Great idea for a great cause
The Wadena class of 1963 recently celebrated their 50th class reunion. This civic-minded class toured their old stomping grounds and wondered how they could give back to their hometown. The class thought about it, and decided to challenge each other by donating a dollar per year for their 50th class reunion.
A total of $2,100 was collected and $700 was presented to each of three groups, which include the Wadena County Historical Society, Wadena City Library and the Maslowski Wellness and Research Center.
Terry Lynk and Dwayne Nyhus, who represented the class of 1963, said the challenge worked out so well that their class would like to challenge other classes to do the same.
