Thank you

A big thank you to all involved in the Denny Michael Memorial Alumni Baseball Game. It was a great success - with all proceeds going to the scholarship fund. More than 40 players, plus their families and friends, came out on the hot Sunday evening and had a great time of competition, fun and fellowship.

The Home Run Derby winner was Justin Saloom, Class of '99. Jim Hutson, class of '67 and current CSHS history teacher, served as the announcer. Al Albert, class of '72, was the "most senior" player in the contest.

The Michael family would like to thank Linda Shirley, Mark and Mandy Shives, Kathy and Donnie Simmons and Denise Reed for their help in organizing this event as well as all those who volunteered to help.

Class of 1965

The Clear Spring High School Class of 1965 is in the early stages of planning a class reunion. Please call one of these numbers if you are interested in attending: 301-842-2978, 301-842-3456 or 301-582-0806.

Did you know?

Did you know that if the Old National Pike could talk it might have some very interesting stories? Many presidents of the United States traveled on it to Clear Spring and on to Camp Harding. Many plush stagecoaches, freight wagons, covered wagons carrying families, and farmers driving their cattle and pigs used the old road.
