Monett High School Class of 1962 recently held its 50th class reunion. Members attending the event gathered for an informal evening of visiting and snacks at the VFW Tom Wolfe Memorial Post #4207.
Members toured the Monett Historical Society and gathered on Saturday evening for a meal at the VFW Post, catered by the VFW Ladies Auxiliary. Memories Photography took the class photo.
Master of Ceremonies Ed Sweeney invited class members to stand and introduce themselves and their wives before giving a brief update of the previous few years of their lives. The class voted to donate money to the Monett High School Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. Special guests, including Dr. Ralph and Mary K. Scott, were recognized. Plans are being completed to reunite in two years.
