The area’s largest annual high school party took place Tuesday, Sept. 12 at St. George’s Banquet Hall.

A total of about 335 Morrison R. Waite High School’s alumni, family and friends were present at the 17th Golden Years Luncheon.

The idea of a combined luncheon for those celebrating their high school reunion of 50 years or more was proposed by Class of 1949 alumnus Robert “Bob” Yenrick in 2000, after his graduating class celebrated its 50th reunion. As a result, the first annual Golden Years Luncheon was held in Maumee on Sept. 12, 2001.

No results found.
