McClary to speak at father-son banquet

Lt. Clebe McClary will be at the Father-Son Banquet at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 16, at Maugansville Bible Brethren Church, 17904 Binkley Ave. in Maugansville.

McClary suffered the loss of an eye and an arm, and was told he would never walk again after being critically wounded in Vietnam in 1968. He never lost his determination, dedication and courage to overcome his circumstances. He is the living proof that with the right attitude all things are possible.


“Clebe is a man who represents all that is good about this country, one of our best,” said the Rev. Billy Graham.  

Tickets cost $8 for adults and $5 for ages 12 and under. Call 301-791-8101 to get your tickets.

Thanks to those who remembered vets

The Maugansville Ruritan and the Maugansville Historical Society would like to thank those folks who placed flowers at the War Memorial on Memorial Day. They were very pretty and very much appreciated.

It shows that we have NOT forgotten our veterans. The vases will be kept at the Ruritan Club and may be picked up if needed or stored until the next time.

Allison Martin attends leadership seminar

Allison Martin, a sophomore at North Hagerstown High School, was nominated to attend the HOBY program by counselor John Gest. To be nominated, students must be seen as leaders within their high school and in the community. Only one student per school can be nominated.

Nearly 200 diverse sophomore student leaders representing all Maryland counties attended the 34th Annual Hugh O’Brian Youth Maryland Leadership Seminar at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md., on May 24 to 27. This four-day seminar brought together a select group of students to interact with distinguished leaders in the business, governmental, and educational arenas to discuss relevant present and future issues.

The goal is to provide a stimulating forum for HOBY ambassadors to learn more about the American incentive system and the democratic process, while gaining a broader understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development. Topics for discussion included global education, volunteerism, media literacy, entrepreneurship, world hunger, goal-setting, and leadership and motivation.

Following the seminar, ambassadors were challenged to return to their respective cities and participate in community service projects.
