On Nov. 12, Ken­nard Alumni hosted its an­nual fund raiser at the newly re­stored Ken­nard High School Cul­tural Her­itage Cen­ter — a night of fun, food, re­mem­brances and a silent auc­tion that was en­joyed by all.

This year’s event also cel- ebrated 80 years of Ken­nard High School’s ex­is­tence and the com­ple­tion of the restora­tion project’s fi­nal phase. Old friends rem­i­nisced and mem­o­ries were cap­tured for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy. But none of this would have been pos­si­ble with­out the help of our friends and neigh­bors.

So, the Ken­nard Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion says thank you to all of our spon­sors, donors, auc­tion con­trib­u­tors, ad­ver­tis­ers, paid guests and vol­un­teers for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in this year’s event. We of­fer a spe­cial thank you to Ch­e­sa­peake Pub­lish­ing for help­ing to pro­mote this event.

Your gen­eros­ity helped to raise al­most $15,000 for the Ken­nard High School Cul­tural Her­itage Cen­ter and the alumni’s schol­ar­ship fund. This project will pro­vide a mul­ti­tude of ed­u­ca­tional, cul­tural, recre­ational and resource re­fer­ral pro­grams for the youth and adults of Queen Anne’s County.

Once again, thank you for help­ing to bring this dream to re­al­ity.
