Around Ravenna: Reunions and Christmas history

The Ravenna High School class of 1957 celebrated its 65-year reunion. It was held in July at the West Main Street Winery in Ravenna and catered by Guido’s. Twelve classmates and spouses attended from as far away as Florida. Another gathering is planned for Dec. 28.

In attendance are front row, from left, Janet McGuckin, Libby Plum, Lucille DeLuca, Jane Minard, Pat Wilcox and Gail Hughes; and back row, Russ Romano, Dan Rhodes, Sharron Dietz, Joyce Sferra, Dick Wilcox and Bill Conroy.

Plan on attending the Portage County Historical Society’s 2nd annual Christmas Walk from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 17 and 18 at the Society, 6549 N. Chestnut St., Ravenna.
Children will be able to visit with Santa on both days.

Tickets can be purchased at Susie K’s Cafe, the West Main Street Winery, both in Ravenna, and at the door. Tickets are $10 per person or $20 per family, which will include a one year membership to the historical society.

In addition, speakers will be Jim Wade, Richard Whitmore and Wayne Enders. This year’s Walk will be presented by Grange and Brimfield Insurance.
