Alternative Spring Break 2014- Baltimore

ASB- Baltimore 2013 at New Psalmist Baptist Church
How did you spend your Spring Break when you were in college? Don't worry, we're not judging if you can't remember (wink, wink). Some students choose to forgo beaches and bathing suits for a bigger cause. For the past 20 years, Howard University has offered the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program. Each year, hundreds of students choose to volunteer their time in various cities during their break.

In recent years, ASB has added Baltimore to their list of cities. The participants will tackle the issue of gang violence. Students will be doing a variety of activities throughout the city. The Howard University Alumni Club of Baltimore appreciates all that ASB will be doing in order to combat this prominent issue amongst Baltimore youth. To show our appreciation, we will have a dinner welcoming them.

On Tuesday, March 11th at 7pm the ASB dinner will take place at New Psalmist Baptist Church. Bishop Walter S. Thomas is gracious enough to open the doors of his congregation to us. Bishop Thomas is a graduate of the Howard University School of Divinity.

We would love for you to join us for dinner! Consider this your formal invitation. It's a great chance to redeem yourself for those past Spring Breaks we promised we're not judging you for (just kidding, we're still not judging though).

BONUS: The club will sponsor a few current students who would like to come as well. So if you're a Howard student or alumni in the Baltimore area and would like to join us for dinner next week, email us at huacb1@hotmail.com. There are limited seats available.

Happy Hour at Colin's Seafood and Grill

Delicious seafood entrees, colorful drinks and Bison love filled the atmosphere at Colin's Seafood and Grill. On Friday, January 31st, club members caught up with each other over happy hour. Colin's Seafood and Grill is a newly opened restaurant located in Randallstown, MD and they played a gracious host.

Club members greeted each other with warm embraces and big smiles as they entered the back room of the bar. After everyone got settled, a group introduction was in order. Alumni from the class of 1968 all the way to the class of 2012 were in attendance. That's over four decades of alumni in one place.

Club members were able to exchange tales of Howard University past and present. While much has changed, the love of Howard remained the same amongst all. The happy hour also served as a networking event as Bison met some new faces and got reacquainted with familiar ones. Before leaving many exchanged business cards and contact information. Those same warm embraces and big smiles served as a goodbye as the group wished each other a safe trip and parted ways.

Want to be apart of this wonderful atmosphere? The club hosts several happy hours throughout the year at different locations around the Baltimore Metropolitan area. Make sure you stay plugged-in with the Howard University Alumni Club of Baltimore. We're now on Instagram and you can always find us on Facebook.

MLK Day of Service 2014



"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?"

 - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Amongst the many things Dr.King left as his legacy, service remains to be one of the most important. On Monday, January 20th, 2014 the Howard University Alumni Club of Baltimore chose to honor this legacy by participating in a day of service.

The club joined with the nonprofit organization, The 6th Branch, in their initiative to revitalize the Johnston Square neighborhood. This area is in East Baltimore and includes an elementary school, a playground and a basketball court which make up Ambrose Kennedy Park. Amidst older row-houses and an abandoned lot where row-houses once stood, the park had become neglected over the years.

The Howard Alumni Club of Baltimore helped to clean up the littered area, pull up weeds, and replace the battered concrete with a garden. The goal was to make the neighborhood enjoyable for the residents again and we were more than happy to take part in this project. Check out more pictures from the day below:
