About 300 Cedar Springs graduates returned to the area June 14 for their annual 50-plus years class reunion. This year the class of 1960 became eligible for the reunion for the first time.
“Every class was represented all the way back into the 1930s,” said Jim Opperman, secretary for the reunion committee.
There were even some attendees from the 1920s. Velma Stout Brown, who will turn 102 in the fall, was the oldest attendee, from the class of 1926. She came from Battle Creek and attended with her granddaughter.
The group meets every year at the high school on the first Monday after school gets out. “The cafeteria prepares a nice lunch for us. They do an excellent job,” said Opperman.
Superintendent Ron McDermed spoke to the group this year.
“It was really a nice gathering,” said Opperman.
