YHS Class of 1969 gathers for 45th reunion

On August 8 the Yorktown High School graduating class of 1969 held their 45th reunion at the home of Harland and Judy Schlenker. Nineteen of the original 62 member class were in attendance. The afternoon event was filled with fun, bountiful food, and lots of sharing of life stories which improved as the afternoon continued. Everyone told of their travels through time and how they made their mark in history. Much conversation centered around retirement, grandchildren, and vacations. Schedule conflicts prevented several from the event so phone calls, emails, and personal messages were shared with the group. A unanimous agreement was made that another reunion would be held in five years. The class of 1969. Front row from the left are Nellene (Wehe) Dlugosch, Rayba (Reynolds) Schroller, Brenda (Light) Podsum, Carole (Berkenhoff) Seiler, Theresa (Respondek) Spellacy, Jolene Meuret. Middle row: Barbara (Arnold) Audilet, Jimmy Lechuga, Judy (Metting) Schlenker, Aubry Crisp, Don Dubose.
