Class of ‘65 conducts successful reunion


Staff report



SIDNEY — The Sidney High School class of 1965 held their 50-year reunion the weekend of Aug. 28-30.

More than 90 classmates — from a then-record 255 graduates — registered for the reunion banquet and other entertainment.

Friday began with a golf scramble at the Shelby Oaks Golf Course. A mixer on Friday evening at the American Legion Hall was preceded by some classmates participating with the Alumni Band at the football game.

A program at the Ross Historical Center Saturday morning by Linda DeVelvis covered events during the group’s school years. Classmate Faye Sullivan Spangler provided a guided tour of the Year of Valor exhibits at the center. Later, Judge Duane Goettemoeller gave an informative tour of the rooms of the Sidney Municipal Court.

Class military veterans were recognized and deceased classmates were honored Saturday evening before the Spot-catered meal at the immaculate Oaks Club.

The focal point for the evening was a silent auction of local memorabilia, signed books, custom jewelry, wildlife and local life prints, athletic event tickets and Reds memorabilia, and a weekend in New Orleans. Proceeds will benefit Sidney High School.

On Sunday morning, breakfast was shared at the Hampton Inn and Smokin’ Jo’s before out-of-town guests headed home.

Many local businesses supported the auction and other reunion activities.
