Walkersville High School - Class of 1997 Reunion and Alumni information

21.Apr.2022:I've uploaded the Walkersville High School Class of 1997 Senior Wills

20.Apr.2022:I've uploaded the Walkersville High School Class of 1996 Senior Wills.

13.Jun.2007: I've added Jill's photos to the WHS2007 Reunion Picture Gallery.

9.Jun.2007: WHS's Class of 1997 Reunion was held at Brewer's Alley in Frederick.  It was a great chance to meet up with old friends (and in some cases, their new husbands and wives!) 

Please send any photos you'd like posted here to baydenaddress.  If you don't hear back from me, it's likely that your message was too big... send me a plain-text message and we'll figure it out.  Thanks to Nicole and everyone who attended!

25.Feb.2007: Posted finalized plans for 2007 reunion.

19.Jun.2006: It's 2:30am and I'm cruising the web; I was thinking about AP English while reading Frank McCourt's "Teacher Man".  I ran into a new alumni site (see below) that has a few of us listed, and Nicole has started a thread on Classmates.com asking for reunion suggestions for next summer.

23.Dec.2005: It's been about 3,120 days since we graduated and I'm feeling nostalgic as I'm home for the holidays, so I plunked down my hard-earned 9 dollars for a URL that may or may not get used.  :-)

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT: WHS 1997 Graduates’ 10 Year Reunion

Saturday, June 9, 2007
8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Brewer’s Alley Restaurant and Brewery
124 N. Market Street

, MD 21701

Food & Drink:
Light fare and cash bar in private room

$25.00 per person, mailed to address below, POSTMARKED BY MAY 31, 2007
After May 31st, cost is $40.00 per person (Cash only) at the door

Questions you may have:

Q: Why do I have to pay $25 when we have a cash bar?

A: The class has no money! There is no secret bank account with Prom proceeds or goodwill donations to fund reunions. At this point, we need to cover the costs of the reunion and attempt to build up a reserve for future reunions. And really… $25 is rather cheap. Ask a few of your coworkers and new friends…this really isn’t an expensive reunion.

Q: How can I help?

Spread the word!!! Dig out old phone numbers and contact information and tell as many other ’97 graduates as you can! Many of our families have moved, which would make a mailing rather ineffective, so do your part by contacting some old friends!

Q: How will I obtain information about reunions in the future?

Our official site is www.whs1997.com http://ericlawrence.com/whs/. In the future, please refer to the site for reunion information.

Q: I have more questions or need more information?
