GALION — The Galion High School Class of 1953 had its 65th reunion the weekend of Aug. 17 and Aug. 18.
On Friday night, classmates gathered at the home of Raymond Weithman in Galion for an informal picnic. Time was spent recalling high school days and catching up with old friends. Saturday’s celebration moved to the Skyway East in Mansfield, where there was reminiscing, and invocation and moment of silence honoring deceased classmates.
A beautifully-decorated cake was furnished by Peggy Pitman, along with a display of all classmates graduation pictures, indicating those who were deceased. Also honored were 25 classmates who served in the various branches of the military. This part of the reunion was researched by William Mackey at the request of class president Donald Halsey
Class members decided that every year they will meet at the Pizza Hut in Galion, on the third Saturday of August, for a luncheon.
