The Class of 1953 of the Shippensburg High School met at Hoss’s Steak and Sea House in Chambersburg for a Class Reunion Luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 9. It had been an extended period of time since the class had been able to hold any kind of function; COVID turned our world upside down.

With most of us in our 85th year, we have learned to appreciate more each day the God-given gift of life and time on our Planet Earth. We thought it would be nice to just get together, eat and have fellowship with classmates, for those who were able.
