Class of 1953 65th Reunion Report

by Jerry Chichester

Our 65th Reunion went off very well on July 18, 2018. As always, we had a blast! With the able leadership of Gale Wergeland, we had as much fun planning it as doing it.

Seventy-eight of the class came to the events out of 325 active members. That’s 24% – a good showing at our age! The reunion raised $1,435 for Golden Grads General fund. In addition, our chat groups donated $705 to the Teacher’s Wish List. The Juliets (Ladies Chat Group) with $455 beat the Romeos (Men’s Breakfast) $250. In any case, we are proud of donating $2,110 this year.

Our thanks to all those that made all this happen!
