Class of 1969 Celebrates 40th Reunion

Iowa Falls High School on 1969

1969 was a year that saw the moon landing, Woodstock, the birth of Earth Day, and the dawn of America’s gay rights movement. For the Class of 1969, it was a time their parents didn’t understand, and their children envy.

The Class of 1969 Rented their old high school to celebrate their 40th reunion. The reunion began on Friday with a Golf Tournament. There was a tour of the high school, some hanging out and dressing up for the evening dinner and dance. The dinner catered sit down dinner was held in the cafeteria and the dance was held in the gym, reminiscent of prom days.

On Sunday, there was a picnic in Foster Park where we ate and had a chance to visit with our classmates. Those who attended had a wonderful time, and each activity was memorable.
