Independence High School Alumni Association

Upcoming Reunions...

Class of 1956

Annually we have a Class of 1956 luncheon in Brecksville. (We wanted to have it in Independence but no restaurant met our needs.) There’s a small but faithful number that attend. One class member comes from California, another from South Carolina, and I come from Minnesota. The others that attend are primarily from Ohio. Every year there are more canes, walkers and hearing aids in use but we still have a good time reminiscing and catching up with current events in our lives!

Attention Class of 1975. Please save the date of Friday, October 25. It will be our 50th anniversary of beating the Brecksville Bees in football.  This exciting event happened exactly 50 years ago to the day. We plan to go to the IHS game that night and then out to dinner afterwards.
