The Madera High Class of 1949 held its 65th reunion with nearly 40 classmates attending the event. According to chairperson Norma Mastin, organizers try to hold the reunion every five years. This year’s event was a luncheon Saturday at the Vineyard Restaurant.
“It is so nice to see this many of my classmates, out of the 180 that graduated, still be able to attend,” said Mastin.
Those in attendance included former Madera school teachers Janette Lansing and Mastin. After college, Lansing returned to Madera to teach third grade at Washington School and later Alpha School. Mastin taught biology at Madera High School for many years.
Charles Cox traveled from Yuma, Ariz., to attend the event, but Hazel Brockman Kincy came from even a greater distance. She traveled with her son, Steven Fenters, from Jamestown, Ohio, to see her classmates again...
