AHS Class of 1954

The Atlantic High School Class of 1954 held their 65th reunion on Saturday, Aug. 31 with 26 classmates and 44 attending. Before our 12:30 meal they met early for greeting and lots of conversation. Some of the class met Friday evening at Rumors at the Super Bowl. Shirley Woodring Lett and Sue Shannon Heady gave the program, including naming each of the classmates who are no longer with us, totalling 35. Letters were read from some of those who were not able to attend. It was so great to be able to get together for our 65th. We might even have a 70th.
