WOODVILLE, WI – The Woodville High School class of 1951 celebrated their 66th Class Reunion at Pegs in Wilson recently. 

1951 was an interesting year with the Korean War raging; Patti Page had the number one hit in January with “Tennessee Waltz.” On February 27, the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, limiting Presidents to two terms, was ratified. March 12 saw Hank Ketcham's best-selling comic strip Dennis the Menace appear in newspapers across the United States for the first time. On March 29 Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage. On April 5 they were sentenced to receive the death penalty.

And on March 31, Remington Rand delivered the first UNIVAC I computer.

U.S. President Harry S. Truman relieved General Douglas MacArthur of his Far Eastern commands on April 12, 1951.

As the Class of 1951 prepared for graduation in the spring, the first atomic bomb "boosted" by the inclusion of thermonuclear materials, is tested in the "Item" test on Enewetok Atoll in the Marshall Islands by the United States on May 25, 1951.

Those attending the 66th Reunion of the Class of 1951 of Woodville High School were Rachel and JohnTerkelson, Violette Johnson Weeber, Evelyn Clothier Muffett, Evelyn Nelson Wallesverd, Delores Nelson Thompson and Larry Larson. Great fellowship and memories were shared.
