Booster Club plans event for high school alumni


August 19, 1998|By Bonita Formwalt | Bonita Formwalt,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WHILE MANY students are dreading the start of a new school year, Glen Burnie High alumni are planning a celebration of their years at the school. The Glen Burnie High Booster Club is sponsoring an alumni bull roast and dinner dance, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Oct. 10 at the Stoney Creek Democratic Club on Fort Smallwood Road.

The dinner will be open to all Glen Burnie High alumni, from the first graduating class to members of the Class of 1998.

The joint reunion was the idea of members of the school's athletic booster club, who were looking for a new fund-raising idea, said booster President Gary Falls. Falls was a member of the Class of 1974, and his wife, Donna, was a 1977 GBHS graduate. Their daughter, Amy, was a graduate from the Class of 1998, and their son, David, will be entering GBHS this year.

"Most reunions are for a particular [graduating] class. I'd go to my wife's reunion and not know anyone, and she would come to my reunion, and it was the same thing," said Falls.

Falls sees the event as an activity that different generations can attend.

"This way, the entire family can come -- brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, parents. They can come out to dance and have a good time," suggests Falls.

Members of the planning committee are Falls and his wife, and Barbie Lay, Sharon Pierpont and Terri Skipper. Guests are encouraged to bring yearbooks, class rings and other memorabilia. Prizes will be awarded for the most original memento.

Tickets are $20 and include dinner and dancing to music provided by Mike's Music Shop. Guests must be 18 or older.

For ticket information, call Falls at 410-760-2238; Lay at 410-766-4536; or Pierpont at 410-761-6693.

In other GBHS fund-raising news, the boosters are selling stadium blankets sporting the school's crest. The 4 1/2 -by-5-foot red and white blankets are emblazoned with "Home of the Gophers." The blankets sell for $40. All proceeds will benefit the school's athletic programs.

For further information, call Falls at 410-760-2238.
