There were a lot of moments of laughter, reminiscing and friendships renewed when the Gladbrook High School class of 1963 gathered to participate in the 100th anniversary of Corn Carnival on June 17 and 18, 2022. Fourteen members (60 percent of classmates still living) gathered for the grand parade on Friday night. Their float’s theme, which was “100 years = 1 Million Memories,” told the story about how they felt about growing up in the community of Gladbrook. It is noteworthy that over half of the members of the class made the journey from kindergarten to graduation together. The class is proud of its accomplishments in the classroom, vocal and band competitions, drama, and athletics. The boys’ basketball and undefeated football teams were conference champions. Many members of the class went on to accomplished careers in education, farming, the military, law, medicine and business.
