Fifty classmates from the Kennett Class of 1967 gathered on Saturday afternoon, September 15 to catch up on 40 years of life’s experiences. The reunion was held at Tom and Joleen Heiervang’s farm on Brandywine Drive in West Chester. Tom was the former exchange student from Norway with the class in their senior year.

The Reunion committee involved included Elaine Fiore, Dee Pesce, George Barber, Donna Maraldo, Margaret Felicetti (Pennington) and Maureen McCauley. The committee wanted to plan an informal gathering to promote lots of opportunities to mingle and enjoy. Each classmate contributed to the buffet with a fabulous array of salads, desserts, appetizers and the Heiervangs’ arranged for a pig roast to be included.

Former students came from near and far literally. “Out-of-towners” included Karen Yarnell (Florida), Gwynee Unruh (New Mexico), Greg Woods (California), Galen Goss (Virginia), Jim Wayne (Arizona), Linda Tice (California), Tom Heiervang (Norway), Eric Roberts (Maryland), and Jackie Fletcher (Oklahoma).

Once again, Kennetteer yearbooks were passed around for signing. The crisp Autumn  afternoon was the perfect setting to gather and catch up and reconnect. The group enthusiastically agreed to meet again – and not to wait another 15 years!!
