Class of 1966 celebrates 70th birthdays

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 by PAUL CMIL in School

Tunes from the late 1960s chased kids out of North Catasauqua William J. Albert Memorial Park when members of Catasauqua High School’s Class of 1966 — the school’s largest class — celebrated their 70th birthdays Sept. 15.

Brenda (Schenkel) Henning is the organizer for these special class events.

“We had a party for our 50th anniversary, and we celebrated when everyone turned 66,” she said.

Henning thinks this is the most active CHS class. Some of the other classes of the high school jump into the celebration.
