The former reunion committee of the Class of 1937 of Hoover High School no longer plans reunions but meets every three months for lunch to keep up longtime friendships.
Their most recent event was a Christmas luncheon at the La Canada Flintridge home of Tom French. As of September, all 11 members had reached the age of 91, two already 92. All but one of the 11 still drive, and all are active in one or several activities, such as travel, bridge, organizations and volunteering.
Clara Mae Tronowsky thinks her classmates are "a most amazing group of seniors."
Classmate Inez Truger was born in Glendale. Tronowsky met Les Jonkey in the third grade at Columbus Elementary School, and French at Mark Keppel Elementary School in 1929, the year that school opened.
