MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - Members of the 1945 Muskegon High School graduating class say this is their final class reunion.
"That's why we are calling it our last hurrah," explains reunion co-chair Ardis Peters.
Thursday night, 50 or so members from the class of 1945 gathered at Muskegon Country Club to eat, sing, and reminisce.
"It's great to seeing them," says class of '45 member Richard "Red" Layfayette. "It's fun to renew old friendships."
The class of 1945 has been gathering every five years for the past 70 years.
But their numbers are shrinking, their health is declining, and they've decided this is the final reunion.
Still, most say they will still do their best to keep in touch.
"We have been a very loyal group to ourselves and to each other," says Peters.
