Basketball -- no-win victory ... "suicides" ... volleyball, Marsh hitting score tables ... Win over Central and Holy Name ... accompanying solos ... band practices ... "marching" ... striving with the Redner's gang ... driving ... Thanks Mom, Dad, and Marsha!

From the December 1984 Penn Post

     This year�s Christmas Concert was held on December 18. For the first time the concert combined the efforts of the high school and the elementary school. This was done to generate a larger audience and to give elementary students and parents a chance to see the high school�s music program.
     The participants included the elementary band and chorus, the junior high chorus, the senior high band, and chorus. The cheerleaders were also featured in a dance to the �Reindeer Rock.�
     The accompanists for the chorus numbers were Amanda McGuire, Missy Oberhauser, and Barbara Yerger.

Chris Mal Notes:
Check out Julie Hyman's senior picture - why is Barb's profile clearly in the picture? Did anyone else notice that?

Did you know that Barb transferred to Mt. Penn from the Reading School District?

According to her profile, Barb's political views are "Ultra-conservative," and in her free time she enjoys "Arts, movies, reading, sleeping, spending time with her family, sports, surfing the Internet, traveling, watching TV, and working on her hobbies."

On 5/04/02, Barb was at the 16-year Class Dinner at 3rd & Spruce with her husband and two sons.  It turns out that Barb lives within walking distance of me.  In fact, I've probably walked our dog by her house numerous times over the last few years.  Also in attendance were:  Suzanna (Post) Barlow and son, Cathy (Ketcher) Rowley and family, Lori (Czarnecki LaPearl) and family, Karen (Orth) Rimby and family, plus Bev and I.

Barb still sees Mrs. Haag at Country Meadows, and says that Mrs. Haag is legally blind.  Mrs. Haag was one of Barb's favorite mentors back in high school.
Barb's sister Marsha:
Marsha is living in Ashburn, Virginia (near Leesburg and Tysons Corner), and had a baby on her birthday - July 13th, 2005 - at 9:30 PM.  The baby's name is Rachael.  She was 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and 21" long at birth.

So, the VP has just so much work to do that there just isn't time for the VP to deal with fundraising?

From the October 1984 Penn Post
New Students:  BARBARA YERGER, a former Reading High student, feels the student teacher relationship is better here than at Reading. She also thinks students at Mt. Penn are more interested in academics than in electives. Besides missing her friends, she also misses some of the many electives Reading has. Barbara is an active chorus member and is still getting used to our small chorus.
