YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED to a social gathering of the WHS Class of 1966 on Thursday, May 12, starting between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m., at Fargo’s Pizza Company located at 2910 East Platte Avenue in Colorado Springs. 

“Are we at the stage that we need to have name badges to try to recognize everyone?” asked Bruce McAlexander in his somewhat serious and joking manner. “That tells me that it has been too long again,” he added in reference to the nine months since the historic reunion last year in August 2021.

Our events (luncheons, reunions, etc.) are always open to people from all WHS classes of the 1960s, so please know that you are welcome even if you did not graduate with us.

In addition to a variety of pizzas, the Fargo’s menu includes a variety of sandwiches, pastas, soups, salads, and desserts. 

So that the restaurant can make advance plans to put all attendees together, please RSVP no later than Sunday, May 8, via email to:


At this time 60 years ago, many of our classmates were getting ready for our final year at Sproul Junior High School in preparation to start our first year at Widefield High School in the fall 1962. At this time 50 years ago, several of our classmates were in the early years of jobs related to their respective college degrees. Some of our classmates were in their early years of marriage or making wedding plans. Some of our classmates were on the battle fields due to the U.S. war in Vietnam. Some of our classmates were still trying to figure out what they wanted to do with their respective lives.
