The Luverne High School Class of 1954 gathered on July 17 in celebration of their 50th class reunion. After meeting at Luverne High School for a memory-filled tour, the classmates then assembled at the Chicken Shack banquet room for further festivities. Approximately 24 classmates and 20 spouses/friends attended the reunion.

After being welcomed back to Luverne by Mayor Joe Rex Sport, each classmate stood and gave a short speech about themselves. Then Mrs. Lillellen Hicks Wise gave a presentation honoring the deceased classmates.

The music for the occasion was performed by Edgar Stewart's Combo, a classmate, and was enjoyed throughout the evening by everyone. At the end of the evening, Edgar presented each classmate with a CD of the 40s, 50s and 60s music, which he had performed.
