Members and guests of the Cardington-Lincoln High School Class of 1970 met recently to celebrate their 50 plus-one-year graduation anniversary.

The event was postponed from last year due to COVID-19.

The first event was held Friday, Oct. 15 in the Cardington Rotary Community Building. The room was decorated in a red and black football theme. Following dinner, some of the class members attended

Cardington-Lincoln High School’s homecoming game while others stayed in the Rotary Building and viewed a DVD prepared by Jason Radel in which class members were portrayed in years past. It also honored veterans and those classmates who have passed away. Following the game, pizza was served.

Classmates met the next day at Larry Schrote’s Party Barn where it was decorated with a fall theme. Following dinner, the class military veterans were honored with special recognition.

Those veterans are Bill Graham, Gary Benson, Ron Redman, Bill Williams, Sam Osborne and Mike Ellis. Receiving posthumous recognition were Gary Higgins, Ed Moore and Bob Piper, Sr.

Bookmarks, a gift from the Cardington-Lincoln High School Alumni Association, were presented.

Winding up the evening, some class members were treated to a Fall hayride with Howard Radel taking them through the King’s Mill Covered Bridge.

Planning this reunion were Ron Davis, Gail Phillip Scharf and Marlene Cobourn Radel. The next reunion will be planned by Laurie Dion Lucas, Cathy Bowman Honaker, Michelle Owens Davidson and Teresa McClintock Bailey.
