  • Five-class VHS reunion held in September

    Five Vandalia High School classes met at Days Inn in Vandalia on Sept. 11 for a reunion.
    In 1988, the VHS class of 1948 celebrated its 40th reunion, and invited classes from 1946, 1947, 1948 and 1950 to share in the planning of the reunion.
    These five classes have continued to meet jointly over the years, with the individual class chairmen remaining the same: 1946-Iris Brooks Rademacher; 1947-Jeanne Lawler Hohlt; 1948-Annie Spinner Eller; 1949-Gary Bone; and 1950-Jean Meredith Stombaugh.
