Newton Falls Class of 1956 Celebrates Their Fifty-Fifth Year Reunion

Newton Falls – The reunion was held June 17th at Faces Down Under in Newton Falls. This brought back memories because in 1956 the Manos Theatre stood where Faces is now located. After a period of socializing, all gathered at their tables for prayer given by Jim Paisley.In remembrance, names of our deceased classmates were read. A thank you was extended to classmates and guests for coming from near and far to celebrate this special time together. A delicious buffet dinner was served after which the class picture was taken. Our program was given by one of our classmates, Art Dunn. He gave an interesting talk about his experience walking 335 miles from Cincinnati to Pennsylvania, a twenty-two day walk. This was a healing time for him in memory of his wife Doris, also a classmate of ours. Questions were answered and we had a few laughs, which made for a nice time. Gifts were handed out to all classmates after which visiting, reminiscing and looking through memorabilia continued. The classmates and guests thanked the committee for all their hard work planning this special time. What a wonderful way to spend the evening with our long time friends from the “Class of 1956”.
