An informal evening was hosted on July 27 at the home of Dale and Pauline Newlon on Ward Road. Activities July 28 included attending the annual All-Alumni Picnic at the current Elkins High School, prior to a formal dinner at the Elkins Motor Lodge. During the evening, tribute was paid to the deceased classmates, and awards were given to the two newlywed couples — Ben and Sue Siler and Connie and Tony Jenkins. Events on July 29 closed with a farewell brunch at the 1863 Tavern. The class of 1957 prides itself as being the last class to enter the old EHS as freshmen, since the Elkins Junior High (now known as the middle school) opened the following year. A total of 49 classmates, along with 20 guests/spouses, attended the three-day event.
