About 250 former graduates of Calhoun County High School attended the 31st Alumni Reunion in Arnoldsburg, recalling class mottoes from "Onward and Upward" to "Be Happy-Go Wacky."
The group had a meeting recognizing certain classes followed by a luncheon and min-reunions.
Organizers are saying this could be the last reunion with a lack of volunteer support, a number of the longtime supporters have died and others say they are unable to work on the project.
Most of the time was spent reuniting and talking about
