This summer's Friday and Satur- day, June 25-26, 2004 Glenville High School Alunmi Association Reunion promises to be the best one yet. This ambitious prediction emerged during a February 6, 2004 exclusive interview of Alumni Association President Bill Gainer and Immedi- ate Past President Margaret Ann Miller Goodwin with the editors of The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder. Both of these committed and cre- ative GHS Alumni Association offi- cials confirmed this high potential for the 2004 Reunion which is currently being planned by a combination of dedicated local and out-of-county committee workers. Website updating Part of the reason for the improved reunion planning for this year is the updated Glenville High School web- site, President Bill Gainer relates with a voice of pride. "My brother, John, has assembled the latest and most inclusive alphabetical listing of gradu- ates to-date," Bill explains, mention- ing that any GHS alumnus or alumna can see if their best friend is listed in order to get an idea if they'll be attend- ing this upcoming reunion. In addition, John has installed some popular links on the website, opening up to Glenville High School's gradu- ates the latest information on the city of Glenville and Gilmer County, Glen- ville State College and Thomas and Irene Powell (the former president and first lady who the Association has made honorary graduates). Finally, there are several articles about GHS included, too, President Gainer adds to round-out the record.

Special honorecs For any class reunion to be success- ful, however, much "blood, sweat and tears" must go into its planning, re- lates Margaret Goodwin, a GlenviUe native who now lives in Ohio. "For the Fri., June 25 'Pow Wow' which starts at 6 p.m. in the Gilmer County Senior Center, we want to put together a display of all of the GHS Scholarship Recipients and, then, to keep it up over the years," she relays, stressing, "We're very proud of these Continued on page 4B THE OLD POST OFFICE WHICH IS NOW THE COMMUNITY CENTER, CA~.LED 'COMMUNITY SHOWCASE' FORMER GHS PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS AND CUSTODIANS A STOREFRONT WINDOW DISPLAYING GHS'S ATHLETES -- THE REUNION'S HONOREES Sec.
