Gather for first reunion in 20 years
by Barry Bauer
This photo is the only one they had. There were no senior pictures or yearbooks that year. It probably was due to the War effort.
The RBW Class of 1942 gathered at Main Street Café Saturday, June 16, for a class reunion, the first one in twenty years.
While eating their lunch the 1942 graduates shared stories about school and things that happened to them since then. One came as far away as Oregon.
A lot of these guys headed off to War after graduation and contributed to the victory that finally came.
Bonnie Wickerham did a great job of organizing this occasion.
