Around Funkstown

June 02, 2009|By SUSIE HOFFMAN / 301-790-2413

Hello, June

And a beautiful start we are having to probably one of the most popular months of the year. So many things happen, and I would venture to say, the majority are of the pleasant nature.

School's out

In about 24 hours ... no more school for the summer. Yes, that's right, the last day of school is Wednesday and it is a half-day to boot. Get the refrigerator stocked and the chore lists posted and let's head into the summer break with enthusiasm and promise.

Soccer tryouts

If you're looking for something to keep the young lady in your house busy, why not consider the Hagerstown Soccer Club Freedom '97 U-12 girls soccer team. Tryouts for the fall 2009 and spring 2010 season will be held at the soccer club at 13311 Cearfoss Pike in Hagerstown today and Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. Tryouts are open to girls born between Aug. 1, 1997 and Dec. 31, 1998. The team will be competing in the Baltimore Beltway Soccer League and indoor at the Frederick (Md.) Sportsplex. For more information, call Dave Tennant at 301-491-5580.


Golf tournament

If you recall, I recently touted the South Hagerstown High School Alumni Association for its awarding of two scholarships.

Obviously, the group needs to raise the money somehow to keep these and other wonderful programs going.

The Alumni Association is teaming with the Sports Boosters Club to cosponsor a benefit golf tournament. The funds raised will help to support mentoring programs at the school, the aforementioned scholarships, team uniforms and equipment.

This year's tournament will be at Beaver Creek Country Club Thursday, June 11. There will be an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. It is a best-ball format. The entry forms to play are available at the main office at South High and at the pro shop at Beaver Creek.

If you are not so much a golfer but would like to help, for $10 you can get your name in the program and help a student with a scholarship.


Happy 24th wedding anniversary to my husband ... one year away from a quarter of a century! Good heavens!
