CLEAR SPRING — The Clear Spring High School Class of 1963 recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.

To kick off the celebration, the class presented its alma mater with a check for $3,900 on May 31 to purchase 10 iPads. 

One week later, the class was recognized as the “honor class” at the Clear Spring High School Alumni Association dinner, where it made a donation of $3,263 to the alumni scholarship funds.

The high point of the reunion events was a dinner on June 14 at the American Legion in Clear Spring. 
Class President David Baker served as emcee, and Class Treasurer James Reger gave a financial report. 

Hors d’oeuvres and three cakes were made by several of the women classmates. The main course was catered by Ernst Market.

Several teachers also attended as guests of the class. 

Class adviser Phil Poffenberger and his wife, guidance counselor James Manuel, English teacher Dorothy Sites and sixth-grade teacher Barbara Allison Gaddis and her husband were in attendance.

In addition to a photo gallery by Judy Burgan and scrapbook by Charlene Bragunier on display, a 29-page memory book was prepared by James Reger and given to each classmate and faculty member at the dinner.

The week’s activities culminated June 15 with breakfast at a restaurant in Hagerstown.

Classmates came from California, Oklahoma, Florida and North Carolina, as well as from Maryland.

The Class of 1963 plans to continue its informal monthly lunches, a tradition that began after the 45th reunion.
