by Louise Harrington


July 12, 2004

Ketchikan, Alaska - The Kayhi Class of 1964 gathered over the 4th of July weekend to celebrate their 40th reunion. Sitnews caught up with them during a picnic held at the Ketchikan home of Judy (Henley) Berg (Class of '62). Back in 1964 the editors of the class yearbook wrote in the front: "We, the staff of the 1964 Williwaw, hope you will always find pleasant memories in our book."
