On Saturday, August 17, the Thorp class of 1969 gathered at the Munson Bridge Winery in Withee to celebrate and reconnect.

"We had half of our class in attendance," said Lori Haas Pajak. "Classmates came from as far as California and Colorado."

Dr. Scott Ahles traveled the farthest, coming from Fresno, California. Dr. Bernard Slota came from Colorado, and he gave each classmate their own bottle of wine with "Class of 69" labels on the side as a token of appreciation.

Pat (Sauer) Raven, Karen (Badzinski) Schlabowske, Ken Morgan, Kada (Kopacz) Baehr, Dennis Lendosky, Dean Abramczak, Ron Serocki, Keith Palms, George Kowieski, Bill Bishop, Mark Hermsen, and Vince Pogodzinski.
