A packed house at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center celebrated nine amazing inductees on October 21.
Master of Ceremonies, Tim Strachen, introduced each, as well as, our Honorary M Club Inductees and Distinguished Citizen Honoree.
Each Hall of Fame Inductee took the stage and shared memorable moments with the crowd including Allan Bunge’s memories of a bus trips and Marita Walton’s Irish brogue… few will forget her charming pronunciation of “her beloved Merryland.”
