Rufus King High School
Class of 1955 60th Reunion
It's hard to believe it's been 60 years! On September 25, 2015, 36 Class of '55 members and 21 guests gathered at the Radisson Hotel Milwaukee West for our almost annual reunion. The turnout was so good we needed two rooms! (With the dividing wall removed.)
Name Tags
The welcome table outside the room(s) had name tags which, for graduates, had their picture from the yearbook. It still took a bit of searching to find the right one.
Kaye (Jefferies) Eckert and Gwen (Schmeling) Rundel making final arrangements.
Then, before dinner, there was plenty of time to visit with classmates and look over the memorabilia.
Then we had lunch/dinner, topped off with a piece of the beautiful and traditional Reunion Cake.
Before everyone left we took 'Class Pictures'. So everyone was recognizable we divided into three groups.
The names are "high school names".
