The Reelsville Class of 1967 was honored at the Reelsville Alumni Dinner as 15 members of the class enjoyed the 50-year reunion dinner June 3 at Central Elementary.

At the banquet Cheryl Steuerwald shared information about the Reelsville Memories Project at the Putnam County Public Library.

Some members of the Class of ‘67 have shared by writing their memories of school at Reelsville. The goal is for all who are interested to share their memories of the school.

Cheryl Morlan Steuerwald of the Reelsville High School Class of 1967 shares information about the Reelsville Memories Project at the Putnam County Public Library.

The Putnam County Public Library Local History Department will partner with Reelsville alumni to preserve these memories.

Anthony Barger, a trained archivist at PCPL, is interested in preserving paper records, scrapbooks, photos, yearbooks, journals, family histories and personal reminiscences, Steuerwald said.

The Reelsville Memories Project has received some additional items. Wanda Morlan Eilts donated the Scarlet Letter yearbooks from 1961-67, while Susan Bates has shared a copy of Smoke Signals from the fifth-grade year and some photos.

Eilts has a large scrapbook for the Class of 1967 to donate and Steuerwald has compiled copies of yearbook photos for all 12 years and newspaper clippings for the Class of ‘67. Anjie Johnson, Class of 1952, has shared several photos.

The PCPL Local History and Genealogy Department is dedicated to collecting, preserving and providing public access to Putnam County’s historical records. Upon request, Barger will visit your home to assist, pack and transport materials to the library, Steuerwald said. Persons may contact him at or 653-2755 ext. 120.
