DHS Alumni Shelter to be dedicated

DUBLIN – “What do you think?” asked Anthony Akers, director of Randolph Park in Dublin.
“It’s beautiful, it’s here, it’s built, and it’s wonderful!” said Jim Graham, a graduate of Dublin High School’s Class of 1960, and chair of the 2007 DHS All-Class Reunion committee.
The beauty and wonder that Graham speaks of is the new DHS Alumni Shelter, located at Randolph Park. And on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 2 p.m. all DHS alumni, along with other interested citizens, are invited to take part in the ceremony to dedicate the shelter. The ceremony will include a short presentation and a few speakers.
Almost one year ago, alumni from all graduating classes at DHS gathered in Dublin for an All-Class Reunion. During that time and in the months to follow, alumni donated a total of $17,400 to support the building of this shelter.
Now, besides a few small details, the shelter is complete, thanks to both monetary donations, along with donations of construction services and equipment from alumni and local members of the community.
According to Graham, the shelter can hold 100 people comfortably, but features a convertible bench/table that can accommodate 20 additional people. In addition, there will be two plaques to memorialize DHS alumni — both those who are living and those who have passed away.
Graham describes the shelter as being in a “good location,” which is close to the woods beside the park’s trail and is also close enough where parents whose children are playing can “keep an eye on the playground.”
Following the dedication ceremony at 2 p.m., the shelter will immediately be put to use by members of DHS’s Class of 1963 as they celebrate their 45th reunion.
