The class of 1972 gathered at the rural home of Curt and Cindy Plaehn on the evening of Saturday, July 9, to celebrate their 50th class reunion. On Friday night the class hosted a reunion of the Reinbeck High School classes of 1971 through 1975 at the Fox Ridge Winery in rural Traer. Sixty-plus guests traveled from both coasts, northern Wisconsin, and Florida to attend this event. The night was truly memorable with many not seeing other members in almost 50 years.
