The Baraboo High School Class of 1957 held its 50 year reunion on Saturday, September 22, 2007, with Lois and Roy Luther providing a lovely farm setting on a beautiful, sunny day.   The Luthers arranged hayrides for all and dancing and entertainment in the barn with the fabulous Swing Crew.   Roy's relatives and particularly his sisters, Irene and Carol, made this a memorable event with their hard work and fantastic decorating ideas.   The Class of '57 had 151 graduating members and has sadly suffered the loss of 28 classmates.  This reunion was attended by 74 classmates with a total attendance of 130, coming from Wisconsin, Maine, California, Arkansas, Michigan, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Virginia, Colorado, Illinois, Florida, New Mexico and Arizona.   Special guests included two of our teachers, Cole Felmlee and Richard Bates.   A Researcher from the University of Wisconsin presented information regarding the ongoing 50 year study it has conducted of 1957 Wisconsin high school graduates, which includes a number of our classmates.   Details of this study can be viewed online (Google: Wisconsin Longitudinal Study).   A Friday gathering was held at Bonzo's and Sunday brunch was enjoyed at The Farm Kitchen.  The Class of '57 was pleased to present a class gift of $7,000.00 to the Baraboo Public Library.               - by Diana "Stewie" Zick
