A roundup of upcoming school reunions


The class of 1953 will mark its 60th anniversary this month.

The celebration will begin with a gathering from 6 to 9 p.m. June 28 at Gallo’s.

The following night, classmates will gather at the country club. Social hour will be 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with dinner to follow.

On June 30, there will be a breakfast gathering at Tanner’s restaurant at 9:30 a.m.

Those wishing to attend should contact Kay Burke Salamon at (724) 658-0660.


The class of 1948 will mark its 65th anniversary with two-day reunion.

Classmates will gather July 12 and 13 at the New Castle Country Club.

Invitations have been sent and must be returned, by June 28, to Sallie Daytner.

Additional information is available by contacting Daytner at (724) 652-5370 or Lois Locke at (724) 652-5603.


The annual Wilmington Area High School Alumni Banquet will be July 19.

The summer banquet is a change from the traditional September or October gathering.

Featuring a buffet meal, the banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. The cost is $20 per person.

To reduce the mailing expenses, specific members of each class were asked to contact classmates to provide information and collect reservations and money. That process resulted in nearly 200 alumni and friends attending the 2012 banquet. That procedure will be followed for the 2013 gathering.

The WAHS Alumni Scholarship Committee will award its fifth $500 scholarship this year. The current fund balance is just over $19,000. Anyone interested in contributing to the fund can send a check payable to WAHS Alumni Scholarship Fund and mail the tax-deductible contribution to: Community Foundation, Suite 301, 7 W. State St., Sharon, Pa. 16146.


The Mohawk Area Alumni Association is planning a reunion for Aug. 3.

The gathering will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

The class of 1962 will be in charge of registration and the class of 1964 will be in charge of refreshments. Members of the class of 1963 will be the honorees.

Anyone with questions or input may contact Charlotte McCalla Oliver, president, at (724) 336-5958.
