The Clear Spring High School Class of 1957 will hold its 55th class reunion Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Clear Spring American Legion building starting at 5 p.m.

All class members and spouses are invited to attend. Several teachers and former principals will also attend.

A buffet-style dinner will be served.

The reunion committee encourages all classmates to make reservations by contacting Pat Hull at 301-842-2940 or Frank Carpenter at 301-252-5800.

‘Courageous’ to be shown

Hilltop Christian Fellowship will show the movie “Courageous” Friday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. The movie is a must-see for families. In a culture that is becoming more and more desensitized to violence, “Courageous” adds some sensitivity.

 Doors open at 6 p.m. for snacks before the movie. The church will also show a child-friendly movie. 

The church is at 12624 Trinity Church Drive in Clear Spring.

Did you know?

Did you know that back in the good-old days, glassmakers could not make big pieces of glass?


You used to be able to tell the age of a house by the size of its windows.  That’s why a house had nine panes over nine panes and so on. The newer the house, the fewer panes that a window would have.

Of course, this no longer holds true because people like the look of many panes in the window so even a new house can have a lot of panes. I guess the old saying, “Everything that was old is new again” is true.
