It seems like every few days I wind up at McCollar Jewelry where we usually wind up talking about plans for the MHS class of ’55 60th class reunion (my mom taught some of the classmates in Donnelly) so I have learned a lot of class history such as the fact he was on the first Tiger basketball team that went to the state tournament. He says he has tentative confirmation from about a dozen of them that are planning on coming. We are looking for pictures for the reunion if you have some or know of somebody that does, send them to McCollar Jewelry 618 Atlantic Ave. Morris MN 56267 or e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
