To make a donation, check out

Ah, the season of love is quickly approaching, and you know what that means, don't ya'!?!? That's right; the Crooms AOIT Alumni Community Scholarship fundraising drive is officially in full swing. And, with Valentine's Day occurring in just over two weeks, there is no better time than the present to show your high school appreciation by giving a present to our scholarship fund. Not only will you be supporting your fellow Croomies by allowing us to continue to offer one Crooms senior a scholarship, but you will also being adding a little extra love to your donation through our matching donation program. All donations, no matter what the size, will be matched by a 25% "love tap" (matching donation), courtesy of an anonymous donor. Donations as small as the price of a box of chocolates are encouraged and those as big as the price of a new Lexus will be accepted!

During this season of romance, help spread the love, and support our scholarship program, by making a donation. All donation sizes are acceptable. In order to qualify for the 25% matching (every $1 donated will be worth $1.25), donations need to be completed by 11:59PM Valentine's Day 2010. The total aggregate match is not to exceed $100 (i.e. all donations will be matched until $600, including the match, is reached during the specified calendar period).

Adding Photo Gallery Function

Just a quick update that the site will now have a photo gallery portion. Users will be able to add their own galleries and view the galleries of other users. The main goal of the photo gallery function is to allow a widely range of content to be added to the site, especially when it comes to events like group gathers, teach-in days, reunions, and so forth. The first actual gallery will be added in the next day or two, and will feature pictures from the 2009 Teach-In Day.

Any user can add or view the photo galleries. Just go to or just put your mouse over the "Community" tab.
