Class of 2015 extends a "thank you"
Fort Plain Class of 2015 would like to extend their gratitude to Al
and Linda Wainwright for a generous donation.
It was a year ago at a class fundraiser when
“Big Al” approached class advisors Melanie Pombrio and Sue
Summerfield about working together to benefit the students in the
class of 2015. Al and Linda have been hosting classic car shows
throughout the area for over a decade and through a mutual contact,
Diane Empie, the couple asked if the class would be interested in
helping at some of their events and in return Al and Linda would
donate the proceeds from their functions.
It was a huge surprise when a year later, at
the pancake breakfast fundraiser where the first connection was
made, when Al and Linda presented a check for $1,000.00 to the class
of 2015. Class advisors, class officers, student council
representatives and members of the class of 2015 were there to
receive the generous donation. The class of 2015 has decided to use
this donation to purchase sweatshirts for the class members and
would again like to say “thank You” to Al and Linda for making this
