We had a fantastic afternoon on May 13/17 at our Second GB Alumni Re-Connect! Thanks to everyone for coming out and special thanks to volunteers Debbie Potts (’80) and her daughter, Kurt Roche (’78), Nancy Greer (’77), Claus & Shirley (Bellamy) Andreas (’69), Josie Audino (’67) and Patrick Niesink (’79) for all their help and to Principal Arlene Skull for helping make the event a success!
And extra special thanks to our ol’ teachers John Barsby (Math), Jim Ferguson (Math), and Bill Patterson (English) for joining us! Extra thanks “squared” to Mr. Barsby for serving as quizmaster for our more-fun-than-anticipated Reach for the Top game and guesting at our fascinating “Geeks Speak” break-out session! In the first of half of our RFTT game, Team Maryland prevailed 200-90 over Team Broadway, while in the second half Team Broadway won 160-100 over team Maryland. Click here to see the RFTT questions (sorry no answers, as we’ll use these questions again!).
Though our numbers were down a little bit — 41 alumni & 3 teachers – there seemed to be even more camaraderie and sharing of memories and laughs.
We’ll have some pics soon and if you attended, please post your comments on the afternoon.
We’re already planning for bigger & better next year — mark your calendars, tentatively we’ll go Sat May 12/2018 (date to be confirmed by the School Division in the Fall). See you all next year!
