Sandusky classmates reunite

Greensburg — Ninety-four attended the biannual reunion of the Sandusky Alumni honoring the 50-year graduates of Sandusky High School, classes of 1961 and 1962.  

The celebration was held at North Decatur with a buffet luncheon catered by the Rolling Pin. Bob White gave the invocation. Flower arrangements of white, red and yellow carnations, designed by the Log Cabin, were used as table decorations and door prizes.

Don Mauer led the meeting with introduction of the committee, President, Dudley Myers, first Vice President Don Mauer, second Vice President, Robert Brewsaugh, third Vice President June Snyder, Secretary and Treasurer, Bonita Myers.

A report was given on the Sandusky Alumni Scholarship Fund which is administered by the Decatur County Community Foundation. Continuing the legacy of the Sandusky School, donations to the Sandusky Alumni Scholarship can be sent to the DCCF in honor of a special event such as a birthday or anniversary or in memory of friends and loved ones.

Letha Delay, class of 1939, was recognized as having been graduated from Sandusky High School the longest. As the members of the 50-year honored classes of 1961 and 1962 were introduced, they were encouraged to share a fond memory from their school days. From the class of 1961, were Gary Grote, June (Ralston) Snyder, Gene Grote, and Bill Taylor. June Snyder read a letter from classmate Jim Bob McDonald.

From the class of 1962 were Karen (Waybright) Carroll, Ruth (Brewsaugh) Flack, Roberta (Filler) Hunt, Patti (Tilley) Myers, Don Bruner, Bob White, Billy Giddings, Lawrence Woodhull, Donna (Bruner) Flint, and Dudley Myers.  This was a unique reunion for this class as all 10 of them started first grade together, then went through all 12 grades and graduation together.

Members attending from the class of 1952 were recognized for their 60th graduation anniversary. The class of 1958 was recognized for their continued active participation in bringing their classmates together.

Entertainment for the occasion consisted of Pat Smith speaking of the history of Clinton Township schools, the founders and how Sandusky was recognized as being one of the finest smaller schools in the State with high rankings for administration and academics. The remainder of the afternoon was spent taking pictures and reminiscing.
