The Cromwell High School Class of 1956 will be having their annual reunion in Wright at Minetties at noon July 21.

With all the class reunions happening in the area, the Carlton County Historical Society is looking for the Cromwell-Wright yearbooks for the following years: all years before 1931, as well as 1932, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1943, 1944, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1974, 1976-1983 and all years after 1983. If you have any of these Cromwellians, please bring them to the CCHS or call me and I can pick them up and deliver them. Thanks.

The CCHS is also looking for donations of old photos, miscellaneous old antique items, old dolls and doll clothing and other clothing. With this in mind, Alice Lake donated her 1958 wedding dress and photo.
