The annual reunion of the Falls City High School Alumni Association was held Sunday at Prichard Auditorium and was attended by 210 alumni, spouses and guests.

The 50-year class of 1963, which boasted the 1963 Class B state basketball championship, was the honored class.

The excellent dinner was prepared by the Band Parents and served by band members. The invocation was by Robert Bachman of the honored class.

Denny Heinzelman, class of 1964, was the emcee and gave the welcome. For the benefit of those from out-of town, he highlighted several of the city’s recent pluses, including the state-of-the-art baseball/softball complex.  

Elizabeth Steinman Huettner, noting that she was thrust into the role of giving the response for the 50-year class with short notice, began at the beginning.
