Class reunion

Dear Editor:
Reunions are special. On Oct. 13, the Downey High class of 1957 will be having their 55-year reunion at the Rio Hondo Event Center.
On Friday night at the Embassy Suites, there will be a gathering of classmates and friends to celebrate the “Viking Sports Reunion,” which was started in 1985. The main purpose was to remember the Viking spirit that we have and the great memories of going to Downey High.
A special event happened in 1956, the CIF football championship game played between Downey and Anaheim that ended in a 13-13 tie before 41,000 people at the Los Angeles Coliseum. A night to remember.
