The Rugby High School Class of 1959 assembled in Rugby on May 23 to celebrate its 55th anniversary. These 22 classmates, along with some 13 spouses, enjoyed a social hour and buffet dinner at Dakota Farms Restaurant. They reassembled the next morning for brunch at Coffee Cottage before bidding farewell and going their separate ways. There were 68 graduates in the class in 1959. The class last assembled in 2009 for their 50th anniversary. There was also an informal gathering in 2011 during the All-City 125-year celebration. All activities were planned, arranged and coordinated by class president Larry Fjellanger and the local reunion committee, which includes Duane Johnston, Judy Marlene Axtman, Judy Ann Axtman and Theresa Kuntz.
