The Union High School Class of 1968 celebrated their 50th class reunion on Farmer’s Day weekend. 

On Friday June 1st, 10 members of our class participated in a golf tournament with the UHS Class of 1969 at the Fountain Springs golf course.

Saturday June 2nd, we entered a float in the Farmer’s Day parade, with over 20 class members participating, what a good showing from our class.

Saturday evening we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Dutch Haus Restaurant   at the Elks Club in Lewisburg. During that time we remembered the class mates we have lost.  We also honored the members of our class that were veterans or served as police officers.  We also awarded three class scholarships to grandchildren of the members of the Class of 1968.

Sunday, June 3rd, we finished our weekend with a covered dish dinner at Trinity UMC in Pickaway.

The Class of 1968 was unique because it was the first graduating class after Monroe County consolidated Gap Mills, Greenville, and Union.  We made lifelong friends with students we would never have met otherwise, and made our senior year memorable.

During the weekend events over 33 class members participated.

Classmates and their families enjoyed good food, reminiscing, and lots of laughs.
