Downey High reunion

Dear Editor:Last weekend over 100 members of Downey High's class of '57 had a fabulous time in Downey. We took a campus tour on Friday afternoon, led by four charming young Lady Vikings. There have been alot of positive changes at the high school. The school looked great. Next came the Viking Sports Reunion mixer at the Embassy Suites, an event that has been held yearly since 1985. Then came the football game between Downey and Gahr. Halftime with the marching band and flag girls was outstanding. Overall we felt the "Viking Spirit" from the student body. Saturday night at the Rio Hondo Event Center we gathered for a night of great memories. Three long time reunion committee members, Anne Rank, Kay Wilde and Carolyn Weigand organized another amazing and memorable event. Harley Widmark gave me an autographed football from the 1956 CIF Championship football game. We have Viking memories for a lifetime. Lash Stevenson Downey High School, class of '57
