Class of ‘47 meets for 70th time
Twenty-seven members of the Liberty HS Class of 1947 and their guests gathered at the Palace Restaurant for their 70th reunion in October, for what some were calling the last reunion after the class treasury had been spent down to cover the costs of the event. Conversations among the classmates elicited laughter and knowing looks as they brought each other current on their lives and families. Comprised of former educators, scientists, steel workers and many other avocations among them, they enjoyed a tasty luncheon with choices from among chicken Marsala, broiled salmon or top sirloin of beef entrees. A display of Liberty and class memorabilia caught the interest of many in attendance, and included many newspaper clippings about members of the class and former teachers and administrators at Liberty. The reunion committee consisted of Richard Stiles, Jean Shiner Batt, Jean Bodder Jackson and Betty Ramberger Masteller.
