The Worthington Class of 1959 is well on the way to setting up its' 60th class reunion! Under the direction of Chair Jim Dunning (WI) and aided by the substantial efforts of Conrad Schmidt, Worthington native, the date and venue of the reunion have been established.
The reunion will be held in conjunction with the 80th annual King Turkey Day celebration. Friday night, September 13th, will be a casual 'meet and greet' get-together at the Hickory Lodge Bar and Grill, and a more formal gathering for dinner on Saturday, September 14th will be at the same location. Through the efforts of Myron Meyer, Worthington native with a tractor-drawn flatbed, the '59ers will once again participate in the giant TD parade.
Other possible activities may include a tour of the local high school and the city of Worthington... Check back for updates.
Jim had the goal of reaching every remaining member of the class, and assigned missing names to committee members. When efforts appeared exhausted, 'super-sleuth' Dwayne Junker (CA) stepped up and was able to locate many of the 'lost'!
Other committee members include Joel Lieske (Ohio), Bonny Johnson Doyle (MN), Joyce Selberg Wilson (MN), Gary Kallsen (WI), Sandra Clark Noerenberg, (KS) Kathy Fiola Sherwood (CA), William Wolterstorff (local), and Adrienne Osterfeld Hurlbert (MN). A strong contributor in the past, committee member Melvin Leistico (MO), is unfortunately unable to attend this year.
NOTICE TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF '58 AND THE CLASS OF '60: we invite you to stop in at the Hickory Lodge to meet with any of the members of our class that you might remember. Approximate time: 5:00.
