of ways to earmark donations as a collective response to the Memorial Fountain HS Alumni Challenge. All involve noting, with the donation, that it should be counted as part of a joint donation from the High School Class for your graduating year.  As always, donations should be made out to the City of Sigourney. Let’s see who wins!
