We attended the Garland High School Alumni reunion this evening at the American Legion Hall in Garland. The last Class to graduate was in 1966 when the HS joined Seward. The building was retained as an elementary school for several more years. It has been under private ownership for a number of years but little has been done to utilize the structure. We have passed the point of it having been more years since a class was graduated than the number of years in which graduations were held. I am the only remaining member of my Class of ’42 which was the oldest class represented tonight. There were 80 Alumni
and guests at the event this evening. An excellent Buffet Dinner was catered by R.O’s. from Seward and drinks served by the Legion. The meal is a bargain and you can’t put a price tag on visiting with old friends. I have reached the place where some of the “young” people come to me for information and “gossip” they want to confirm. The old “Germantown State Bank” was also open for visitors. Garland Volunteers under the leadership of Bob and Merna Kirkland have done a commendable job of restoring the classic old building to its earlier splendor. We hadn’t been in Garland for some time and the old town looked pretty good .
