Class of 1953 Reunites Each Month
Some people avoid their class reunion at all costs. Others look forward to catching up with old friends every ten years or so. The Papillion High School Class of 1953 takes it a step further. They meet for lunch every month!
Reporter Rachel George from the Papillion Times visited the group during their June meeting at Old Chicago.
The tradition originated about seven years ago when three class members began meeting at a central point to discuss how they would decorate a table to represent their class at a 10-class reunion. They enjoyed each others’ company so much they decided to invite the rest of their classmates, making it a monthly ritual. Of the class' 26 members, 19 are still living and many show up to the lunch when they can, some even driving an hour or two for the occasion.
