A bit of history about the 50 Plus Club
It appears that the "50 Plus Club," as we have known it the past
several years, began as "The Scotia Alumni Association" with Kenneth
M. Lindsay, class of 1924, as president;
Kenneth E. Buhrmaster, class of 1933, as vice president; Ralph C.
Klapper, class of 1932, as secretary; and Chester S. Darrow, class
of 1932, as treasurer.
Earliest available records indicate a "Scotia Alumni Association
Reunion" was held in 1939. Other available records detail a "Scotia
High School Alumni Dinner (The 50 Year Plus)" was held June 8, 1977
and June 7, 1978 at the Walhalla Country Club. Next available
records show that from 1985 through 1988, "50 Year Plus Club
reunions" were held at the Edison Club.
Since 1989, the "50 Plus Club" has been holding an annual reunion at
the Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia.
