Dighton Rehoboth Class of 1967 Celebrates 50th Reunion


Dighton Rehoboth Regional High School Class of 1967 celebrated their 50th class reunion on June 24, 2017 at Seggregansett Country Club in Taunton, MA. In attendance were 51 classmates plus their partner/friend . Music was supplied by the Spellbinders with band leader Bruce Perry one of our classmates.

Committee members from near and far have worked on this event for over a year with the help of modern technology to put this momentous event together. Don Backlund, our local insurance guru, offered his office for meetings and conference calls which we used to communicate with committee members, Susan Hayward Bleckley from Newport Beach, CA, who designed the ball jar mugs, Norma Rubadou Ganderson , from Syracuse, NY, one of our detectives who along with Janet Gooch Lottmann, from Pt, Charlotte, FL, Agent 67, both worked tirelessly tracking “lost classmates”. Jane Collinson Eddy and her husband Paul from Ole Cape Cod, MA, designed the bookmarks and Mary Lou Harwood from Taunton . Steve Perry, from Rehoboh, yes, there are a couple that live in town! He did a lot of door to door when we could not reach classmates by phone. It worked because we were able to reach out to more classmates. Gloria Perry Malo, from Rehoboh, our fearless leader, organized the entire event . She worked from a tray table in her living room with her lap top and spent many late or should we say early mornings searching for classmates.

Doug Kelly, Athletic Director, gave a group of us a tour of DR in the morning. Many of us had not been back since walking out on the day of graduation. It was nice to see the improvements to the school and relive some old memories as we walked through the halls.

A good time was had by all and new memories were made which will hold us until we meet again.
