57th reunion for LPHS Class of 1961 is Sept. 29

The LaPorte High School Class of 1961 will hold a 57-year celebration on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the large barn/banquet hall provided by Bob Hull at 215 Holton Rd., LaPorte.

This very casual affair will start at 5 p.m. with light appetizers, followed by a buffet-style dinner at 6:30 p.m. Drinks provided include water, tea, coffee and soda. Other drinks will be BYOB. A bartender will be available.

Menu: Dinner will be catered by Third Base Bar & Grill; entrees will be pulled pork, Italian beef, and chicken & noodles, with sides to include salads, potatoes and vegetables.

The cost is $20 per person.

A great selection of ‘50 and ‘60 music will be played. There is a dance floor, but no street shoes are allowed. In other words, a sock hop!

A bulletin board display will be available so classmates can share notes and/or recent photos.

A list of last known addresses and emails will be available. If you have an address or email of a classmate, please contact Doris Watt Hickman at paparonny2005@aol.com. Also, if you are aware of deceased classmates, particularly since the 50th reunion, please contact Doris.

Saturday morning, Les Todd has again organized a golf game at Beechwood Golf Course at a cost of approximately $25 for green fees and carts. If you are interested, please contact Les at lesftodd@gmail.com.

If you are in town on Friday evening, there will be a meet and greet gathering at Best Western Plus on Pine Lake Avenue at 7 p.m.

Reunion committee members are: Carolyn Phillips Coulter, Don & Catherine Darst Boody, Robert Hull, Margaret Weller Bender, Barbara Cummings Broviak, Carol Getz West, Lester Todd, Carolyn Jackson, Karen Weidner Hamilton, Steve Tukos, Carol Mickelson Petros, and Doris Watt Hickman.
