There will be photos and memorabilia from the 1964 and 2010 championship teams, with time to mingle, reminisce and celebrate for the evening. Team members and their families, coaches, school officials, local elected officials, including local school board officials and media members, will be on hand.
There will be a presentation of championship rings ceremony and an unveiling of a photo of the 2010 State Championship Team. A special presentation will also be made to the 1964 team members.
Local businessman Jim Rice is heading a donation drive for anyone wishing to contribute to this event. Several Blue Eagle fans have expressed an interest and have already made donations to this cause. Please contact Rice at 455-2872 or PO Box 487 New Martinsville if you have any questions.
This event is not only a celebration of champions, but an appreciation from the team and coaches for the support the team has received from our local community and businesses. Please come and be part of this special night.
