Iona Herman Baker recently hosted her 75th reunion for Lake Township High’s Class of 1934 at Otterbein Portage Valley in Pemberville. The gathering included a catered meal prepared by Otterbein’s executive chef Reggie Hall.
Baker was joined by Ethel (Korn) Rideout, Evelyn (Albright) Korn, Pearl (Taylor) Bahnsen, Samuel Layman and Oscar Garner.
Baker noted said that most of the 36 students who graduated with her have attended past reunion from all over the United States but this year, those they dubbed “The Survivors” numbered six and all have stayed local all their lives. The Class of 1934 was the first to go all 12 years of school in the “new” centralized school district instead of starting in a one-room school, Baker said. She noted that for many, it was the first experience with indoor plumbing and riding a school bus.
