Vicksburg High School graduates from 1934-1964 will gather for their annual breakfast celebration during the Lions Club Summer Festival on Saturday, July 26.
The event will be held in the community pavilion from 9 to 11 a.m. Early registration is encouraged by sending a check for $12.50 per person to the Vicksburg Community Schools Foundation (VCSF), 301 S. Kalamazoo Ave., Vicksburg, 49097 or by calling 321-1006.
The class of 1964, having reached the 50 year mark, will be the guests of honor. Mason Bishop, Bob Springer, and Ann Linton will also be recognized as perhaps the oldest living graduates who annually attend. They represent the classes of 1934, ’35, and ’36.
Over 300 graduates and their spouses annually attend.
It’s a great chance for classmates, friends and neighbors to catch up on the past year and celebrate their years in the Vicksburg Community School system, according to Amy Manchester, staff of the VCSF, who helped Mary Westerville Prange organize the breakfast.
The school foundation stepped in four years ago to help with the planning and to ensure the annual gathering would take place each year. The Lions Club has also been a sponsor for many years by allowing the use of its festival facilities. This will be the first year that the alumni will meet at the pavilion.
Organizing the event falls on the class that marked its 50th the previous year. For this year’s event, Prange accepted the duties of general chair.
