Last Saturday night nineteen of the forty-one graduates of the Thorp High School class of 1933, held their 35th Anniversary Class Reunion at the Sky Club. Preceding the dinner, acquaintances were renewed and ins some instances it was the first time the classmates had met since graduating in 1933. In addition to the class members and their wifes or husband, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Anderson of Hudson were guests for the occasion. Mr. Anderson served as Coach and Industrial Arts instructor in the thirties, while Mrs. Anderson, the former Harriet Mahlberg, was a grade school instructor during that period.

The class of 1933 held their first reunion ten years ago, wat which time one member, Ida Markowski Skalecki, had passed away. In the next decade three members have departs, Loblia Gotter Helms, Eldred Winger, and just recently, Clarence Fisher. "Mrs. Clarence Fisher expressed her thanks to the graduates of the class of '33 for the floral bouquet."

Eugene Wilhelm served as committee chairman, Betty Schmidt as Sec'y/Treasurer, with Ben Burkhardt, Grace Baldeschwiler and Dorothy Mattes assisting. Pat Soderberg acted as Master of Ceremonies.
