Gresham High School 50-year reunion Saturday, August 18, 2007

Every year, a group of Gresham High School alumni gets together for a reunion. But this gathering isn't open to just anyone who walked the halls of Gresham's oldest secondary school. You don't have to have played for a sports team, graduated with honors, or been a member of the drama club to get an invitation to this event. You just have to have graduated at least 50 years ago.

You might think that such an exclusive reunion would be small, but it isn't. Nearly 500 people were on hand Aug. 11 as the group welcomed the class of 1957 at the Portland Airport Holiday Inn. Marian Tillstrom Caldwell represented the class of 1930, the oldest in attendance.

You can read more about the reunion and see additional photos in the current edition of The Outlook.
