Outdoor Lab Foundation, Alameda alumni present donation to Lakewood elementariesThe conversation first began when planning started for the Alameda High School 50-year class reunion. A tight-knit class, they always look forward to getting together and this year they wanted to do their part in giving back to those in need. In honor of their class reuniting, they agreed there was no better way to show their support for Lakewood than by welcoming the Outdoor Lab Program in Jefferson County to their celebration with the goal of raising tuition funds for local schools in need.

Fun was had by all during the Alameda event, and many participated in the friendly competition of seeing which elementary school they attended could raise the most money by the end of the reunion. The event drew a lot of excitement and was successful in raising $2,258, which goes directly toward Outdoor Lab tuition for Lakewood students in need.

To celebrate this generous contribution, an official check presentation was held outside Alameda International Jr./Sr. High School on Tuesday, August 7. Principals from Alameda International and Deane, Belmar, Rose Stein, and Lasley Elementary Schools were in attendance; along with Outdoor Lab Foundation Executive Director, Shannon Hancock and Marketing Coordinator, Lindsay Clark; 1968 Alameda High School Class President, Ron Smith; and 1968 Alameda High School graduate and Lakewood City Councilman, Mike Bieda.

The alumni also gifted a limited-addition painting of Mount Evans Outdoor Lab by local artist, Julie Leidel, to Alameda International. The hope is that as students walk the halls and pass by the beautiful painting of Mount Evans, they’re reminded of the community’s continued support for not only Outdoor Lab, but the success of future generations of students as well.
