BIDDEFORD — Every fifth year for the past 55 years, the Biddeford High School Class of 1967 has held a class reunion, which they did again this year.

As always so many different walks of life come together and continue to appreciate and enjoy the experience of long-term friendships. The 55th reunion presented yet another great opportunity for classmates and friends to gather.

On Aug. 19, classmates met in the early hours to play mini-golf at Raptor Falls Mini Golf & Ice Cream in Arundel. In the evening, the gathering moved to the Biddeford-Saco Elks Lodge #1597, for a night of good food by Lucky Loggers, both located in Saco. Classmates enjoyed reminiscing about the “good ol’days” of the 1960s and beyond.

A brief history of the area was presented by Dana Peck and Denis Letellier, two classmates and former Biddeford Historical Society presidents as well.

That evening culminated with the class dinner and dance social at Duffy’s Galley Ballroom located in Old Orchard Beach. The crowd danced the night away to the tunes provided by Bruce Marin of Biddeford. .
