There's nothing like a reunion to bring back old memories. On August 15 I had the honor to attend the 50th reunion of the Wasilla High School class of 1965. There were 23 graduates, the largest number of graduates up to that time.Sadly only six from the class attended. Four are deceased and the rest just couldn't or chose not to come. However, there were four of us who attended all 12 years; 1953-65. We were all there and that made it worth while.
We spent Saturday afternoon remembering old times and catching up on what happened over the last 50 years. The four who have passed away were especially remembered. Others from the 60's classes also were our guests as well as Mrs. Ede, in her 80's, one of our favorite teachers.Frieda lived in town, although Wasilla had a population of only about 100 then. Susanna lived near Pittman on a homestead. Judith lived both in town and on a nearby homestead. I lived on a homestead on what is now Fairview Loop Road.
