There were just over 54 graduates in the Cedaredge High School Class of 1966, according to one classmate who attended the 50th class reunion held last weekend.
Over 20 of those graduating 1966 class members attended the class reunion at Lions Pavilion on Friday evening, Sept. 9. The Friday get-together was followed by a dinner at RJ's Steakhouse in Cedaredge on Saturday.
Fewer than a half dozen of the 1966 class members have passed away since the day they all crossed the stage and received their diplomas together, the DCI was told.
Last May the school's Class of 2016 graduated 53 seniors.
