Arundel High Class of '88 to hold reunion


August 18, 1998|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Arundel High School's Class of 1988 is planning a 10th reunion to be held the weekend of Oct. 16-18.

The event will begin with a happy hour the evening of Oct. 16. The next afternoon, alumni are invited to Arundel's homecoming football game at the high school stadium.

A dinner dance will be held Saturday night at the Bowie Comfort Inn. A band called "Reagan Years" specializing in '80s music will perform. Sunday afternoon, reunion festivities will culminate in a picnic at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.

King Loving Brinegar, a member of the Class of '88, remembers Arundel High as a special place where close friendships were formed. She felt that the class of '88 was especially close.

When she and some friends started discussing a reunion, they wondered how to begin. They called their class' faculty sponsor, William Norris, who still teaches at the school. He reported that he had received calls from around the country asking about a reunion. He helped provide names for the group to reach.

Soon, a social committee began meeting to plan the reunion. Event organizers are Brinegar, Michele Truman, Veronica Antonelli Silver, Crystal Wills Door, Craig Boarman and Neal Kuraban.

About 200 graduates from the Class of '88 have registered to attend. For information, contact Brinegar at 410-729-1451 or at

Athletics under way

For those students still in high school, Saturday was the first day of practice for fall sports in Anne Arundel County public schools.

Early in the morning, cars started arriving in the school parking lots. Cross-country team members rubbed the sleep out of their eyes and set off running around the school grounds. Then, the football, soccer and field hockey athletes gathered to begin preparing for the sports season.

Another important part of preparing for Arundel High athletics is Meet the Coaches Night, scheduled for Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. Attendance is mandatory for at least one parent or guardian of any student planning to play fall sports. At the meeting, parents will learn what to expect from high school sports and get a chance to meet their kids' coaches.

For information, call the athletic department at 410-674-6500.
