Rockford Golden R club to induct newest members

Recognize some of these familiar faces? This is the Rockford High School class of 1962.

The Golden R reunion, suggested by Lyle Bennet, was first sponsored in 1987 by the Rockford Area Historical Society in conjunction with Michigan’s Sesquicentennial celebration. Due to the great response from alumni, the original committee, headed by Clarence Blakeslee and Maxine Marcott, voted to make it an annual gathering to be held the last Saturday in June.

This year the class of 1962 will be honored at the annual luncheon held in the Rockford High School cafeteria. Also in attendance will be members of previous graduating classes. Total attendance will exceed 325 this year. The Golden R Club also awards a scholarship to a high school senior. Each year, 35 former grads volunteer to bring the event to fruition.
