September 23, 2017

At our lunch last month there was discussion about having a reunion this fall.  The Reunion Committee got right on the task of finding an available date. We will have a one-day event on Saturday, September 23, 2017. There will be a social hour followed by dinner at Bellefonte Country Club. Time, menu, and cost will be forthcoming after a meeting with the social director at the club...we will keep you informed as information is available. It has been three years since our last reunion, and we hope that many will take advantage of this opportunity to join in and have a good time of fellowship with classmates.  Make plans now to attend!  Let us know as soon as possible if you will be attending so we can finalize plans with Bellefonte Country Club.  Either reply to this site by going to Guest Book and sending an e-mail, look on Facebook page under Classmates AHS 1959 and reply there, or send e-mail to    (David Castle)   (Charlene Wade Cooper)

Go to 'Guest Book' and e-mail us the change.


A reminder......

The Putnam Stadium Restoration committee will be selling bricks that will be placed in the Donor’s Corner around the Tomcat Statue. It’s the opportunity for the Tomcat fan to have their name, a family member’s name or even a business permanently etched at the historic stadium.

Phase I of the overall two-phase project, as approved by the Ashland School Board, was completed last year in time for the start of the 2014 season.

Phase 2 included the Donor Wall/Commemorative Brick campaign as a core fundraising effort.

Local artist Denise Spaulding’s rendition of the Donor’s Corner gives fans a chance at what the effort will look like at the historic stadium.

“We’re excited about the prospects of this fundraising effort,” said Greg Jackson, the chairman of the restoration committee. “Denise has given us a vision of what it looks like and I’m sure every Tomcat fan will want to be part of it. Whether you were a player, cheerleader, in the band or simply cheered from the stands, it’s a chance to give back to a place that’s given us all so much for the past 78 years.”

The Donor Wall has four categories:

-Tomcat Touchdown Club ($10,000 or more)


-Tomcat Paws Club ($1,000 to $4,900)

-Tomcat Pride Club ($500 to $999)

For a donation of $100 or $175, fans can have a brick placed in the Donor’s Corner with an inscription that the participants choose (name or family name, years played, etc.).  Additionally, along with the donation for the commemorative brick, participants will receive a miniature replica brick with an inscription.

“It’s a great keepsake for whoever is making the donation or even a good Christmas present for the Tomcat fan in your life,” Jackson said.

Here are the cost for the bricks:

-$100: 4x8 brick, three lines/20 characters each line (this includes spacing and punctuation)

-$175: 8x8 brick, six lines/20 characters each line (this includes spacing and punctuation)
