Garland High School, Class of '42

The 70 Year Honor Class from Garland High School was recognized last evening at the American Legion Hall in Garland. The 3 surviving members of the class of 11 graduates in 1942 were in attendance. They are: Jack Armstrong, Tony Vrana & Don Armstrong. Don and his wife Jackie were here from Wyoming to join with Jack and I from here in Seward. It was a most enjoyable evening visiting with old friends. GHS graduated it's first class in 1923 and the last class in 1969 so there were few "young people" at the party. Attendance seems to decline with each passing year. Willard Kilzer was recognized as having graduated in 1937 and the oldest present. It was reported that Mildred (Davis) Lauber who is 103 years old and graduated in 1927 sent her regards. A film on "The Ridge Road" which involved several of us was shown for entertainment and discussion. A good time was had by all.
