MEEKER | The Meeker High School Class of 1957 celebrated their 60-year class reunion on Aug. 12 at the beautiful natural setting of Bill and Carole Miller’s home on Lime Kiln. This class was the second to graduate from the “new high school,” and they are “amazed it is still standing!”
“We shared special memories and lots of laughter. There was not one person who acknowledged our age; unless we looked at each other as we stood from our chairs. We pretended to be 17 years old for a day!” wrote Shirley Harp via email. The following people attended: Richard Burdick (Betty), Ben Franklin (Iris), Ron Hilkey, Ben Hopson (Ellen), Wayne Johnson (Vicky), Carole Klinglesmith Miller (Bill), Shirley Mitchel Harp, Geri Nay Camera, Eva Pilkington Seely (Dan), Wilfred Rael (Katherine), Ann Sheridan Turner, Delbert Smith (June) and Mike Whalin (Mary).
