Nampa, Idaho, High School Class of 1957 Reunion Site

A 65-year reunion picnic of the Nampa, Idaho, High School Class of 1957 was held the afternoon of Thursday, September 8, 2022, at the Maple Grove Shelter in Lakeview Park.

Of our 342 classmates, as of the date of the picnic 159 had been reported to have passed away and 37 others have fallen out of contact. Of the remaining 142, contact was confirmed with only 63. Of those, 38 registered for the reunion and 33 attended.

There are group photographs as well as informal snapshots taken by Fred and Ann Deal, Carol Chitwood, and Frances (Hahn) Krommenhock (who also did much of the work arranging the reunion and coordinating the committee—Thanks, Frances!)

There are also photos from our 55-year and 60-year reunions. In 2017 Frances took snapshots at the Friday evening meet and greet and group photographs on Saturday. Fred Deal took snapshots at the Saturday picnic. In 2012, Frances and Fred Young were the photographers:
