West Union class of 1945 celebrates 70th reunion

Posted: Updated:
WEST UNION (KWWL) -

There was a lot of wisdom present at Gus and Tony's Townhouse Cafe in downtown West Union Thursday.

That's because the West Union class of 1945 was celebrating their 70th class reunion.

Katherine Ewing, who organized the event, said 24 of the original class of 48 are still alive, and about a dozen came to the reunion.

"It just means a lot, and I'm so thankful that I'm able to stand up here and talk to you.  It's just wonderful," Ewing said.

They were also joined by one of their original teachers, who is now well into her 90's.
