When former Hagerstown Mayor Steven T. Sager is roasted Thursday night, his 12 years in office will be fair game.

While it's probably unusual for a former mayor to be roasted, Sager is an unusual former mayor, said Fred K. Teeter Jr., executive vice president of the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, which is hosting the event.

"Twelve years in office is quite an accomplishment for any elected official these days, given the mood of the electorate," Teeter said.

NBC 25 weatherman Lou Scally will be master of ceremonies.

As of Tuesday, only about 50 people had signed up to attend the roast at the Four Points Hotel on the Dual Highway, according to chamber officials.


The roast was scheduled for June 26 before officials realized many local elected officials would be out of town this week at the Maryland Municipal League conference in Ocean City, Md., Teeter said.

Reservations can be made until noon on Thursday by calling the chamber at 301-739-2015. Cost is $28 per person and includes dinner at 7 p.m.

At Sager's request, proceeds from the roast will go to Margaret Washington to help pay for a trip she organizes every year for local youth.

This year's trip is to Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., on Aug. 2.
