Traveling from Maryland, Arizona, California, Montana, Alaska and many cities in Washington state, Coulee Dam High School Alumni of the Class of 1964 gathered on this past weekend to celebrate the milestone of 50 years since graduation from Coulee Dam High School. The event began with a fellowship time at Pepper Jack's Bar & Grille on Friday evening, Aug. 15. Saturday morning found alumni in the park at the Tribal Museum at a breakfast hosted by Darlene and Ian Wilder of Nespelem. The class then enjoyed a tour of the new school lead by Principal Brandon Byers. Lunch was enjoyed at the Grand Coulee Grill. The class gathered for an evening picnic and fellowship at the park below the Visitor Arrival Center. The class was pleased to have the presence of former teachers: Mr. Casto, Mr. Gilman, Mr. Loe and Mrs. McCormick. At this event, classmates who had passed away were honored. The evening culminated with a group photo and the singing of the Alma Mater. With a committee in place to plan the next gathering, the class said farewell at a brunch held at Pepper Jack's on Sunday morning.
