Welcome to the
Mankato High School
Class of 1958

 

The Class of 1958 Celebrated Their 60th Reunion
October 11 and 12, 2018

 

Our 60th reunion was uplifting.  We reconnected with many classmates on Thursday October 11, 2018 at the Loose Moose…located where the Town Theater used to be when we were growing up in Mankato. There were 79 people planning to attend (56 classmates and 23 guests).  Unfortunately, an early northern Minnesota snowstorm and unexpected illnesses interrupted plans of 8 classmates and 5 spouses.

 

On Friday morning, October 12, the high school invited alumni to the cafeteria for coffee and refreshments. We attended the high school gathering in the gymnasium for the alumni recognition and coronation.  The band, choir, speakers, and lively school spirit reminded us of our own days of old.  Our class was well represented with about 60 of us seated up front ahead of the classes celebrating 50 and 25 years.  Keely Schuck was crowned homecoming queen, a relative of our classmate, Jerry Schuck. The chilly weather kept us from attending the football game.  Scarlets won over Faribault.

 

Friday evening October 12, we returned to the Loose Moose for social hour and buffet supper. Several posters were on display depicting our high school days, notable times and remembering our deceased classmates. Both evenings were well attended, and the space was perfect for enjoying conversations, mingling, and great food.  We celebrated 3 birthdays Friday eve—Lowell Sieberg, Mary Sieberg Braam and Bob Timm—with Ron Solberg leading us in song.  Friday eve attendees included 62 classmates and 26 spouses.

 

Jim Anderson once again creatively wrote another great poem for our class reunion: We Are Seniors Again. We are pleased that MWHS Principal, Sherrie Blasing provided a high school update for our directory.
