The Abbotsford High School classes of 1955 and 1956 held a joint class reunion on August 7 at El Norteno in Curtiss. The guest teachers were Rosalind Kramer and Joan Frost. 


A moment of silence was held to honor all deceased members. A delicious meal was enjoyed by all. A short program was held by all members sharing their past five years with the group. 


Marvin Broeske surprised the basketball class of 1956 with three old jerseys.  


Wanda (Prough) Rusk, from Chesterfield, MO called to talk with numerous fellow class members of the 1956 class. She was unable to attend the reunion due to health reasons. 


Each class voted to purchase an engraved wall tile at the new Abbotsford school with the class year and motto writ on the tile.
