Aggies reunite for 102nd time

MENOMONIE — Dunn County School of Agriculture and Domestic Science, or Aggie, had our 102nd reunion at The Moose on Saturday, Sept. 18 at noon. The school closed in 1957, there have been no graduates in 64 years, so it was remarkable that 54 people were signed up to attend. Effects of COVID kept two attendees from being there, one actually with the disease, the other on lock down in her residence.

President, Lois Sipple called the meeting to order at noon. Marv Olson, secretary and treasurer, gave his reports, then Lois announced that a co-president would be needed. She is stepping down from the job and Don Olson will take over as president next year. The classes were called and classes of 1945, 1946, 1950, 1951, 1955, and 1956 were honor classes.

We weren’t able to have a reunion last year because of COVID, so more classes were honored. Rose Lutzen Frenchik was the only one present from the Class of 1945. Don Sipple was from the Class of 1946.

From Class of 1950 were Sid Sivertson, Janet Steinmeyer Carter, Delima Grundman Sorenson, and Lois Trainor Sipple. Edith Johnson Hinn was from 1951.

The Class of 1955 included Jeanette Gleiter Myers, Jean Lierman Hatalla, Larry Litzkow, Clyde Douglas, Margaret Quilling Douglas, Dorothy Walter Schneider, and Jean Vasey represented her husband, Don Vasey.

From the Class of 1956 were Larry Hintzman and Tom Lierman. Carroll Beguhn was the oldest person present. He went to Aggie for two years, then graduated from Menomonie High School in 1943. He likes our reunions better, so comes to ours.

Our reunion is open to all who graduated from Aggie, or went to Aggie and for one reason or another, did not graduate. If you would like to attend our reunion next year on the 3rd Saturday in September (the 17th), call Lois Sipple, Marv Olson or Don Olson.
