There could never be enough praise, for this hard working group, in their continual efforts to organize, promote and stage the many reunions for the Newark High School Class of 1959.

If you have ever had the chance to attend other class reunions you know how special ours is. The decision making, when planning a reunion can be, at times, dreadful. Just try to please what was once a class of 351 students. Yet every five years they get the job done in spectacular fashion. Gathering the information to print our reunion directory is a mammoth task. How special is it to have that booklet to stay in contact with so many classmate friends.

Our reunions aren't just one evening. There is a Tursday Night at Tony's Bar, A Friday Night Mixer, A Golf Outing and Boat Excursions around Buckeye Lake. Then the Big Affair, the Saturday night Reunion Dinner. A large round of applause was given, at the 55th reunion dinner,
​in appreciation of the work done by the Reunion Committee.

This is a well-deserved tribute to a great team of volunteers.
