The Vermillion High School Class of 1952 celebrated its 60th class reunion on Sept. 14-15. There were 18 class members attending the reunion, along with several spouses. On Friday night, they attended the homecoming football game in the DakotaDome and afterwards spent some time socializing at the Prairie Inn.
=On Saturday, a noon luncheon was held at the Spink Café and a Saturday evening banquet was held at the Valiant Vineyards in Vermillion. Marion Kryger served as MC and all classmates were asked to give an update of their lives since the last reunion. Some of our classmates were unable to attend because of health reasons but wrote letters that were read at the reunion. Letters and any updates were sent to everyone so they would feel a part of the gathering.
