It got started at a summer 2014 wedding. High school classmates talked about Fort both then and now...their love of Fort prevailed and the process of starting a Foundation got started. THANK YOU JAY HALDEMAN ('81), ANNMARIE TAYLOR HALDEMAN ('83) and ANDY BERHOW ('81). It also started with two Class of 1975 alums who were planning a class reunion. They wanted to give back to their alma mater. THANK YOU KELLY CLICK CHRISTEL ('75) and JUDI THIESSEN BAILEY ('75). And then in the winter of 2014/2015...people got passionate about FVHS got together and really got the ball rolling.
We are a work in progress. UPDATE: We have partnered with the FOUNDATION FOR VANCOUVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS, a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible and and are earmarked for TRAPPERS4TRAPPERS and our FOUR PILLARS.
