The Yorktown High School Class of 1963 celebrated their 50th year reunion on Saturday, October 26 at the Gruenau Hall Meeting Room.  Sixty-one former classmates, spouses, and guests attended.

A social from three to six o'clock in the afternoon allowed classmates an opportunity to   renew friendships and "catch up" on the last fifty years. A memorabilia table holding the reunion mugs, photo albums, scrapbooks, along with letters and photos from classmates who could not attend, was the site of reminiscing and much laughter.
