Three cheers for the SGA class of 65-the greatest class ever!  They came from as far away as Kentucky and Alaska to meet for our 50th class reunion.  Linda and Dewey at the Keuterville Pub and Grub treated us royally.  Lynne Hutchins and Vince Poxleitner were the MC's and did a great job. Special guests for the evening were teachers, Jerry and Mary Ann Wren, Leo and Aggie Lapke, and Sister Angela Uhlorn escorted by Sister Janet Barnard.  It was noted that we were one of the last classes to remember what life was like without computers.  Computers were as big as refrigerators when we were in high school.  We met again the next day at the city park for an ice cream social and more visiting.  We missed all those who could not come.
