Staying Trim

September 15, 2014 by Wes Mora (Register to contact)

I've been working out since the first day of freshman year, and officially have the same 32 waistline yet the training which keeps me @ the same average Body Mass Index (for my height and weight)is not kept or observed just from training. All of the years after graduation in 1992 have seemed to keep fellow alumni wondering? It may look as though the years have put on "the beer abs" but in actual situations bodily exercise can man size life to anyone educated in the 145lb. weight class, which can easily turn to a morbid, stagnant or basically spread to atrophy, and no one deserves wasting the days away unfit to train.

For all William Allen and Allentown High School Alumni.....We need your help!
The William Allen Alumni Association will be marching in the parade to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Allentown. We should be the biggest part of the parade because anyone, who is anyone, must have graduated from William Allen. Let's show our colors and our pride for William Allen High School. The Dieruff Alumni Association is working hard to beat us out of being the biggest alumni association in Allentown. We can't let that happen. Tell your friends; spread the word.
Saturday, September 29th, from 11AM, we will march from the Fairgrounds to PPL Plaza, followed by a festival until late afternoon. We need marchers, band members, floats, float makers, and people to "man" the alumni booth at the festival. What a great place for a class mini reunion. Contact me, Cathy Wick, at ***** if you can help, if you will march, or if you want more information.
