* Cory High School

The Cory High School Alumni Association held their 100th celebration at the Perry Township firehouse on May 9, 2008.

The school colors of Black and Gold were used to decorate the tables and baskets of Apples were given as door prizes. A social hour preceded our meal and meeting.

Jan Streeter Myers, President welcomed everyone and thanked all the "helpers" that made the evening possible.

A memorial service was held in remembrance of alumni lost in 2008-09. Those remembered were: Sylvia Bloomfield Jeffers, Edith Albright Wyatt, Marjorie McCullough Gard, Rosemary Steuerwald Russell, Marjorie Etta Harr Huter, Roy Stewart, William Joslin, Veraldine Seymour Musgrave, Estella Stewart Whitlock, Venus Smith Stevenson and John Lawson.

Bob Clifton gave the invocation. Our meal was catered by Lois Bixler. We severed 175 alumni and guest.

The Class of 1959 were honored on their 50 year anniversary.

Those present were Mary Lou Kaelber Sullivan, Sue Ellis Wiram, Rosalie Roeschlein Collins, Roy Rector, Virgil Nicoson, Casey Collins, Bob Jones and Jerry Morgan.

Former teachers of Cory High School were invited to attend the banquet. Those present were Dr. Edmond Bowling and his wife Betty, Marjory Stoelting and Caroline McCullough and her husband Mack. Dr. Bowling said a few words that were both touching and meaningful.

New Officers for 2010 were elected:

President -- Barbara Slater Plessinger,

Vice-President -- Jan Streeter Myers,

Sec./Tres. -- Sandy Marshall Davidson, and

Assistant Sec./Tres. -- Wayne Stoops.

Gift cards were given to the oldest man and women present and to the person that traveled the farthest. They were: Rosemary Harr Barnhart, Gerald Kester and Joanna Kester (Calif).

John Jackson entertained us with some interesting facts about the original Cory High School building and the basket ball teams this school cheered for over the years.

We closed the meeting with Greta Jackson-Bechtel and Shane Jackson-Anderson leading us in the Cory High School spirit song.

Bob Clifton gave the Benediction.

A good time was had by all and we hope to see everyone next year. Please bring more of your fellow school mates.

Our banquet for 2010 will be May 8, 2010. Hope to see you there.
