The Community R-VI 1955 graduating class held their 60th year Reunion Celebration at Martinsburg Library on Saturday, August 15, 2015.
This was the second class to graduate at the then “new high school.”
Of the 34 graduates, 22 thrive today.
We had a great time getting reacquainted and telling our stories of those 60 years.
We hope to have a 65th celebration.
Those attending were Therese Becker Fennewald, Martinsburg; Maryanna Conklin Mackey, Mexico; Betty Parkey Wolf, Mesa, Arizona; Janice Potter Erdel, Mexico; Leroy Werner, Milan; Alma Rentfro Mitchell, New Hartford; Carol Hays Smith, Tucson, Arizona;  Earl Smith, Tucson, Arizona; Myrna Blaue Rodgers, Bellflower; David Pittenger, Clear Water, Florida; Eugene McCown, Mexico; Doris Wright Gore, Mexico; and Frankie Pearl Stuckenschneider, Martinsburg.
