Five mid-50s OHS classes plan joint reunion June 11-13
By John Werner, 55
For the second time in less than a decade five mid-50s OHS classes are planning a joint class reunion in Orofino, this time during the second weekend in June. Well over 200 classmates and spouses from OHS 53, 54, 55, 56, and 57 are coming back to Orofino to celebrate.
The three-day gathering
starts Friday eve, June 11, at
We found getting together with adjacent classes whom we hadnt seen in nearly 50 years was so much fun in 1991 that we are repeating the idea again this year, said Merle Bobbitt Loseth, OHS 53, who has been overseeing the preparations with the planning committee.
Other planners who have been working more than a year on the event include Duane Millard, Dale Richardson, and Joanne Shriver Hutchinson 53, Larry Blenden, Gerri Konkol Bird, Gerri Roby Lemmon, Pat Adams Millard 54, Sue Hutchinson Blenden, Bud Schwartzkopf 55, Beverly Nelson and Jolene Leonard Peirson 56, Rae McArthur Thomason, Joanne Mullikin Montambo, and Joan Danner Williams 57.
Besides all over
In 1991 we found out how much we enjoyed seeing friends from adjacent classes, Ms. Loseth said. Each class has its own periodic reunions, butas much fun as they areyou get to see only your own classmates, every decade or so. So the five-class event lets us again meet up with close friends and schoolmates from long ago, for some really good visiting and catching up. Lots of us had best friends from adjacent classes.
Orofino should be abuzz in nostalgia trips, June 11 to 13.
