WOODVILLE, WI – The Baldwin-Woodville High School Class of 1968 celebrated its 50th class reunion over the Homecoming weekend, September 29.  Some classmates attended the football game and were treated to a tour of the High School building to see the many updates and changes over the past 50 years.  The group gathered for a celebration Saturday night at the Woodville Legion Post 301. 

The turnout was phenomenal with 62 of 93 classmates in attendance.  The class has lost six members, they are:  Susan Martini, Jim Moulton, Marsha Bakke Bishop, Patricia Sittlow Anderson, Tom Marcotte and Ray Kanis.
