Oh, to remember those happy days at Aberdeen High School! That's just what the Class of 1963 did in a big way.
Bill Jacobs came into the Aberdeen Room Museum to tell us about the great time his is class had on the weekend of Sept. 28 and 29. Almost 30 classmates made it for all the festivities.
Class President Mike McCoy made all the arrangements. On Saturday, Sept. 28, there was a big social event at Ripken Stadium. Then, on Sunday, Sept. 29, the classmates had a picnic at Harford Glen.
Those who attended included: Mike McCoy, Mary Helen Osborn, Earl Cullum, Charlie Lawson, Jim McDonough, Dean Terry, May Maulden, William L. Jacobs, Dwight Pettit, Laura Wilkenson, Pat Frankolakis, Bill Dula, Joy Kregal, Jigger Ramsey, Darlyn Schaeffer, Jim Scotten, Joan Brinegar, Jo McLaughlin, Donna McFadden, Tony Stout, Richard Smith and Molly Cronin.
We appreciate being told that one of Aberdeen Room's recent newsletters, the "Aberdeen Museum Review" for September/October 2013, had some of the Class of 1963 in a photo of Miss Babka's third grade back in 1953-54. We're so glad you all recognized yourselves!
It's so good to know that so many graduates of Aberdeen High School still remain loyal to their alma mater.
The Aberdeen High Class of 1969 is planning a big event for 2014. It will be their 45th year after passing through the halls of Aberdeen High. We understand that the "State of Mind" will be on hand to entertain. There will be more in this column about this event.
The AHS Class of 1949 gets together at the Aberdeen Room Museum each month to plan its next reunion. You can call Ed Illick, 410-272-2165, to hear about their plans. Go 49' ers!
