Elkridge: Hunt is on Howard High alumni as fall reunions shape up

Are you a Howard High School alumnus of 2002? Or how about 1972 or 1962? Reunion news for you and your classmates follows.

Sabrina Oursler Clever is a physical education instructor at Patapsco Middle School and a 2002 graduate of Howard High. She is also organizing the Howard High Class of 2002 10-year reunion, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 13.

According to Sabrina, the location is yet to be determined. However, she wants to put the word out. If you are in the area, or still in touch with classmates that have relocated, please note and share Sabrina's email address at sabrina_clever@hcpss.org.

Make a note that Oct. 13 is Howard High School's Homecoming, so pencil in that date and plan to come out and roar for the Lions on their home turf before the reunion festivities.

In other Howard High reunion news, here are a few more parties being planned that I've noted prior, but in case you missed the details:

Judy Shehan Wheeler is coordinating the Class of 1972 40th reunion on Saturday, Oct. 13, 7 p.m. to midnight at Jilly's Bar and Grill, 10030 Baltimore National Pike, Ellicott City, 21042. Cost per person is $12 (with a cash bar on site); and an RSVP is helpful, so it's only $10 per person if you register ahead of time.

Make checks payable to Howard High Class of '72 and mail your RSVP to Judy Shehan Wheeler, 6288 Montgomery Road, Elkridge MD 21075.

If you can't attend, send regrets via email to howardclassof72@gmail.com to help Judy build a solid contact database for future events. If you're in still in touch with others from the class who are out of the area, be sure to share the invitation.

The Howard High School Class of 1962 is gearing up for a 50th reunion this fall. If you are a '62 Lion, know how to find long-lost classmates or interested in helping out, contact Judy Pool Merson at 410-796-2838 or judymerson@yahoo.com.

For all our local budding junior chefs, here's a fun idea that was provided to me via press release on behalf of the Simon Kidgits Club, which plans a "Super Duper Mini Chefs" event at Arundel Mills Mall on Saturday, July 14, 10 a.m. to noon.

Hosted by the Arundel Mills Food Court, aspiring young cooks can explore cuisine through demonstrations and interactive activities. Kids can learn to play Nickelodeon's newest game — iCarly: Groovy Foodie.

Other activities include pretzel rolling with Auntie Anne's. Event attendees will also receive a special recipe card for spaghetti tacos and a Simon Kidgits Club plate.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to H.O.P.E. for All of Anne Arundel County.

And, speaking of H.O.P.E. for All, this grassroots organization will host its next monthly yard sale on Saturday, July 14, 8 a.m.-noon, 323 Roesler Road, Glen Burnie, in the Azar Complex directly behind Bowl America in the last court on the right.

The H.O.P.E. yard sales are always held indoors, so plan on shopping rain or shine.

According to Leo Zerhusen, H.O.P.E. founder, "We have lots of wonderful items for sale… great finds at good prices. Many items are in brand new to excellent condition. No junk or messy items; and we have pretty much anything and everything from A to Z."

Also, if the weather cooperates, they will have some larger items for sale that are usually on display outside. If you need additional information, or would like to inquire about donations, call 410-859-1297 or 410-766-0372.

That's all for this week, but keep those emails coming and let me know what's going on in your back yard.
