Aug. 8 Town Hall Meeting Summary

According to Bill Cook (edited by JP Miklovic) “Saturday’s North Baltimore Town Hall style meeting at the Village Park went very well!”

According to Bill Cook (edited by JP Miklovic) “Saturday’s North Baltimore Town Hall style meeting at the Village Park went very well!”

“The 15 folks were there had a great discussion about having community events (festivals) and it was a great discussion! Everybody went away with homework…”.

“Our downtown and village park are user friendly for festivals, food vendors, etc.

When the renovations on the 200 block of N. Main Street are completed, the set-up will be a bit different, but it will still work for G.O.S.T. and other events.

The Park is just as user-friendly for events but is more subject to water problems in the event of rain. There are many pluses to each location and very few negatives.

The next COMMUNITY meeting will be Saturday, Sept. 5th, NB Village Park, 8:00 AM. Shelterhouse #3.”

Consumers who have any red, yellow, white, and sweet yellow onions under these labels, or who cannot tell if their onions are from Thomson International, should immediately discard these products and disinfect any surfaces that came into contact with the onions.

‘Rona Claims Another Victim – GOST 2020

Dear Community of North Baltimore,

It is with regret that we announce the North Baltimore Area Chamber of Commerce will be canceling the Good Ole Summertime Festival for 2020.

We know you are focused on the here and now—and the new future. We share this mindset. While we wish we were in the final preparation mode for Good Ole
Summertime Festival 2020, we are now diligently working on creating new channels to support and strengthen our community today.

In tandem with that, our team is envisioning the 2021 Good Old Summertime Festival to adapt to changing norms.

North Baltimore is a powerful, resilient community—a community that’s built on passion, that’s resourceful in the midst of change, and that supports one another.

We invite you to join us in any or all of the conversations and plans to connect and grow this festival for future years. You are always welcome to have a seat at this virtual table.

Stay well and stay strong as we prepare for the future.

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
