On Sunday, August 22 the 2021 Buckteen all-class reunion was held at the auxiliary gym at Buchanan High School. Anyone who has been out of Buchanan High School for over 40 years is invited to the reunion. Over 491 Buchanan Alumni registered for the event. The “Most Senior representatives” were Marie Kangas (102) and Geneva Swem (99).
A great time was had by all.
The high school band played the National Anthem, the Buchanan Fight song (Go You Buchanan), and the military songs for each branch of service. Barbara Voyles sang along with them.
Other pics are of Jerry walking Ms. Marie Kangas to her seat at the Honor table, which had the classes of 1937 through 1951. Also a pic of Jerry walking Ms. Geneva Swem to her seat. Between all those at the Honor table, it has been anywhere from 70 to 84 years since they have graduated.

Classes of 1970 & 1971 were honored for 50th reunion. (We didn’t have Buckteens last year due to Covid so we celebrated both classes)
Classes of 1980 & 1981 as the newcomers that graduated 40 years ago.
