On October 11, the graduating Class of 1956 for Vandalia High School held it’s third annual class reunion with 41 in attendance. An enjoyable evening at the Country Cupboard with classmates renewing friendships and discussing 58 years of “what has happened since graduation.” There was great food, great time, and looking forward to next year. Those traveling the farthest were Dean Jones, Bill Moore, and Carol Girard. Richard Lewis, who was visiting his daughter in North Carolina, came back just for the reunion. Those with first time attendance in 58 years were Olean Mudd Rohr and
Vernon Dale Bailey.
