A lot of people have stopped into the Rensselaer Library this past month to see the display for the Rensselaer High School Class of 1942.
On Saturday, June 9, at SJC's Halleck Center, the Rensselaer Alumni Association will celebrate several reunions this year for classes from 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 2002 and 2012.
There are certainly a lot of classes represented there, but a 70th class reunion is pretty noteworthy.
In 1942, we were in the midst of World War II, and a lot of the young men and women graduating weren't sure what the future would hold. Sometimes it seems like little has changed, but I'm sure the Class of '42 would tell you differently.
The display will remain up through Saturday. Money raised from the dinner will support scholarships for future classes.
For those who would like to leave a message about the display, the organizers can be reached at P.O. Box 24, Rensselaer, IN 47978.
