Fifty-nine classmates attended the 50th reunion activities of the Iola High School class of 1968 Friday through Sunday in Iola.
Festivities began with a mixer at the Iola Elks Club at 6 p.m. Friday, followed by a Flat Earth Band reunion and concert at the Little Theater. Two classmates were in the band, Don Sharp and Tom Luttrell.
On Saturday, some walked the Lehigh Trail in the morning with Lonnie Henkle, rode trolley rides in the afternoon guided by Jim Gilpin, and later toured improvements at the Bowlus with Richard Spencer. The class reunion picture was taken at the Riverside Park football stadium at 6:30 p.m. with a tour of improvements there and a balloon release to honor the 33 departed members of the class. Dinner at the Elks with Dudley’s catering rounded out the evening. Sunday, classmates met for nostalgic lunch at Kings Sandwich Shop.
