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.
