Other classmates attending, all from Pennsylvania, included Betty Behler Green, Helen Stevko Behler, Susie Garcia Babyak, Josie Siverski Babyak, Eugene Hankee, Leah Hefflefinger Davis, Frank Johannes, Bob Kunda, Delores Mendez and Dolores Muniz Rabenold.
Also attending were Franklin Neff, Paul Pastier, Anna Psarsky Richmond, Frank and Joan Smith Smida, Phyllis Shiner Coombe, Bella and Lois Strohl and Pat Walck.
Class members celebrated 2013 and their 80th birthdays by reminiscing about their high school days in Palmerton, while enjoying an old-fashioned country style dinner.
The class hopes to meet again in three years for their 65th.
