The Springer Connection is a gathering place for alumni and faculty of Highland Springs High School, located in the small town of Highland Springs, Virginia.

The Springer Connection is a free resource to help us all stay in touch and help Springers of all Class Years come together for Reunions. Join Up and return often, as we add new areas and features.

The years go by and people and places change, but the lives we shared at Highland Springs High School make us friends.

14th Annual Blast From The Past
14th Annual BLAST FROM THE PAST

HELP THE CHILDREN
Net proceeds of this event are for the benefit of Shriners Hospitals for Children
(Over $45,000 has been raised from Blast ticket sales since 2004!)

Saturday, OCTOBER 17, 2015, The Acca Shriner’s Patrol and The Springer Connection
present the 14th Annual Blast from the Past.

The Blast From The Past will feature the best of 60's and 70's Rock and Roll with
FLASHBACK
and
The All-Star SPRINGER BAND

WEEKEND OF THE BLAST CHANGED THIS YEAR:
Last year (2014), there was a conflict with traffic on Bellview Avenue caused by a bicycle race in preparation for the 2015 UDI Road World Championships bicycle race. Many attendees had difficulty traversing Bellview Avenue to get to the Acca Shriner's Ballroom. Some could not get there at all. All of the UDI races will be done by late September this year, so the roads will be clear.

Also, many people have not been able to attend on the third Saturday of August due to end-of-summer vacations.
Moving the Blast to October clears us of these issues.

You don't want to miss this party! Come out, dance, party and rock with more than 400 of your best Springer friends.

Majorie Booth Bonnet

MARJORIE BOOTH BONNET was Principal at Highland Springs School from 1924 to 1944.

She oversaw the largest High School in the County at a time when men were expected to hold the position. Her students felt such regard for her that they called her "Mommie" Bonnet.
