CHS class of 1961 just keeps on meeting

Although every graduating class at Claremont High School is unique, with many graduates going on to productive careers, the class of 1961 was a very special group of people.

Already profiled in the COURIER after their 50th reunion in 2011, these CHS grads have continue to meet every year, although moved their meeting place away from Claremont to Newport Beach for logistical reasons. Now after just finishing their 56th reunion, the group has become close friends all over again. Of the 217 members of the graduating class, 55 classmates met this year, bringing the total to 90 when including spouses and friends. Longtime Claremont resident Donna Westlund and 1961 graduate said it perfectly. “We are all getting old physically, but not in our hearts. We loved our high school and our years in Claremont.”

And preparations are already being made for July 2018 with another reunion planned in Newport Beach. Are there any other 1961 CHS grads out there? For more information, please call Sharon Esterley at (949) 759-9022.
