Alliance College

REUNION 2016

2 MONTHS TO GO

 

We have less than two months until the 2016 Alliance College Reunion takes flight.  For those of you who have attended recent reunions, you know what terrific special events they are.  For those who have not attended for one reason or another, now is your time.  By popular demand the Reunion returns to the legendary Riverside Inn.  Previous management has regained control of the great old hotel.  The “Riverside touch” is back and the staff is thrilled to be hosting us once again.  Rooms are going fast so if you have not booked your room, do not hesitate.

The program this year will be familiar for those of you who have attended Riverside reunions in the past.  However, there will also be some great additions.  For instance, Cambridge Springs is celebrating its 150th Anniversary in 2016.  The town has been holding monthly events to commemorate this milestone.  During our Reunion weekend there will be a “History Of Alliance College” presentation in the Riverside ballroom. I don’t think any of us will want to miss.

Another change… As requested, the Alumni Meeting has moved from Sunday morning to Saturday morning. 

Whether it is your first Reunion or your fifth, I guarantee somebody will be there you NEVER expected to see and you will be happy you decided to come.  These events never disappoint. 

So mark your calendars, book flights, reserve rooms, contact your old friends and be sure to make your way to the Riverside for the weekend of October 7-9, 2016. 

Will we see you there?  I sure hope so!

ANNOUNCEMENT ON PASSING OF  

COACH TED HALUCH

February 4, 2016

It is with sadness that we have learned of the passing this morning in Cambridge Springs of an Alliance College family treasure, Coach Ted Haluch.  He was 90 years old.  The Alliance College family extends its heartfelt condolences to the entire Haluch family, and especially to Mrs. Haluch. 

Coach Haluch's tenure at Alliance touched five decades.  Although his name was synonymous with Alliance College sports, he was so much more than just a “coach.”   Along with his wife, Josephine, the two were like surrogate parents to the entire Alliance student body.  Coach Haluch was a mentor and life long friend to so many. 

Coach Haluch was a three sport letter winner at Alliance in the late 1940's.  In 1954, he returned to  Alliance as the athletic director and coach of three sports.  His most treasured years at the Eagle basketball helm came in both 1963 and 1965, when the Eagles became one of the strongest small college teams in the nation.  Both years he guided the Eagles to the NAIA National Playoffs in Kansas City, Mo. 

Coach Haluch not only served as Alliance's Athletic Director, but also served as Chairman of Pennsylvania NAIA District 18.  In the 1970's and 80's he was often referred to as the western Pennsylvania “Dean of Coaches.”  Through the years, Coach Haluch received numerous honors  including NAIA District 18 “Coach of the Year” awards, Meadville Area Sportsman of the Year, Erie Sports Hall of Fame inductee, and other plaudits.  As a testament to his stature not only at Alliance, several other colleges honored him with awards, most notably Gannon University, who inducted him into the University's Hall of Fame for his service to college athletics. 

On the occasion of his 90th birthday last year, alumni and friends from across the country returned to Cambridge Springs to honor both Coach and Mrs. Haluch.

Coach Haluch was also admired and respected in the community of Cambridge Springs.  He is fondly remembered as making the cozy Alliance Gym available for local youngsters on snowy Sunday afternoons, or the college's manicured baseball diamond for summer games.  His beautiful voice in the St. Anthony's choir, singing Polish hymns for weddings and funerals with his wife Jo will be forever remembered.

Coach Haluch will be sadly missed by the alumni and friends whose lives he touched.

Viewing will be on Saturday from 6:00 pm to 8 pm, Sunday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Van Matre Funeral Home.  Funeral Mass will be Monday at 10:30 am at St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church in Cambridge Springs, Pa.

Viewing will be on Saturday from 6:00 pm to 8 pm, and Sunday 2:00 pm to 6 pm at the Van Matre Funeral Home. Funeral Mass will be Monday at 10:30 am at St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church in Cambridge Springs, Pa.
