WILMINGTON — The Wilmington High School class of 1974 held their 45th class reunion July 19-20.

The group gathered Friday night at the Third Friday Party in downtown Wilmington. Saturday night the reunion continued at Cherry Bend Pheasant Farm where 50 classmates and spouses enjoyed an appetizer buffet by Shoelaces Catering.

The class was joined by longtime educators Fred and Caroline Matthews.

The group paused to recognize military members as well as those classmates who have passed on.

Thanks to local merchants’ donations, many door prizes were given out.
