Orient Community Schools Class of 1961 reunion

Nine members of the Orient Community Schools Class of 1961, pictured above, met on September 25th at the Old Hotel in Greenfield. They enjoyed a delicious meal catered by the Olive Branch.

Consolidation was in the process at that time period; Richland, Nevinville, Zion and Orient reorganized to create the Orient Community Schools. This was the only class graduating with that name, with a class of 31 students. Nine classmates have passed and were honored with a special display.

Those in attendance were, back row, from left to right: David Schrodt, Howard Craven, Ron Ross, Jack Pals; front row, from left to right: Karen Draman Farlow, Dan McKinney, Janie Weed Kerr, Carolyn Diers McNichols and Janice Pettigrew Ruhde.
