It's the 40th Class Reunion for the 1967 graduates of Fillmore High School, and in planning the reunion, a new idea sprung forth.
It was decided to invite those who had been classmates but moved away before graduation. That idea brought on a bigger idea. There were only four years that the Fillmore students and the Belle Union students were merged and graduated from Fillmore High School. These were the classes of 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969. The fact makes the four classes totally unique.
To honor this "uniqueness" the Fillmore High School Class of 1967 has invited the classes of '66, '68 and '69 to their 40th reunion. A concept most hope will become a tradition.
"Not only are we four very unique classes, we all knew one another! We were schoolmates! Each class had about 50 students, give or take a few. We couldn't think of anything we would rather do than invite them to join us!" said Sandy Bunten Cosner, coordinator of the 40th Class Reunion.
The reunion will be Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Brickyard Crossing Inn on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway grounds at 4400 West 16th St., Speedway, from 6-11:30 p.m.
