Welcome to the official home page of the Clay High School, Oregon, Ohio, alumni association web site!
C.H.A.F.A. is the "Clay High Alumni & Friends Association".

Here is some info on C.H.A.F.A.:


We are dedicated people associated with Clay High School, Oregon, Ohio, reflecting on the past, experiencing the present and creating the future while having fun and contributing to the academic and personal goals of Clay High students. We provide the vehicle for carrying on the legacy of Clay High School.

Clay High Alumni & Friends Association is committed to providing a forum for people who are alumni and friends of Clay High School. By gathering to have fun through fellowship, this association will promote opportunities for Clay High School students to realize their academic and personal goals.

Our theme "fun raising" will contribute to fundraising and will help Clay High School sustain its legacy of excellence in educating students and prepping them for life. We will also help students advance academically and personally in the community through scholarship and personal involvement. 

What Does CHAFA Do?
Clay High Alumni & Friends Association sponsors two events each year. The Kelly Miller Circus was hosted in 2013 & 2014 and was a huge success. Hosting the circus replaced our Chopper Dropper fundraiser. With the tremendous support shown by our community we are bringing the circus back in 2015. Fund raising events such as this help us maintain our scholarships and pay for the publishing costs and postal expenses of our bi-annual Screaming Eagle publication.

Our second event is the all class reunion, appropriately named Groove in the Grove since it's held at Oak Shade Grove, in Oregon. This event lets alumni and friends enjoy a great time dancing and reminiscing. Not only does this function provide a place to meet old friends and make new ones, it is also a great place to hold YOUR class reunion. CHAFA takes care of the place, food, drinks and music. All you need to do is invite your former classmates!

Although the Groove is not a money making event, any additional profit is put back into CHAFA to use towards assisting individual organizations at Clay High School. So far we have purchased two display cases for trophies and awards at the high school. Additional donations have been given to the Crystal, The Eagle, Operation Graduation, Limelighters, the Korean and Vietnam Memorials at Clay, Cheerleaders, Athletic Boosters, Jazz Band, Academic Boosters as well as the care and keeping of the CHS Mascots. Donations have also been contributed to the Hank Spring Memorial Gymnasium.

CHAFA is also the organization that has recognized the superb accomplishments and contributions of Clay graduates and friends of Clay High School by way of the CHAFA Hall of Fame. Each year CHAFA accepts nominations and voting is held to select new inductees into the Hall of Fame.

Also we have an Oregon Fest parade entry featuring Eddy and Edna Eagle riding proudly in a Corvette.

CHAFA holds bi-monthly meetings at Clay. All are invited to join the committee and new ideas are always welcome. Become involved a lot or a little. You may contact Tammy Hughes Swartz, CHAFA President, at 419.693.0665, ext. 2044 with any questions, concerns, and meeting dates.

The Clay High Alumni & Friends Association would like to hear from alumni and or our friends who would like to join the leadership team of the association.  Presently the officers and associates have been leading our association for some 16 years. If you would like to be a leader or become more directly involved, please contact Tammy Hughes Swartz 419.693.0665, ext 2044. Our school needs your help!
