Cascade High School Class of 1957

October 13, 2017 by Roger Harris (Register to contact)

On Sept. 23rd, 2017 we celebrated our 60th reunion at the Best Little Roadhouse in Salem. We had 14 of our classmates together for our celebration. Some of us hadn't seen each other for the past 60 years and some were old friends better acquainted. We had an excellent dinner and evening of visiting with our classmates. We learned of 12 classmates that are no longer with us. It was nice sharing stories about our lives and families since our graduation. We left the evening feeling like it would be nice to do this again next year or the year after with hopefully more of our fellow Cougars.
