An event that began as a social gathering among a few friends about ten years ago has grown into an annual tradition attended by dozens of former Eckert school students.
The Eckert School reunion was held at Eckert Presbyterian Church as a potluck social gathering this year on Sept. 19.
One guest flew to Blake Field in his private airplane from Montana to attend the event.
According to the event's hand-written sign-in guest register (some signatures legible with difficulty), over 35 people attended this year's event. They are Ed and Shirley (Holder) Hollett, Bobbie Butler Jones, Ines Lehigh Potter, Pat (Carson) Moore, Elanor Blair (Hendrickson), Edra Ridenour Fogg, Daryl Ridenour, Betty Reed Reed, Joan Phippeny and Walter and Phil, Lewis Ridenour, Tommy Reed, Bernie Reed Van Matre, Nathan Tony Reed, Mavis Bonnie Sturm, Don Aust, Nancy Neil Winkler, Ozella Shea, Lola Lee, Jim Shea, Bryce Morton, Norman and Dorothy Kehmeier, Wilma Edie, Jim and Carol Vela, John and Barbara Burrett, Bob and Jeanie Burritt, Earl Bonine, Ron and Margaret Bonine, Margaret Bakeman Neil, Karen (Leonard) Phippeny, and Garaldine Dech (Hull).blog comments powered by Disqus
