"This year our class reached its 45th reunion date. This is quite a landmark for us," said Straub (SHS '68) "By our 50th reunion, we are hoping to reach a goal of $100,000 to give to the Salem Alumni Association. This is quite a bit of money, and it may seem ambitious, but our graduating class is committed to reach this goal. All of us are deeply committed to the alumni association and the great job they do in helping future graduates attain their dreams. Salem High School was good to us; it is our way of saying 'thank you' to all the administrators, teachers and coaches who prepared us for life," he said.
"Hairspray" is based on the 1988 cult hit film "Hairspray" by John Waters. Set in 1962 Baltimore, the story is about a plump teenager named Tracy Turnblad who dreams of dancing on a local TV show comparable to Dick Clark's American Bandstand.

set at Salem Legion Aug. 3
SALEM - The public is invited to a spaghetti dinner benefit for Brendon Whitman, 15, from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 3 at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 892, 496 Arch St.
Brendon, son of Bob and Kim Whitman, and grandson of Bonnie Rhodes and Alice Whitman, is one of about 12 people nationwide who have a rare disease called Immune Dysregulation Polyendocrinopathy Enteropathy X-linked. This disease forces Brendon to receive expensive treatments every four weeks. It has attacked his lungs, spleen and brain.
Proceeds from the benefit will be used for a test for Brendon which costs more than $6,000. The denial of the test by the family's insurer has led to an attempt to raise money to defray the test costs.
An account has been set up under the Bonnie Rhodes Benefit Fund for Brendon and she can be reached at 330-752-3700.
