A 58th reunion and years of memories were shared recently by 29 classmates of the Chesterton High School Class of 1947.

Friday night the Dunes Acres Club House was filled with joy as lifelong friends and spouses from far and near gathered for a buffet dinner catered by Popolano’s.

The Saturday evening banquet was at Sand Creek Country Club. Classmates were honored to have as guests retired teachers and friends, Alice Behrendt and Dottie Hageman joined the festivities for the evening. A candle lighting ceremony in memory of 13 silent graduating classmates has become traditional at this affair. A unanimous vote was taken for a 60th October reunion in 2007.

Sunday morning, a continental breakfast at the Hilton Garden hotel left lifelong friends not with good-byes, but till we meet again greetings, thankful for another year to share memories of golden friendships.
