GHS Class of '62 Holds 50th Reunion Full of Memories

Classmates from Washington State to New Hampshire, California to Florida come back home along with several elementary school friends.

Geneva Community High School, Class of 1962 celebrated its 50th class reunion on Oct. 12 and 13. Dinner was held at the Dunham Woods Riding Club in Wayne on Friday after a cocktail party hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Cooper at their home.

A tour of the High School was the highlight for some of our out of town classmates reminding us that we were the first class to attend all four years at the then new high school opened in 1958.

Lamplight Equestrian Center provided us with a barbeque on Saturday afternoon.

Classmates from Washington State to New Hampshire, California to Florida came back home along with several elementary school friends. Coach Bob Schick and his wife were our guests of honor.

Committee Chair, Judith (Blevins) Chapman extends her thanks to her committee, Keith Bowgren, Stephen Cooper, Bob Cox, Lynn Landberg, Jane (Liesendahl) Monroe and Liz (Mead) Safanda  for their wonderful help and support in making this event a huge success!!

From a 1975 GHS grad, my amazed congratulations, especially, to the half-dozen '62ers in the front row who can still sit cross-legged (though Roger Johnson's cheating a bit) at age 68. Because I'm just 55, and if I tried the cross-legged thing, I don't know that I could get up off the floor....
