BUCKHANNON — A group of graduates from the Buckhannon-Upshur High School Class of 1956 recently sat on the bench they had purchased for their 65th reunion. Of the 186 members from the graduating class, 112 are deceased and only 74 members are still living.
Some classmates either moved away or were unable to be present during the meeting to reconnect while reminiscing on memories. The class meets on the third Wednesday of every month for lunch to stay in touch with one another and keep a close bond.
The bench currently resides between the Buckhannon Welcome Innovation Center and the Wilson Martino office building located on Main Street.
