Rangers class of 1957 gathered in Estacada
The Estacada High School class of 1957 had its 65th high school reunion recently at the Eagle Creek Saloon.
As the 17 Rangers walked across the graduation stage, Dwight Eisenhower was serving as president in the Oval Office. "Around the World in 80 Days" won the Academy Award for best picture and Yul Brynner the best actor award for "The King and I" that year. Elvis Presley topped the charts with "All Shook Up" and Pat Boone won fans with his hit "Love Letters in the Sand."
The Estacada Ranger class of 1957 has a yearly reunion, said Jackie Fiske Ralston, who is the only 1957 Ranger living in Estacada and the organizer of the gatherings.
She said the group of 17 started out in first grade together and graduated together. There are 12 students remaining who were able to attend the celebration on Thursday, Aug. 4.
