The Gladbrook Class of 1969 held their 50th Reunion during Corn Carnival Jun20 – 22. Zeno’s for pizza was the first event on Thursday evening. Friday we helped Ray Mehaffy and Daelynn Schmitz with the float reassembly and gathered at Cornell and Cathy Gethmann’s where they hosted us before heading to the float to be in the Grand Parade. (We won 1st place in the Alumni Division!) Saturday night was the finale with dinner and socializing at the Memorial Building. 31 classmates were in attendance with 62 present for dinner including spouses and Mr. Wickersham and Mr. Enderlin. We honored our classmates who are no longer with us.
