EHS All-Classes Reunion is a fun-filled event for graduates from five decades

Posted

Camaraderie was abundant at Evergreen Lutheran Church on July 16.

That’s when the Evergreen High School All-Classes Reunion kicked into high gear with about 100 grads from the 1950s to the 1990s picnicking, reminiscing about their time in high school and catching up on the latest happenings. The event couples some of the area’s oldest families with others that have spent less time here.

The graduates from the older classes remember who owned which homes, who married whom and how they are connected. They are also not thrilled about the amount of growth and traffic in Evergreen — a huge change from when they were kids.

Yet, no matter which year they graduated, they are happy to connect with friends, some still living nearby and others traveling from other states to attend the reunion.

The reunion has been a summer mainstay for the graduates for more than three decades. While graduates tend to be from earlier years, they are hoping that newer graduates will join the ranks each year to keep the connection — and the event — going.

Bob and Nancy Brown from the class of 1955, who are about ready to move to Montrose, said they like to see their schoolmates, happy to be able to attend when they can.

Siblings Kathy and Doug Petty, classes of ’66 and ’64 respectively, said the reunion allows them to see friends they don’t typically see.

Lynlee Washburn Wisdom and Ann Crosson Hager, members of the class of ’66, said while there were 100 students in their graduating class, they are two of 13 who were in school together from kindergarten through graduation.

While Lois Arnold, class of ’54, has attended most of the reunions — and organized it for many years — friend Mike Miller, class of ’69, is a relative newbie at attending the reunions. Miller reminisced about working at his dad’s gas station in Evergreen in the early 1960s, needing to stand on a box to reach car windshields.

They agreed that the best part of the reunions was seeing old friends.
