Calhoun High School Class of 1964 celebrates 55 years

Being the vanguard of what is commonly known as the Baby-Boomer Generation, classmates from the 1964 Calhoun High School graduating class gathered again to renew friendships and memories. In the past, the graduates have gathered in Port Lavaca about every ten years to hold a formal reunion and renew friendships. As time seems to pass at a quicker pace, Danny Nunley and Ish Torres lead the effort to gather classmates in Port Lavaca for a 5-year reunion to celebrate fifty-five years since graduation. More than 20 former classmates and their spouses met at the La Antigua Restaurant on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 26, to dine and visit. Although most of those attending remain residents of Calhoun and surrounding counties, other classmates came from as far away as Houston, Austin, Sugar Land, Bay City and Chesapeake, Virginia.
