Freshman picture. Damn, what happened......?:)
My name is Beaman Cummings and I am a member of the Greenbrier Military School Class of 1963. I am trying to contact as many of my classmates as possible and also those who last attended GMS in 1963 as a PG or in any other grade. It has been 50 years since we said good bye to the ‘brier and is time for us to gather in the Greenbrier Valley to celebrate our youth and renew old friendships. The reunion will be held 17 to 20 October 2013. A complete listing of events will be mailed to you if the GMS Alumni Association has your correct address or you can find a listing of events posted on the gmsaa.org web site. Please make plans to attend , we would love to see you there. It is always a fun weekend with members from all GMS classes attending.
The 50 year class is responsible for providing the officer positions at the retreat formation on the 18th of October in front of the flag pole. I will need 1 Bn Commander, 5 Company Commanders, 2 Adjs and 4 for the flag folding detail. Please meet in front of the flag pole at 3 30 for a rehearsal. The formation with up to 200 reunion attendees will be at 4 45. The past two years the Greenbrier East High School Band has played at the formation and their Junior ROTC unit has provided a color guard for us dressed in GMS uniforms. We hope to have them back again this year. A picture of our class will be taken in front of the flag pole just prior to the retreat formation. Make sure you are there.
On Saturday morning during the General meeting of all the GMS Alumni at the Sharpe Center, all the members of our class who attend will be presented with 50 year GMS lapel pins. The Sharpe Center is located where the old tennis courts used to be and our GMS museum is attached as part of the building. The 2 brass cannons that used to be on the front part of the campus, now guard the front door to our museum. Additionally, the WW1 field gun that used to be chained to the flag pole is now part of a memorial plaza next to our museum.
Please make your plans to attend our 50th reunion. It only happens once in life. Do not let the moment slip away. Come back to Lewisburg. You will be glad you did. For questions or information, call me at 508-835-3774(H) or 480-510-7989(Cell). Email is, firstname.lastname@example.org
