KHS Class of 1967 alumni and their guests gathered in Killdeer July 2, 3, and 4 to celebrate their 50th reunion. The Buckskin Banquet hall, hosting 48 diners, took on a vintage look Sunday night complete with bowls of nostalgic candy, a memorabilia table, orange carnations, and a memorial table set to honor the eleven class members who have died since graduation. Online radio DJ Phoenix Star, Danyl LeViege and his wife, the class valedictorian, Peggy (Regeth) LeViege, provided oldies background music. Danyl was live on the air and reported listeners tuning in to our festivities from all over the U.S. and several continents.
Monday, July 3rd, Superintendent Gary Wilz offered an interesting two-hour tour of the Killdeer School, where everyone marveled at the school’s positive growth and changes. The rest of the day was spent decorating the class float at Dwight and Karen Saborosky’s. Dunn County Museum in Dunn Center also opened for those interested in a tour. Many later enjoyed the rodeo and finally, live bands at the Buckskin, Cultural Center, and 2 7/8.
July 4th, several classmates participated in a golf scramble at the Killdeer Golf Course. The BBQ at the Cultural Center offered more opportunities for good food and visiting, followed by the Killdeer 4th of July parade. The class of ’67’s float, decorated with orange and black bandanas and oldies music, carried 20 class members as well as two large photo boards memorializing classmates who died.
KHS class of 1967 wishes to thank the Killdeer community for the fine western hospitality. Everyone agreed it was the best reunion ever! Plans are to gather in 5 years for another get together. Go Cowboys!
