On Sunday, July 8th we will celebrate the for 11th time a reunion of folks who remember and savor the fun times at Beltsville Shell.
In 2002 as I came to closure in the writing of the book, "Beltsville Shell: You Are What You Drive", I wanted to have time with many of the characters of the book to be sure that I got the stories right. The first Beltsville Shell Reunion consisted of only seven guys, all of whom were featured prominently in the book's stories.
The gathering of close friends from so long ago grew into annual reunions that have grown in size and enjoyment. Like last year this year's the reunion is being hosted by Tom and Bonnie Hontz. I am looking forward to seeing these wonderful life-long friends and reliving the fun times we had in our youth.
