“It has been almost a year since thieves broke the locks at Santa Ana High School and tore from the walls several plaques that honored the school’s war dead, apparently to sell as scrap,” according to the O.C. Register.
The good news is that “School officials and alumni have begun raising the thousands of dollars they expect it will cost to replace the plaques. They want to have at least a few re-cast by the end of the year, maybe those that paid tribute to the former students who died in the two world wars.”
Santa Ana High School needs our help to raise the $8K to replace the plaques.
Santa Ana historian Guy Ball is asking residents to “please consider sending them a check for any amount — $20, $5, $100, whatever you can spare. In numbers, we can help with whatever we can send.”
Be sure to pass the word to all Santa Ana High School alums!
