History Club members list available

April 24, 2012|Cheryl Weaver | Around Clear Spring

Richard Snyder, longtime adviser to the Clear Spring High School History Cub, has worked hard to compile a mailing list of former History Club members. 

To date, the list has more than 1,100 members’ addresses.

A mailing was made two weeks ago. If you were a History Club member when you were in school and did not receive a mailing, call Snyder at 301-766-8082 and one will be sent to you.

If you did get your mailing, be reminded that there is still plenty of room left on the October alumni tour to New York City. Get your group together and mail back your reservation/deposit form or call Snyder at the school.

Did you know?

Did you know the day after the death of President Lincoln was declared a National Day of Mourning? Henry Harbaugh, a professor of Theology in Mercersburg, Pa., addressed the residents of Clear Spring.  His discourse was called “Treason and Law.” The audience was so moved by the speech that they had it printed into a small booklet.


Happy birthday wishes go out to Chloe Weaver, who turned 10 years old on April 20 and Chase Weaver, who turned 8 years old on April 23.  Happy birthday, guys!
