The Grass Valley High School class of 1950 had its 63rd class reunion Sept. 7 at the Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley. Thirty-six former class members and 30 guests enjoyed reminiscing and renewing old friendships. Those traveling long distances to attend included Allen and Janice Horton from Florida; Betty Joe (Majors) and Dr. Bob Roberts from South Dakota. Others traveled from Southern California and various parts of Northern California — as far north as Susanville.
