The La Salle-Peru Township class of 1942 is determined not to lose touch even though it has been more than 70 years since the group walked the halls of the school together.

While time and age have tried to separate the class, two best friends, Lucille Easton and Nora Weber, have spent recent years organizing and planning get-togethers to keep the class of ’42 connected.

At a luncheon Wednesday, about 15 individuals from the class reminisced about old times and how times have changed, with Easton and Weber sitting at the head of the table.

Throughout the years, Easton and Weber have planned all the class reunions, with one time nearly 200 of the 265 students who graduated in 1942 attending the reunion.
Now, every September, members of the class will have a luncheon because many of the members can only get out during the day, Easton said.

This year, the luncheon was at the Village Café, Peru.
