70 Plus Attend "Ray Ford Old Timers" Event in October

 

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (October 18, 2019)--The 70-some former athletes from Gloucester City High School and Gloucester Catholic High School had a great time October 18 at the newly reorganized second annual Ray Ford-Leon Harris, Sr. Sports Night, which was also the 47th anniversary of the original “Ray Ford Oldtimers.”

6a00d8341bf7d953ef00e54f41ab298834-200piRay Ford (above) formed the group in 1972. When it first started the turnout would number close to 200 people. But, today, many of those individuals have passed on including Ford.

With a number of first-time attendees (14) and a good turnout of old-timers, there was much laughter, story-telling and fabulous memories of past teams, games, players, and friends.

Our special thanks to those who made this affair a success:

A great committee for organizing the event and making numerous phone calls was Walt Ashe, Bob Bevan, Joe Boulden, Jim Hagan, Tom Moody, Mike O’Donnell, Phil Schnell, Bud Shodder and Bart Rettew.
