NBHS Alumni Assn. Dinner & Golf Outing Report 2019

Left: Alumni Scholarship winners and MC Sue Miklovic…

The North Baltimore Alumni Association would like to thank everyone who helped with and attended the 2019 Alumni Banquet. Over 150 former classmates, teachers, spouses, and friends enjoyed dinner at the North Baltimore American Legion, visiting and catching up with classmates and friends.

The school crest that is still being used today was created by the Class of 1969, who celebrated their 50th year class reunion Saturday evening. Peg Trout represented the class and explained the meaning of the school crest and what each symbol represents. The class had previously raised funds and had planted eight trees on the north side of the middle/high school property in memory of deceased classmates. A check for another three trees and a plaque listing each 1969 graduate was presented to Superintendent Ryan Delaney. The plaque will hang in the hallway at NBHS.

NB Alumni Scholarship winners were Sierrah Johnson and Christina Morales

GOAL REACHED!!! Virginia Theater Marque Getting Paint Job for 40th GOST

UPDATE – July 25! Sprucing up Downtown NB – we all will benefit…

LOOKIN’ GOOD! (from Village Historian Bonnie Knaggs)

UPDATE – July 25 – Bonnie reports the $750 goal has been achieved! Thank you to all who donated!

Over half way to the goal of $750 for painting the Virginia Theater marquee.

Even though the goal of $750 has not been reached, it was decided to go ahead with the project so that it would be done before the 40th Good Ole Summertime Day this Saturday, July 27.

On the ladder is John Kruse, the painter, who is doing a super job of “bringing the marquee back to life.”

NB Village Historian Bonnie Knaggs and downtown business owner and promoter Roxie Emahiser, have taken on the funding with faith that the goal will be reached.

THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED TO THE PROJECT.

For more information, or to make a donation, call Roxie 419-889-8923 or Bonnie 419-257-7315. (photos by Bonnie)
