Fredonia High School's Class of 1967 recently held their 45th reunion during a two-day event. Friends gathered from around the country to celebrate. Melinda and John Bell hosted the Friday evening party at their home with former teacher Margaret Ruckman as a special guest.
On Saturday, the class gathered at Katerina's for dinner topped off by a beautiful commemorative cake prepared by George Civiletto. A presentation was made to Mickey Mamp for his 48 years of contributions to the field of music. Guests then attended the performance of the Wretched Group at the Clarion.
A display of photos, created by Evelyn Sievert, honored deceased classmates. In their memories, the class has given scholarships annually for 25 years at Fredonia High's graduation.
