All students of Girard High School from 1940 to 1959 are invited to the Multi-year Reunion planned for Oct. 29 at the newly renovated Avon Oaks Ballroom on North State Street. Those attending need not have graduated. Many students left school in the early ’40s and ’50s to serve in the military during World War II and the Korean War, to work in the mills to help support their families or to relocate out of Girard. Individual invitations are not being issued because of the number of alumni involved, so the reunion committee is urging all classmates to spread the news of the gala, which will include dinner, dancing, a performance by the Ballroom Dance Studio and a few surprises. The cost is $15 per person. A cash bar will be available. Seating is limited, so early reservations are requested. Committee members are, from left, seated, Gail DeChant DePaul, Colette Martin Chuey, Fred Faiver, Wilma Nail Macek, Marianne Baechtel Nethers; and standing, Frank Macek, Jerry Brandenstein, Ray Beach, Allan Barlis and Mike DePaul. For reservations or more information, contact Wilma Macek, Class of 1956, at 330-545-2454 or Mike DePaul, Class of 1949, at 330-545-2689.
