Neillsville High School (Class of 1925 - 1970)

Their fifth reunion since graduation from Neillsville High School in 1925 will be held at Bali Hai Supper club, east of Neillsville on Highway 10, Saturday, June 27.

Thirty or more of the class which numbered 54 are expected to attend, according to co-chairmen, Calvin Mills of Owen, and Francis Schweinler of Madison. Eight of the graduates of that class are deceased. Members are scattered from Massachusetts to California.

Among the guests expected will be Sen. William C. Hansen of Stevens Point. Sen. Hansen, former president of Wisconsin State University at Stevens Point, was superintendent of the Neillsville schools at the time the class graduated.

The class had no reunion until 1950, when I held it’s first. Since that time, however, it has held a reunion every five years. Among its well-known members still in the area, or in the area until recently are: Fred E. Wall, John Mattson, Oscar W. (Dimps) Gluck, Jacob H. Hoesly, Mrs. Clair Smale, Joe Haas and Harry (Boney) Frantz. Frantz recently left Neillsville to take residence in Osceola. Also in the group was Harry Hauge of Mosinee, former Neillsville florist; and Mrs. Allen C. (Marie) Covell, a resident of Wiesbaden, Germany.
