Washington High School Class of 1968 held its 50-year reunion Sept. 29, 2018, at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Washington. Following a catered dinner, classmates memorialized deceased members and recognized those who had served in the military. Classmates had a chance to map former business locations that had operated on the square during the late 1960s. They also viewed a video of high school memories. DJ Mike McNurlen, of Keota, provided music from the 1960s and ‘70s.
