Were you a member of a Frederick Sorority, Fraternity or other group
(Band, Science Club, FFA, Drama Club, or Dormitory Group?)
Have you had a Reunion of your Membership or Group?
If so, send me the pictures and a story so that I can commemorate that event here.

** Jeanne reports that this group of pictures was rescued before the 'end' of Frederick. While she was the photographer on some of them, there are others that she did not take and was merely the custodian of them these many years. Some of the images are scans from the school's newspaper, the "Merrimac"; now posted for all to see and enjoy.

The 2006 Reunion is now HISTORY.
If you were unable to attend you missed an opportunity not likely to
happen again anytime soon.

Attendance records from previous reunions were shattered with
people from all over the country and, yes, the World, too.
