All five members of the eighth grade Class of 1963 of Rural School District 59 gathered to celebrate 50 years, Nov. 8. They toured the former schoolhouse one mile north and one mile west of Bowlus and then had dinner at Jordie’s. Joining them was their one living teacher, Irene Lashinski, as well as a few upperclassmen. Pictured are (from left): Julie Opatz Dzieweczynski of West St. Paul, Fr.
